Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by 180 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great looks and wonderful to use We installed this product last month and we are even more pleased now then when we first purchased it. It is very well manufactured and installation was a breeze. All of the fittings went on without any additional trips to the hardware store and it took me less than an hour to remove our old one and install the new delta faucet. We entertain a lot and the new touch technology is great since we do not have to reach and play with the control valve. Just touch it and it is on and touch again and it is off. The visual temperature level is also a great feature knowing what temperature the water is at. All in all I would highly recommend this product. June 27, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Touch2O Faucet Leaking Just installed 6-8 weeks ago, faucet started leaking today after I touched it "off." Can't be the 'manual' valve at the faucet; turning to full off at point works fine. None of the supply lines are leaking. Solenoid wires aren't touching. Worked perfect until now. Went to use faucet this morning but after using the Touch 2.0 I have a leaky faucet - steady for the last 30 mins. Is this a solenoid issue? Are my batteries failing already? Help? Too much money paid for this to be failing. Had replaced an old school faucet that went 8 years before any issues. Didnt get the Pilar, I got the other one - can't remember the exact name. DOUBLE HELP??? March 26, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Faucet dribbles I loved my touch faucet initially, except that it never worked properly when the indicator light was connected. No big deal though, I just unplugged it and it worked fine. Until a few months ago. Recently when I try to touch on, it either does nothing or just trickles water. After multiple tries it will sometimes work, though other times I just have to abandon it and come back later. Additionally, sometimes it only turns on when I touch the lower part of the faucet or the handle, but not when I touch the main part. It seems to be getting worse and I'm about ready to scrap the whole thing after about 2 years of use. April 13, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Looks great, works ok This faucet is gorgeous and beautiful and I love it even though the touch feature is picky, moody and iffy. The handle works by touch about 90% of the time. The spout worked at about 70% for a week and now is about a 5%. I don't use the feature much anymore since it doesn't work very well. Sometimes the water just turns off. it turned off when I walked away for a second but then sometimes it turns off when I am standing right there. Is there a motion sensor somewhere? I just can't figure it out. I love this faucet even though the touch doesn't work very well. The temp light indicator is cool. Price is outrageous at $700, especially for one that doesn't work well. August 6, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Faulty Faucet Destined for the Dump I really want to keep this faucet, but my husband has always hated it. The one in the bathroom (538T-DST) has a leak that will never stop and eroded away most of the pretty part of the faucet in the first one year. Now the one in the kitchen, this 980T-SSSD-DST Pilar Single Handle Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet with Touch2O Technology and Soap- Stainless model, spent a few months not turning off when we touched it. Recently it won't let any water through the faucet! I am frantically searching for a post or manual to tell me how to get my kitchen sink back. Help! What has happened? What should I replace my sink with? June 23, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Touch faucet sputtering We have a Delta Touch Faucet in our kitchen. Have been very happy with it up until recently when it started sputtering. I tried changing to new batteries thinking the solenoid might not have enough power but that did not solve the issue. Most of the time when turned on it has intermittent/sputtering flow with high frequency pulsation. Fairly high mineral content in the water here in Austin, but this has only been installed for 1.5 years. No other faucets in the house show this issue. What can I do to correct the issue? August 14, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great product both in looks and functionality This is a great faucet, and completes the look to my kitchen. It's the 2nd Delta pull-down faucet we've had and I love the functionality. The touch design is great, and I love it when my hands are a mess as I don't have to touch the lever. The only thing I think Delta could do to help this design would be to turn the spray option off when the water is shut off. Sometimes I have something very close to the spout when I turn the water on, and when its left in the spray mode it sprays all over. July 8, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Terrible product This is our second touch faucet, the first one shorted out right away, the second one we just installed wont even respond to the touch..... I so wished I would have found this site to review before purchasing would have saved so much grief, thank goodness my husband has amazing patience. So incredibily disappointed...... One thing I do notice in all the complaints, every response from Jon is "so sorry, sent you an Email" would like to see how others issue have been resolved.... October 25, 2015

Answer: 
Hi Linda, Thank you for your question!
This faucet includes an integrated handle limit stop that has two positions. Position 1, to the left, allows full handle motion (the full range between “all cold” to “all hot”). The faucet
is set in position 1 in the factory. Position 2, to the right, allows half of the normal handle
motion (“all cold” to “mixed hot/cold”).
The handle limit stop can be adjusted by the homeowner once the faucet is installed.
Setting the handle limit stop in position 2 may help to prevent scalding because it limits
the amount of hot water in the mix; however, this handle limit stop will not always prevent
scalding because it does not compensate for incoming pressure or sudden water
temperature changes.
To change positions of the handle limit stop: remove the handle; move the valve stem
to the all cold position so the water is on; change the position of the handle limit stop; turn
off the water; reinstall the handle.

Best regards, Brandis

The TempSense light stays blue. It does not change colour when the water temp changes

Hi,

I bought the 980T-SD-DST. I love this tap but the light stays blue even when the water is hot. Is the solenoid defective?

Hi DeltaRocks!,

Thank you for your question! The function of the light has been updated. Units manufactured prior to 2015 will show a blue light when the water is running and a red light when the batteries need to be replaced.

Answer: 
Hi unity,

Thank you for your question. The check valves are required with this unit, since the handle is left in the on position when the faucet is off. They will not affect the flow rate through the faucet or the water pressure elsewhere in the home.

Jon

how can I adjust my faucet so there is more adjustment between scalding hot and cold.

there seems to very little adjustment between scalding and cold,
only a tiny mid-point that is hard to regulate.
What can I do to get more hot-to-cold adjustment ?

Answer: 
Hi Mike, Thank you for your question. Turning the faucet to high flow to set the temperature will give you wider range to make the adjustment. You can then lower the water volume once the temperature is at the desired level.

If the arc of the faucet is in contact with a wooden window sill, will this interfere with the Touch Feature?

I am considering purchasing this model of faucet, but there is a chance that after installation, the arc of the faucet neck will be in contact or very close (within 1/4") of contacting a wooden window sill that is located behind the faucet. Will this interfere with the touch feature of the faucet?

Answers

Answer: 
Hi Jan, Thank you for your question. Here are some Frequently Asked Questions anout Touch2O Technology.
1
How do I turn it off and on?
You may choose to operate the faucet as you would any standard single-handle faucet by moving the handle to the on and off positions. You may also tap it on and off with a deliberate touch, like that of playing the piano.
2
How do I control water flow?
You control water flow manually with the handle, just as you would operate any standard faucet. When operating the faucet in “Touch” mode, the water flow setting remains the same as the previous use.
3
How do I control water temperature?
You control the water temperature manually with the handle, just as you would any standard faucet. When operating the faucet in “Touch” mode, the water temperature setting remains the same as the previous use.
4
Are there any safety features?
Touch2O® Technology incorporates an automatic water flow shut-off after four minutes if the water is left running with no activity.
5
Do I need an electrician? What about a plumber?
No. The installation process is just like installing a regular pull-down faucet with an addition of one more component and a few easy-to-connect wires. Because the faucet works on batteries, there is no need to hire an electrician to assist with the installation. Even the batteries are included. With DIAMOND™ Seal Technology, the integrated supply lines mean everything is included in the box.
6
What’s the difference between Touch2O® and Touch2O.xt™ Technology?
You know that static discharge you experience in the winter after walking on carpet and then touching a metal object? That is the result of a characteristic for storing energy in the human body called “capacitance.” Touch2O® Technology uses capacitance sensors to detect human touch and turn the faucet on and off. But don’t worry, it won’t give you a static poke!

If you have additional questions please contact our toll free Helpline at 1-800-345-3358 for further assistance.

Answer: 
Please note that the answer to question 6 doesn't match the question (presumably a copy/paste error).

From what I understand, the difference between Touch2O and Touch2O.xt is that the latter *additionally* offers touch-*less* operation through a proximity sensor (wave your hands underneath the spout to activate).
