Rated 4 out of 5 by 162 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Keeping a coustomer for Life I installed Delta products in my home 15 years ago with the idea of do it right the first time. One of the faucets in our tub devolved a leak and without any issues Delta offered support to address our problem. Yes, it was not my problem it was OUR problem. Delta takes great pride in their quality and product by taking it to the next level. Thanks for standing behind your product and offering great warrantee. Please contact me if you need any additional feedback. Howard Michael HM Motorsports HowardMichaelRacing.com June 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this faucet! Installed faucet in 2009 and until today never had a problem. We called Delta and they are shipping part to fix problem - slow water flow. I would not trade this faucet as it is so convenient to use, especially when you have touched raw meat and want to activate the faucet without touching it. Delta help line has always been responsive and knowledgeable; I am satisfied with both the service and the product. March 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Faucet EVER After several weeks of reading reviews, I decided to take the plunge and get this faucet. I had originally seen it at a home improvement store and thought it was awfully expensive, but I really wanted it! I found it online MUCH cheaper..less than half the price the home improvement store wanted! I read HUNDREDS of reviews on several different sites and was a little leary but thought "what if it works as advertised?". I am SO GLAD I bought this faucet!!!!!!!!!! I love to cook and bake and during the holidays I bake tons of cookies and other goodies to give as gifts. This faucet made all that cooking and baking so much easier! The ease of not having to touch the handle when my hands were covered in dough etc was GREAT! I also love that my fiance, who is the messiest grown up I know doesn't leave the handle all yucky now! The only issue I had was the light wasn't working at first. I called Delta and the person told me to pull the little jack like thing out of the solenoid and reinstall and it worked! I have not had to change the batteries yet. I have had this faucet installed about 7 months now!! EVERYONE that comes to my house and sees the faucet loves it! I think it is a MUST HAVE for avid cooks and bakers and anyone who wants to lessen the risk of spreading germs from icky raw meat! Not having to touch a handle means less transfer of icky germs!!!! I also love the spray feature, I use a lot less dish soap now, the spray function really makes the soap suds up! If you are on the fence about this faucet GET ONE. I am sure you will love it as much as I do!! It is SO WORTH every penny. It is also a very attractive design. It wipes clean very easily..mine is brilliant stainless so water spots dont really show on it. July 7, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pilar Single Handle Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet with Touch2O® Technology and Soap Dispenser (908T-SD-DST) Installed the touch feature faucet as part of a kitchen remodel. Started having issues with the touch feature not working. Went through the basic troubleshooting, wiring, batteries, plumbing, etc. to determine the problem, ultimately being the solenoid. Emailed customer support and they responded within the next business day with an inquiry on model and troubleshooting tips. Once the solenoid was determined to be the problem, they immediately shipped one out, no questions asked. The support was great and I am installing one of these units in my sons house next. I now touch the faucet everywhere I go, thinking they are all touch response. I work in a lot of hospitals and I would think these would be mandated to help alleviate the spread of germs, just a thought. Nice job Jessica with Delta customer support! May 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best faucet ever! This faucet not only looks fantastic but is great when preparing food. No need to worry about contaminating the faucet handle because you can simply touch it with the back of your hand. July 9, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Going strong after 4 years It is coming up to the 5th year of having this faucet installed in my kitchen. Never had an issues and the finish still looks like i just got it out of the box. June 11, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Sink Pulsating I have the delta polar touch less model and it keeps pulsating when on and it happens when the water temp is on both hot and cold. I have replaced the batteries and it is still doing it. Can you please advise how to troubleshoot the issue or if this is a manufacture defect? I have loved my faucet up to this point. Thank you November 7, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Worst fears have come true We installed this faucet in Dec. 2009. Other than needing to change the battery after 2 years have not had any problem, but now the solenoid stopped working. We've done everything the owners manual says to do and still no working faucet. Can't even get it to convert to manual mode. Now I don't have water in my kitchen. Local stores, including big name home improvement stores, DO NOT carry parts. When the solenoid stops working, it doesn't even respond to the manual override steps. We had a good 2.5 years but for the price we paid, we expected longer duration for the solenoid. If Delta can't satisfactorilly help us fix this, it's back to old fashioned manual faucets again. I guess it was too good to be true. Great when it works, but a disaster when it doesn't.

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 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

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).
