Water flow is reduced to a trickle. How do I remove the aerator/screen to check for debris that may be blocking flow
Dear Leigh Hensel,
Thank you for your question. The aerator assembly of your Delta Lahara Lavatory 538T-DST faucet, can be removed from the end of the spout, using the provided plastic wrench (RP52217) that came with the faucet.

My faucet turns on and off when I get anywhere near it. How can I turn off the no-touching mode to make it only respond to touch?
Thank you for your question.
There is a way to turn off the touch proximity setting. Here are the instructions:
1. Put the handle in the off position
2. Wait 5 seconds
3.Tap the spout 6 times within 4 seconds.
4. Notice the light flashes red & blue
5. As soon as the light stops flashing, tap the spout 6 times within 4 seconds.
Prox mode is now off.
To turn Prox mode on, follow the above steps.

If this faucet it turned on manually and left on, will it turn off automatically, or just remain on indefinitally?
Thank you for your question! With the Touch2O feature on, the faucet will need to be activated by touch or proximity, and will automatically shut off after 2 minutes. In manual mode (power supply removed) the faucet will not automatically shut off.

Why is supplied pop up needed?
I'd rather not pull apart the plumbing under my sink. The installation manual says that the supplied pop up is required for proper function. Why?
Hi SK, Thank you for your question!
The pop up assembly supplied with the faucet is manufactured to work with the touch faucet. Other pop ups may interfere with the touch technology.
Best regards, Brandis

Can this faucet turn on manually. I am considering purchasing it for my mom's bathroom. She has Alzheimer's and I want to make sure she does not leave the faucet running all day.
Hi Delta Fan, Thank you for your question. You can place the model 538T-RB-DST in manual mode by turning the faucet on and with the water running disconnect the battery pack. If the faucet is left on in the Touch mode it will only run for 1 minute with no activity before shutting itself off.

Battery pack location
The installation manual shows the battery pack on the bottom of the cabinet, 2 inches away from the back, and 2 inches away from the side.
I anticipate this location is going to be problematic for me. I have Container Store boxes that I slide into the cabinet. They will bump into the battery pack and rip it up.
Even if I initially remember not to this, I'm certain someone else will forget.
What problem would be caused by taping the battery pack to the back of the cabinet wood ?
Hi OceanMist, Thank you for your question. The placement of the battery pack on your model 538T-DST faucet is to keep it a way from plumbing lines and electrical lines that maybe be behind the wall and affect the performance of the faucet. You can try a different placement that solves your issue but does not affect the touch functions of the faucet.
