Rated 1 out of 5 by from Touch intermittently works We have had this installed for about 6 months and we immediately configured it to not utilize the motion sensor and only use touch. Unfortunately, the touch has been horrible. Sometimes, we can't get it to work at all so we now have a manual pump sitting right next to it. Also, it randomly goes off wasting about half or more of the soap in a full reservoir. We own a touch faucet and love it, why doesn't this work just like that does?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It worth buying Redid kitchen and was excited about this product. This is the third one delta has sent us and they only last a few months. Just my husband and I so no abuse involves. Almost seems like motor is not big enough to push the soap out. Can’t believe delta would put out such a poor product. Beware. DO not buy!!!!!! I can not be more serious about how how bad this product is!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Must be the worst item in Deltas product list. About two years ago we remodeled our kitchen which included this soap dispenser. It was installed by a master plumber and worked fine for about 5 months. After that it began dispensing soap for no apparent reason and wouldn't dispense soap when used as per the instructions. I contacted Delta about the problem and was sent a new dispenser, had the same plumber install it and it worked fine for 4 months, then had the exact problems as the first dispenser. I contacted Delta again and was sent a third dispenser. I had the plumber install it and it worked fine for a few months then had the same problems popped up. I then purchased a manual dispenser. The replacement dispensers were sent to me at no charge but I had to keep paying the plumber each time he came to the house. My total out of pocket cost was nearly $500 for the plumber, plus the cost of the first auto and the manual dispenser. .

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wish I never bought these! Sadly I have two of these and they are equally awful! As others have mentioned, the sensor will sometimes dispenses soap for no reason at all yet when you want soap you touch and touch and touch but no soap! So frustrating! Refilling is even worse which seems like I have to do all the time because it wastes so much soap. I turn it to the off position (red light) yet it still dispenses soap while it is being refilled! If you accidentally overfill or get any soap on the sensor, which is nearly impossible to prevent, it will dispense soap non stop until you unplug it. If you attempt to touch it to put in the purple mode (to change the amount of soap dispensed), it dispenses soap! The sensor on my main sink now seems broken and will not even recognize the off mode at all so we have to unplug (which is so nearly impossible for me to do) to refill or watch half a bottle of soap go down the sink to refill. They are less than two years old. Can they easily be replaced with a manual pump?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Problematic dispenser We just cleaned up a big mess under our sink, because the container that holds the soap broke off and coated everything in the cabinet with a thick layer of soap. The dispenser never really worked consistently. It looked nice, but we're done with it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed Could not get dispenser to work after adding soap... thinned out soap with a bit of water after reading trouble shooting - not made for hand soap apparently. Worked for about a week. Even thinned soap will not come out, though pump sounds like it’s working. So disappointing. I regret spending my hard earned money on it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Tempermental We have been using this for 7 months. Early on we had to deactivate the motion sensor because it went off by itself or when water splashed on it, and we wasted lots of soap in the process. Touch activation has been spotty at best; sometimes it works, sometimes it shuts off (the red light activates without us even moving the dispenser!), sometimes it goes to purple (isn't mentioned in the manual) and then may or may not go back to the blue light which indicates "go". I will touch and touch and touch and sometimes it just doesn't dispense; I end up wasting water while I try to get soap to come out. Often times my husband goes to the bathroom sink because he gets so annoyed with this. I really wanted this to work but have given up and ordered an old-fashioned manual dispenser. Technology isn't up to speed with the concept.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A little regretful... I was so excited about getting this automatic soap dispenser because I'm a complete germophobe and love the idea of not touching it with dirty hands. It was installed about a month ago and initially worked. We haven't even moved into our home yet (as it's under construction) so it's not getting any wear and tear, and it already stopped working. Yes, just nothing happened, even when we tried changing the batteries. I ended up reading lots of reviews (after the fact) and of course, it seems like everyone has problems with it. I called Delta (because it was too late to return it) and they said it was likely a problem with the electrical sensor and said they'd send a new one. My husband switched it out, and so far, it seems okay, but I'm very skeptical after reading all of the negative reviews, coupled with the fact that ours broke down after barely being used in the first place. I suppose we'll have to wait and see. If I have issues again, I will probably eat the loss and go get a manual soap dispenser just to not have the aggravation.
