Rated 1 out of 5 by from The Soap Waster This thing keeps shooting soap across the countertop for no reason. It will not shut off. Our builder talked us into putting this in and we regret it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Pleased Purchased the Delta 9178T SP DST faucet and the Delta 720445T-SS in September of 2018. Love the Faucet but the Soap Dispenser has never worked right. I have changed the batteries several times even though I knew that was not the problem. The mechanism that holds the batteries is a piece of junk. I have even cleaned the dispenser out several times but nothing works. So trash can here it comes. I hate doing that because it matches my faucet. But the aggravation is not worth the matching. Delta what do I do?

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great Looking - Only works when it wants to! We completely did our house with Delta fixtures. All the fixtures work great except this soap dispenser. My wife has ALS so I got this so she could be as independent as possible. This product is very disappointing. Not sure what to do. I wish someone could fix it so we can keep it in place for her. It only works when it wants to which is not very often.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible quality Installed less than 6 months ago, looked good. Function has been spotty, has finally stopped working all together. Contact on back of base has rusted to the point it does not make contact with top of dispenser.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beautiful design, awful functionality We bought this for our new home back in October. It is stunning. Matches our bronze Delta faucet and is very well made. The quality really is superb; HOWEVER, the functionality is awful. Ours is mounted next to our sink in our kitchen island where we often eat, kids do their homework, etc. It goes off anytime anything goes near it (wasting a ton of soap) and it dispenses a ton of soap at one time (enough for 4 people). We had a professional install it and look at it later. We followed the directions (on more than one attempt) on how to decrease the amount of soap given and how to also make it "touch activated" rather than "motion activated". No success. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Most of the time it just goes off whenever it wants. So, unfortunately, it breaks my heart that we have to get rid of it since it looks so nice, but it really is driving me crazy. We're replacing it with a Delta soap pump (which stinks because it's plastic...), so hopefully that does what we want it to do--dispense soap as we'd like it to without frustration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice finish I really like the champagne bronze finish. Matches perfect with my new touch activated kitchen faucet. I worked really hard to find a kitchen faucet that matched with my antique brass chandelier. I am a nurse practitioner so I am concerned about not transferring chicken juice or raw egg on my faucet handle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality product I ordered this for our new home we are building. Very much impressed with the quality of the dispenser and the color finish. Matches well with the touch activated faucet we also purchased. Product was packed extremely well which protected the finish and functionality of the dispenser. Looking forward to using this for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality!!! This is a quality piece, it simply works! This includes everything you need including the batteries, a funnel, etc. The biggest thing is the name behind the product and one company making all your sink needs!

Can I use 'foaming' soap for this dispenser?  It is thinner and tthought it might be better.

Asked by: der56
Thank you for your question, DonR! Our soap dispensers can use liquid dish soap, liquid hand soap, alcohol based hand-sanitizer, and even typical hand lotions. Foaming soap will pump from the soap dispenser but it will not foam. Best regards, Edward

Thanks to you, we set our dispensers to "touch only." It worked with 1 of ours, but the other makes a sound like it is dispensing soap and a blue light comes on, but no soap comes out. We tried switching the pump heads, but no success. Please help!

Asked by: AnnW
Thank you for your question, AnnW! The Blue Led light means the dispenser is operating normally. If no soap is being dispensed, please check to be sure the bottle is completely refilled and that the soap or lotion being used is not too think. Please also refer to the Quick Start Diagram below for reference to further troubleshooting and feel free to contact us directly if you have any questions or need assistance. https://media.deltafaucet.com/QuickstartDiagram/QS-75978%20Rev%20F.pdf Best regards, Edward
