Rated 1 out of 5 by from No good! We constantly have ours replaced. They just stop working. Even the rep for our area has visited our home and doesn’t know what could be causing this. Seems like there’s similar reviews out there.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Delta Soap Dispenser I give one star on aesthetics! I purchased (5) for my new rebuild home affected by Super Storm Sandy. I have had a problem with all (5). They turn on for no reason. They do not turn on when I want them to. I have tried everything. Nothing works to get them to work. Poor quality for such an expensive item. Delta......You did not get it right on these on/off touch activated soap dispenser.

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?

Thank you for your question, Oneeyed6! Unfortunately our electronic soap dispensers do not have a connection for a power supply. Best regards, Edward

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
