Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks Good and Works Well I needed a new faucet and matching beverage faucet. My prior faucet had a built in water filter. My challenge was finding the two faucets that match. They both are perfect and we're very happy with them. Our plumber recommended Delta saying as a plumber he thinks they're a good product and if repairs are needed parts are readily available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bar Faucet or Beverage Filtration Faucet We have been using this faucet in our kitchen for approximately a month now and it's exactly what we wanted. We installed it a little differently (just cold water to both lines) to use as a beverage filtration faucet to match the Delta touchless kitchen faucet in arctic stainless. Swivel spout works well, design and function exactly as pictured/described and complements other Delta arctic stainless pieces perfectly. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Is this faucet part of the Trinsic line? What are the differences between the 1959LF and 9959-AR-DST; is it just the pull-down sprayer and magnetic docking? Is this 1959LF also smaller? What does the LF designation mean? Thanks Delta Faucets!!!

Asked by: Emily0
Hi, Emily0! Thank you for your question. The 1959-LF is not part of our Trinisic Collection but does match the line. The difference between the 1959LF and 9959-AR-DST is that the 9959-AR-DST is that the 9959-AR-DST does have a pull down sprayer assembly with MagnaTite docking. The 'LF in 1956LF indicates Lead Free. The 9959-AR-DST is also lead free, as well. Best Regards, Rosanna

Can this bar faucet be used as a countertop dispenser for a reverse osmosis filtration system that is set up under my sink?

Do you make an aerator adapter for a hose connection for this model? Our hot tub is outside right around the corner from this faucet.

Asked by: Dale
Thank you for your question, Dale! The RP51505 adapter works with faucets that have a female metric 21.5 X 1-6 G threaded spout. The RP51505 adapter should work with this faucet to convert it to male 55/64”-27 threads, however we do not recommend to connect anything to pull-out or pull-down kitchen faucets, as potential pressure fluctuations during operation may result in the hose rupturing. Furthermore this model only has a flow rate of 1.50 gpm @ 60 psi and is not suitable for filling a hot tub. https://www.deltafaucet.com/parts-product-detail?modelNumber=RP51505 Best regards, Edward

Tanya, Kitchen pull-down model 9159-CZ-DST operates as-- handle straight up is cold & handle 90 degrees towards you is hot. Bar model 1959LF-CZ operates as-- handle 45 degrees towards you is cold & handle 45 degrees towards backsplash is hot. Opposites?!

Asked by: RenoLife
Hello RenoLife, Thank you for your question. The Bar Prep 1959LF-CZ faucet is smaller in size than the Trinsic kitchen model and the handle rotation is designed a bit different. The handle rotation limit cannot be adjusted. However, The handle on both models operate by tilting away from the faucet to turn on. The vertical (back) position gives cold water and rotating the handle forward provides hot. Best regards, Tanya

Can I adjust the handle to move 90 degrees from the top forward, to avoid being close to the backsplash?

My older kitchen faucet of the same model stops at the top for cold and pulls 90 degrees toward me to hot... This bar faucet goes 45 degrees back, and 45 degrees forward.
