Rated 5 out of 5 by from Interesting features Aside from it being a basic well built noting fancy faucet, it comes with a feature that I thought was just a gimmick. Shield Spray technology is now something I can’t ,onger live without in a kitchen faucet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully designed, love it! My husband and I made the mistake of buying a cheap version of this faucet and regret doing so. There is no substitute for quality and that is exactly what this faucet is. It's beautifully designed and works very well. It was incredibly easy to install, the choice of 3 choices of spray are nice and the end fits your hand perfectly. Highly recommend this faucet.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Some good, some mediocre, some bad features. The good: Magnetic pull down retention works great and I expect it to last much longer than the "snap in" type retainers that I have seen fail frequently in other faucets. The mediocre: First, admittedly this is subjective, but most lever faucets you lift the lever to turn on and push down to turn off. This operates opposite and takes some getting used to. Second, as another reviewer mentioned the main nozzle is a bit narrow, this causes more splattering than a wider pattern. The bad: First, plastic lines on a $200 faucet is unacceptable, shame on you Delta. Second, on a stainless steel sink the nut pushes the plastic lines against the edge of the sink as it is tightened, cutting into the plastic supply line. Third, because of the close fit of the nut and supply lines the included wrench will not fit on the nut, you need to use a basin wrench. These problems could have been avoided if Delta used the extended nut (second picture) they include on some of their other faucets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The spray shield is an excellent feature! The faucet is beautiful and offers great features. It overhangs the middle of the sink and spins 360 degrees. The spray is powerful and offers a shielding feature that works great, the magnetic retracting spray head seats without drooping and remains snug until needed. This is a great buy that is functional and beautiful!

Is the main faucet body of the 19978Z-SS-DST metal or plastic?

Asked by: Larry
Thank you for your question, Larry! A Delta faucet body, spout, and handles are typically metal. Our products often use a proprietary mixture of both metal and plastic components to ensure a long lasting, quality product. High grade plastic is used in some areas to avoid corrosion.

which is the hot water pipe. There is a label on one of the pipes. But it does indicate if this is for hot or the cold line.

Asked by: Bill
Thank you for your question, Bill! The model number tag is usually placed on the hot water line which is on the left, however a DST Pex line will have a color appropriate connection fitting on the end, red for the hot line and blue for cold. Best regards, Edward

I was at Home Depot to look at the Leland19978Z-RB-DST in Venetian Bronze but they only had a different model showing the bronze color. Does the bronze color look the same regardless of the model name or does the color vary between models?

Asked by: mary637
Hi, Mary637! Thank you for your question. Our finishes on our Delta faucets may vary in color but only slightly. There should not be a big significance and should match when placed side by side. Best Regards, Rosanna

I found this faucet at Home Depot. #19978Z-RB-DST The color says Leland Bronze. The one shown above says Venetian Bronze. Is there a difference. Also the cost is different $221 and about $425 at a high end store. Quality difference??

Asked by: Debbie
Hi, Debbie! Thank you for your question. Leland is the name of the Delta 19978Z-RB-DST. The faucet finish is Venetian Bronze. This may have been labeled incorrectly. We do apologize for the confusion. The list price for the faucet maybe different from place to place as we let the stores that sell our Delta products set their pricing. All Delta faucets feature the same quality parts, materials, and workmanship, no matter what kind of dealer sells them. Best Regards, Rosanna
