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.
