Touch it on. Touch it off. Whether you have two full hands or 10 messy fingers, Delta® Touch2O® Technology helps keep your faucet clean, even when your hands aren’t. A simple touch anywhere on the spout or handle with your wrist or forearm activates the flow of water at the temperature where your handle is set. The Delta TempSense™ LED light changes color to alert you to the water’s temperature and eliminate any possible surprises or discomfort. Delta® MagnaTite® Docking uses a powerful integrated magnet to pull your faucet spray wand precisely into place and hold it there so it stays docked when not in use. Delta® faucets with DIAMOND™ Seal Technology perform like new for life with a patented design which reduces leak points, is less hassle to install and lasts twice as long as the industry standard*. Kitchen faucets with Touch-Clean® Spray Holes allow you to easily wipe away calcium and lime build-up with the touch of a finger. You can install with confidence, knowing that Delta faucets are backed by our Lifetime Limited Warranty. Electronic parts are backed by our 5-year electronic parts warranty. *Industry standard is based on ASME A112.18.1 of 500,000 cycles.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great faucet when it works We purchased the faucet in December, 2016, with only the battery pack and had it professionally installed. The wires from the battery pack are poorly insulated and had to be re-routed to ensure the faucet worked as intended. Because we use our faucet frequently and have to replace batteries every 3-6 months, we purchased the plug-in adapter and installed it according to the instructions. However, the battery pack is still evidently needs to be charged because the faucet fails to work when the battery pack is low -- as indicated by the flashing LED at the faucet base -- even when the a/c adapter is in use. What's the point of the a/c adapter?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality I worked as a specifier for many years and Delta was always "specification grade" and remains so with this innovative "Touch 20" kitchen faucet. No, unintended actuation's from motion. Magnetic docked sprayer is nice and spray is non-splash.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I truly want to love it This kitchen has been all my husband wanted when we remodel our kitchen summer 2017. (He does all the dishes). We were all very Happy about it until now. Just 1.5 years, this faucet stop working. Batteries were replaced, pipes were all check (no clogged) the water just stop coming out all the sudden. We had try to troubleshoot with all possible YouTube video but non of them worked. We can’t even turn this hi-tech faucet work as the regular faucet ... Handyman suggested us to replace the faucet. As apparently it’s the faucet issue. But it’s a $500+ faucet only last 1.5 years.

Is it possible to take the restrictor out to get more water pressure?

I currently have a Kohler kitchen faucet with the same specifications, but our water pressure is horrible. Had it checked for debris, etc. and that was not the problem.
Asked by: Tina
Hi Tina, Thank you for your question! This unit is designed to run at 1.8 gallons per minute. It is not possible to increase the flow rate without damaging the product. Thanks, Jon

Is there any way to reverse the handle on the Delta 9113T-AR-DST?  

Asked by: notafoodie
Hi, notafoodie! Thank you for your question. We recommend installing this faucet with the handle on the right. You may install it with the handle on the front or left side, but the temperature adjustment will be opposite of the standard operation for single handle faucets. You could compensate for this by swapping the hot and cold supply lines under the sink. However, the red/blue button on the handle will no longer indicate the correct temperature.

Can the faucet be installed with water “on/off” handle in front rather than the side?

Asked by: Beth
Thank you for your question, Beth. We recommend installing the faucet with the handle on the right. The handle operates by tilting away from the faucet to turn on and rotates forward to increase the temperature. Unfortunately, there is no way to reverse the movement, so if the handle is installed on the left, it will rotate backwards. Best regards, Jon

What is the minimum distance from the back of undermount sink that is needed to install this faucet?

I have an undermount sink and while I have room to the backsplash, I want to install a window stool in my window right behind my sink. I want to make sure my window stool does not interfere with the faucet, so I would like to install the faucet as close to the sink as I can.

Let's assume my batteries run out of juice, and at the moment I have no replacement batteries and I need water immediately . Is there a way to switch it into manual mode. My faucet will not react to any lever movements with loss of battery power.

Asked by: Smitty
Hi, Smitty. Thank you for your question. The Delta 9113T-DST can be changed o manual mode so that the faucet is still usable without batteries. To change the faucet to manual mode, first turn the water off at the shut off valve. Take a bucket with a towel under your sink. Remove the two blue clips on the top and bottom connections at the solenoid assembly. This will remove the solenoid entirely. Disconnect the wiring from the solenoid and let the wiring hang freely. Connect the two hoses that were installed in the solenoid together and secure this connection with one of the blue clips. Pull connection to make sure this is secure. Turn the water on at the shut off valve and test the water. If you should need further assistance, please contact our Delta Customer Service line at (800)345-3358. We are available Monday-Friday, 7am-7pm, CST and Saturday, 8am-5pm, CST. You may also email at customerservice@deltafaucet.com. Best Regards, Rosanna

When faucet handle is in on position and I use the touch feature to turn it off it drips from the sprayer assembly. When handle is in off position it does not. 

Asked by: slaursen4
Hi, Slaursen4! Thank you for your question, and I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing a leak from your Delta faucet. Leaking from the faucet in the touch off mode comes from debris inside the solenoid. You may flush the solenoid by following these next steps. 1. Turn the water supply by putting your handle in the manual off position. 2. Disconnect the sprayer hose by removing the blue retaining clip. 3. Place a bucket under the male adapter coming out from the solenoid. 4. Run water into the bucket for 2-3 minutes. Debris located inside the solenoid should be flushed out after completing these steps. If this does not fix the issue, please contact our Delta Customer Service line at (800)345-3358. We are available Monday-Friday, 7am-7pm, CST and Saturday, 8am-5pm, CST. You may also email at customerservice@deltafaucet.com. Best Regards, Rosanna

Purchased the touch feature which I enjoy but have changed the six AA batteries 4x in one year. Thinking of purchasing the AC adapter but not if it means keeping up with the batteries every 3 mos. must I do this?  If so can I just disable this feature?

Asked by: WorkingForMySink
Tanya, so, are you saying this faucet can only be operated in one mode at a time? Either touch or manual? And not both at the same time? Which means, if I'm in the middle of cooking and the battery dies, I need to stop everything and replace the battery, or worst yet, change the installation of the faucet? Many faucets on the market offers the ability to run both modes at the same time. If you touch, it will come on at a preset temp. If you use the handle, it will also run at the setting of the handle bar.
