Rated 1 out of 5 by from Turns off and won't come back on I bought this faucet a month ago. I love it when it works. It's great for a short time but if I'm using it off and on for awhile while fixing dinner, it will stop working and I have to wait for over a half hour for it to work again. Any suggestions. I've watched a you tube video and have brand new "C" batteries, but have not been able to figure out the problem.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from good looking, but too much technology? After 3 months, all of the sudden, no water came out. We called a plumber and $150 later, he put 6 batteries in, and we had water! But no hot water! Called Delta and they are sending a new cartridge, which we will replace ourselves...hopefully we'll be able to do it and hopefully that solves the problem. I don't think we should have to replace batteries after only 3 months!. After questioning this, I have now ordered a power supply to keep plugged in, and battery pack will be the backup. Customer service was very helpful....too bad I had to call them though. Faucet looks beautiful and touch faucet is a good idea, but has too many things that go wrong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A favorite in our kitchen We purchased and had a plumber install this faucet as part of a kitchen remodel. We've been pleasantly surprised at just how convenient having the touch control capability is. It takes only a few days to get used to working with this faucet as opposed to a standard non-touch type but the convenience is immediately apparent and has banished my original thought of this feature my wife wanted being an unnecessary extravagance. To be clear, it's still an extravagance, but worth it; she's very happy and to my surprise, so am I. It's one of those "didn't know what you were missing" additions. We did add the AC adapter after I read a number of reviews where the steady power source seemed to resolve operating glitches for folks. We ourselves had no issues during the first month or so before getting the adapter, but it adds a little peace of mind over just using the battery pack. Only time will tell how it holds up in our busy home kitchen, but so far very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and very efficent! Very happy since we had it installed. Have ordered the 9 volt power so don't need to use batteries.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great style and functionality! I bought this and was a bit skeptical about the touch function and wow was I wrong! This faucet works amazing and the matte black finish doesn't show any water marks. Well done Delta.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Intermittent We have had our faucet for almost 2 years and love the touch feature, but we have had to change batteries many times because not long after changing them, the water turns on and off by itself, or won't shut off or turn on, so assuming it's the batteries, we change them again. Could there be another problem?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Thoroughly disgusted! Bought this faucet about 9 months ago. Started having issues within 2 weeks. Sitting in my office one day I hear a gush of full stream water from the kitchen. The faucet turned itself on! Good thing I was nearby to turn it off. Since then it periodic shuts itself off on a daily basis no matter how long it's been running. Yesterday, for the second time in 2 months it stopped running water altogether! For the price of this facuet it should diagnosis and fix itself!! Instead this is the second time having to call a plumber or Delta support. I've had $100 faucets that were better and more dependable than this!!! Do NOT buy one.

I usually wash with the spray setting toggled on. Does the spray setting stay on when you touch the faucet off and on, or does it revert to stream?

Asked by: Stewart
Hi Stewart, Thank you for your question! The wand will stay in the same setting when the water is turned off and on. Best regards, Jon

Can the handle of be mounted in any position?

In our particular application, the faucet is very close to the backsplash area. I fear that normal right side mount Will not provide sufficient space to turn the lever to cold water. I would like to mount the handle facing forward.
Asked by: Bill
Hi Bill, Thank you for your question. The faucet is only designed for the handle to be installed on the right side. However, the handle does not move backward past the upright position. Best regards, Jon

Does it have an auto shut-off feature?

I cannot seem to locate if there is an auto shut-off, if so how long until the water does shut off?
Asked by: Gwinn Family
Hello Gwinn Family, Thank you for your question! Our Touch2O® Technology incorporates an automatic water flow shut-off after four minutes if the water is left running with no activity. I hope this helps. Best Regards, Rosanna

Can the handle be mounted on the LEFT

I currently have a kitchen faucet with a detached handle mounted in a hole 4" to the right of the faucet. I'm looking to replace this setup with a single handle kitchen faucet that will let me mount the handle on the LEFT side so I can use the existing hole 4" on the right for a filtered water dispenser. Questions: 1) Will this faucet let me mount the handle on the left? 2) Is there anything related to mounting the faucet that will interfere with my re-use of the hole 4" to the right of the faucet?
Asked by: Dr. Horse Jumper
Hi Dr. Horse Jumper, Thank you for your question. The faucet is designed for the handle to be installed on the right. Unfortunately, installing it on the left will cause the handle to rotate backwards, and the LED light will not be visible. Best regards, Jon

What is the height of the handle from the countertop?

We have a breakfast bar behind our sink. The clearance to the backsplash at the countertop is 2.5 inches, which is sufficient for the Trinsic faucet. However, there is a half inch overhang from the breakfast bar. This overhang begins at 5 inches above the countertop. Consequently, the clearance is only 2 inches at that overhang. Will this interfere with the operation of the handle?
Asked by: Plymouth
No this should not interfere with your clearance as I had 2" for my facucet to the back splash
