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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks great Slightly more yellow brass than I would choose, but overall good color. The touch system is great after getting used to it. Leaves lots of fingerprints, though. Also bought the soap dispenser that matches - was totally surprised that it is a very expensive piece of plastic. Time will tell if the finish on it holds up.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the touch, quality isn't great I bought one in 2012 and the solenoid has stopped working. (This is the second time) I usually take it apart and clean it our and grease up the components, but I'm tired of having to do so. It has also developed rust on the magnetic joint (it's swollen with rust). The LED ring on the base stopped working after the first year. The placement of the battery pack needs to be strategic as it affects the touch. Also don't get too much water on the base. Mine was properly installed, but the gasket wasn't tight so some water had dripped down to the solenoid causing rust on the metal pieces on it. I applied silicone after that and should have applied it at the time of install. Warranty is done with, and despite it only lasting 6 years, I want to replace it with the same kind because of the touch feature (I don't want a motion sensing faucet). I have an early version of the faucet (an open battery box design) and I sure hope the kinks have gotten worked out on this model.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the Touch On/Off Feature We originally installed a Delta Touch Pilar in our previous house and missed the touch feature after we moved. We have installed 3 of the Delta Trinsic models in our new house and continue to love the touch on/off features. Had a small problem with the faucet dripping on one of the Trnisic faucets which was quickly taken care of my Delta customer service by sending a replacement part. These faucets are easy to install and work great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn’t Be Happier With My Purchase I always wanted a faucet that you can turn on and off with a quick touch for those times when your hands are dirty from raw foods. We purchased the Touch2O Trinsic faucet in polished chrome when we remodeled our kitchen this year. I absolutely love the clean lines of this faucet and the Touch2O feature. It goes well with our contemporary style; and it feels solid and cleans up nicely. The automatic shut off is a great feature. I purchased the ac adapter so I wouldn't have to worry about changing out batteries. There are lots of expensive faucets out there but who needs them! This one works beautifully, looks great, and is a good value.

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
