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 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.

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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don’t Waste Your Money on Touch20 Like many others we are experiencing faulty Touch20 problems. I am a 20 year mechanical engineer in the aerospace industry and have no problem with following their installation instructions. Our faucet worked for 9 whole months before it quit, and then one day after the replacement parts were sent. Delta make nice faucets, they just have not perfected this technology yet.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Erratic and tempermental We have the new faucet and it's quite tempermental. Not sure if I'm going to keep it or get something else that turns on when I want water. There shouldn't be a learning curve to operate a faucet!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piece of junk We've had this faucet for a few years and the touch sensor never worked, luckily it's easy to defeat it. Now the cartridge is failing but neither the cartridge part number in my manual or the new PDF from the website can be found on the delta website. I'm done with the fancy garbage contractors recommend, from now on I'll only buy standard stuff I can get at home depot with cheap replacement parts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game-changer in the kitchen- we absolutely LOVE IT I was surprised to see that the reviews that pop up on this page are 4 and 5 years old- they should be deleted! We've had the faucet for two weeks and we are absolutely thrilled. I used to be one of those people who wasted tons of water, and never really thought about why, but it had to to with not wanting to set the temperature and flow over and over again. With this faucet I can set the temp and flow, and turn it on and off by touch as many times as I want. No more wasting water! I LOVE the small light that changes color as the water heats up. I like using hot water when I wash dishes, and now I don't need to stand there and run my hands under the faucet over and over again, I can tell when it's hot by glancing over from the stove or the fridge. And, as strange as it may sound, I actually enjoy doing the dishes more, because of my faucet!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Huge Disappointment I had such high hopes for this faucet. The look the design he price. I bought it to go with my Newport brass water dispenser. Purchased in 11/2015 I had nothing but issues. No pressure no hot water changed the batteries did all trouble shooting. Waste of money! I bought the Newport brass fauctet and had it installed and feel like a changed human! So much pressure and hot water!!! I’m happy now after wasting the money from before. Bummer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE the Touch2o faucets!! I had a Touch2o faucet a few years ago and loved it, so I knew when I moved, I’d be purchasing another one....I love the modern design of the Trinsic faucet and I’ve had it installed for about 2 1/2 weeks now and couldn’t be happier with it!! I knew I was going to buy it regardless of some negative reviews because I’ve had a Touch2o before and never experienced any issues. I did have it professionally installed but just days prior received a response from Delta customers service advising that the solenoid had been redesigned in November of 2017...so if anyone had any doubts, know that Delta addressed the concerns and it works beautifully!! I plan on trying to update my review after a few months to reaffirm that THIS is the faucet to buy!! THANK YOU Delta!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very erratic performance We've had the Touch20 faucet in our kitchen for approximately 1.5 yrs. Since we've had it, our primary problem is a dripping faucet when it is in the off mode. We've already replaced the solenoid once. This past week when we had 30 people for dinner, the faucet just quit working altogether---no hot or cold water would come out. We replaced the batteries and it started working and then stopped again. I replaced the batteries a second time and it still didn't work. We checked all of the batteries to make sure they were good and they were. Needless to say, that many dishes with an unusable faucet was more than frustrating. When the faucet works as it should, it's a great product; but for the most part, it's just a hassle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product overall Have had the Trinsic with touch for almost 6 years, and have had to replace the solenoid once about 2 years ago I think. Not a terribly technical repair, clear out the undersink cabinet, but it can be a tight space so give yourself lots of time, and don't forget to turn off the water before starting. Had the replacement within days, and was able to disable the solenoid so it worked manually. The solenoid appears to be malfunctioning once again, and I will call Delta tomorrow to order a new one. They were superb to work with last time, and I am sure will be again. Even with these glitches, I would highly recommend this product. We own two holiday rentals in Key West Florida, and this exact model is in both units, and both work flawlessly. Our guests are always amazed at their ease of use, and I am sure that we have "sold" many of these units to our guests for Delta after they leave our condos, for their own homes. Such a great "touch" for a holiday rental, don't you think?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful modern style My Trinsic faucet was installed by a fantastic plumber just last night and I am SOO happy to have another Touch2o faucet again! I had one in my last house and could not wait to replace my kitchen sink in my new house so I could also replace the faucet and have another Touch2o faucet. I love the modern design and the Artic Stainless finish is goes so well in my kitchen. It should also be known that two days before I place my order, Delta Customer Service responded to my question regarding the reviews about issues with the solenoid since I never had a single issue with my previous Delta Touch2o faucet. Thank you for confirming that the solenoid has been redesigned and improved! I look forward to many more years of loving another Delta Touch2o faucet as it really is fabulous when your hands are dirty, especially when baking. With the improvements in the solenoid redesign, anyone that had concerns should be able to order with confidence, just as I did. THANK YOU DELTA!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Touch on feature spot on! We purchased one for our kitchen about 1.5 years ago, it malfunctioned a couple of times in the beginning but it performed well afterwards. We decided to get another one for our utility/laundry sink. So far, so good. Touch on feature is definitely my favorite. Would definitely recommend. The look/design is high quality. Sleek and clean.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Turns off too quickly I have had this faucet for about 6 mo installed. I am constantly touching it to turn it back on,as it goes off on a whim. The pressure of touch has to be just so ,otherwise it stays off. It takes me forever to get through washing my dishes and can be very frustrating. I didn't order the automatic touch but was delivered by mistake and decided to give it a go as I had been without kitchen for few years due to Hurricane Sandy! I am not a high tech person and my old kitchen was 40 yrs old so this is challenging. I did love the brushed champagne color though. Another problem for me is that the hot water goes on when faucet is pulled forward. Any other faucet I have used like this the cold is forward. I also think it is very bulky. My kitchen is small and it's out of place. I imagine that its from the extra sensors etc..... I may just take out the batteries as using part of hand on faucet is just as effective.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beautiful until it rusted We purchased the faucet a little over a year ago. It was pricey but we have always felt Delta has good quality products so we didn’t mind spending a little extra knowing it would last a long time. We absolutely loved the faucet, beautiful and the touch feature was very helpful! The problem arose about 9 months in when the sprayer head started to not fit snuggly back into place. There was a gap between the faucet and the sprayer, it wasn’t that big of a deal so I ignored it for awhile. Except now there is a huge gap and it’s continuing to get worse. Upon inspection I noticed that the rind around the end of the faucet is rusting and as the rust grows the gap becomes larger and larger. This will eventually stop the faucet from working all together. I am extremely dissatisfied as we have only had this faucet for a little over a year and I would expect Deltas products to last longer then that. Will have to consider not purchasing from them in the future. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great features but... The Touch20 feature can be frustrating. It works great for weeks at a time then starts taking multiple touches to start/stop water flow. I have run it on batteries and from the AC adapter. At first it seemed like if it got a lot of use over a couple of hours time it would start forgetting that touching it was supposed to turn it of or on. It may take a couple of a dozen touches to get it to react and then in your frustration, tap it too quickly and turn it off and back on again (on then off again) and have to go through the cycle again. I wish I could add a video, it took 11 taps to turn it off and has been like this the whole day. Tomorrow it will probably work fine without moving things around under the sink and checking that all the wiring is not touching something else. The faucet gets 5 stars but the Touch20 Technology for an extra $250 needs serious rework.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Developed a constant drip This faucet was professionally installed 6 months ago in a kitchen renovation. It has worked flawlessly until now. A constant drip whenever the touch feature is used to turn it off. I hope this isn't the norm!

Battery Box Location

Hello, In the install directions, it says that the optimal location for the battery box is on the cabinet floor vs the cabinet wall. Why is this? Thanks!
Asked by: triplee121
Hi triplee121, Thank you for your question. We recommend placing the battery box on the floor of the cabinet as it is used to establish a base-line for the Touch2O feature. The closer to the ground it is the better reading it will get. 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

Can the on/off handle be reversed to the left side during installation 

Asked by: Kevin
Kevin, Thank you for your question. We recommend installing the faucet with the handle on the right. The handle operates by tilting away from the faucet to turn on. The vertical (back) position gives cold water and rotating the handle forward provides hot. Unfortunately, there is no way to reverse the movement, so if the handle is installed on the left, it will rotate backwards. Also, reversing the installation would move the LED light to the back of the faucet. Best regards, Jon

Can you toggle between stream and spray? Or do you have to turn off the faucet to turn off spray mode?

Asked by: PS
Thank you for your question PS. You can toggle between stream and spray without having to turn the faucet off. Touch2O® Technology is a sophisticated technology and understands the difference between a touch (1/3 of a second) or a grab (more then 300 milliseconds) and will not turn off when toggling through stream and spray. Best regards, Edward
