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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rusting at the magnetic connection We purchased this very expensive Trinsic (matte black) faucet for our kitchen remodel about 1.5 years ago. The touch feature has been awesome, but over the past few months, the gap between the faucet body and the faucet head was growing. Today a rusted piece from the faucet body started hanging down. I did not expect to have this kind of an issue with a faucet that was this expensive! We purchased this faucet through our local Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Showroom based on their recommendation. Help!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Faucet touch system doesnt work I bought a new house which is 2 years old. It came with this faucet installed and the touch on/off system does not work. We've changed batteries several times which seems to help for a very short period of time. After a few days it goes back to not working. You can touch it sometimes 30 times before anything happens. Sometimes we just cant get it to go on at all and we resort to using the sink in the bathroom. I'd like to just defeat the touch control and use it as a standard faucet but that doesn't seem possible. I've removed the battery pack but still no water.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Touch technology doesn't work I just installed this brand new faucet and I can't get it to work. I was really hoping I would have a good experience with it because it looks so nice and sleek and innovative, but it's a dud. I'm hoping I can get a replacement that works or some kind of tech support because I really need a facet that works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of its class This is second Delta Touch faucet. Installation is fairly basic, just follow the guidelines. Touchless feature, auto off, and temperature light are great features. I purchased the plug in adapter, thus bypassing the need for the battery pack (BP). BP is there in case of power outage. Styling is great, nice contemporary design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely love this faucet This faucet is life changing. The only complaint I have is that every faucet in my house doesn't have this feature. It looks beautiful and is so perfect for someone who is very busy in the ktichen. I love that it turns off on it's own when left on too long too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks great, one big issue Had this installed in our new home, love the look and the function. Unfortunately after three months of use, the battery pack lid is falling off so we intermittently don’t have power. I didn’t know a hardwire was an option, so I think we are stuck with a duck taped battery pack. Would recommend this if you hardwire it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from When it worked it was great This sink has been causing me great trouble and makes easy tasks such as washing dishes so incredibly cumbersome. We get it to work sometimes and then it stops working sporadically. When it does start working it makes crazy noises and only lets out a very little amount of water, it almost seems like a motor is about to blast off. I called a plumber over but they really didn't understand what to do. I know ignoring the porblem is definitely not sustainable and there are only so many times I can change the battery. If someone could help me troubleshoot the issues I am facing I would really apprecitate it.

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

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
