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 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 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?

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

How does faucet toggle between aerator and spray?

Asked by: Tom
Hi Tom, Thank you for your question. The model 9159T-DST has a toggle switch on the backside of the pull out wand that allows you to switch between stream and spray. Thanks, Dave

Install with lever handle in the front

Can I install the faucet with the level handle in the front instead of to the right? If yes, would it change the location of the blue light for the touch2o motion?
Asked by: Excel2more
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # 9159T-DST can be turned so the handle is in the front. However, the blue light will also move. Also, the hot and cold will be side to side to operate.

I am having an issue I’d like some help with please. Sometimes when I touch the faucet to stop the flow of water we get a steady drip (sometimes heavier than others). When we use the handle to stop the water, no drip. What mechanism needs attention?

Asked by: Vanne
Hi, Vanne! 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 usually 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 correct the leak, 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

Please compare the 9159T-DST model to the 9959T- DST (bar/prep)

Asked by: ConsueloTheCook
Hello there ConsueloTheCook, Thank you for your question. The Delta Trinsic 9159T-DST Kitchen and 9959T-DST Bar/Prep faucet have the same design and touch feature. The only difference is that the Bar/Prep faucet is smaller in size than the Kitchen faucet model. https://media.deltafaucet.com/SpecSheet/DSP-K-9159T-DST%20Rev%20E.pdf Best regards, Tanya
