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 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.

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
