Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the spray This faucet is terrific. I love just adjusting the spray, rather than pulling out the old one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the design I've had this faucet for a couple of weeks now and just love it! The shield spray feature is great and the pull down sprayer creates much less splatter than my old sprayer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Features The faucet seems to be built pretty well, its quiet in operation, and has the options for different sprays. I like the way the base secures to the sink. It is rock solid when tightened. As noted by other reviewers, though, the water flow follows somewhat of a wide arc. Other than that, it is fine and there wouldn't be any hesitation in recommending it.

I see where you have answered the question about the difference between Model 9178 and 9678. What is the difference between those and Model 19978?

Asked by: Kathy61
Hello Kathy 61, Thank you for your question. The Delta Leland Pull-Down 19978-SS-DST faucet is a Home Depot exclusive model and it is similar to the Leland 9178-AR-DST faucet. However, the 9178-AR-DST is designed with the ShieldSpray feature and the 19978-SS-DST model is not. https://media.deltafaucet.com/SpecSheet/DSP-K-19978-SD-DST%20Rev%20C.pdf Best regards, Tanya

Does arctic stainless water spot?

Asked by: Melody
Hi, Melody! Thank you for your question. The 9178-AR-DST Arctic Stainless will show water spots. We recommend to wipe clean with a soft towel. If you should need something stronger, we recommend 50% white vinegar and 50% water solution to clean. Best Regards, Rosanna

Is there a method to keep the Leland faucet centered on the plate provided to cover the extra sink holes? Mine keeps sliding all over the place leaving a gaping grin were it fits onto the cover plate.

Asked by: Mr Streck 88yrs
Hi, Mr Streck 88yrs! Thank you for your question. I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing an issue with your Delta 9178-AR-DST faucet. We recommend to tighten the mounting nut for the faucet, under the sink to secure. You may also use a bit of silicon sealant around the plate at the sink base to secure the plate. Best Regards, Rosanna
