Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delta Leland kitchen Faucet Clean lines with perfect functionality. Blends well with my remodeled, modified shaker, natural wood kitchen. I love that there are no fancy grooves or designs on finish so keeping it clean and sanitized is easy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Water Pressure Inadequate This faucet reduces the water pressure to a small stream barely enough water pressure to wash the dishes. Is there a way to improve the water pressure coming out of the faucet?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Faucet Excellent Quality I really love my new faucet it is so easy to operate and use with all the features. Also, I had a Certified Master Plumber remove my old faucet set and install this one. He had no issues at all installing it. In fact he said in his experience and opinion Delta makes top of the line long lasting products, he never has to go back and work on one he's installed. Delta has my vote.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this faucet! I have had this faucet for at least 7 years now and feel like I made an excellent decision in purchasing it. The magnet is strong to hold the sprayer in place. It moves easily from my left sink to the right one and the little button that switches from regular flow to spray is easy to change.

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

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 the faucet intentionally set to the return to the center automatically?

Asked by: daryl
Thank you for your question, Daryl. The spout is not designed to center automatically. Please check to make sure that the hose is not twisted or catching on anything below the sink and that the faucet is installed on a level surface. Best regards, Jon
