Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice faucet I had this installed a couple of weeks ago to replace my old kitchen faucet. I loved the style of my old one (Victorian) but it kept having to be repaired. I researched new kitchen faucets and this was one of the top ones. I like the pull down sprayer. It is easy to use and clicks back into place securely. You do have to jiggle the faucet a bit to get the excess water out of the neck after using the sprayer, otherwise the faucet drips. The finish is pretty (arctic stainless) but I need to keep it wiped dry to prevent spotting. If it does have water dry on it, the spotting cleans up easily. The only problem I have is getting used to the handle. There is not much leeway between the hot and cold settings and getting it to come out "warm" is a little tricky. I'm sure it's just a matter of getting used to it. Also, having the handle on the side of the base of the faucet, you are pushing the it to the right to turn it on and pushing it left (to the vertical position) to turn it off. For 30 years I have had a faucet handle that goes up and down - not side to side. I find myself wanting to pull it forward to turn it off. Again, something I just have to adjust to. The big advertised feature of this faucet is the Shield Spray, but I haven't had a reason to use it yet. It works fine, I just don't seem to need it. I'm hoping that this faucet will last me for years to come and not need to have a drip fixed every couple of years.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Aerator water pressure issues. I bought this on Amazon late Sept 2018 based on reviews. It was installed early October. In just six months, I'm facing aerator issues. Water pressure both cold and hot drop significantly at times. On disconnecting the faucet head from the wand hose I get full water pressure. I've used the aerator wrench and removed the aerator several times to wash and replace it. There wasn't much particulate matter so I find it odd that water pressure drops so much. The head assembly is not user serviceable though it has 3 spray mechanisms built in.

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 4 out of 5 by from Great color and features Just installed, so far it's great

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.

Does the aerator wrench RP50815 come with Faucet 9178?

We had the faucet professional installed and I cannot find any such wrench, but the aerator needs cleaned. Do I have to purchase this separately? Thank you.
Asked by: CMPAZ81
Hi CMPAZ81, Thank you for your question. The faucet does come with the aerator wrench. Please check under the sink, as the aerator wrench is designed to clip onto the PEX supply lines. Best regards, Jon

Hello Is the faucet hose made out of braided metal and rubber? I have a latex/rubber allergy and wanted to see if this would work or not. Thanks.

Asked by: Julio

Does the faucet spray wand return to the dock when you let it go or do you need to push it back into the dock?

Asked by: Barbara
Thank you for your question, Barbara! The wand should be manually returned to the spout when you are finished as it will not retract automatically. The hose weight and MagnaTite docking will ensure that the wand stays secure and in the right position every time. Best regards, Jon

Venetian Bronze Color

Does the Venetian Bronze faucet coordinate with oil rubbed bronze cabinet hardware?
Asked by: Sophie
Hello Sophie, Thanks for your question! It's always a good idea to take the cabinet hardware and other accessories to a Delta Faucet showroom to see if your chosen hardware will match the faucet and vice versa. The color of the hardware will ultimately depend on the manufacturer, so we couldn't say if it would definitely match. However, Venetian Bronze would probably match an oil rubbed bronze finish, but whether or not it looks good together is ultimately up to you. I hope this helps!

Is the pull-down hose long enough for farm sink?

What is the length of the pull-down hose? Is the pull-down hose long enough to reach the bottom and all corners of a farm sink (Kohler Undermount Farm Sink, 9.625" D, 21.625" W, 32.6875" L)?
Asked by: didibaby
Hi didibaby, Thank you for your question. The hose is 54" in length and will provide approximately 22" of reach from the end of the spout. Best regards, Jon

I am concerned with flow rate on this faucet. I have found conflicting info on the flow rate. Some sites say 1.8 GPM while others say 2.2 GPM. I want

I want a faucet with at least 2.2GPM or higher.
Asked by: Carly
Hi Carly, Thank you for your question. The model 9178-RB-DST comes with an aerator with a flow rate of 1.8 gpm. You can order RP53998 which is a 2.2 gpm aerator to raise the flow rate for this particular model. None of our pull down faucets come with a flow rate of 2.2 gpm. Thanks, Dave

Can you reverse the faucet installation so that the on/off lever is on the left side?

Asked by: Michael
Thank you for your inquiry, Michael! We recommend installing the Delta Linden Pull-Down Kitchen 9178-RB-DST faucet with the handle on the right. You may install it with the handle on the front or left side, but the temperature adjustment will be opposite of the standard operation for single handle faucets. You can compensate for this by swapping the hot and cold supply lines under the sink. However, the red/blue button will no longer indicate the correct temperature. Best regards, Tanya
