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.

We have Frigidaire's Gallery series stainless steel appliances in our kitchen (Like this: https://www.frigidaire.com/Kitchen-Appliances/Refrigerators/French-Door-Refrigerator/FGHB2868TF/). Will the Arctic Stainless or Spotshield Stainless match better?

Asked by: agolin
Hi, agolin! Thank you for your question. Arctic Stainless is a brushed finish like Stainless Steel. Over the years, the color of stainless steel used on appliances and sinks has migrated from warmer tones, with more red in the color spectrum, to lighter tones where blue is more predominant. Arctic Stainless features cooler metallic tones, following a trend seen throughout the kitchen. Stainless Steel is has warmer tones, similar to brushed nickel. Best Regards, Rosanna

When searching this model on the online sites they do not indicate the sprayshield technology - when was it introduced on this model and how do ensure I get one with this feature if I place an order with them?  Thanks 

Asked by: Cloogs
Hello, Cloogs. Thank you for your question! The ShieldSpray version began shipping in December of 2017. Please check with the vendor to ensure that they are offering the version with ShieldSpray. The product description should indicate if the faucet will have this feature. Best regards, Jon

We will have Frigidaire's Gallery series stainless steel appliances in our kitchen. Will Delta's Arctic Stainless or Spotshield Stainless finish match better?

Asked by: agolin
Hi Agolin, Thank you for your question. There is a slight difference between the Delta Faucet SpotShield Stainless Steel finish and the Arctic Stainless finish. The SpotShield Stainless Steel has a spot-resistant neutral, low-gloss finish. The Arctic Stainless has a blue tint to it and more closely matches stainless steel appliances out in the market today. It is only used in the kitchen. Best regards, Tanya

Please give me advantages and disadvantages of the "Touch-Clean" spray holes?

Am I guessing that you can flex a rubber disk with holes in it to knock off water deposits? And is this disk less likely to last as long as a metal aperture plate? And is this disk replaceable by homeowner, or do I have to buy a whole new faucet?
Asked by: RiverCityKen
Dear RiverCityKen, Thank you for your inquiry! The wand assembly of the Delta Leland Pull-Down Kitchen 9178-SP-DST faucet has the Touch-Clean feature. This simply means you can rub your fingers over the nubs of the spray nozzle for cleaning. The design of the product makes removing deposits easier. Best regards, Tanya
