Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST FEATURE - PULL DOWN IS MUCH EASIER - LIGHTER I bought this about 10 days ago, I am very happy with its performance and best feature

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.

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

Hi. A new water meter was just installed at my home and I've lost prssure in my kitchen faucet. The City said I need to remove the aerator and rinse it, but I can't see how to remove that. The pressure is low on all three of the settings. Can you help me?

Asked by: Maritxu
Hi, Maritxu! Thank you for your question. The Delta 9178-SP-DST faucet sprayer aerator assembly can be removed with an aerator wrench. The aerator wrench kit is part number RP50815. Here is a link to the part: https://www.deltafaucet.com/parts-product-detail?modelNumber=RP50815 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

what is the purpose of the red plastic slide switch at the top of the valve assembly?

Asked by: jerry
Hi, Jerry! Thank you for your question. The switch on the valve assembly is a handle limit stop. Position 1, to the left, allows full handle motion (the full range between “all cold” to “all hot”). The faucet is set in position 1 in the factory. Position 2, to the right, allows half of the normal handle motion (“all cold” to “mixed hot/cold”). The handle limit stop can be adjusted by the homeowner once the faucet is installed. Setting the handle limit stop in position 2 may help to prevent scalding because it limits the amount of hot water in the mix; however, this handle limit stop will not always prevent scalding because it does not compensate for incoming pressure or sudden water temperature changes. To change positions of the handle limit stop: remove the handle; move the valve stem to the all cold position so the water is on; change the position of the handle limit stop; turn off the water; reinstall the handle. Best Regards, Rosanna

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
