Rated 1 out of 5 by from dripping faucet I have had my faucet for one week now and the faucet drips unless you find the sweet spot and adjust it there. It's a process to turn it off and to remember to wait and set it where needed so it doesn't drip. The other issue I'm having with this faucet is when you pull the sprayer out, the inside of that part is dripping and spurting out water as if it's not tight enough, but that's how it came. Thinking about returning it, but what a hassle to take it apart and install another one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality construction The Delta 9178-SP-DST has been a jfine addition to our kitchen. The control lever and spout swivel smoothly. The steady stream,and spray work nicely as well as the shield spray which creates a strong spray to remove stuck on foods without making a mess.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed in the quality We bought this a little over a month ago. Had it installed by a plumber. Like the style and features. But it is very sensitive when turning it off. If you are not careful to move it to an exact spot, it drips. Have never had this problem with a faucet before. Should be able to just push it up and it turns off. But istead you have to push it up and then a little forward to get it off. Would never put this faucet in a house with children. Afraid it would be dripping a lot. For the price $$$$, I expected better. Very disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as previous Delta faucet Faucet works fine but I don't like the handle back by the base. Previous faucet handle projected towards me and it was an easy reach. Reaching back to the base hurts my back. I also wash my small dog in the sink and I have to fight and repeatedly pull the nozzle all during the shampoo session. There is not enough weight in the nozzle. I try to turn sideways to turn it on but don't have the habit at this time. Very disappointed, I know now not to get a faucet with handle straight up back by the base. Expensive learning purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Issue Resolved We were initially very happy with this faucet, however, once installed the faucet dripped constantly. We contacted Delta directly and a replacement valve cartridge was promptly shipped to us. The new valve cartridge solved the issue. The prompt service from Delta was much appreciated. If we had received a faucet without a faulty valve cartridge we would have given it 5 stars as we are very happy with it otherwise.

I plan to replace my kitchen faucet with the Leland 9178-AR-DST. The 9178 spec sheet indicates that the temperature handle movement is from centerline of the body away from the sink. The Q&A seems to contradict this. Please clarify?

Asked by: TomA1
Hello TomA1, Thank you for your question. The handle of the Delta Leland Pull-down Kitchen 9178-AR-DST faucet operates by moving/pushing it away/outwards from the faucet to turn on the cold water. Rotating the handle towards the back to adjust for warm and hot water. Best regards, Tanya

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

I have questions about the Delta Leland kitchen faucet. First, what is the difference between arctic stainless and spot shield stainless? Which one is more likely to match the color of a basic stainless sink?  Does the handle move forward and backward?

Asked by: mello
Hi, Mello! 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. SpotShield Stainless is a spot-resistant, warm, low-gloss finish with warmer tones, similar to brushed nickel. The Delta 9178-SP-DST Faucet handle rotates forward for hot water. 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
