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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from okay but not great I bought this because of all the rave reviews, but honestly I do not think it lives up to the hype. It works but the regular sprayer comes out as two lines of spray instead of an even circular spray and once it hits your plate or cup the water sprays all over. The "Splash Guard" spray feature doesn't splash but it is not effective, the spray is too "soft".

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from New ORB Faucet Only a few weeks old. Good features, I only wish the water lever was a little more "accurate" in shutting off the flow of water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Real Looker Recently upgraded my kitchen and added granite counter tops (Ubatuba granite is black with various colors mixed in) so I wanted a cool brushed nickel one hole faucet. The handle was supposed to go on the side, but because it was a tight fit my plumber put the handle in the front and it works fine and looks great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made Me a Hero Paid a little extra for 2 of these Delta faucets. Installed 1 in new remodeled kitchen. The second identical faucet will be installed in the utility room when the cabinet is delivered. Easy to install myself. Good instructions. Great action on the handle. Looks great. Better flow than the previous peerless faucet. Magnetic pull down works solid. Counter weight for pull down is simple and smooth. Love the no splash cone , sprayer and high flow options. Best result is wife loves it and me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to maneuver. Just installed this faucet two weeks ago, and I love it! Also, I really like that the sprayer retracts easily.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looks great but doesn't last We bought this faucet three years ago and after about a year, the magnetic doc stopped working. We just push it back into place now. After two years, we got a slow drip from the faucet itself, and after three years, we are now getting drips from who knows where into the cabinet below. This was professionally installed, so installation was not a problem. I think this is just a cheaper model of their more expensive one, but it doesn't pay to go cheap. Will be looking into the lifetime warranty. Hoping they will honor it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy I was happily surprised at the sturdiness of this faucet. It is more than what picture shows. It is larger than what it looks like in the picture. The pull down hose clicks securely into place and there is a weight on the hose that helps to pull the hose almost into place without help. I am very pleased and excited about my faucet and am enjoying using it. Great purchase.

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
