Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice faucet We are very happy with this faucet. We had a handyperson do the installation and it was fairly easy (he said....) One caveat about this faucet. The ShieldSpray is more of a gimmick than anything that you must have. It doesn't do very much. Plus the faucet water outlet needs space on it to allow for the ShieldSpray to come out, so the general sprayer pattern is two sided -- around the edges of the faucet outlet -- rather than a circle completely surrounding the area of the outlet used when the faucet is set to stream. Not a big deal, one way or the other, but that is not entirely clear from the pictures, or anything else. If you want a full spray, don't get a faucet with ShieldSpray. Even if you don't want or need a full spray, ShieldSpray is not too useful. Another thing to note is that the weight on the cord that causes it to retract after the faucet is extended does not pull the faucet back on its own. It only assists in its return. I find this ok but actually expected more of a return pull. The downside though, were there a stronger retraction force, is that it would be harder to pull out for use. On balance, I am happy with the amount of force needed to pull the sprayer out. But if you want one that pulls itself back into place, this is not it. However, the magnet that holds the sprayer in place when you return it is quite excellent and, now having it, I would not want a faucet without a magnet to hold it in place Two things to note about the installation: the instructions do NOT make clear that the riser for the bottom of the faucet is for use only if you are not using the escutcheon. You only need the exra "rise" once - in other words, if you are using the escutcheon to cover two open holes, you do not use the extra piece around the base of the faucet itself. Second, as one of the best reviews on Amazon notes about this faucet, it helps tremendously if you have pull ties to use beneath the sink for having the various sub-sink connections go where you need them to go around or in front of or behind the specific geography of your own sink and disposal. Some of those connections need to hang in a different direction than just straight down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! The faucet looks great with my new granite sink. I couldn't afford a new kitchen island, so instead I got a new sink and this faucet. Makes the kitchen look updated. I like how it works as well. I wanted the magnetic docking, as I figure that over the years it will continue to be effective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delta 9178-DST Easy to use, nice looking, easy to clean. Works really well except for: you must put the faucet exactly in the correct spot to turn off for the water not to drip and the "umbrella" is not as big as it appears on TV.

We are having a problem with the handle not returning to the full off position. It didn't do this when we first installed it. Now we have to carefully wiggle it back and forth to make sure it is fully off. Is there a way to take apart the main valve?

Asked by: Gayle
Hello, Gayle. Thank you for your question, and I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing a leak from your Delta faucet. We recommend to clean the bottom puck on the valve cartridge assembly and retighten the bonnet nut to stop the leak. To do this, turn the water off at your shut off valve. Remove the handle. Unscrew the bonnet nut counterclockwise. Pull the valve cartridge out and clean the bottom puck on the valve cartridge assembly. Reinstall the valve cartridge assembly and retighten the bonnet by turning clockwise, to the right. Install the handle back on and turn the water back on. Test the faucet. If the faucet still leaks, we recommend to replace both the valve cartridge assembly, RP50587, and the bonnet nut, RP51503. Best Regards, Rosanna

Hello - I have a Single Handle Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet with ShieldSpray® Technology Leland® - Model#: 9178-AR-DST. Can this be mounted so the handle is facing the front versus a side mount so that the handle is over the sink? Thanks

Asked by: Jane
Hello Jane, Thank you for your question. We recommend installing the Delta Leland Pull-Down Kitchen 9178-AR-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
