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 see where you have answered the question about the difference between Model 9178 and 9678. What is the difference between those and Model 19978?

Asked by: Kathy61
Hello Kathy 61, Thank you for your question. The Delta Leland Pull-Down 19978-SS-DST faucet is a Home Depot exclusive model and it is similar to the Leland 9178-AR-DST faucet. However, the 9178-AR-DST is designed with the ShieldSpray feature and the 19978-SS-DST model is not. https://media.deltafaucet.com/SpecSheet/DSP-K-19978-SD-DST%20Rev%20C.pdf Best regards, Tanya

Does arctic stainless water spot?

Asked by: Melody
Hi, Melody! Thank you for your question. The 9178-AR-DST Arctic Stainless will show water spots. We recommend to wipe clean with a soft towel. If you should need something stronger, we recommend 50% white vinegar and 50% water solution to clean. Best Regards, Rosanna

Is there a method to keep the Leland faucet centered on the plate provided to cover the extra sink holes? Mine keeps sliding all over the place leaving a gaping grin were it fits onto the cover plate.

Asked by: Mr Streck 88yrs
Hi, Mr Streck 88yrs! Thank you for your question. I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing an issue with your Delta 9178-AR-DST faucet. We recommend to tighten the mounting nut for the faucet, under the sink to secure. You may also use a bit of silicon sealant around the plate at the sink base to secure the plate. Best Regards, Rosanna
