I have the Delta Leland touch faucet 9178 TAR DST. Can it still work when the batteries go dead
Thank you for your question! The light will flash red when the batteries are low. You can remove the batteries while the water is running to switch to manual mode. You can also turn the faucet off with the handle, disconnect the solenoid, and connect the hose directly to the faucet to bypass the solenoid.

Is this model the exact same where ever it is purchased?
My plumber installed this model 9178-Chrome-DST and charged me $769 for the faucet set, soap dispenser, and installation. When I told him the set was $200 on Amazon with free Prime shipping and so I thought the additional $569 was a bit high for installation his reply was that the quality of his Delta faucet was much better than what I could buy online, because he is a plumber. Is this true? Isn't a Model 9178 Chrome DST the same wherever it is bought??
Dear Theresa B,
Thank you for your question. We appreciate your interest in Delta faucets. All Delta faucets feature the same quality parts, materials, and workmanship, no matter what kind of dealer sells them. Delta retail dealers usually sell faucets that include the handles in the boxes. Plumbing professionals and Delta Studio Showrooms sell faucets where the faucets and handles are packaged and sold separately ("LHP" models), giving the customer some additional styling choices. However, the quality of all Delta faucets is the same.

Stainless steel vs arctic finish
We have 2 year old whirlpool appliances and will be installing a countertop with Solera SR305 sink under counter mount stainless steel sink. Your opinion please on the arctic or stainless steel finish for delta leader faucet 19978 or 9178 This is a one shot deal so I need to get it right. Thanks
Hi Diane, Thank you for your question. There is a slight difference between the Delta Faucet Stainless Steel finish and the Delta Faucet Artic Stainless finish. Stainless Steel has a gold tone to it and is mostly used in the bath. Artic 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.

I read most of the answers to the questions. If the handle assembly is metal, what material is inside ? Is this product considered a middle quality
or is this still low - end quality?
How much price range do I set to look for a middle quality for single handle pull down/pull out kitchen faucet?
How often do I change the washer?
I didn't buy this yet.
I am checking your homepage to see which one I would like to buy.
Hello Haru Chan,
Thank you for your questions. The internal cartridge for this faucet is manufactured with plastic, but it is a high quality of plastic. The rest of the material this Delta faucet is made with is also of high quality material.
