Touch it on. Touch it off. Whether you have two full hands or 10 messy fingers, Delta® Touch2O® Technology helps keep your faucet clean, even when your hands aren’t. A simple touch anywhere on the spout or handle with your wrist or forearm activates the flow of water at the temperature where your handle is set. The Delta TempSense™ LED light changes color to alert you to the water’s temperature and eliminate any possible surprises or discomfort. Delta® MagnaTite® Docking uses a powerful integrated magnet to pull your faucet spray wand precisely into place and hold it there so it stays docked when not in use. Delta® ShieldSpray® Technology cleans with laser-like precision while containing mess and splatter. A concentrated jet powers away stubborn messes while an innovative shield of water contains splatter and clears off the mess, so you can spend less time soaking, scrubbing and shirt swapping. Delta® faucets with DIAMOND™ Seal Technology perform like new for life with a patented design which reduces leak points, is less hassle to install and lasts twice as long as the industry standard*. Kitchen faucets with Touch-Clean® Spray Holes allow you to easily wipe away calcium and lime build-up with the touch of a finger. You can install with confidence, knowing that Delta faucets are backed by our Lifetime Limited Warranty. Electronic parts are backed by our 5-year electronic parts warranty. *Industry standard is based on ASME A112.18.1 of 500,000 cycles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convenient! Beautiful! I love this faucet! Touch anywhere on the neck or the lever and the water goes on and off. The sprayer head does not turn it on or off, which is wonderful. I got the spotless version and it is! I have been using it for a couple of weeks and I have not had to "clean" it or wipe it down for prints or water stains and we have hard water. I would highly recommend this faucet. We bought the cord separately to plug it in to the outlet instead of thinking about replacing batteries. We had the electrician add more outlets under the sink to be able to use it this way.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from LED issue Our 9178T-DST was installed in November 2015 by a plumber as part of a kitchen remodel. We continue to have issues with the LED light feature. The same plumber replaced a part under warranty within the first year and said he was told that part (the ring with the indicator light, I believe) is not to get wet?? LED feature worked for a short bit and has been out since. New batteries have not solved it. Wire is not loose so I believe connection is good. The LED was a factor in buying this faucet but has been disappointing. Please advise.

Most single handle kitchen faucets have the handle on the right.  Are there any Delta kitchen faucets that come with a handle on the left

Asked by: kmel
Hello Kmel, Thank you for your question. We recommend installing the side mounted handled faucets 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

My faucet has a low water flow. How do I increase the pressure?

Asked by: Ken
Hi, Ken! Thank you for your question. The faucet gives a 1.8 gpm. If you are getting less than a 1.8 gpm flow rate, we recommend to flush the line to make sure no debris is clogging the sprayer. You can also soak the sprayer in a solution of 50% white vinegar and 50% water mixture for an hour to clean. If you need any assistance with this, please call our Delta customer Service line at (800)345-3358. We are available Monday-Friday, 7am-7pm CST and Saturday, 8am-5pm, CST. Best Regards, Rosanna

Will the faucet still work if the owner goes out?? We have ours hard-wired and don’t use the battery pack. 

Asked by: Spud
Hello Jill, Thank you for your question. The Delta Leland Touch2O Kitchen 9178T-SP-DST faucet is designed to only activate when touched. We recommend to turn the handle to the off position if leaving on vacation or for an extended period of time, but you can leave it on/open for day-to-day use. Best regards, Tanya

The touch on works with battery but it won't work with A.C. power supply. Why?

Asked by: Spectrum
Hello Spectrum, Thank you for your question. We actually recommend you leave the batteries in the battery box while using the AC power adapter. It is recommended to keep it plug up due to the fact, if there is not enough power it will not work. Best regards, Tanya

I have 15 1/4" from my counter to a a shelf above my sink. Is there a pipe attached to the faucet making it impossible to fit the faucet in the counter opening?

Asked by: Cove
Hi, Cove! Thank you for your question. The 9178T-SP-DST faucet does have a spout shank and PEX lines that do have to be installed above the sink so the lines and spout shank can fit through the hole of the sink. Here are the manual instructions for this unit: https://media.deltafaucet.com/MandI/92834%20Rev%20E.pdf Best Regards, Rosanna

third question is related to LED light. It has never changed temps. It is always red?? Thanks for your help

Asked by: Joe P
Hi, Joe P! Thank you for your question, and I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing an issue with your Delta faucet. We recommend to reset the LED light wire and battery pack. To do this, disconnect the LED light wire from the solenoid. Disconnect the battery pack. Wait a full minute. While you are waiting a full minute, you can check batteries and see if they are in good condition, even try new batteries. Make sure they're all in the correct direction and tightly secured in the battery pack. After a full minute, reconnect the LED light wire into the solenoid and then reconnect the battery pack. Wait another full minute. After the full minute, you can then check your faucet and see if the blue light works better. If this does not, please contact our Delta Customer Service line at (800)345-3358. We are available Monday-Friday, 7am-7pm, CST and Saturday, 8am-5pm, CST. You may also email at customerservice@deltafaucet.com. Best Regards, Rosanna
