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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful faucet, great idea, flawed product. I loved this faucet when we first got it. It was exactly what I was looking for in the kitchen, no more germ covered hands on the faucet and it was working great for the first two months. Then it started shutting off randomly. We replaced the batteries as needed and even with brand new batteries we are still having the issues. Turn the faucet on and it shuts right off. In the middle of washing a dish and the hot water shuts off. Washing your hands and the water turns off. VERY frustrating. Getting ready to disconnect the touch feature and just use it as a normal faucet...a very pricey normal faucet!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this faucet! We love this faucet! Didnt take long to get used to the convenience of the "touch" feature. Never have to turn the water on with messy hands, just touch faucet with your wrist or back of you hand. However, after being in our new house for less than a year, the touch feature stopped working out of nowhere;the solinoid had to be replaced. I spoke with Delta customer service and was sent the replacement part within a few days. Very easy fix, but and worried how long this one will last.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Flaky features I really wanted to love this faucet, but it's had a lot of trouble. It looks great and the water pressure and touch-function is fine. It does seem to burn through batteries quickly, but I can live with that. I had it professionally installed, but after a few months the LED stopped working when the water was cold. Then a few weeks later it stopped when it was hot. I talked to Delta and we tried to troubleshoot it, but ultimately Delta replaced the solenoid. That unfortunately meant completely uninstalling the faucet, which I paid a plumber to do...again. A few months later the LED stopped working for cold water again. I decided to ignore it since it still warns when it's hot. But now the faucet takes forever to change temperature. I'll push the lever from cold to hot, and then need to pull it back and press it to hot a few times to get the temperature to change.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from One serious flaw This faucet was part of a total kitchen remodel. Almost immediately the water flow rate fell off to a near trickle. Cleaning the head restored the flow rate but it again quickly slowed to a trickle. Now we have to remove it and clean it twice a week or more. I know it's the head because we can remove it and get great flow from just the hose. Very disappointed Delta. I can get a Moan that won't clog up for a fraction of the price. And YES! The house has a whole house filtration system.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love my new faucet with longer reach I was looking for a faucet a little longer to save my back from leaning forward at my farm house sink. I love that it is touch activated but it is a little sensitive and sometimes it turns off by mistake. The only thing I would change is water pressure is much softer than my old one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worked really nice for 60 Days Took a chance and bought this very expensive faucet about 90 days ago even though I read some of the customer reviews where people were complaining about the faucet turning on and off randomly when it was turned off. Initially I didn't have any issues but this particular problem started after about 60 days and I thought maybe I needed to change the batteries in the cabinet below but that didn't help one bit. I regret getting this because I feel it will turn on in the middle of the night or when I'm not home. So far I've gotten no answers from Delta but would appreciate some help.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn’t work The faucet frequently turns off mid use without touching it and it burns through batteries. When the battery dies the faucet is not able to be used at all, not just the touch feature.

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

Can you recommend a drain that would match the bronze finish?

Asked by: Lisa
Hello Lisa, Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, Delta does not manufacture any kitchen drain assemblies in the Venetian Bronze finish at this time, that would work with the Leland Touch2O Pull-Down Kitchen 9178T-RB-DST faucet. 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

How is the temperature controlled. I am assuming the touch only turns on and off and the temp was the last selected

Asked by: Norma
Hi, Norma! Thank you for your question. The Delta 9178T-RB-DST faucet temperature is controlled with by the handle manually. The touch function turns the water on and off for the faucet. 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
