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 1 out of 5 by from Not What Was Expected We bought this faucet a month ago and unfortunately the shield spray feature that we paid about $100.00 extra for is simply not what is advertised or promoted. First, the water pressure with the entire faucet is much weaker than our previous faucet which makes it hard to wash food away. Because of that, the shield spray feature doesn't actually provide additional assistance to actually wash food away. Additionally, the 'shield' on the shield spray doesn't form a large circle as advertised. It may be a defect in our faucet but it still causes spraying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Products and fantastic customer servic I bought a faucet about 6 or 7 weeks ago and got busy and couldn't get it put in right away so I didn't know how good or bad the product was going to be at time of installation. This is a great product and works beyond my expectations. I did have a issue with a solenoid and Delta sent a replacement out without question. Unbelievable customer service, I identify the problem and have the replacement parts here within days.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this faucet! This is the best thing I ever did for myself in the kitchen. It's so handy to simply touch the faucet rather than getting the lever messy when working around the sink. Works great!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nothing But Trouble with this Faucet! I bought this pretty faucet for a client. The handle is sticky. With small children it is a disaster because the temp is so hard to control. Seems that the water is always either too cold or scalding hot. I replaced the faucet and the same problem remained. Even though Delta replaced for free, the plumber cost several hundred dollars. Twice. Skip this faucet!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sporadic Functionality We had this faucet installed in April as part of a full kitchen renovation. For the first 6 weeks or so, it worked phenomenally. I loved the ease of leaving the physical faucet lever to the "on" position and using the tap to turn it on and off. I love the LED indicator light that shows water temperature. I also like the auto-off feature for when the water is running for a long period to prevent accidental overuse. However, since June, we have been having problems with the faucet turning on randomly in the middle of the night, it shutting off sporadically during use. When using the faucet, taps will not always turn it on or off. Sometimes you cannot get the faucet to turn on at all, using the physical lever or the tapping feature. I spoke with customer service who made suggestions about moving the wires and solenoid to make sure there were no crossed wires or other causes to these behaviors but the problem has not been resolved. Very disappointed from what I know it can be and was when we first had this product installed- it WAS awesome but now is a big headache.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the touch feature! We had been looking at faucets for awhile. Couldn't find anything special. Then I heard about the lifetime warranty with Delta. I ordered it online and we couldn't be happier! I also love the temperature changing LED light. It's awesome and we are thrilled with it. Absolutely love it!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from on/off Touch Activation Does NOT work, I Installed it ( Correctly after the fact) they sent a new Faucet and I had a Plumber install the replacement one, because I thought I may have installed the original one Incorrectly, Plumber installed the replacement on, just Like Installed the original one, and Still Doesn't work, so I would not recommend this Faucet

Rated 1 out of 5 by from disappointed I have had this faucet for a year and it stopped working properly 5 months ago. The water turns on and off by itself which is very frustrating when you are trying to wash dishes or when you can hear it from the other side of the house. I was really excited about this purchase as all the fixtures in our house are Delta and we have had no issues but this is a big disappointment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great faucet and features I order this faucet a few weeks ago, and received it super fast and had installed. It looks beautiful in my kitchen sink. I like the features such as stop at touch, and the new water spout feature that reduces splashing of water. I love the color and the style, and it is very well made. Totally recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it This is the 4th faucet I have installed, and with the added Shieldspray technology, it’s awesome to use. The touch works great, the faucet stays clean, but the Diamond technology really makes this a solid upgrade. No leaks and solid fit the first time around.

It was so easy to install and did it myself without my husband's help great product

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

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
