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!

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

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

Will the faucet work if the power goes out?? Ours is hardwired and we don’t use the battery pack. 

Asked by: Spud
Thank you for your question, Jill. We recommend connecting the battery pack as a backup. The faucet will not work by touch if the the power goes out and the batteries are not installed. You may use the battery box to turn the faucet on and the remove it to put it into manual mode. If you are unable to activate it by touch, you may also bypass the solenoid assembly completely by connecting the pull-out hose directly to the faucet. Best regards, Jon

What is wrong with a Delta Leland kitchen faucet with a RP50587 cartridge when you pull the handle straight down and it won't shut off? I have to push it up to the right and then pull down to cut off the water. This faucet when new has not worked right.

Asked by: Donald
Hi, Donald. Thank you for your question, and I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing a leak from your Delta faucet. We recommend to clean the bottom puck on the valve cartridge assembly and retighten the bonnet nut to stop the leak. To do this, turn the water off at your shut off valve. Remove the handle. Unscrew the bonnet nut. Pull the valve cartridge out and clean the bottom puck on the valve cartridge assembly. Reinstall the valve cartridge assembly and retighten the bonnet by turning clockwise, to the right. Install the handle back on and turn the water back on. Test the faucet. If the faucet still leaks, we recommend to replace the valve cartridge assembly, RP50587. Here is a link to the part: https://www.deltafaucet.com/parts-product-detail?modelNumber=RP50587 Best Regards, Rosanna

Dear Delta, We recently ordered a 9178T-SP-DST from Home Depot after looking up the P/N on the Delta website. After ordering, we realized the Home Depot site does not say anything about ShieldSpray. Has the 9178T-SP-DST always had ShieldSpray?

Asked by: Chambersohana
Hi, Chambersohana! Thank you for your question. The 9178T-SP-DST did not have ShieldSpray technology unitl Winter of 2017. Best Regards, Rosanna

With model 9178T-AR-DST which finish, the Arctic Stainless or the Spot Shield Stainless would match better with GE profile stainless appliances?

The GE stainless has a hint of gold color in their stainless. Should we just try and match the stainless steel sink or the appliances?
Asked by: Mark
Hi Mark, Thank you for your question. Arctic Stainless features cooler metallic tones, with more blue in the color spectrum. Our SpotShield Stainless finish has a warmer tone. Best regards, Jon

My faucet is hard-wired, but we also have batteries in the battery pack for when our power goes out. My question is, are the batteries being used along with the other?  Do I need to take them out and only use when the power is out?

Asked by: Spud
Hi, Spud! Thank you for your question. The Delta 9178T-SP-DST faucet only uses the back up batteries when the electricity is out and the A/C adapter is not being used. We recommend to keep the back up batteries in place. Best Regards, Rosanna
