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® SpotShield™ Technology helps to keep your faucet cleaner, longer by resisting water spots and fingerprints. Keep your space spotless with SpotShield Technology, available across a variety of finishes for the kitchen and bath. 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*.

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.

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

We recently installed this faucet in a condominium. When the neighbors use their cold faucets, hot water crosses through our clients 9178T-SP-DST and hot water comes out the neighbors faucets.

Asked by: Bellevue Plumbing
Thank you for your question, Bellevue Plumbing! That is correct and this issue, also known as cross flow, will happen if the RP53468 Check Valves are not installed. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and please feel free to contact us directly if you need further assistance. https://media.deltafaucet.com/PartsDiagram/DPD-K-9178T-DST%20Rev%20D.pdf Best regards, Edward

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

For the last ~2 months, the lt @ the base flashed red when start/stopping the water (indicating a necessary battery change), but worked fine. After no use for a few days the faucet wouldn't work in touch or manual mode until new batteries. Is this normal?

Asked by: boilerbob
Hi, boilerbob! Thank you for your question. This is normal. Batteries would need to be changed when the red light is flashing and won't turn on manually for the Delta 9178T-SP-DST faucet. Best Regards, Rosanna
