Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and saves time my previous Faucet took a lot longer to clean my dishes. I like the Delta 9181 because it cleaned my dishes quicker, better and minimizes the splashing I had around my sink on the counter. It’s easy to use and also like the way it looks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this faucet! From the bronze color to the functionality, this faucet is awesome! Having three types of water flow is great and it delivers every time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from We’ll see Replaced another Delta faucet and learned that it was warranted for life and we could have received a replacement. Builder didn’t tell us when we bought. Only issue so far is that it’s height and our standard 18” sink creates splashes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty, but water stream far too forceful and uneven I specifically wanted a Delta faucet and really liked the design and features of this one. But wow--the water is far too forceful on the spray setting. Not only that, it's uneven, with some of the holes having only a trickle of water while others have an extremely strong stream. (See attached photo.) I shouldn't have to get stressed out every time I do dishes! Delta, is there any way to adjust either of these things--without having to call a plumber? :/

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks good, functionality not-so! This faucet looks great but to be honest I do not care for the way it functions. The water temperature is hard to dial in so I flicked the switch so we don't scold ourselves when washing dishes. It limits the amount of hot water that passes the faucet. The other things I do not like are when shutting the water, if you do not make sure it is shut it is very easy to leave it dripping or slightly on, not easy to dial in the actual off position. The other issue is the pressure that the water comes out of the faucet on both setting, way too hard for me, the water splashed all over the place when it hit the dishes or items I am washing. Not a purchase I am happy that I made, sorry Delta it's a miss for us!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking faucet Very happy with this purchase, it was exactly as described on the website, the product dimensions and specifications were available on the website which helped in determining which model to purchase. Installation was very simple and easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, Stylish Faucet Fantastic kitchen faucet. The finish (Arctic Stainless) was beautiful and the faucet is very high quality. I love the magnetic catch on the sprayer and it is very easy to use. Operation of the faucet is smooth and it is easy to set the desired water temperature and flow rate. While I did not install this myself, I took a look at the instructions and it seems that a reasonably mechanically inclined person should be able to install this faucet. They even include a faucet wrench. All in all, I'm very satisfied with my purchase.

I bought the 9181-DST faucet and according to your website it is supposed to have “shield spray technology “. I must have missed something somewhere as mine seems only to have a spray and stream setting. How do I enable the shield?

Asked by: Jeff
Hi, Jeff! Thank you for your question. The Esque faucet 9181-DST didn't always have ShieldSpray Technology. If the faucet was manufactured before October 21, 2017, it will not have the ShieldSpray Technology. You can purchase the sprayer assembly that includes ShieldSpray Technology. The sprayer assembly is RP90840. Here is a link to the part: https://www.deltafaucet.com/parts-product-detail?modelNumber=RP90840 If the faucet was manufactured after October 21, 2017, it should include the ShieldSpray Technology. There is an extra button on the sprayer assembly that will engage this spray. The manufacture's date should be labeled on the faucet's box or the tag labeled with the model number on the supply line under the sink, on the faucet. For more assistance with this, 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
