Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish and practical I bought this facet a couple months ago and love it. I really like the movable sprayer which my old facet did not have. And the finish is much nicer then the shiny chrome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Workhorse We've had this faucet for over 15 years and have only had to replace the cartridge twice. We even used it again when we got new countertops. This has been a great faucet while raising a family of four kids through teens into adulthood and now grandkids. I found it online again as I'm recommending it to my sister for their replacement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fit and finish of the product is excellent; compliments our granite counter tops; blends in perfectly with our custom made oak cabinets. The weight and hand of the product conveys confidence when you use it. You KNOW that the faucet will turn on and off correctly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superior quality and functionality This faucet has a beautiful finish and look. Installation was very easy. Delta faucets are recommended by plumbers due to their functionality and warranty. We were afraid we couldn't find a replacement because the house we bought was 7 years old. The previous owners removed the flow restrictor and voided the warranty so we had to replace the faucet at our expense. It's nice to know Delta keeps their product line running for a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! I replaced a Kohler faucet with this Delta 978-DST. I'm very satisfied. I bought the faucet through a plumbing service company, which also did the installation. I could have installed it myself, but the plumber did it in maybe one-third the time and pointed out things that I might have missed - e.g, greasing all threaded parts, how to remove and clean the aerator (which takes a special wrench that is supplied), how to replace the valve cartridge, and basically how the whole faucet goes together. Plus, I hate lying on my back under a sink. There was an earlier comment that rinsing dishes with the sprayer would cause you to get sprayed, too. Just reduce the flow setting on the control lever, and you will stay dry. The pull-down sprayer is the cat's meow. The sprayer that came with our Kohler (6 years ago) was almost unusable - it wouldn't retract and the hose below the sink would tangle up. (Probably the newer Kohler models are improved?)

what size garden hose aerator adapter should i buy?   i need to hook an aquarium garden hose to the faucet head.  13/16 does not fit.  its too small.

Asked by: tanya101
Hello tanya101! Thank you for your question. We only offer one aerator adapter, RP51505. This adapter converts 21.5X 1-6 g metric thread to 55/64”-27 standard thread. Your aerator, RP50815 has M21.5 threads, however care should be taken as we have not tested and do not recommend using this adapter with the pullout or pulldown spray wands. https://www.deltafaucet.com/parts-product-detail?modelNumber=RP51505 Best regards, Edward

Is this faucet constructed with solid or hollow metal?

I recently purchased and returned a similar faucet from another company because it was constructed of a hollow flimsy metal. I would like to know the weight of this model along with how it is constructed. Thanks.
Asked by: Liz
Hi Liz, Thank you for your question. This faucet weights 6.2 pounds. This product has metal and non-metallic parts. The spout body is solid brass. Best regards, Jon

Using the sprayer

When using the sprayer is there any side splatter or does the spray pretty much stay confined to the nozzle direction?
Asked by: WayneP
Thank you for your question, Wayne. The water should stay within a narrow cone while in the spray setting. Please refer to the product photos to see an image of the spray pattern. The pull-down wand has TouchClean spray holes that allow you to easily wipe away any mineral buildup that can cause errant sprays. Best regards, Jon

what does the 978 AR DST means? There were several different number symbols for the Leland style. What is the difference?

what does the professional version mean. Why does it cost more.? What is the difference? Try to make an educated purchase for a new kitchen faucets. Plumber will install. I must make the purchase.
Asked by: Washington
Dear Washington. Thank you for your question. The Delta Leland Pull-Down kitchen model 978 (model style)- AR (Finish/color)- DST (Diamond Seal Technology). Delta Faucet Company’s DIAMOND Seal Technology is an exclusive new water delivery system that eliminates water’s contact with potential metal contaminants once water is inside the faucet.

Can I order an escutcheon to make this fit a 4 hole sink making the faucet cover 3 holes putting the handle in the 4th hole?

Asked by: Teri
Thank you for your question, Teri! Unfortunately, we do not have an escutcheon for this model. However, you have a couple of options for your installation. You can use this model with two accessories such as a soap/lotion dispenser or hole cover (RP3816, RP52397PC). https://www.deltafaucet.com/kitchen/accessories OR If you are simply looking for a pull-down faucet in the Leland collection, you can use the model 9178-DST instead, which does include a 3 hole plate. Only one accessory would be needed for the 4th hole. https://www.deltafaucet.com/kitchen/product/9178-DST Best regards, Jon

Salesperson mentioned a lower water pressure model and the 1.8 which was recommended.

I have very good water pressure. My concern is splashing in 2 bowl sink (7" deep or especially the small 5" deep. Should I purchase the lower pressure item. Will it last as well? Advice?
Asked by: Phyllis
Hi Phyllis, Thank you for your question. The model Water Efficient (1.5 gpm) version of this faucet is model number 978-WE-DST. Splashing should not be an issue in most instances. However, the 978-WE-DST has a lower water velocity, which helps prevent splashing. Best regards, Jon
