Rated 3 out of 5 by from Frustrated with the quality We remodeled our kitchen 7 yrs ago and installed the Leland faucet system with soap dispenser. We love the look of it. However, the faucet has never worked correctly, always dripping or slowly running until you jiggle the handle to get it to turn off. And now pieces of black plastic are falling apart from the inside of the sleeve assembly and dropping out onto our counter top. Today, our soap dispenser has suddenly stopped working. You push it down for soap and it stays down, with a tiny trickle of soap coming out. I wish things would last longer than several years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Customer service makes it 5 stars The faucet itself needs to be repaired every 2 years or so, have had this model in my kitchen for close to 10 years now, I have had to replace the spray head a few times, as well as this thing is prone to leaking from normal wear, so new seats and springs under the lever need to be replaced - easy repair. The latest problem involved a stuck set screw on the handle, so Delta sent out the entire handle assembly replacement. Every time I call customer service they are happy to provide new replacement parts, all under warranty, money well spent on a quality product that the manufacturer stands behind.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely disappointed I bought this faucet in December and installed it in January. I have been in my home for 44 years and have had to replace faucets several times. Never have I been so disappointed in a faucet. It looks pretty enough, and it fit what I had wanted as far as style, but the flow is disgusting. While waiting for my sink to fill so I can wash dishes, I can vacuum the entire kitchen. Any motivation to decrease the flow in faucets, if that's really how Delta plans to answer my complaints, has likely been done by humans, who don't have the day-to-day responsibilities of cooking, washing, cleaning. Reduced flow does not save water. It wastes my time!!!!! I was also very disappointed in the previous reviews and wonder if they are done by people, who don't actually use this faucet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I LOVE this faucet! I love this faucet, but I have had some issues. I love how this faucet works. Operation has always been smooth. The magnetite system actually works. The sprayer is great. The soap dispenser is well ok, but it matches. It was very easy to install. I purchased this 9/14/2014. Up until the past 6 months I have had no complaints. Now it is becoming increasingly difficult to shut off. As another reviewer stated, you have to put the water on full; handle straight up. Then pull straight down quickly. If you hit it just right, the water stops. If you are just a little off, it will continue to drip and sometimes pour. I contacted delta and they sent me a replacement part within a week at no cost to me! WOW, a company that actually stands by their products. Customer service as it should be; absolutely zero hassle. I could not have been more impressed. Would I recommend it? Yes, because of Delta customer service, absolutely. I'm only giving it four stars because the handle cartridge started to fail after four and a half years. I've had other Delta products that are still going strong after fifteen plus years. I really do love this faucet. Thank you Delta.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Leland 978-SSSD-DST We renovated our kitchen 10 years ago, this kitchen faucet was our top choice- fit our decor perfectly and we still really like it. Unfortunately, it doesn’t shut off all the way unless you fiddle with the handle just right. We’d love to keep this faucet - can anything be done?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful faucet but leaks We’ve been in our home 6 years and already have a leaking faucet. If you do not have the handle in a certain position, the faucet will leak. After doing research, this is a common issue.

Is the soap dispenser top load or under the sink?

Asked by: Gail
the soap dispenser is a top load - you need to wait before putting the dispenser back on in order to allow air bubbles to surface

Why is the water pressure so much lower with this new faucet and how can I fix that?

Asked by: Rick
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # 978-SSSD-DST has a flow rate of 1.8 gpm at 60 psi. This is the flow rate that adheres to the regulations. We do not recommend trying to increase the water flow.

i want to get matching leland faucet for bar/prep sink but it looks like its not available on stainless?

Asked by: Sara
Hi, 879ol! Thank you for your interest in our Delta Leland faucet. We do have the 9678-SP-DST that is a matching Bar/Prep faucet in our Leland Collection. It is SpotShield Stainless which will match the Brilliance Stainless Steel. We also have the 9978-AR-DST Bar/Prep faucet that is similar in color but it is a brighter, cooler Arctic Stainless finish. Here are the links for both units: https://www.deltafaucet.com/kitchen/product/9678-SP-DST https://www.deltafaucet.com/kitchen/product/9978-AR-DST Best Regards, Rosanna

I am looking for the bottle only.

Asked by: Norma
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # 978-SSSD-DST contains a soap dispenser that cannot be separated into parts for purchase. If you need to replace the bottle, you will need to replace the whole soap dispenser with model # RP50813SS.

What is the difference between stainless steel finish, and artic finish. I am interested in the Leland faucet. Thank you

Asked by: Bosco
Hi Bosco, Thank you for your question. There is a slight difference in the finishes of Artic Stainless and Stainless Steel. Artic Stainless more closely resembles the stainless steel appliances that are available for the kitchens in todays markets. It has a bluish tint to it. Stainless Steel has a golder tone to it and more closely matches finishes in the bathroom. Thanks, Dave
