Rated 4 out of 5 by from needs maintenance I have had this dispenser for almost 2 years. like it was mentioned ,it does not pump as smoothly as it use to. I took the pump apart and greased the o-ring. it works like it use to now. I put some rubber hose on the pump and ran it to a gallon jug of soap. it seems to be working.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soap dispenser Love this soap dispenser! Looks more traditional and not so industrial because it has a curve! You fill it in the top and the hole is a little small. Remind them to put the funnel in the box when they mail it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replacement parts?? We have had this pimp for a few years and has slowly stoped working. Now only getting a little soap out of it. The pump will no longer do a full stroke even after flushing a lot of water through it. This is a brushed stainless finish and can't find a replacement. Can you get just the pump??

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Delta Faucet RP47280AR Allora, Soap/Lotion Dispenser I purchased this dispenser in July of 2014 and it worked fine for the first 2 years then the quantity of soap dispensed decreased gradually to zero over the course of 5 or 6 months. I removed the pump to see if there was a blockage and found pieces of black rubber falling out of the pump chamber. I suspect that the material is not compatible with the dishwashing soap and disintegrates over time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from You can fill from the top! I was about to write a nasty review but then I read the input from the Delta person and yes, you certainly can refill it from the top. It just takes a good tug. I am SO excited about this as there was no instructions and I realized that with my undercounted sink and disposal, I could NOT reach to refill it from the bottom. Thanks for the good customer information online!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from If you enjoy crawling under your sink monthly to refill the soap bottle then buy. Purchased product thru Amazon. NO INSTRUCTIONS. Can not fill from the top. There were some other post on here that suggested that you had to forcibly pull up the whole spout but I am apparently not strong enough. Delta should recall this product. DO NOT BUY! I do have a problem call in to Delta. No response yet.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I like the looks of this dispenser, however, it hasn't held up. I have similiar issues with this dispenser as others . About 1pump , sometimes 2. Would not recommend. Matches faucet, but, has not held up. Not only does it not pump anymore, it squirts the soap all over , not just in the sink. Poor workmanship!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Have issues with function of this soap dispenser. No longer pumps soap. We are unable to give this product a good review. We put all Delta fixtures in our home when we built and have issues with kitchen dish soap dispenser since the beginning. Pumping action is not productive, went from minimal dispensing to now nothing. From other responses, we are not sure we want to replace with same product even though we like the looks of the item.

How to fill this dispenser?

Ok, you have no technical documents available, no illustrations with the previous questions, very poor instructions in the previous answers,if we didn't install the unit, which I didn't. I tried the quarter turn, nothing, I tried removing the pump top, only to find a minuscule little orifice. ( if that is the hole to refill, I am returning this product). Long story short, for someone who has not seen any technical instructions, did not install the product. Just exactly how does a person refill this? Remember you handle this every day, I don't, so please utilize layman's terms

It pulls off the base but chances are you will break a fragile tab in the process (I did). Beyond doubt, the worse design I have ever encountered for a soap dispenser.

Is the Allora bar faucet metal or plastic? (Arctic stainless) Is the matching soap dispenser metal or plastic?

Asked by: KSep
Hello KSep, Thank you for your question. The Delta Allora Bar/Prep faucet use either metal and plastic combination or a proprietary mixture of components so that the product has a high quality, while maintaining safety control with the various temperatures of water that go through the product. The RP47280AR is all non-metallic. Delta Faucet Company takes extreme pride in the quality of its products, and strives daily to meet and exceed the expectations of our customers. Best regards, Tanya

It was my understanding that the soap dispenser package included a funnel to fill it. I received no funnel. There are no directions as to how to open the dispenser and how full it should be filled so to allow air into the bottle and pump to function properly. I don't want to force it open & break a mechanism.
Asked by: dave
Thank you for your question. Funnels are not included with our soap dispensers. All of the Delta Faucet soap dispenser are recommended to be filled from the top. We recommend filling it to the neck of the bottle.

I need installation instructions, just purchased one and it must have been one that was returned.

Asked by: Barbara
Hello Barbara, Thank you for your question. I have also included a link to the instructions below. The soap dispenser installation instructions are on page 9 module 5. Here are the directions for installing the RP47280AR soap/lotion dispenser. Remove the bottle (1). Separate head (2) from body assembly (3). Make sure gasket (4) is properly seated in the base of the body assembly. Insert body assembly through selected hole in sink. Secure body assembly to sink with nut and gasket (5). From under the sink screw the bottle (1) onto the body assembly shank, then attach head assembly. Note: To fill, lift the head and pump assembly out of the bottle and pour not more than 8 oz. into bottle. DO NOT remove the bottle each time as this weakens the neck. Use a funnel to help prevent spills. Pull pump and head assembly out occasionally to soak and pump warm water through pump to remove soap build-up. Note: Initially it may take up to 12 pumps to bring soap to the pump tip. Best regards, Tanya

How do you refill dispenser #RP47280?

Can this be refilled from the deck or is the only way to refill it by crawling under under the sink and taking the bottle out?
Asked by: susie
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet part # RP47280 is recommended to be filled from the top. Just pull the pump out and pour the soap inside. We do not recommend unscrewing the bottle everytime to fill it.

It is so nice that you are trying to explain how to take it off to refill it, but it is difficult to understand from text alone.  Could you post a video?  If not sure if i should pull on the whole unit, the unit above the seam, or the pump handle

Asked by: Clewis
Hi Clewis, Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, we do not have a video for refilling the soap dispenser. You can either pull the full head assembly off the and refill the bottle from the top or remove the soap bottle below the sink and refill the bottle and re-install it. Best regards, Tanya

Why is there virtually no information in the document and spec tab? No height, how far the nozzle is away from the base,etc? only one dimension.

Asked by: Little Stevie Wonder
HI, Little Stevie Wonder. Thank you for your question. The Delta RP47280 soap dispenser is part of our Allora kitchen faucet. Here is a technical specification sheet that will include details about the soap dispenser: Best Regards, Rosanna

Still do not understand how to refill RP47280 from the top.

The only way I see to take the entire dispenser out from the top, as you suggest, is to unscrew it and by doing that the bottle that is under the deck will fall. What part on the top unscrews and what part on the top stays in place in order to keep the bottle underneath in place? susie
Asked by: susie
We do apologize that you are having trouble with this. The bottle is screwed onto the shank and the top of the soap dispenser is screwed onto the the other end. It should not fall if the two are taken apart. If you turn the soap dispenser about a quarter turn and then lift it off, you should be able to fill the bottle down through the shank.
