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?
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.

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.
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.
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.

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?
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
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.

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?
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.
