Product Technologies:

MagnaTiteMagnaTite Docking: Delta's patented MagnaTite Docking Technology uses a powerful integrated magnet to securely hold your Delta kitchen faucet's pull-down spray in place when not in use. A light tug releases the wand for total flexibility and a full range of motion. When docking the wand after use, the MagnaTite Docking mechanism will guide the spray securely back into place.

Diamond SealDiamond Seal: Delta DIAMOND Seal Technology utilizes a ceramic disc valve with a real diamond coating to produce a faucet that will last up to 5 million uses. That's an amazing 10 times the industry standard, guaranteeing a lifetime of leak-free, trouble-free performance.

Touch CleanTouch Clean: Only Delta offers faucets equipped with Touch Clean soft, rubber nubbins (spray holes) that allow you to easily wipe away calcium and lime build-up with the touch of a finger. This is particularly helpful for areas with hard water.

Eco FriendlyEco Friendly: Through a number of technologies and innovations, Delta’s Eco Friendly faucets achieve the impossible: A faucet that feels like more water, while actually conserving water. There are many advantages to this beyond helping protect our nation’s water resources. First, Delta’s Eco Friendly faucets splash less; you won’t have to wipe your counters as much. Second, they use less hot water, preserving your hot water supply and reducing associated water-heating costs. Third, you will feel a little less guilty leaving the water running for longer periods.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from love the faucet I bought this faucet for my 90 year old mother when I updated her kitchen. She was skeptical at first but loves it now that she's used it.

8 Questions from the Community
Loading nanoRep

what is the pull out hose made of ?

The Delta 978-DST has a hose that is made of plastic.

Does this faucet come with a plate to fill the existing holes in my sink that won't be used?

No this faucet does not come with an Escutcheon plate. You can find them by typing in Escutcheon plates into the search.

Please give me dimension of the faucet, I'm in particular interested in the height.

The Delta 978-DST is 14-1/4" in overall height with a 9-3/16" spout reach. The height to the aerator is 7-18".

Can the handle be put on the left hand side of the faucet?

The Delta 978-DST can be installed with the handle on the left side.

What is the difference between the 9178-DST and the 978DST?

The Delta 978-DST and the Deltea 9178-DST are very similar faucets but have a few differences. The function and quality are the same. Their dimensions are a little different and the handles are placed differently; one on the side and one on the unit. Other than that they are the same.

Does the 9192-SS-DST had a plastic pulldown head?

The majority of pulldown faucet heads like th Delta 978-DST have plastic heads. There are 2 main reasons, one being that if it is metal and dropped in the sink it could damage the sink, and the other is that metal heads get hotter to the touch.

I have this faucet. I am having a problem with it dripping after I shut it off. Or it has a small stream. I have to turn it on and off for it to stop. Is there a part that needs to be replaced? If so can you send it to me?

Hello, please call Delta to trouble shoot the problem. They can help identify the issue. 1-800-345-3358. If you purchased it from us it will be under Delta warranty.

Is arctic stainless like brushed nickel?

Arctic stainless is very close to a brushed nickel finish but a bit lighter.
