While getting my kitchen remodeled, I was really confused about which faucet to buy. There are a lot of faucets of different brands available in the market. This abundance of good quality faucets makes it quite difficult to choose the right one. While looking for faucets even I was pretty confused about which faucet to install. Some of my friends helped me with this and suggested me some of the best. Among them, the most suggested one was the Delta Faucet Leland 9178T-AR-DST Single-Handle Touch Kitchen Sink Faucet.
And I must say it indeed, even in this abundance, is a great faucet, which anyone would love to use. While I looking up for this Delta Leland 9178T-AR-DST faucet, I found out that this brand is one of the youngest faucet brands in the market and the spray head designs that are so popular these days were first introduced to the market by Delta Faucets. They have extended the washer less designs beyond kitchen faucets to bathroom and shower faucets as well.
If we talk about the details of the faucets, technology is the aspect that comes to our mind first. In case of bathroom faucets, I found the Delta brand incorporating the Touchless technology. Whereas in case of the kitchen faucets, they incorporate the Touch20 technology. It allows the user to activate the faucet just by a tapping anywhere on the faucet. This technology is very helpful especially when you want to activate the faucets but your hands are either dirty or busy. You can just use your wrist or forearm to tap on the faucet and it get activated. Moreover, it also helps to keep the faucet cleaner.
Delta Faucet Leland 9178T-AR-DST Single-Handle Touch Kitchen Sink Faucet, which happens to be one of the most recommended faucet design of the Delta brand, also incorporates the Touch20 technology. As mentioned earlier, in order to turn on these faucets, you can touch anywhere on the kitchen spout with either your wrist or forearm or do it manually with the help of the single lever handle. The Delta Faucet Leland 9178T-AR-DST Single-Handle Touch Kitchen Sink Faucetalso allows you to check the water temperature with the help of the TempSense LED indicator that changes color to reflect water temperature.
Next, if we talk about the spray pattern, the Delta faucets offer an extra spray pattern, which makes cleaning chores more effective, other than the regular stream. On some of their faucets, they allow you to toggle between regular stream and different spray patterns. You can also switch to the Spotshield spray pattern. The Spotshield spray pattern provides a jet of water, which is concentrated within a protective sphere and is very effective for cleaning purposes and leaves no mess.
The Delta Faucet Leland 9178T-AR-DST Single-Handle Touch Kitchen Sink Faucet also incorporate the powerful Spotshield spray technology, which makes the faucet very effective for cleaning purposes without any mess. This spray pattern provides a jet of water, which is concentrated within a protective sphere that contains the splatter. Thus with this faucet installed in my kitchen I won’t need to spend much time in soaking and scrubbing with an average of 90% less splatter than a regular spray and can wipe away calcium and lime build-up easily with just a touch of a finger.
Pull Down Design
Next if you talk about the pull down design, Delta faucets feature their own pull down design known as the MagnaTite technology. This design features a powerful magnet, which is built in the end of the spout. This magnet helps in keeping the wand in its place when the spray head is not in use and when it needs to be used, all you need to do is give it a gentle tug.
The Delta Faucet Leland 9178T-AR-DST Single-Handle Touch Kitchen Sink Faucet also comes with Delta’s very own MagnaTite docking which uses a powerful magnet, in the end of the spout, to snap the sprayer in its place when the spray head is not in use, so that it does not droop and stays docked. When it needs to be used, all you need to do is give it a gentle tug.
Other than the technologies, spray patterns and pull down designs another thing to look into while buying a faucet is the finish. Delta faucets are coated with a finish that provides resistance to water spots and fingerprints.This finish technologyis known as the Spot Shield. These finish technologies not only help in minimizing the stains but also offers antimicrobial protection.
The Delta Faucet Leland 9178T-AR-DST Single-Handle Touch Kitchen Sink Faucet also comes with the same finish and thus helps minimises stains and offers antimicrobial protection
Moreover, besides all the amazing features that it has, I found out that one can install Delta Faucet Leland 9178T-AR-DST Single-Handle Touch Kitchen Sink Faucet with confidence as it comes backed by Delta’s Limited Lifetime Warranty. Even the electronic parts of the faucetare backed by Delta’s 5-year electronic parts warranty.
Customer reviews also play an important role in helping new customers decide which product to buy. Though Delta Faucet Leland 9178T-AR-DST Single-Handle Touch Kitchen Sink Faucet is one of the most recommendable faucets, one should check out it customer reviews and so did I.
I found out that most of the customers (73% approx.) have given the faucet a 5 star rating. Some of the customer have reviewed that the finish of the faucet was awesome and the faucet performs really well even after almost a year of continuous use. However, some of them also expressed their disappointment due to the plastic retainer for its extension hose. The same person also did mention that he recently discovered most faucets these days are the same and the Delta Faucet Leland 9178T-AR-DST Single-Handle Touch Kitchen Sink Faucet is not an exception. The customers have also mentioned that the material is not only safer for drinking water but also as strong as copper pipes.
I also found out that these faucets last twice as long as the regular faucets in the market because of the patented Diamond seal technology, which not only helps in reducing the leak points but also ensures leak free operation of the faucets. Moreover, it is designed in a such a way that the installing and cleaning of the faucet is easier. It can fit three hole or single hole, 8-in configurations. The Delta customer supports are also quite quick and help with any issues that you have with their faucet.
After knowing so much about the Delta Faucet Leland 9178T-AR-DST Single-Handle Touch Kitchen Sink Faucet, I could not resist but buy it.
