I put one in a few weeks ago. I need to build the video so I can install more.


My only complaint was the design where someone could easily break the bottom connection where the pull out spray tugs on that connection. They should of made that hose a foot longer.


My customer loves it.


The check valves I can see clogging/failing over time fairly easy. Then a cross connection exist if someone leaves the faucet handle on and shuts off through touch.


I got paid $300+ to install it so I'm not going to say I won't do it again....I will.

I have not had any encounters with any yet

I think they would be great for people that have house cats that like to hang around the kitchen sink.

Installed it and it worked except for the touch on the spout didn't work. You could touch operate the lever and it would work just fine but not on the spout. Called Delta, waited for a "tech", who promptly began reading their script and ultimately concluded that they would send a new solenoid. This was shortly before the holidays so the ho did not notify us that the parts had arrived until the first of the year. They reported that, in the interim, the faucet would spontaneously operate at times. Great, what if your not at home and there is a plate covering the drains? Anyway, I returned, swapped out the solenoid and it still did the same thing. She says, "you know what, I don't even care about the touch feature anyway. Can you disable it and make it work like a regular faucet?", "Yes ma'am I can!" Problem solved.

It's a piece of crap and I would not install it again without a signed hold harmless in the event the thing turns on in the middle of the night and floods their house.
Smells,
This is exactly the problems I encountered and I thought the solenoid was bad too.

The rep just removed the battery pack from the wall and placed it flat on the cabinet shelf and the damn thing works like it's supposed to.

Still a POS faucet. HAHAHA

My battery pack was on the floor of the cabinet to begin with.

I just think there is too much risk with something like that. I have read other reports of the things turning on spontaneously. If you're not home and the thing starts running and you've left a sink full of dishes, you are going to come home to a flood.

From the Delta instalation instructions...Page 5

B. Connect wire (6), coming from the valve, to wire (7) of the solenoid assembly. Peel the plastic backing from one side of the Velcro strips (8) and stick to the back of the battery box (9). Peel the remaining plastic backing from the Velcro strips on the back of the battery box (9) and secure it to the wall at a convenient location as close to the floor as possible. (Flat on the floor for best performance.)

It does not say, dont secure it to the wall. It clearly gives you an option.

The point is, this faucet design is a POS.

My point is you should have tried everything before you called a rep to the job and you didn't by your own admission and the repair was laying it flat on the cabinet bottom also by your own admission. Thank you.
