Delta 9178-AR-DST Leland Review

Delta 9178-AR-DST Leland 1The Delta Faucet 9178-AR-DST from the Leland collection is a stylish faucet with smooth lines, beautiful finish, and amazing durability. It installs in 1 or 3 hole sinks. Comes with an optional escutcheon to cover up the extra holes in the sink. It adjusts from stream to spray with a simple button on the back of the faucet. It’s extremely versatile. It has a pull down sprayer with Delta’s Magna-Tite docking system that keeps the nozzle in place while the hose is retracted. The Arctic Stainless steel finish will add timeless beauty to any kitchen. Clean Touch spray nozzle tips keep away gross buildup.



Detailed instructions and included tools make for easy installation. There’s a button on the faucet head that switches the water flow from stream to spray to get just the right water flow. Easy to use. I love everything about this faucet.


The switch from hot to cold is only about 2″ so getting the right temperature can be tricky but once you get accustomed to where the settings are it’s not much of an issue. I’ve read reviews of issues with the connector hose. I haven’t noticed any on mine.

Functionality 5/5

Installation is easy and comes with a cover for extra holes in the sink. It has a 54″ reach on the sprayer nozzle so there isn’t much you can’t reach. I can fill my coffee pot straight from the sink. The entire faucet head swivels a full 360 degrees. It makes me almost enjoy washing dishes. I can easily wash and rinse the really large pots because the faucet is over a foot tall from base to top. The adjustability from stream to spray allows me to get the perfect water flow for tough rinsing jobs. It’s easy to clean and works perfectly.

Style 5/5
Sleek lines and durable finishes make this faucet a fit for any kitchen. The single handle design avoids the bulkiness of ordinary knobs. The magnetic docking system in the sprayer head keeps the sprayer hose properly stored and out of sight when not in use. The Delta Faucet 9178-AR-DST Leland has a timeless look that will never look outdated. The Arctic Stainless Steel finish is brilliant and shines beautifully. It looks truly amazing in my recently remodeled kitchen.

Durability 5/5

This faucet is made to last. The Delta company uses Diamond Seal Technology on the hoses and components to prevent leaks. All parts of this spout are made to last through 5 million uses, which is twice the industry standard. The finish is heavy duty and easy to clean. The Touch Clean feature on the nozzle means no buildup to impair water flow. We installed it 6 months ago and everything is still in perfect working order.

Extras 5/5

The escutcheon is included in the purchase so you don’t have to worry about trying to find one to fit. It has an amazing touch clean feature on the nozzle to keep it clear of calcium and other water buildup. It has soft, rubber nubbins that can be cleaned with just a swipe of your finger. The spray head stays in place with a heavy duty magnet. This also helps the sprayer hose retract easily. Delta has a large selection of available extras to precisely match this faucet including soap dispensers and sink aerators.

Warranty and Repair 5/5

This faucet has Diamond Seal Technology which makes it’s components last twice as long as most faucets. Delta provides a lifetime guarantee for all parts as well as the finish so you can trust that you are making a great decision on your purchase of this product. Customer service is a breeze to get in touch with as well, if any problem arises. There aren’t any annoying press 2 for such and such hoops to jump through. You can get straight through to a real person.

Our Overall Rating 5/5

I love this faucet. The Delta 9178-AR-DST model is reasonably priced and absolutely top notch. I have received so many compliments on this faucet and my sister has decided on getting one for her home now. It’s beautiful, durable, and really well made. It was easy to install and has had absolutely no leaks or functioning problems since installation. The faucet looks amazing and is very easy to keep clean. The state of the art features that Delta has included in this faucet go above and beyond most faucets in this price range. Add the lifetime warranty and this product is an absolute steal. Best functional purchase I have ever made.
