Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Roxi Loving my new faucet!
So far everythings working great! I love the sleek design.
Everyone, from my plumber (who wanted to charge $250 to install it) to my best friend, told me that I couldn't install it myself. I figure it's because I'm a girl. So with something to prove and not wanting to pay $250, I installed it all on my own. The only problem I had was working around the bottom of the sinks, garbage disposal and the pipes. Other than that, it was EASY PEASEY! Although a little pricey (but worth it), I'm loving my new faucet, and that it came with a soap dispenser. It's a piece of art!

TOUCH2O TECHNOLOGY is strange at first but you'll get used to it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Younglady Very Happy With This Faucet!!
We are updating our kitchen so of course when I saw this I had to have it. We did have it installed by a plumber so I don't know how difficult the installation is.
Anyway, after it was installed and I was playing with it I thought it's just as easy to turn it on with the handle as it is to touch it but, it sure looks nice so oh well. But, then I was cleaning the grates for my stove I had it turned on and I could just tap it to shut the water off to save water and tap it back on when I needed to rinse my hands and the grates. That's when I decided I really like this faucet and the touch feature will come in handy. I am very happy with this purchase!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Anna Overall great faucet
I really like the functionality of this faucet. I have not had any issues at this point in time (has been installed for about a month). It also looks great in my kitchen! It was a little more expensive than I would have liked, but I really wanted the touch technology, so I don't regret paying extra.
I had a family friend install and he said it was fairly easy to follow the directions. I didn't install the soap dispenser because I personally don't like built-ins.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by cecilia Good but not great
The faucet looks good and the touch feature is great fun. However, fun is not always want I want from a faucet. The frustration with the faucet are twofold: first the angle of the curve of the faucet is not great enough and there is tremendous splashing. I usually end up with a wet stomach after washing dishes. In regards to the touch feature: If the last time you used the sink you were filling a large pot with hot water and now you want to fill a small glass for a cool drink you end up having to touch the handle and adjust the water temp and force. Wouldn't it be great if the temp and force of water changed depending on where you touched the spout?! Cost is high for the feature.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Outstanding produce
What a great idea. Wash your hands and they're wet and want to turn the water off, no problem. Cutting up chicken and want to wash your hands? Who has not turned on the faucet with "chicken" on your hands or still wet from washing and tried to "one finger" the handle. This product solves that problem. A mere touch with the forearm, back of the hand, elbow or pinkie, and the water is turned on or off. Highly recommended and well worth the little extra you'll pay for a quality faucet.

I too purchased the newer designed Pilar Single Handle stainless steel faucet with Touch2O technology. It did not require a ground wire and runs on 4 C batteries.
The installation went flawlessly. The two flexible plastic water lines come factory installed on the faucet. I think the lines were near 40 inches long. In my case the lines were too long and yet too short to loop each line properly. You are not supposed to loop the line in less than an 8" diameter loop but doing so made the line too short, and bending the tubes any other way just put too much tension on the connection point. So I purchased a PEX tube cutting plier for lack of better words, it was about $12 and it permitted me to make nice clean straight edged cuts--required to ensure no leaks. I did a test cut right at the end of one of the water lines to determine how the tool worked and then made my measured cuts.
The faucet works just as advertised; I followed all the recommended installation suggestions like better performance can be achieved when installing the faucet on a metal sink by installing the battery pack on the floor of the sink cabinet.
I also installed a single basin stainless steel sink at the time and I believe my installation was easier, at least on my neck by not having to work from under the sink to install this faucet. I think you would need two people to retrofit this faucet on an existing sink--one to hold the faucet the other to work under the siink putting on the nuts etc. I also think installation on an existing sink might require special wrenches or small hands. My mitts would have never fit up between the sink and back wall/counter top rear edge.
The faucet has worked flawlessly and has been installed a little over a week. It is such a pleasure to tap the faucet neck with your forearm or back of your hand to wash off chicken or some other food product without the need to touch faucet handles. The temperature of the water is right where you left it set the last time you used it.
Some things need a little adjusting--like filling a tea kettle. Ours has a very small fill hole and the handle does not swivel out of the way. So I have bumped the faucet with my hand or perhaps kettle while trying to fill it. Of course the water stops and I have to bump it again to turn the water back on.
I would also say that the faucet's design has the flow of water shooting on an angle toward the front of the sink, closest to your belly—a bit too forward. If the water flow is turned on high and you are washing something that causes splashes the front edge or you get wet. My old faucet was just the opposite, the faucet neck was so short that water was always splashing behind the faucet--water laid between the faucet and the back splash until it dried or took some paper towels to soak it up.
I read other reviews elsewhere that suggested having a deeper sink would help in this regard. My sink is 8 or 9 inches deep. I would think if Delta turned the faucet neck a little more downward or adjusted the pull down faucet head to shoot the water straight down vs angled forward the problem could be eliminated. But this problem in no way detracts from the pure joy of using this faucet. I just keep the water flow rate at a level that reduces/eliminates excessive splashing.
I like that it runs on battery power and did not require an electrical connection. I looked at the installation instructions on the Delta website before purchasing just to make sure I understood what steps were involved.
I am an average homeowner, I do some DIY jobs and I hire people to do the more complex. It took me a half day to install the faucet because I wanted to make sure it was installed correctly--and reading instruction manuals always requires several reads before I understand what they want done.
I ordered both my Delta faucet and Kohler sink from Home Depot, they both were received in excellent condition and quickly. I did not have to pay for shipping which I thought was great.
I highly recommend this faucet for any one who likes to cook and get their hands messy. I hope Delta designs a smaller model for bathrooms with the same features.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Razman5469 We love the faucet and know that because it is a Delta, it will last.
Excellent product although delivery was longer than originally stated. We know we can trust this product because all we have in our household is Delta products. With Home Depot, we got an excellent price and excellent service with no pressure sales.
