Product Technologies:

  • MagnaTite 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 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.
  • Eco 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.
  • Touch 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.

Delta 978-WE-DST Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Magnatite Rocks I will never again buy a faucet without the magnatite feature. The sprayer clicks right back in place when you are finished. The others I have had have loosened over time and not fit snugly after using. I hated that! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Rated This faucet is beautiful. It adds elegance to my newly remodeled kitchen. Who knew that a new faucet could make such a difference. Great quality, fast delivery and the best price around..dont even bother shopping anywhere else! Love FaucetDirect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase This is my third purchase of Delta kitchen faucets I have two homes and have Delta Faucet in both kitchens and laundry room and as expected I am not disappointed! Very stylish, the pull out sprayer is great!! Highly recommend this kitchen faucet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A huge improvement for our home The faucet replaced a junky builder grade which my husband said should really just be fixed. He now admits he loves this faucet -- easy to install, easy to use, easy to clean. By comparison, it seems much bigger visually, which took a while to get used to, Not too long because it was a lot easier to clean the sink and wash dishes. Pull down hose with magnet works great. We got the water saver model, so it takes a little longer to fill a pot, but we're saving water when washing dishes, hands, etc.... We just purchased it a month ago so I can't say much about how it holds up over time .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks Great and Easy Install This unit, along with the soap dispenser, looks really good. It feels rich, goes well with our decor, and our plumber installed it quite quickly. It was a good choice for us. Having said that, I wish it were slightly taller. It also feels much "lighter" than our previous faucet and doesn't have the heft that I associate with higher end faucets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the look! We just bought this set to go with new granite countertops & a brown 60/40 sink. We love the look of it & the product itself. My husband installed it in about an hour. So happy with this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Faucet LOVE this faucet! My previous faucet was beautiful, but I had already replaced it once due to leaking and the new one had started leaking too. My hubby...a very handy guy...suggested buying a higher end faucet and I looked for the most highly recommended ones and found this deal. It's not quite as beautiful as my previous one, has the pullout spray which I'm really enjoying now. It's so easy to rinse out the sink, compared to pulling over the spray as I used to have to do. We had a 3-hole faucet before...soap dispenser, faucet, and we added a new soap dispenser as well. I can see that these products are made better, so expect many years of use and no leaks!
