For almost 50 years, Delta has maintained a solid reputation for its kitchen appliances. The 980T-SSSD-DST Pillar Single Handle Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet is a good example of Delta’s consistent high quality. This faucet uses an innovative “tapping” technology to help you conserve water in your kitchen. By tapping on the spout or handle, you can immediately turn the water flow on or off. You can imagine how convenient this would be if you have your hands full and need to turn the water on or off without putting something down. In addition to this Touch20 Technology, this faucet also features a pull-down MagnaTite spray wand that fits snugly in its docking position. What’s more, the faucet includes a soap dispenser.
Function: 5 stars (out of 5)
Last month I installed this great faucet in my own kitchen, and I’m very happy with how it performs. Installation was quite straightforward. The pull-down spray and docking system work very well, but by far the best feature of the 980-T-SSSD-DST is the responsive touch technology.
Another great advantage of this model is the fact that it doesn’t mess up your sink, and keeping the faucet itself clean is really easy.
Sometimes the touch doesn’t register, and we’ve found that we need to tap the spout a few times to turn it on.
Style: 4 stars
This faucet is elegant and beautifully designed. The aim of this design was to reduce water use and conserve energy without compromising on looks and style. The attractive, sleek look of the soap dispenser also contributes to the overall elegance of this faucet. A brilliant stainless steel finish has a sophisticated look that is second to none.
Durability: 5 stars
In my experience so far, this pull-down faucet looks and feels robust, and I expect that it will last a long time. At first I was worried about the high price of this faucet, but now that I’ve used it for a while, I feel that it’s worth the money because I won’t be replacing it for a long time.
Extras: 5 stars
The touch technology is really the biggest selling point for this faucet. However, the soap dispenser in an elegant and matching design is also a great feature. The modern styling will look great in almost any kitchen décor. The faucet is of a solid construction, solidly-made, and it’s worth noting that the company will ship to locations outside of the US.
Repair and Warranty: 5 stars
This faucet comes with a limited lifetime warranty if you are the original buyer. Delta’s customer service is efficient and prompt, which is great if you do have a complaint to file or if you need to ask for a replacement. The warranty will cover any defect in the workmanship or materials used in the faucet. Delta proudly stands by its reputation for quality, which is why the warranty it offers is among the best in the industry.
