Deltas' Faucet Is To Sexy For My Kitchen Right Now, Too Sexy

If you want to have that futuristic look for your new kitchen this is the way to go. Delta has designed a Pilar single handle pull-down kitchen faucet to help beat them germs back. But, you will need a whole bunch of greenbacks to purchase this faucet. They sell this at Lowe's for the mediocre price of $350.00 and a miniscule $250.00 to install this. You will really want to have this really bad once you see it in action. If this did not have the name Delta on it, I probably would not have purchased it, but I trust Delta. This also comes with a 5 year limited warranty.


Description and Features
The high-arc (14") design will allow you to rinse any tall pots and pans that you need to rinse out. You will love the brushed stainless steel look to this unit. This faucet has the latest technology and a very sleek design. This Delta faucet has the Touch 2 O Technology, and will turn and off with just a simple touch on the spout or handle.  The sleek design houses an exclusive Magna-Tite spray head which ensures a tight and snug fit inside of the neck of the faucet.

Below the surface and what you do not see is 32" of supply lines to help supply the water to you. All of the parts are included in the warranty even the soap dispenser. This has several so called "Smart Features" and they are ADA Compliant, Diamond Seal Technology (leak-free, longer lasting, lead-free), Touch 2 O Technology, Magna-Tite Docking, Electronic Faucets, Touch Clean, Brilliance finish, with soap/lotion dispenser, and CA/VT Compliant.
This has the new diamond-coated valve for no leaks and a longer life, this new valve design has diamond embedded discs to help prevent against leaks and any dripping for at least ten times longer than the normal faucet ( and this is on  500,000 cycles). The water supply lines have the Innotek waterways technology and will not crack kink or fail. They have been burst tested up to 1000 PSI and that is ten times the PSI that is normally used in the normal household.

This faucet comes with 32" supply lines so no further purchase of any more hoses is needed. If these are too long all you have to do is just coil them up under the sink, there is no need to cut these. You can cut them but it is not necessary. Once you have connected the supply lines the water inside is protected against touching any metal contaminants. Since this is a one piece construction, there is less of a chance for a leak to appear.

Experience
If you are handy with tools then you can save yourself $250.00 for the installation of this faucet. The only tools that you may need to hook this up will be a pair of pliers, Phillips screwdriver, Allen wrench, crescent wrench, and a roll of Teflon tape.  But, once you get this installed you will simply love it.

Once installed and you start to use this, the first thing that you will have to do is to turn this on manually and then just touch the handle or the neck (or spout) anywhere and if it is hooked up properly then it should shut down immediately. Make sure that your batteries are good, this will need 4 C batteries to operate properly. Plus, it is very important not to mix alkaline and lithium batteries together, because they will explode if they are put together.

This has a very nice feel to it and it has a sufficiently long enough rinse hose that you can pull out of the center of the spout. With just a quick pull it will pop right out of its holder, and only a slight push will reinstall it back into its sitting position. This spout has a magnetic affect on the sprayer head, and when you pull this out, all you have to do to use this is, push the little black lever located on the center of the spray head to get the water to come out.

This faucet will fit two or three hole sinks up to 2-1/2" thick and the spout will tower above the sinks by 14". This will rotate back and forth to allow you wash dishes in both sinks. To adjust the temperature you will use this just like you would a regular faucet, and that is with the handle. You also have the addition of a soap or lotion dispenser (but you do not have to install this) which will operate independently from the faucet. This will also work whether you have a stainless steel sink and a regular countertop or if you have a fancy granite countertop. In either case this will fit them both. If you are mounting this right to a sink they do give you a big black spacer that you will need to use, to allow you to have everything tight when you are done installing this faucet.

You will have to remember that this faucet will not work with portable dishwashers. This does not mean that you cannot purchase one but, just that your portable dishwasher will need another way to be hooked up.

Conclusion
Will wonders never cease, just when you think that you have seen it all. They come out with a new gadget for the home to allow you to keep the germs out of the kitchen. Kitchens are the worst when it comes to having collect on the faucet or soap dispenser. So, when you see and item that will help you eliminate the germ factor or at least win the battle against them, them by all means purchase it at any cost. This may cost a little bit more in the beginning but the end result is less germs in the kitchen.

When Dad or Junior comes in from playing or working on that greasy engine it is nice to know that they are not going to dirty up the faucet by getting grease or soil all over everything. This deserves more than five stars for the ingenuity and workability.
