It’s no surprise that Delta Touch2O® Technology won an award this year, and you can be sure it signals the first of many. The one touch water system is a beautifully simple solution to the all too common problem of how to wash your hands without making a mess of the taps.

Covered in grease or up to your elbows in cake mix, just tap the faucet once with clean part of the body, and again when clean to turn off. There are no taps to get messy, no difficult to clean parts, and change of any bacterial cross contamination.

The Delta faucet is a remarkably efficient water delivery system. It manages water to be environmentally friendly and keep the bills down. This model is a step up from the Infrared sensors which has previously featured on Delta faucets to offer a hands free solution. It typifies Delta’s constant innovation and redevelopment of their own award winning designs, to further improve their range.

Delta Technological Advances

Multi-Flow™

If you wanted the convenience of a shower, with the adjustability of a faucet, the Delta Multi-Flow™ system is perfect. The Multi-Flow™ wand makes for easy cleaning. The extendable hose offer a one touch adjustment of water pressure. It controls your water usage, giving you the necessary pressure when you want to blast stubborn food from plates whilst minimising water flow to rinse and clean ecologically.

DIAMOND™ Seal Technology

Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend however they are remarkably useful for increasing the lifespan of Delta kitchen faucets. Delta DIAMOND™ Seal Technologyuses a valve with a diamond powder coating to replace the ball joint typical in most faucet arrangements. The hardest substance known to man ensures that your valves will last over 5 million uses. Housed in steel casing unit, no metal is ever in contact with water to ensure a long and corrosion free lifespan.

MagnaTite® Docking System

Rather than use a separate hose and faucet, Delta have combined the two into the same unit, taking up the minimal amount of space, and leaving the work surface uncluttered. The nozzle of the tap is also the extendible hose, held in place by the MagnaTite® magnetic docking system. No more struggling to get the hose back in the casing, with a friction free movement to lock the hose and nozzle back in place.

The Touch Clean® nozzle is designed to be easy to clean, with one wipe removing lime build up, and the entire water system provides a green solution for the kitchen to conserve water usage.

This is a great idea, but unfortunately the touch control doesn't work as expected. Sometimes it works and some times it doesn't. It does work well once you convert it to full manual. The company is not easy to deal with. After 6 weeks, emailing pictures of the installation, several unreturned phone calls and emails, they are sending me a new control unit which of course is on back order. This is the last Delta faucet I will buy!
