My New Delta Touch Faucet!

December 12, 2009

kitchen, plumbing

Isn’t it beautiful? It’s the Delta Pilar with “Touch2O® Technology.” Which means that the faucet handle will no longer be slimy, sticky, or gooey! I am THRILLED.


We are going to have a lot of fun with this! Even the kids are excited. And they should be. Now, I won’t yell at them because they touch the faucet handle with gooey hands. I hate that. :-p


The faucet is beautiful. It’s got a lovely brushed bronzed/steel look to it. The set comes with a separate faucet handle and a soap dispenser, too! The spray wand is incorporated with the end of the faucet spout– we’ve always wanted one like that. God bless the folks at Delta for sending me this– for free– to review!

I’m doing some reading up on the faucet installation. Thank God, the website has some good tutorials (videos!); I’m watching them over and over again to fully understand how to do this. We MAY have a test run on the sink before we gut the kitchen. I’ll keep you posted with all the play-by-play details.

I love Delta. The house still has all the original faucets– and the Delta are the only ones still working properly after 30+ years. I’ve promised myself that I will only buy Delta fixtures because of the reliability of the brand. NO going cheap on fixtures! This new faucet has DIAMOND seal technology and a Magna-Tite docking system, to prevent leaks and to make sure the spray wand gets a tight fit in the faucet every time.

I’ll have loads more details about the other stuff we’re planning for the coming renovation. I’m looking into flooring and cabinets right now (whoa, I’ve got sticker shock). And of course, I need to read up again on how to wire a kitchen. It’s more complicated than a regular room.

Our demolition date is loosely set for May. Before then, I need to have everything mapped out, make a materials list, create a temporary makeshift kitchen into the garage, and pack everything up. I also have to rent a dumpster. :-p When we gutted the living room, we were able to bag all the plaster and take it to the dump; the kitchen is twice the size of the living room, so I think I’ll have to rent a dumpster.

More to come!

    What an awesome faucet! That’s the one I’ve had my eye on for a while. I love the idea of having the sprayer incorporated in such a way. That’s going to look amazing in your “new” kitchen!

    You are going to love that faucet! My new one has the sprayer incorporated like that, and it works like a dream. Got a big stock pot to rinse off? Just pull the sprayer out and let it run over the pan right in the sink without getting the whole kitchen soaked.

    And I can fill that pot to cook some pasta while it sits on the counter. No more trying to get it in and out of the sink!

    I will never be without one again … God willing. 🙂
