Delta touch faucet comes with Delta touch20 technology. What this technology means is that the faucet dispenses water when touched with any part of your body and then shuts off when touched it again. So, as the faucet does not require any direct manual handling, touch20 technology keeps your faucet clean while your hands are not. Delta touch kitchen faucet features TempSense led light.
The light acts as an indicator. It shows three different colors to indicate three different water temperatures. For example, blue means 80-degree Fahrenheit, pink is 95-degree Fahrenheit and red is 110-degree Fahrenheit. So, you will not be surprised or feel discomfort after touching the faucet handle and getting cold or super-hot water.
Like a simple touch anywhere on the spout or handle activates the flow of water in Delta touch faucet, the faucet is also touched clean. This means the faucet has soft rubber spray holes. If there are unsightly mineral residue build-up on rubber holes, the residue can simply be wiped away for giving an instantly fresh look.
For securing locking of faucet spray wand, magnetite docking technique is used in the faucet. The technique uses a powerful integrated magnet that snaps your faucet spray wand precisely into place and holds it there. The wand stays locked when not in use and does not dangle over time. It can either spray or stream water.
Delta touch faucet is battery operated. 6 AA batteries are included with two-year battery life. In order to convey or reveal information it an elegant look, it has artic stainless finish. Bronze is used as the construction material of the faucet. Bronze is an alloy primarily consists of copper and addition of other elements for example tin make it much harder than any single element itself.
