The Delta Faucet Company came to life in 1954 with the introduction of the single handle faucet. Since then they have added a great expanse of innovative products that incorporate style and award winning functionality. They have also broadened their horizons by developing two other popular brands Brizo and Peerless. The Smart Innovations that delta incorporates into their faucets and showers truly set them apart. Delta stays ahead of the game by using technology that anticipates people’s needs and makes their kitchen and bath experiences easy and more enjoyable. Let’s take a closer look at some of Delta’s Smart Solutions that keeps consumers coming back time and time again.
ActivTouch – Starting in the shower Delta offers a full line of hand showers with ActivTouch technology. These nifty hand showers have three buttons on the back that lets you easily rotate through eight, yes eight spray options with the push of a button. It also has a “control” button which turns the full spray into a mere trickle to conserve water when you are lathering up. Plus on top of all this great functionality they are WaterSense certified so you’ll be saving water while getting a nice massage.
Multi-Flow – If you’ve ever been standing there waiting for your water efficient kitchen faucet to fill up a large pot, well….it can take some time. Now don’t get me wrong, water saving is great but sometimes you just want to fill that pot and not wait 10 minutes. So if you want to buy a water saving kitchen faucet but want one that has a little more kick then check out the Addison and Linden lines. These beautiful looking faucets have this cool little button on them that activates the Multi-Flow feature to put your faucet in overdrive. This is just another convenient addition that Delta adds to their faucets to let you know they are thinking about you.
Diamond Seal Technology – The cartridge is the heart of your faucet and without a good one, all you have is a nice looking faucet. Delta’s Diamond Seal cartridges use a valve with a diamond coating that makes their faucets last up to 5 million uses and keeps the water inside the faucet contained so it doesn’t mix with any harmful contaminants. By using diamonds which are the hardest substances known on earth, their cartridges last up to 10 times longer than the industry standard. They also incorporated a handle stop limit which limits the range of hot to cold so you or your children don’t scald themselves.
Magnatite Docking – This is one of the most ingenious and simple things you wish every manufacturer would incorporate into their pull-out kitchen faucets. Magnatite Docking uses a simple magnet to hold the spray head firmly in place when it’s not in use. What a great idea! Have you ever owned or seen a great looking and expensive pull-down faucet that had it’s spray head hanging down ½” lower than it’s supposed to be? This really ruins the look of the faucet and probably makes you wish you hadn’t bought that model. Adding this powerful magnet will ensure you will never have a “droopy” kitchen faucet again.
EZ Anchor – For all you Do It Yourselfers out there, here’s an innovation that will make you look like a pro. Plumbing just like electrical work can be very intimidating with the copper pipes, the soldering, the hot and cold, what goes where? Well Delta’s EZ Anchor makes installing a kitchen faucet a breeze. Just screw the hoses on the water lines under the sink and the rest of the installation is done above deck. Usually you have to awkwardly crawl under the sink on your back and try to screw the faucet to the deck in the uncomfortable dark, but not anymore. Thanks Delta!
That’s just a few of the little things Delta incorporates into their faucets lines to make your life a bit easier. And that’s just the beginning, they have a ton more like the Palm Shower, In2ition, Touch2O, H2Okinetic, Touch Clean, and the list goes on and on. But we’ll save that good stuff for part 2 of Delta Smart Innovations.
