The literal translation of “a room with a bath” has evolved into a more technical description where a “full bathroom” must comprise four plumbing fixtures: bathtub, shower, toilet and sink. After these four essential elements, it is all up to us to mix and match materials to transform a utilitarian room into a peaceful private spa, a glamorous spot to put on make-up or an eco-friendly place to shave. Bathroom cabinets and bathroom vanities store the ever increasing number of necessary products. Today, well designed bathrooms are beautiful, durable and highly functional.

How many of us have been in the middle of preparing dinner and needing to wash up but don’t want to touch the faucet with our raw meat hands?

Delta Faucet has brilliantly delivered a solution: the Touch20®  faucet, which turns on when you simply tap anywhere on the spout or handle with your wrist or forearm (or any part of you that isn’t messy).

From Delta: It doesn’t matter if you have full hands or ten messy fingers. Keep the faucet clean, even when your hands aren’t. Tap anywhere on the spout or handle with your wrist or forearm to start and stop the flow of water. Touch20® Technology can also help you conserve water. As you prepare food or wash up in the sink, it’s easy to turn the water flow off when it’s not needed between tasks.

Delta Touch2O FaucetFREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do I turn it off and on?

You may choose to operate the faucet as you would any standard single-handle faucet by moving the handle to the on and off positions. You may also tap it on and off with a deliberate touch, like that of playing the piano.

How do I control water flow?

You control water flow manually with the handle, just as you would operate any standard faucet. When operating the faucet in “Touch” mode, the water flow setting remains the same as the previous use.

How do I control water temperature?

You control the water temperature manually with the handle, just as you would any standard faucet. When operating the faucet in “Touch” mode, the water temperature setting remains the same as the previous use.

Are there any safety features?

Touch2O® Technology incorporates an automatic water flow shut-off after four minutes if the water is left running with no activity.

Do I need an electrician? What about a plumber?

No. The installation process is just like installing a regular pull-down faucet with an addition of one more component and a few easy-to-connect wires. Because the faucet works on batteries, there is no need to hire an electrician to assist with the installation. Even the batteries are included. With DIAMOND™ Seal Technology, the integrated supply lines mean everything is included in the box.

Watch the installation video.

What’s the difference between Touch2O® and Touch2O.xt™ Technology?

You know that static discharge you experience in the winter after walking on carpet and then touching a metal object? That is the result of a characteristic for storing energy in the human body called “capacitance.” Touch2O® Technology uses capacitance sensors to detect human touch and turn the faucet on and off. But don’t worry, it won’t give you a static poke!

Both Kitchen and Bath Touch2O® Products are available. Read more: http://www.deltafaucet.com/smart-solutions/touch2o-technology.html#ixzz1xmmA7xsT

When installing kitchen sinks, there are two basic ways to mount them to the counter: under-mount or a drop-in. This is important because not all sinks come in all mounting styles and not all countertops are built to work with all mounting styles. Also, each one has some advantages and disadvantages, which anyone thinking about a new sink needs to be aware of.

Undermount kitchen sinks

Undermount kitchen sinks do just what the name implies. They attach to the counter from underneath. This allows the counter to overlap the sink, allowing you to wipe crumbs directly into the sink without getting stuck in the gap left by drop-in models. It also gives the appearance of being an integrated sink without the cost. An integrated sink is one that appears as if it has been carved out of the counter, leaving no seams or any gaps of any kind.

One disadvantage of the undermount style is that you need to have a strong countertop to support them, granite or marble work well. Sometimes the weight of a heavy stainless steel can weaken the underside of your counters. If you don’t have granite or marble countertops, there are ways to make sure the sink won’t fall.

Drop-in kitchen sinks

Drop-in kitchen sinks are the style that “drops-in” a pre-made hole in the countertop. They are circular shaped bowls that, though often used in bathrooms, have a place in the kitchen as well. A great idea for a drop-in sink would be a kitchen prep sink, maybe in an island. A big disadvantage of this style is the gap it creates against the countertop. No matter how precise you measure, you will still need to caulk around the edge, which leaves places for crumbs and food to get stuck.

When you’ve decided what mounting style works best for your needs, make sure that the style you want is available in the mounting style you want. If it is, you’re good to go. Now you just need to decide whether to hire someone or install it yourself.
