Smart solutions, Touch2O™ Technology Overview by Indianapolis based Delta Faucet. 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.
1. 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.
2. 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. (Note: Delta Faucet “Hands” TV commercial music is by Count von Count of Sesame Street, a track titled “Hands”. You can download the song at iTunes.)
3. 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.
4. 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.
5. 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.
6. 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!
