Delta Faucet Touch2O Technology

Before the introduction to the Delta Faucet Touch2O Faucet, I wuld have never put too much thought into different faucets. I guess I used to think they were all created equal – you know, water comes out. It was after reviewing the touch kitchen faucet, that I realized this was not the case. Ease, convenient, stylish and just one attention-grabbing home addition!

Delta Faucet Touch2O Technology

When I was asked to review the Delta Addison Single Handle Lavatory Faucet with Touch2O.xt™ Technology, I was thrilled. In fact, before it called our bathroom home, I knew this would be a game changer in my house. Right on all accounts!

According to hubby, installation was a breeze. Actually it went more like this: he went into the main bathroom, shut the door and my job was to keep the curious kids out. A half hour later he emerged and claimed it, ‘done!’. Myself and the kids ran in like a stampede on Christmas morning. It was quite funny!

With the Touch2O.xt™ Technology, you need only touch any part of the faucet or be within 4″, to turn the water on or off. With kids, I love this for many reasons. One being that their dirty hands aren’t all over the tap. Being their bathroom, but also the main bathroom, I had constantly wiped and shined the faucet to keep it clean. By touching any part of the faucet instead of what seemed like all, it stays cleaner. Now, I don’t have to constantly pick toothpaste out of spaces.

Before, to turn off the faucet, dripping wet hands got pretty much the whole counter soaked, and usually the mirror. Yep, you can also guess that this leaves less mess as well.

The difference between the Touch20 and .xt models: both are touch-activated, yet the .xt technology bumps it up a notch with an added feature:

Or use the Hands-Free Technology option. Your entire Touch2O.xt™ Technology faucet acts as a sensor so the water starts flowing instantly and effortlessly. It senses your presence within 4” and automatically shuts off within seconds once you remove your hands. It not only helps conserve water, it’s perfect for repetitive tasks like washing your hands.

So, if the ‘cleanliness and convenience aspect’ alone doesn’t win you over, I’ll dive into my favorite aspect of the Delta Single Handle Lavatory Faucet with Touch2O.xt™ Technology = SAFETY!

No matter what type of faucet, I have a HUGE fear of kids and hot water. I’m all about independence and letting the twin toddlers wash their own hands – but there’s a tremendous chance that they’ll reach for the ‘hot’ and scald themselves. Especially when there’s 2 of them in there, fighting for ‘who goes first’. Many times I have interrupted a battle, hands flailing and each one trying to claim the faucet as their own. It’s just ‘a thing’ with me, but it’s just one safety aspect that always had me on edge. So much so, that I taught them to only use the cold tap. Not a perfect solution, since it’s darn cold and chaps the skin after a while, but a temporary fix nonetheless.

Thanks to this new Delta faucet, the water is set for a comfortable temperature for all. With no need to mess with the handle, this lessens the chance of scalding. Another safety feature is that the Touch2O.xt™ Technology incorporates an automatic water flow shut-off after one minute if the water is left running. ‘Cause kids never do that, right?! Ha! The addition of this faucet to our bathroom really is peace of mind for me, and more comfort for the kids. Yet, and we can’t forget to mention that it just looks so sassy and modern, right?!

  1. I can find mine at my Home Depot. And I really like the Linden Single Handle Pull-Out Kitchen Faucet

  2. Nice to know I can shop Delta at my local Canadian Tire, at Meadowvale Towncentre in Mississauga!

  3. I learned – a toggle on a Multi-Flow™ wand increases the stream from the standard 1.5GPM to a higher flow to more quickly fill the sink as well as pots, vases, or other large containers

  4. Delta will replace, FREE OF CHARGE, during the warranty period, any part or finish that proves defective in material and/or workmanship under normal installation, use & service
