INDIANAPOLIS - Through continued market analysis, Delta Faucet recognizes the growing market for quality, cost-effective plumbing products. To meet this need, Delta Faucet offers an updated Foundations® line, including the Core-B and Windemere® product suites, which offers relevant technologies and designs at a lower price point.


The Foundations line contains full bath and kitchen suites, including a kitchen pull-out option, through the Core-B series. The Windemere series offers a full bath suite with an attractive "J-spout" architecture.


"Core-B targets consumers building or renovating a home where price management is the key focus, while Windemere® offers a more stylized option at a minimal price point," said Allison McKinney, Delta brand product manager. "Though cost-efficient, the Foundations® maintain the brand's mission to find a smarter way to experience water."


About the Foundations® Bath Collections:


ADA Compliant


CA/VT Compliant

Foundations lavatory faucets are compliant with California Health and Safety Code 116875 (AB 1953) and Vermont Law No. 193 (S152), as well as other current and upcoming state and national legislation, mandating that the weighted average lead content in pipes, fittings and fixtures used to convey drinking water cannot exceed 0.25% on wetted surfaces.


MultiChoice® Universal Valve Trim

Once the MultiChoice rough-in valve is installed, future shower function upgrades or style changes can easily be made without altering the plumbing behind the wall. Core-B and Windemere feature a Monitor® 14 series single function option.

About Delta® Products

There is a philosophy at the heart of every Delta® product: there is a better way to live with water. It goes beyond excellent design to incorporate smart thinking that anticipates people's needs. From proprietary Touch2O® Technology that turns faucets on and off with just a touch to H2OkineticTM shower technology that uniquely shapes the water to create larger water droplets that retain heat longer for a more drenching shower experience, Delta products incorporate thoughtful features that delight. Paired with beautiful, inspirational design, it's another way that the Delta® brand is more than just a faucet. Delta products are offered by Delta Faucet Company, which was named 2011 WaterSense® Manufacturer Partner of the Year by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Delta Faucet Company is a worldwide leader in faucets and related accessories and sells products in more than 53 countries. For more information, visit
