INDIANAPOLIS -  Inspired by the fusion of technology and nature, Delta Faucet's innovative, patented Pilar® kitchen collection performs to fit today's homeowners' busy lifestyles while its transitional look coordinates with most any decor.  The Pilar collection contains the Pilarpull-down kitchen faucet, the Pilar Waterfall® kitchen faucet and the new Pilar two-handle Waterfall kitchen faucet. The pull-down and single-handle Waterfall models are available with optional Touch2O Technology. The Pilar collection is designed for consumers who are looking for a smarter, cleaner and more efficient way to interact with water.

 

Available with intuitive Touch2O Technology, the homeowner can start and stop the flow of water with just a simple tap anywhere on the spout or the handle. "This makes kitchen tasks easier during food preparation and clean up and helps keep the faucet cleaner while helping to reduce the potential for cross-contamination" said Kurt Backland, Delta brand senior product manager.

 

About the Pilar® Collection:

 

Touch2O® Technology

Touch2O Technology makes it easier to turn on the water flow when hands are messy or turn off the water when it is not needed between tasks, helping to save water. A simple tap on the handle or spout stops and starts the flow of water. A blue LED light indicates when Touch2O Technology is engaged, and turns red when the batteries need to be replaced.

 

DIAMONDTM Seal Technology

DIAMOND Seal Technology combines a durable DIAMONDTM Valve with InnoFlex® PEX waterways. The valve requires no lubrication, eliminates wear on seals, and ensures "like new" operation for the life of the faucet, lasting up to 10 times longer than the industry standard. [1] The InnoFlex waterways eliminate potential leak points and are less hassle to install. Water does not come in contact with metal surfaces once inside the faucet, meeting all current and upcoming state and national legislation. [2]

 

High-Arc Spout

The pull-down kitchen faucet's high-arc spout swivels 360º for greater functionality in the kitchen, and the waterfall kitchen faucet spout swivels 180º.

Coordinating Bar/Prep with optional Touch2O Technology

 

Availability

The Pilar faucet is currently available in chrome, Venetian Bronze® and Brilliance® Stainless finishes with an optional, coordinating soap dispenser. A five-year warranty covers the faucet, finish and electronics.
