INDIANAPOLIS - Delta Faucet proudly unveiled a single-handle lavatory channel spout option to its popular fleur-de-lis Victorian® collection. Inspired by visions of waterfalls and old-fashioned water pumps, the Victorian® channel spout features the beauty and tranquility of a soothing flow.

Bonus for the Bath

"The Victorian addition is notable for its water-efficiency," said Josh Feldman, Delta brand product manager.  "With the water-efficient aerator on the enclosed spout and an internal flow control in the channel option, the collection provides a smart water delivery solution that maximizes water savings without sacrificing performance, comfort or the aesthetics of the design."

Demonstrating the company's ongoing commitment to conserving natural resources, the Victorian lavatory faucets are labeled by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as water-efficient with an official WaterSenseÒ designation.[1] The lavatory faucets flow at 1.5 gallons per minute (gpm) at 60 pounds per minute (psi), saving approximately 30 percent of water over its 2.2 gpm counterparts.

The Victorian collection also offers a WaterSense labeled showerhead option, helping to save water in the shower without sacrificing the user experience.  Using Delta Faucet's innovative H2Okinetic TechnologyÒ, the Victorian shower improves water efficiency by 40 percent, flowing at 1.5 gpm while providing the feel of an enhanced flow of 2.5 gpm.

With the enclosed and channel spout options, the unique design and old-world charm of the complete Victorian line now has expanded to accommodate the configuration needs of a traditional home.  Inspired by the stylized lily fleur-de-lis, the collection design makes a beautiful statement with classic, timeless architecture.  The quaint charm of the optional riser accommodates vessel sinks and adds a fresh, updated look in the bath. 

Catching Up in the Kitchen

The new Victorian pull-down kitchen faucet features a high-arc spout with traditional influences and a matching soap dispenser.

The spray head is designed with an ergonomic, two function toggle control and the innovative magnetic docking system which eliminates dangling spray wands that can mar the visual appearance of a kitchen. The faucet's magnetic docking system, called MagnaTiteTM intuitively connects the spray head with the spout when not in use for a consistently clean look. The Victorian pull-down's unique magnetic closure was designed to simplify homeowners' day-to-day lives - keeping life neat and orderly in the midst of a hectic world.

The faucet also features the exclusive patented DIAMONDTM Seal Technology, a breakthrough innovation in water delivery, which 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.[2] 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.[3]
