Appearance And Finishes
This is a modern tap that brings a contemporary look to your kitchen. Its design is clean and simple. You have two finishes, stainless steel and chrome. Both are resistant to all kinds of damage and you also have a warranty.
Finish. It has a length of 9.2511 and a height of 14.311
When it comes to durability, brass is by far the dominant material on the market. It’s the reason why older taps used to last for decades, and this one is made from the same material.
Thanks to the Diamond Seal ceramic disc technology, you can also get a guarantee from Delta that this tap will remain twice as leak-free as the industry standard. It also doesn’t require any lubrication and will reduce damage.
Followers of my blog know that I like the higher pressure of 2.2 GPM. But 1.8 GPM (60 OSI) is not bad, and that’s what you get with this tap. However, the water flows smoothly and the aerator does its job perfectly.
The nozzle head has two functions
- Spraying water
- Flowing water
Both functions feel strong, but there is no backpacking. The switch to switch between the functions is also ergonomic and easy to use. You also have a 20″ hose and a magnetic docking system to make it even more comfortable.
It has three integral mounting systems. As you already know from the pictures, there won’t be any deck plates. You can use two of its holes, but you may want to skip the dispenser. These three holes will be occupied by the tap, the prayer and the soap dispenser. And, you will have the PEX supply line with the faucet.
Installation is easy as it is mostly intuitive. I didn’t find the instruction manual too helpful.
The Convenience Factor
No matter how functional your tap is, it all boils down to the convenience of everyday use. And the whole tap is designed to be easy to operate.
For a start, like all Delta taps of this fury, it has a soft rubber spray hole with minimal calcium build-up. And it’s easy to clean too. You also have a smooth retraction. The weight is perfectly balanced and the magnetic docking system snaps the tap into place.
The hot and cold water controls, as well as the speed control, are spot on. The island sink will pay for itself with its 360° swivel capability.
The tap follows Deltas’ usual warranty policy, as shown in the table below –
|Regular users||Commercial users|
|On parts and finish (other than electronic parts and batteries)||Limited lifetime warranty||5 years|
|On electronic parts (other than batteries)||5 years||1 year|
The installation manual could have been shorter and easier to understand. I also think the hot and cold markings should have been a little clearer. Otherwise, this tap is good for the price. I would like to see more options for finishes though.
