Moen 7594ESRS Motionsense Kitchen Faucet Review 2022
This faucet has been a heavyweight bomb from the start. Now, more advanced faucets are available, but its price point has steadily dropped and it is still profitable in the marketplace. So, we wanted to take a closer look at it.
It’s from the Moen brand’s Arbor line and is one of the best faucets in the Moen Motionsense reviews I’ve done so far.
It has three spray patterns, a sleek and stain-free finish, and a convenient pull-down design. The installation process for this faucet is also easy. And we all know how efficient Moen after-sales service is.

Reviewing The Individual Features Of The Kitchen Faucet
Just like any other top food chain product, this kitchen faucet has a variety of features that make it highly sought after in the market. Here are all of those features
Description of these features.
Stylish And Effective Finishes
This faucet comes in four awesome designs. They are-
- Chrome Plated
- Matte Black
- Oil rubbed bronze
- Spot Resistant Stainless Steel
All of them are resistant to water stains. We have emphasized the steel ones because stainless steel is almost as prone to water stains like a magnet. But not in this case. On top of that, it resists fingerprints. So, now you can spend more time using the faucet than cleaning it.
And, I don’t think I have to brag much about the appearance. Because you’re already looking at the pie. We can only assure you that it’s the same as the oak tree in the picture.
Installation Of Moen Motionsense
Moen always pays a lot of attention to the installation process of their mid-range faucets. Mainly because their purchasers may want DIV kitchen faucets. Even though this faucet is full of quality features, it is still priced at a mid-range level.
Moen provides their complete installation process in the manual. We have here a diagram of the different parts of the faucet. In the diagram, the part number of each part is indicated.
Each part is noted. If you need to replace any of them, you can order them directly from Moen. You must order by these part numbers.
It features a Duralock quick connect system with compression connections, making the installation process very easy. In addition, you will be provided with supply lines. You will get most of the installation equipment and the faucet.
This faucet is installed on the deck. Therefore, you must pay attention to the installation location and sinkholes. This particular Moen faucet is compatible with both one-hole and three-hole decks. However, the two and four-hole will not be compatible with it because it is made to be compatible with most American kitchens.
And you will be able to install it on decks up to 2.5 inches thick. There will also be a 68-inch hose and a quality deck plate to further reduce your total cost.
This faucet uses motion sensors to detect objects and our hand gestures. It has two. One is near the bottom of the faucet and the other is at the top of the spout. The top one detects gestures. A sweep on the spout releases a continuous stream of water, and another sweep stops the stream.
Please note that it is not a heat sensor. So, it will also detect inanimate objects of different temperatures. These sensors are also optional. You can turn them all or any of them off if you wish. The optional convenience is the convenience itself.
This faucet has a maximum flow rate of 1.5 GPM (5.7 LPM). This is an outstanding performance for a faucet of this budget.
It has a classic gooseneck design curvature. It can rotate 360 degrees and has a 7.87-inch range, giving it a total range of 194.58 square inches. But in reality, you’ll only use half of that. So, your total usable area is close to 100 square inches.
On top of that, you’ll have a spout height of 15.5 inches. So even in a large sink, you’ll have a good flow of water.
Other Design Factors And Dimensions
The design of the spout elevates it to a luxurious status, and the rest of the faucet follows suit. While it has two sensors, it also has a right-hand handle. You can get this handle in various types of finishes if you need to replace it. The maximum height of the faucet is 15.5 inches and it gives you a sophisticated and elegant look.
I wouldn’t be able to mention it as one of the best mid-range faucets if it didn’t have a pull-down spout. You can easily use the pull-down feature to achieve the best results when cleaning. It also has a reflex system for smoother operation.
Docking is super easy. However, it would be nice to have magnets. The pull-down hose is also flexible and never affects the force of the water flow. It has 50% more power than other pull-down faucets.
If you’ve worked in a kitchen, you know that various activities require different types of water flow. In this faucet, you will have the following spray functions-
- Pause function
- Powerful cleaning rinse function
- Aerated water flow
The aerated water stream is for everyday cleaning, while the powerful cleaning rinse is for heavy cleaning, especially when you have to clean stubborn stains after a big meal or party. Finally, the pause function helps you stop the water flow when you need it. This can save you money on your water bill and make working in the kitchen easier.
However, the powerful rinse function won’t give you a strong splash of water. It will clean your dishes and perish if it touches the sink.
The sensor will require electricity. You will get a battery pack of 6AA alkaline batteries and their holder that will keep the faucet running 24/7. If you want to connect directly to the wall, you will have to purchase a separate AC adapter.
In the United States, the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) outlines the regulations that a faucet must meet in order to be considered safe for public consumption. The Moen 7594ESRS Arbor Touchless Kitchen Faucet has earned the badge for being safe for all Americans.
In addition to this, it complies with current legislation, including California’s ab1953 and Vermont’s s152.
Commercial And Residential Use
This faucet has one of the most sophisticated looks at a very compatible price. Although it is designed for personal use, commercial establishments also find it very useful. So, if you are setting up an office, you can opt for this faucet.
Here are some of the criticisms of this faucet
- No Hold Function
The spray does not have any dwell function between automatic uses. You must select the spray mode every time and there must be enough water to hold the spray when you release the spray button.
- The Water Temperature Of The Sensor Is Not High Enough
This may be confusing to some new users. When you activate hot water with the sensor, you will have a mix of hot and cold water. To get really hot water, you have to use a lever.
- No Magnetic Ring
Pull-down spigots should have a magnetic docking system.
