  • Spout measures 9-Inch high and 5-1/4 Inch...

As you can probably tell, we really like the Danze Parma Collection! It's no wonder either because the faucets in the collection are as durable as they are eye-catching.

This two-handle mini-widespread lavatory faucet has the same sleek, modern design as the Danza Parma Kitchen faucets that we looked at, but is made especially for bathrooms and has the classic two-handled (hot and cold water separate) design. 

This Danze bathroom faucet has a flow rate of about 1.2 GPM. When a lot of customers see this number, they think that the faucet is going to have a reduced flow rate. Companies are aiming to reduce flow rates in areas where we typically don't use as much water, such as bathrooms.

Compared to all the reasons you use a kitchen sink, a bathroom sink is generally reserved for washing hands, brushing teeth, and shaving. We can attest that 1.2 GPM for your bathroom is pleasant enough, and you might even save a few dollars on your water bill.

  • DECK MOUNT: The trim kit has a 3-hole...

It once was losing popularity to the shower, but Roman Bathtubs are making a comeback in the US, and this Danze Parma Roman Tub Faucet Trim Kit will add style and sophistication to your bathroom. Like their other bath fixtures, it comes in chrome or brushed nickel only, which is a little bit of a bummer if you’re a fan of the satin black like I am. I digress, though!

Many of the Danze products are slightly more expensive than other name brands, but when it comes to chrome tub trim kits, we found that this kit is practically and steal, and other customers agree! 

It should be noted that this model does not include a shower fixture, but you can purchase a matching shower faucet here.

On the Ferguson Showrooms website, user Lorax writes, "I love this faucet set it looks great in our new bathroom. It was easy to install and is as high of quality as all of the other more expensive models -- which I also have. I would truly recommend.”


Danze Faucet Types Explained

Single Handle vs. Dual Handle

Single-handled kitchen faucets use a lever type handle to control the temperature of the water that comes out, whereas the traditional dual-handled faucets still have the two separate levers for hot and cold water.

What you choose will depend mostly upon personal preference, as the functionality of the two types is nearly identical. For practicality and convenience, in my opinion the single-handled faucet wins.

Pull Out & Pull Down

A pull-out faucet refers to the type of faucet that has a separate, pull-out sprayer that is installed next to the faucet spout. A pull-down faucet also has a sprayer, but it is a part of the spout nozzle and can be pulled down for convenient spraying. Both options have become popular in modern day kitchens.

Pre-Rinse Faucets & Pot Fillers

A pre-rinse faucet, like the Danze Parma that we review below, is a commercial-style faucet like what you would find in most restaurants. Pre-rinse faucets are known for their high arcs and heavy-duty sprayers. Pot filler faucets are made pretty much for the sole purpose of filling pots, as their name suggests.

These faucets are often installed right over your stove range and have articulated pieces that can fold out of the way.

Special Features of Danze Faucets

  • Ceramic Disc Valves
    Two fire-hardened ceramic discs slide back and forth to create a super tight, leak-proof valve on your sink. These valves are virtually maintenance free and known for their reliability over long periods.
  • Articulated Pieces
    Articulated pieces means that the faucet is either double or multi-jointed. These faucets can often be manipulated to clean or fill pots or pans quickly, and can also be moved out of the way entirely by folding towards the wall, etc.
  • Twist to Change Patterns
    This unique feature refers to the changing on the spray modes (typically on pre-rinse styles). Instead of having to use a button to change the mode, you can twist the sprayer head to the desired pressure mode.
  • Snapback/Spring retraction system
    The Snapback feature (or "Snappy" as some descriptions call it) refers to the particular spring retraction on pull-down hoses. You can use the hose as desired, and when you let go, it will literally "snap back" into place. These hoses can be adjusted underneath the sink to your length preference.
  • Swivel Flexibility
    Swivel flexibility refers to how the faucet can move in rotation. Many modern faucets are made to swivel so that you can maximize your reach and move the faucet out of the way, should you need to.

Danze Faucet Buying Guide

Style & Finish

Danze faucets come in a variety of different styles, from modern to traditional to antique inspired. No matter what your style or personal preference, Danze has a faucet to fit your kitchen or bathroom.

For finishes, the Danze company uses six different selections, but it should be noted that not every finish is available for every faucet. The finishes Danze uses are:

  • Chrome
  • Satin Black
  • Brushed Nickel
  • Tumbled Bronze
  • Stainless Steel
  • Chrome/Red

Size (Spout Height and Reach)

Faucets, especially kitchen faucets, come in a variety of heights. What you choose will mostly depend on your personal preference and the overall size of your sink.

Sinks with pull-down sprayers are often taller than those with pull-out sprayers. The “reach” of a faucet refers to how far the faucet reaches into the sink. An average reach for a faucet is about 8-9”.

Operation

Danze Parma Pre-Rinse Faucet

Beyond having a single handle or two handles and whether or not there is a pull-down or pull-out sprayer, faucets with electric components are becoming popular to the market.

These faucets often let you turn on the water with a motion sensor (wave of the hand) or with a simple tap anywhere on the spout.

We have reviewed many of these touchless options here. Danze did have a couple of touchless faucets on the market for a while (the Did-U-Wave and eFoodie), but the products fell short of customer expectations, so they were discontinued.

Flow Rate

According to Hunker, the average flow rate of a kitchen faucet is 2.2 GPM (or gallons per minute). In America’s effort to be more energy efficient and eco-friendlier, a lot of the models that we look at have a more restricted flow (around 1.75 GPM).

This is something to consider when purchasing your faucet, but shouldn’t necessarily be a deal-breaker, as some jurisdictions are even beginning to regulate how many GPMs are allowed.

Durability

When it comes to faucets, you will want to make sure that the product you purchase is durable and can stand up to everyday wear and tear. Most Danze faucets are built with a heavy-duty brass and are made to last.

You might find yourself paying more for a Danze faucet than other name brands, but we feel that it is worth the money to assure a high-quality product.

Mounting Style/Installation

There are three standard ways to mount and install a faucet. The first is sink mounted. Traditional sinks have holes built right in them for the addition of a faucet.

Secondly, it is deck mounted. This means that the faucet is installed on the countertop (usually behind the sink). The third way to mount a faucet is directly into the wall. This is popular for pot filler faucets that are installed directly over a stove range.

Number of Holes Required

Sinks have between 1 and 4 holes in which to place a faucet. If you're replacing a faucet, it will be evident how many holes you need to cover when you remove the old faucet.

But the number of holes doesn't necessarily limit your choices on sinks.

If you really love a faucet that requires 1 hole, but you currently have a 4 hole sink, you can install a base plate (usually included with purchase) to cover remaining holes or an accessory like a soap & lotion dispenser.

Warranty

All Danze Faucets are covered by a Limited Lifetime Warranty, except for any electronic components. A 5-year warranty covers all electronic components. Danze will replace any broken parts at no cost to the buyer; however, labor and installation are not included.

As always, we recommend keeping a paper trail of your product (the purchase receipt, installation receipt if done by someone else, etc.) to keep your warranty from becoming void. 


Installation of Danze Faucets

Installing a kitchen faucet isn’t necessarily a job that you’ll need to call a plumber for, but you will need to understand a few plumbing basics to ensure that you hook up your new Danze faucet correctly (without making a huge mess). This handy guide from The Home Depot can walk you through the process step-by-step.

That being said, it's never a bad idea to get your new faucet installed by a plumber. Having a professional do you install means that you don't have to purchase extra tools for the setup, you'll save time, and you can count on it being done the first time. (Did you know that most broken faucet calls are related to a poor install)

Having a professional plumber install your faucet will also ensure that you don't accidentally do anything to void your warranty. In the US, plumbers usually work for an hourly rate of $45-$150, so you might want to shop around first. If you're after a free quote for a plumber in your area, please use the form below. 


Danze Faucet Maintenance

Taking care of your Danze Faucet is not a difficult task. Thanks to their exceptional craftsmanship and ceramic discs, most of these faucets are almost maintenance-free. You will, however, want to keep it clean and free from debris to make sure that it continues to run smoothly.

We recommend a gentle soap cleanser on your faucet, and to regularly brush away any build-up you see around the sprayer. This is mineral deposits and will be more prevalent if you have hard water.

For mineral deposits that are difficult to remove, simply tie a Ziploc bag with white vinegar around the sprayer and allow to soak for an hour or two. The vinegar will break down the minerals, and your sprayer will look as good as new.

What are the proper flushing procedures for a new faucet?

When you install a new bathroom or kitchen faucet, it's a good idea to flush the water lines from any debris that may have gotten in the line during installation. This is an easy task that requires removing the aerator from the nozzle and running the water. This video from Home Depot can show you how.

What is the price range of these models on our list?

In general, the prices of the Danze faucets on the list we’ve reviewed varied from around $150 to upwards of $500+ depending on size and functionality.

Where is a good place to buy new Danze faucets and older parts?

We recommend purchasing your Danze faucet through Amazon, not only for their great prices but because Danze is a trusted seller on Amazon and you can rely on their fast shipping.

Especially for replacement parts, Amazon is a great place to shop because they will often still carry the parts for models that have been discontinued/updated since the time you purchased them. (But remember, Danze customer service is your first stop for replacement parts with your warranty!)
