In this article, we will examine the Delta craftsmanship and quality that has been around for over 80 years, including their latest innovations. We will bring you the Delta faucet reviews that will help your final decision in which model to buy. Whether for your kitchen, bathroom, shower, or laundry, there is a Delta faucet waiting for you.

Delta Faucet was born in Detroit, Michigan as a child of the Masco Corporation. In 1954 the first Delta faucet was made and innovated the industry. The single handle faucet sold over $1 million in just four years and spurred the parent company to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange.

Delta Faucet Types

There are many different types of faucets, and each one serves a specific purpose. Whether you are looking to fit a guest bathroom or add a new look and functionality to your kitchen, Delta faucets will have what you are looking for.

Single Handle Vs. Dual Handle

Just because Delta pioneered the single handle faucet doesn’t mean that is all they offer. When you first decide you want to install a new faucet, your first consideration will be how many handles. Each option has pros and cons.

A single handle faucet is ideal for one-handed operation. If you are regularly washing your hands from food prep or gardening, for example, using one hand to turn on the water flow is a great help. However, it can be challenging to get the right temperature, especially if you are holding a handful of vegetables that need washing.

A dual handle faucet is more common in the kitchen and bathroom. One handle will control the cold water flow while the other controls the hot water. Most counters and sinks are pre-drilled for a two handle faucet, utilizing three holes (four holes if there is a separate sprayer) to mount the faucet accurately. Delta kitchen and bathroom faucets come in both single and dual handles, so ultimately the choice is yours based on your style preferences and needs.

Tall or High Arc

If you need space in the kitchen to do more tasks, a tall faucet will come in handy. Filling cooking pots or pitchers can be difficult unless your faucet is tall enough to accommodate them. If it isn’t, you may have to use the sprayer, which can take longer and make a mess. The Delta tall faucets have a larger spout reach and allow you to place larger items underneath.

If you need even more space, a high arc faucet may be in order. A Delta high arc faucet will give you the height of a tall faucet and even more spout reach. These are ideal in prep sinks or high-traffic kitchen sinks where washing dishes, cleaning foods, and prepping for meals requires the water to reach more into the middle of the sink than the back.

Pull Out and Pull Down

Of the more recent innovations in home faucets, the pull-out and pull-down faucets are among the most appreciated. Instead of having a separate sprayer, the spout itself is removed from the neck and can be used for various tasks.

A pull-out faucet will generally have a smaller neck but a longer hose. There is also a great deal more maneuverability, which allows you to fill jugs or water plants outside the sink area. These models pull straight out from the neck of the faucet and can reach over three feet in some models.

A pull-down faucet, then, comes down from the neck and is usually a part of a tall or high arc model. The hose is typically shorter than a pull-out model, with most units maxing out around a foot and a half. They do, however, have less of a tendency to have tangled or twisted hoses and will typically last a little bit longer without issues.

Touch Vs. Touchless

If convenience is a part of your plan, having a touch or touchless operated faucet can be a time saver. Both models use a battery powered valve to start and stop the flow of water, and most, if not all units will have a more permanent AC plug-in option too. The two faucet types do have a longer installation time, but the result is worth it.

A touch model will have a single handle to select the water temperature, and you can then turn the water on and off by touching it with any exposed skin. Using your hand, forearm or elbow, for example, will keep the faucet cleaner, less likely to transmit germs and prevent you from having to do as much cleaning to keep it looking new.

A touchless model uses a motion sensor instead of capacitance energy (touch transference) to open and close the water valve. When you wave in front of the sensor, the water will come on and will shut off again when you wave a second time. Obviously, the less you touch the faucet, the cleaner it will be, and the less chance of germs or bacteria building up there is.


Why Choose Delta Faucets?

We could write an entire book on the reasons you should choose a Delta faucet. Instead, we will cover the primary reasons Delta faucets should be your first choice: Options, Dependability, and Innovation.

It is no secret that Delta is an innovator in the faucet industry. Starting with the first single handle faucet up to developing new technology for hands-free faucets, Delta leads the pack. By the time their technology is installed in your home, you will know why the right choice was to purchase a Delta.

Not only are Delta kitchen faucets and bathroom faucets innovative, but they are also durable. Scratch resistance, anti-corrosion, and other factors go into every faucet made. The company stands behind every faucet so much they offer a lifetime warranty for as long as you own your faucet. That is the definition of dependability.

Finally, you have options. From the mounting to the number of handles and even the flow rate; you get to choose what is ideal for you and your home. There are more choices for a Delta laundry faucet than almost any other brand. The Delta shower faucets are both elegant and functional, and each faucet produced will give your room a new look and be useful for years to come.


Faucet Buyers Guide

If you are unsure about what you should be looking for in a new faucet, this is the section for you. Here we will explain what deciding factors should go into your final purchase choice..

Style and Finish

Most likely, the first deciding factor for your new faucet will be how it looks. You will want the faucet to match the decoration and style of your room and the entire sink area.

Part of the style is the finish, and Delta doesn’t disappoint. Their faucets come in a variety of finishes from polished chrome to brushed nickel, brass and everything in between.

Size

Size is another crucial factor and is often overlooked. The width of your faucet needs to fit the mount you have prepared for it. Generally, kitchen and bathroom faucets are at a 4-inch placement, also known a centerset. Widespread faucets can fit up to an 8-inch placement and don’t have a base.

However, you should also note the height of the faucet and plan accordingly. Tall or high arc faucets look great in a kitchen but can become a burden if the cabinets or shelves above are too low to fit the faucet properly. Make sure you measure correctly and double check all the dimensions before making a purchase.

Operation

The main job of a faucet is to deliver water at a specific temperature. Delta faucets do this job extremely well. However, it is how this water delivery is made that is important. Another deciding factor in your purchase should be the operation.

Do you want to use batteries or an AC adapter to use motion or touch sensors to turn the water on? If you prefer a more standard method, you still need to decide if you want a single handle or dual handle faucet.

With a touch or touchless faucet, you select the temperature with the small handle, and that is where it stays. With a handled faucet you will need to choose the heat every time by turning the handles more or less to open the water inlet valves. The choice, of course, is yours but is one that needs to be made before purchase.

Flow Rate

Every faucet made by Delta meets or exceeds all regulations for water usage. Part of these regulations is the flow rate. This is the number of gallons per minute (GPM) of water through the pipes. Current regulations nationwide are a maximum of 2.2GPM for kitchen, bath and laundry faucets and 7GPM for shower faucets.

If you are in California or Georgia, the maximum for kitchen and bath is 2.0 GPM (which will soon change to 1.8 in California). You can control the flow rate during a new install by installing smaller diameter pipes. However, if the pipes are already there, you can only control the flow rate so much.

Luckily, Delta faucets control this for you. Each faucet will list the flow rate on the packaging, so you know exactly what you are getting. Delta is also recognized by the EPA for water conservation.

Durability

Your purchase is one that will need to last a long time. Either new construction or a remodel, replacing the faucet isn't something you want to do regularly. Delta faucet parts are designed to last for as long as you own your faucet. This durability covers everything from the valves and cartridges to the screws that hold the handles in and the finish of the spout.

With scratch resistant finishes, simple maintenance and cleaning routines and minimal aftercare needed, Delta provides you with a reliable, durable, and functional faucet every time.

Mounting Style/Installation

One of the most important factors you will come across when purchasing a new faucet is how it will be mounted. If you are doing a remodel you may be reusing the same sink basin or countertop. If this is the case, you most likely have a deck mount faucet in place already. Removing this will expose the mounting holes where the faucet goes.

If you decide you want a wall mount faucet where a deck mount faucet was before, you will need to consider replacing the sink or counter (depending on where the old faucet was placed) or filling the holes to keep a clean aesthetic.

You will also need to determine how it is installed. A wall mount, for example, is a direct-to-manifold installation that requires no extra water lines. Deck mount faucets will have water lines from the valves to the inlets inside the handles. Knowing what your setup is or will be, will go a long way towards selecting the right faucet for your room.

Number of Holes Required

In keeping with the mounting and installation from above, you will also need to know how many holes are required for the mount. Most centerset and widespread faucets will need three holes. This will be a hole each for the hot and cold water lines and a third for the drain stop pull-lever.

In the kitchen, though, you may find that you need a fourth hole. This fourth hole will be for the sprayer if there is one. You may also find that you only need a single hole. One hole designs are generally made for touch and touchless models and some single handle faucets.

Before you make new holes in your countertops or sinks, you should first determine the number of holes needed for the particular faucet you have selected. If you haven’t first selected your faucet, you may want to do so before you drill.

Warranty

The final thing that should be on your faucet buying list is the warranty. Delta faucet warranties are among the best in the industry. Only American Standard and a few select others offer a similar guarantee.

If you purchase a Delta faucet for home or residential use, the warranty will protect your faucet for as long as you own the home. Once installed, the faucet, finish, handles and craftsmanship will all be under a lifetime warranty. For touch and touchless models, the battery will be under warranty for a full year.

For commercial applications, the warranty is five years for all products with the sole exception being the batteries (if applicable) which are still warrantied for a full year. You can view the full terms of the Delta faucet warranty on their website.



Special Features of Delta Faucets

Every brand has something unique to offer, and Delta has more than most. With their innovative technologies and technology-leading developments, it is no wonder Delta faucets are here to stay.

Touch2O

Touch2O technology is a new method of hands-free water delivery. Unlike other touch models, Delta touch faucets and Delta touchless faucets use what they have coined as Touch2O. This technology uses capacitance resistance to give you multiple control options.

You can use the handles (if applicable) or physically touch the faucet with your skin. You also have a third option, which is to put your bare skin close to the sensor area. You no longer need to be directly in front of a motion sensor or make physical contact to turn the water on or off.

SpotShield

SpotShield is a finishing technology that resists not only scratches and chips, but also fingerprints, water spots, and stains. It also has antimicrobial protection which lowers the instances of mold, mildew, odors, and bacterial growth. Your faucets will look clean and shiny even after repeated use.

Delta faucet dot com says “The technology resists water spots, fingerprints and stains since the antimicrobial protection of our SpotShield faucet finishes helps to prevent odor and stain causing bacterial and fungal growth on the surface of the faucet itself.”

ShieldSpray

Delta pull-down faucets come with a new technology called ShieldSpray. This is an innovative design that allows you to spray off dishes with an accurate and robust stream of water without worry of splashing or making a mess.

The power stream is strong enough to knock off the most stubborn dish stains while a soft curtain of water surrounds the spray to protect you and your counters against splashback.

Magnatite Docking

Delta pull out faucets and pull down faucets will stay firmly in place and return to their home without kinking or knocking into the mount thanks to MagnaTite Docking. This revolutionary feature uses strong magnets to guide the nozzle back into place and secure it firmly. Even if the sprayer slips out of your hand, it won’t bang back into place like some other brand models do.

Diamond Seal Technology

Delta even thinks of the things you cannot see. With Diamond Seal Technology (noted on packaging as DST), your faucet will have fewer leak points and be complete right form removal of the box.

DST uses diamonds to create a stronger, one piece supply lines and a faucet that will outlast the industry standard (500,000 cycles) by at least double.

Brilliance Finish

Delta uses a finishing process known as Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD). While they aren’t the only ones to do so, they were the first. With PVD, the finish is deeply embedded into the faucet’s metal surface. It is guaranteed to last a lifetime, prevent scratches, tarnishing, or corrosion.

Installation of Delta Faucets

Professional installation may be needed for your new faucet. If this is the case, you can expect to pay between approximately $150 and $350, according to Home Advisor. If you are having new construction or a complete remodel, this may be an option for you anyway as the price will most likely be included in the project as is.

If you plan to install a Delta faucet yourself, you will need to have the proper tools and time allotted to do so. This video will help you understand what you are getting into.


Delta Faucet Maintenance

Maintenance is relatively limited in most standard faucets. These are going to be more prominent in the newer model faucets as they have more parts, electronics and other features involved than a standard model will.

Beyond the problems that can sometimes occur with the newer technology, you should still have a regular maintenance routine. Keeping the faucet, base and handles clean will go a long way to keeping the faucet in proper working order. You should also inspect under the counter every month to ensure water lines, seals, and valves are dry and not leaking.


Common Faucet Issues and Problems

Because plumbing, lines, and moving water are involved, along with normal wear and tear, some issues will arise eventually. However, with a Delta Touch2O faucet, you may run into some more issues. Most commonly, the battery or AC adapter will be at the root of the problem, and proper diagnosis is required.

To help figure out what is wrong with the faucet, you should follow your weekly or monthly maintenance routine and inspect all of the parts yourself. If you are having issues and cannot figure out why it may be time to call in a professional.

If you have a Delta touchless faucet with Touch2O technology, this video will help you troubleshoot the most common issues.


Frequently Asked Questions

How do I contact Delta for assistance?

There are two ways to contact Delta regarding your Delta faucet: by phone or by website contact form. If you prefer to call, you can dial 1-800-345-3358. Or, if you like, you can visit the website and use the contact form found here.

How do I request faucet parts under warranty?

You can request faucet parts under warranty by phone or mail. To make your request by telephone, call 1-800-345-3358. To do so by mail, you can write (within the USA) to:

Delta Faucet Company
Product Service
55 E. 111th Street
Indianapolis, IN 46280

What are the proper flushing procedures for a new faucet?

After installation is complete, you will need to flush your new faucet to clear the lines of any build up that occurred due to having the water shut off. First, you should remove the aerator (if applicable), so that gunk and build up in the lines isn’t captured there causing a clog.

Then, turn the water valves on and open the handles to allow the water to flow. It will most likely be dark or discolored. Run the water until the water runs clear. Replace the aerator and run water through the faucet for another few minutes.

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

The price range for the faucets found in our review above is between $40 and $450. Depending on the type, style, and included functionality, you will pay an average of $180 for a lifetime warrantied Delta faucet.

Where is a good place to buy new Delta faucets and earlier parts?
