TORONTO, ON - Introduced in early 2010 as a companion to the Pilar® Pull-Down kitchen faucet with Touch2O® Technology, the high-arc the Pilar® Waterfall® kitchen faucet has a stylish lever handle and 180˚ swing spout. The newest option of the Pilar® Waterfall kitchen faucet now features Touch2O® Technology. 

The series is inspired by a fusion of technology and nature and is designed for consumers who are looking for a smarter, cleaner and more efficient way to work in their kitchen.  "With a simple tap on the handle or spout, the consumer can easily turn the faucet on or off between tasks, helping to conserve water.  Also, while the faucet flows at the industry standard 2.2 gpm, an optional 1.5 gpm aerator is available for consumers looking to make their kitchen faucet even more water-efficient," said Anita Griffin, Canadian marketing brand manager for Delta Faucet.

The Pilar Waterfall faucet exemplifies the trend toward "soft contemporary" design, which is influenced by clean, smooth lines that are organically inspired.  The spout's arc is based on the golden mean, a mathematical ratio found in nature and used in architecture.  The soft contemporary styling is popular among consumers because of its versatility; the Pilar in Chrome makes an urban, contemporary statement, whereas the same faucet in Venetian Bronze® has a more old-world look.


 

Smart features of the series include:

Touch2O® Technology

The Pilar faucet operates manually as well as with Touch2O® functionality, while the handle adjusts flow rate and temperature. A blue LED light indicates when Touch2O® Technology is engaged, and turns red when the batteries need to be replaced.

Front Trigger Sprayer and Touch-Clean® Technology

The front trigger on the sprayer allows users to more easily activate the sprayer while holding it comfortably in their hand, and, thanks to Touch-Clean® Technology, the homeowner can easily wipe away calcium and lime build-up on the soft rubber spray holes of the front trigger sprayer with the touch of a finger. 

DIAMOND® Seal Technology

Pilar also features Delta Faucet's patented DIAMOND® Seal Technology, a breakthrough faucet innovation that is comprised of a diamond-coated valve and one-piece InnoFlex® waterways. The DIAMOND Valve has been tested to last up to 10 times longer than the industry standard* and ensures "like new" operation for life.

The InnoFlex waterways eliminate potential leak points and are less hassle to install. All the parts needed for installation are in the box. InnoFlex waterways connect directly onto hot and cold water shut off valves, so there are no additional supply lines or connections to purchase.

High-Arc Spout

Pilar's sleek, high-arc spout swivels 180º for greater functionality in the kitchen, providing ample clearance for large items such as pots and pans.  The faucet spout also has a hidden cache aerator, which gives the spout a sleek look.  

Availability

Pilar Waterfall kitchen faucet with Touch2O® Technology will be available starting in August 2010. It is offered in chrome, Brilliance® stainless, and Venetian Bronze® finishes with a coordinating prep faucet and soap dispenser.  A five-year warranty covers the faucet, finish and electronics. 

*Industry standard is based on ASME 112.18.1 = 500,000 cycles
