Delta's Kitchen Faucet with Touch2O Technology Earns the Brand its Second Parent Tested, Parent Approved Seal of Approval

Touch2O technology helps keep your kitchen faucet clean, even when your hands aren't

TORONTO, Jan. 18, 2013 /CNW/ - Delta Faucet Canada is pleased to announce that the Delta Pilar kitchen faucet with Touch2O Technology has been awarded the Parent Tested, Parent Approved (PTPA) Winner's Seal of Approval. This is a second win for the brand as their Delta Addison bathroom faucet with Touch20.xt Technology was awarded in 2012.

A recent survey commissioned by Delta and conducted by Harris/Decima found that one in four Canadians (27 per cent) leave the water running while washing and rinsing dishes.  Delta's Touch2O Technology for the kitchen allows for ease-of-use and can help you conserve water. Tap anywhere on the spout or handle with your wrist or forearm to start and stop the flow of water. A sleek and stylish focal point, a Delta faucet can also assist in saving money on your monthly water bill. It's easy, intuitive and a great way to improve kitchen work flow.

Touch2O technology also helps keep the faucet clean, even when your hands aren't. This intuitive feature also makes it easy and fun for kids to wash their hands or help out in the kitchen all while conserving water.

The same survey conducted with Harris/Decima polled Canadians on what small appliance they used most frequently in the kitchen. When presented with a list of common kitchen appliances and asked which they used most often in an average day, the faucet came out on top.

"We are thrilled that Canadians across North America put our technology to the test and found it helpful in their busy day-to-day lives," says Anita Griffin, Canadian Director of Marketing Communications for Delta Faucet. "Our intuitive technology is especially family-friendly because it makes kitchen clean up fun for kids and easy for parents."

The Delta Touch2O kitchen faucet was tested and given the seal of approval by unbiased volunteer families in their homes and was rated the Most Trusted Seal by 22,000 parents.
