Delta(a company which was founded in 1954) is one of the most trusted companies you will ever find. For many years, the company has been producing products for both bathroom and kitchen. Keeping up with the modern technology, the company has produced Delta Faucet 9178-AR-DST Leland Single Handle Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet. Made in USA, Stylish, cutting edge and convenient- these words can perfectly describe this product.
Technology- We already know some of these features like, “Touch-Clean spray holes”, “MagnaTite Docking system”, “Diamond Seal Technology”. The awesome “Delta DIAMOND Seal” technology uses a tough, diamond-coated valve to put an end to leaks and the faucet lasts for a very long time. One of the great things about the spray wand is that it features MagnaTite Docking. It means that it will stay docked when you are not using it. So unlike other pull-downs that tend to droop over time, MagnaTite keeps your pull-down faucet looking picture perfect. An integrated magnet makes sure that the wand stays docked when you don’t use it. Over time it will protect your faucet against drooping which is a common issue with pull-down faucets.
Installation– But let’s not also forget about its “Duramount mounting system”(for easy installation). Duramount mounting system makes it very easy to install and “Innoflex PEX one-piece supply lines”(to get rid of leaks). The faucet also includes “InnoFlex PEX supply lines”. It keeps water inside the faucet out of contact with metal contaminants. Furthermore, let’s not also forget that the one-piece construction of InnoFlex PEX waterways removes joints and seals. So, you can pretty much guess that leakage will never bother you if you buy this faucet. But it’s not over yet.
