Frequently Asked Questions
How do I turn the faucet off and on?
You may choose to operate the faucet as you would any standard single-handle faucet by moving handle to the on and off positions. You may also tap it on and off with a deliberate touch, like that of a mouse click on your computer.
Does the faucet need to be plugged in to an outlet?
No. Touch2O® and Touch2O.xt™ Technology faucets are powered by batteries, which are included in the box. An optional A/C adapter (EP73954) is available for purchase should you want to connect the faucet to a grounded, 3 prong electrical outlet.
Are there any safety concerns for my family and I, mixing water with electronics?
Delta® faucets featuring Touch2O Technology use the same touch sensing technology commonly found in smart phones today. The system operates on 6AA or 6C batteries, which uses a low DC voltage. The optional A/C adapter (EP73954) electrically isolates the faucet from the household electrical wiring.
Will I need an electrician or plumber to install a faucet or soap dispenser featuring Touch2O products?
No. The installation process is just like installing a regular faucet with a few additional components. The faucet ships with 6 AA batteries and can be powered with 6 C batteries if you do not have a grounded outlet. An A/C adapter (EP73954) is available for purchase should you want to connect the faucet to a grounded, 3 prong electrical outlet. With Delta® DIAMOND™ Seal Technology, the integrated supply means everything you need is included in the box
If the faucet is left running or activated by my child or pet, will it stop automatically?
Should your Delta® Touch2O Technology faucet be activated accidentally, the faucet has an automatic shut-off feature that will stop the flow of water after four minutes of no activity.
Will the faucet turn on and off if I try to pivot the spout or adjust the temperature?
No. Delta® Touch2O Technology is a sophisticated technology that can distinguish the difference between a tap and grasp by measuring the duration of the contact with the faucet. Touches are defined as being less than 300 milliseconds, whereas grabs are more than 300 milliseconds.
