You had me at first tap.

I fell in love with Pilar.

What is so special about her, you ask?
She is very smart.
Don’t pass her by without a second look. Her beauty comes from within.
An absolute innovator in knowing how to save energy and water.
She knows how to handle messy situations in a snap.
She is sensitive to those with special needs.
So intuitive, she knows what I need.
Talk about smart? She has turned her love of diamonds into a technology, envied by all.
And, her magnetic personality will never let you down.

“She’s-a-beautiful”, (repeat and must say with an Italian accent for emphasis)

Yes, a faucet!
Men are always referring to their sports cars using the pronoun, “she”, so why not show the same reverence for a beautifully designed faucet that is smart as a whip. An affordable electronic faucet with incredibly smart features at an attractive price. Unrivaled at this price point.

Pilar Smart Faucet Facts:

  • Specs: 10 5/8″ reach and a 54″ long hose makes this faucet an excellent option for larger sinks. 13 7/8″ high swing spout.
  • 2 or 3 hole sink applications.
  • Pull down wand operates in an aerated or spray mode via a two function toggle control.
  • Flow Rate: 2.2 gpm.
  • One-piece InnoFlex® waterways with PEX-C tubing make DIAMOND Seal Technology faucets simple to install.
  • ADA compliant. Users with special needs will find the Touch2O™ Technology very easy to use and compliant with the American Disabilities Act.
  • Diamond Seal Technology. Delta’s exclusive DIAMOND Seal Technology uses a valve with a tough diamond coating to bring you a faucet built to last up to 5 million uses – plus it keeps water inside the faucet out of contact with potential metal contaminants. Leak free, longer lasting, lead free, and less hassle.
  • Touch2O™ Technology. The intuitive tap technology enables you to turn the faucet on and off with just a touch — anywhere on the faucet’s body or handle.
    So, when hands are messy during meal prep or clean-up, Touch2O™ Technology helps reduce the spread of germs and bacteria — simply touch the faucet body with your wrist or forearm.
    Touch2O™ Technology can also help you conserve water. As you prepare food or wash up in the sink, just tap the Touch2O™ faucet to keep water from running when you don’t need it. Then just touch it again to start the water flowing again.
  • MagnaTite™ docking keeps the kitchen pull-down spray wand firmly in place with a powerful integrated magnet, so it stays docked when not in use.
    The pull-down spray wand comes free with a gentle tug and gives you total flexibility. The hose extends and retracts without friction points, fed by gravity. The toggle button on most wands featuring MagnaTite allows you to switch between aerated spray and stream modes.
    As you raise the wand to dock it, the magnet embedded in the spout pulls the wand precisely into place. So unlike other pull-downs that tend to droop over time, MagnaTite keeps your pull-down faucet looking picture perfect.
  • Touch-Clean® soft, rubber nubbins that allow you to easily wipe away calcium and lime build-up with the touch of a finger.
54″ hose for greater reach for tall vases or stock pots.

Two function toggle means hands free aerated spray mode.
Pilar understands the difference between a touch and a grasp.

Reduce the spread of cross contamination of germs or bacteria with Smart Touch2O™.
Leak free, longer lasting, lead free, and less hassle.
Once inside the faucet, water is not in contact with potential metal contaminants.
Pilar works well in a traditional or contemporary space.
