This commercial faucet comes to you from Danze. Danze produces a wide range of high quality commercial faucets that are enjoyed by homeowners worldwide. This Parma faucet offers a spring pulldown sprayer that doubles as a spigot. The sprayer has two different functions: a stream spray and an aerated stream. The aerated stream is meant for everyday use such as washing dishes or your hands. The stream spray is better for cleaning dishes before washing or perhaps for washing off produce.
The faucet is available in two different finishes: chrome and stainless steel. It has a flowrate of 2.2 gallons per minute, which means that it Is not in compliance with some water efficiency regulations. However, the 2.2 gpm flowrate does provide excellent cleaning power and superlative filling ability. This is a spring pulldown, so the spray head does not separate from the rest of the faucet. Instead, the spring flexes to allow the spray head to pull and shift about six inches.

There is a single handle to control the temperature and intensity of spray. Pull the handle towards you to increase the temperature and increase the spray volume by pulling it to the side away from the base. The mechanism is a ceramic disc valve. These components are standard across all Danze faucets, and provide a lifetime of leak-free service.
This faucet has a total height of 22-13/16 inches from the mounting deck, while the spout is 6-5/8 inches from the deck. The spout reach is 10 inches, measured from the center of the faucet body to the outlet. This faucet is meant to be installed into a single-hole mounting system. You can purchase an escutcheon if you need to convert a three-hole system to a single-hole.
Danze offers a limited lifetime warranty that covers the faucet as long as the purchase owns it. This covers the finish as well as the ceramic disc valve. However, abrasive cleaners and harsh chemicals will dull the finish and void the warranty. The warranty does not include labor or shipping. For industrial or commercial users, the warranty period drops to five years.
Four Faucet Features to Pay Attention To
When shopping for a new faucet, it’s easy to get lost in all the myriad features available to you. Let us help you drill down to the four most essential features that you should be paying attention to.
- What Type of Sink You Have – Remember that your faucet has to mount somewhere. If you’re upgrading or replacing your existing faucet, your kitchen sink will already have mounting holes in it. Look to see how many there are. If there’s an escutcheon or mounting plate, look underneath to see the number of holes. Faucets come in models from one to four-hole mounting systems. In general, you can convert down, like from a three-hole sink to a one-hole faucet, but not up; at least not without drilling a new hole.
- Check your Water Lines – You need to make sure that your new faucet will fit your existing plumbing. Older plumbing will have 1/2-inch water lines. When water conservation regulations started being created, limiting the flowrate for faucets, the lines changed. They got smaller, and new faucets are now designed with 3/8-inch water lines. If you do have 1/2-inch lines, you’ll need to convert your plumbing to the correct size. You can do this by replacing the valves entirely, or you can use a pipe connector that reduces the line size. The best way is to do a full valve replacement.
- Faucet Size – Let’s just say that you should definitely be looking at an arc faucet. These have an arch from the mounting point to the spout. Things to consider with the faucet size are the height and reach of the spout. Height is the clearance of the spout from the mounting deck to the spout. You want a spout that is high enough to let you fill a pot without having to do some intricate maneuvering. The reach of the spout is how far it is from the centerline of the faucet base. You want a faucet to have a reach so the spout’s flow reaches about the middle of the sink. If it’s too close to the back, then you can run into splashing that goes everywhere. If the spout is too far forward, it can cause a problem when putting dishes in the sink.
