Product Overview

The Moen 7430 Chateau One-Handle Low-Arc Kitchen Faucet is a traditionally styled faucet that has a single handle for temperature control and a separate sprayer for added cleaning power. It is designed to be installed into a two-hole or four-hole configured sink as it needs connections for both the sprayer and the main faucet.

The benefit of having the sprayer as a separate part of the faucet is that you can run both a steady flow of water from the faucet and a high-powered cleaning stream of water for the sprayer for maximized cleaning potential. You will enjoy the convenience of this system. It has a single handle for controlling the flow and temperature which includes a visual heat guide to help prevent accidental hot water scalds and burns.

It is made in a versatile high shine chrome finish. Chrome appliances are highly reflective, as reflective as a mirror, and have a clean modern appearance. This faucet can be appropriately integrated into any style kitchen from traditional to modern decor. The handle is very easy to use and complies with the standards set by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) for kitchen faucets.

Water Efficient

Moen is committed to working with WaterSense and the EPA to encourage environmentally sound practices in our homes. The gallons per minute on this faucet is limited to save water naturally without any effort from you. Harvesting groundwater can disturb ecosystems and have negative effects on the environment. Saving water is important in preserving the environment for generations to come.

  • Wasting water can hurt the environment.
  • This model uses less water than other faucets.

Lifetime Limited Warranty

Like all other Moen faucets, the Chateau faucet is backed by Moen’s lifetime performance guarantee. This lifetime limited warranty covers a variety of potential losses such as parts defects or defects in the finish. Moen is a reputable company that engineers their products to last. Each of their kitchen faucets is guaranteed excellent performance for a lifetime.

  • Parts defects and finish defects are covered by the warranty.
  • A lifetime of leak-free performance.
  • Buy with peace of mind with the lifetime extended warranty (free from the manufacturer).

Dual Water Flow

Being able to use the faucet and the sprayer at the same time can help maximize your cleaning efforts. When the faucet has the sprayer built into the same wand, it limits the capacity for dual functions. With this model, you can use one flow of water to fill the sink while using the sprayer to clean off dishes, etc.

  • The sprayer is built-in separately.
  • Spray and rinse at the same time.
  • Two people can use the sink at once.


No Hands-Free Function

Hands-free faucets are preferable because they help prevent the spread of germs as well as making it more convenient to use. Hands-free faucets use motion detectors to automatically start and stop the flow of water. If you or someone in your family has extremely limited hand mobility a kitchen faucet with sensors may be a better option. However, motion-detecting kitchen faucets are more expensive than traditional faucets.

  • Hands-free faucets prevent the spread of germs.
  • Motion sensor faucets are more expensive than traditional faucets.
  • Hands-free faucets are great for those with limited mobility.
