Product Overview

This attractive Moen touchless faucet comes equipped with two different sensors. The first is the motion sense which allows you to turn the water on and off by just using your hand. The second is the ready sensor. The redder sensor detects all objects like a cup or a large pot. This makes it easy for you to fill something large without having to worry about a free hand.

This system is meant to be installed in a 4-hole mount, with one hole dedicated for a soap dispenser. The faucet itself can be mounted into a single or a three-hole system with the included escutcheon covering the unused holes. The faucet measures 15-1/2 inches from deck to the top of the spigot while the spray outlet is 8-1/4 inches from the deck. The spray outlet is 7-7/8 inches from the base.

The control box is meant to be mounted underneath the sink and should be mounted on one of the side walls for easy access. It measures 5-1/8 inches by 6-1/4 inches and should have at least 34 inches of clearance at the bottom to allow for easy access and repair. The battery box is 5 inches by 2-5/8 inches and can be mounted within 36 inches of the control box thanks to the lengthy battery holder cable. Also available is an AC adapter with a power splitter if you so choose.

This is a single handle faucet with a lever style handle. It takes less than 5 pounds of Force to manipulate the handle and the temperature is controlled by 100 degrees of arc. The spout is able to rotate 100 degrees from side to side. Additionally, if you are using the spray to fill a container outside of the sink, when the you pass the nozzle over the counter, you can pause it so the water will stop flowing without having to turn the faucet off.

This faucet has a spot resistant stainless finish which can easily be wiped clean with a damp cloth. Additionally it is covered by Moen’s Lifetime limited warranty. Should the faucet begin to drip or leak while the original purchaser is in their home, Moen will supply the parts necessary to repair it back to original operation. Additionally the finish is warrantied against failure for the lifetime of the product as well.

5 Things to Consider When Shopping For Kitchen Faucets

Shopping for a new kitchen faucet can be an aggravating experience, but it doesn’t have to be. While there are many different features and options for them, there are a few that should be considered essential. Here are five of the first things you should be considering when looking for your next faucet.

  1. Number of Handles – the new rage is for faucets to have single handles. However, you may decide that you prefer a traditional two-handled faucet. They are still available so make sure that you get what you like.
  2. Mounting Holes – the number of mounting holes in your existing sink will determine what faucet you can get. These range from a single hole to four-hole mounting systems. With two-hole and four-hole systems, one of the holes is reserved for a soap dispenser.
  3. Spray Nozzle Features – spray nozzle technology has advanced far beyond just the simple push to activate system. Now you can have sprayers with multiple types of spray, different docking features to make sure that the sprayer doesn’t come loose, different hose lengths, and even different hose types. Take a look at what is available, and if you can, try them out in a showroom before making a final purchase decision.
  4. Touchless or Standard – While it may seem like a sure thing to go with touchless, this is a decision that should be considered just as carefully as the others. A touchless faucet is more convenient, but it also has more parts that can go wrong. This decision should mainly reflect how comfortable you are with troubleshooting something like this or if you are willing to call a plumber when you need to.
  5. Warranty – all of the major faucet manufacturers should have a lifetime limited warranty that covers the faucet against drips and leaks. Most of them also cover the finish, so if it starts to fade, then you can get it replaced. However, if you are planning to install this in a business be aware that the warranties do change, and usually only last 5 years. You should always know what your warranty covers and whether it covers labor or not (most don’t). If you get a touchless faucet, know how the warranty treats the electronics.
