Delta teams up with HGTV Dream Home

INDIANAPOLIS, October 24, 2008 – Delta® brand announced that it will be the exclusive plumbing sponsor of the 2009 HGTV Dream Home. The three-bedroom, 3,600-square-foot classic wine country farmhouse in Sonoma, CA will belong to one lucky winner when the sweepstakes concludes in February of next year.

Located in the heart of California wine country, the farmhouse combines Victorian-style with historic splendor and modern day luxury. Kitchen, bath and laundry fixtures are classical in style, with up-to-date technology befitting the home.

The Delta/HGTV Dream Home partnership is particularly timely as the 2009 home is situated in California, which recently introduced the nation’s strictest lead-free faucet law. California statue AB 1953 mandates that by January 1, 2010, the weighted average lead content in pipes, fittings and fixtures used to convey drinking water cannot exceed 0.25% lead on wetted surfaces. Delta Faucet Company’s exclusive patented DIAMOND™ Seal Technology, an innovative faucet breakthrough that was in development for seven years, meets this exacting standard and keeps water as pure as it enters the faucet.


In the gourmet kitchen, the award-winning Victorian® single-handle pull-down faucet by Delta will take center stage in Brilliance® Stainless finish. The popular faucet is among the first to feature DIAMOND™ Seal Technology. Comprised of a next generation DIAMOND™ valve and InnoFlex™ waterways, the one-piece construction ensures that once inside the faucet, water is not in contact with potential metal contaminants.

DIAMOND Seal Technology also features a ceramic disc with a tough, diamond coating so the faucet valve lasts up to 5 million uses.

In addition, the faucet sports a high-arc spout and traditional influences with a matching soap dispenser. The spray head is designed with an ergonomic, two-function toggle control and an innovative MagnaTite™ magnetic docking system by Delta. Its powerful magnet built right into the spray-head intuitively connects the head with the spout when not in use to prevent dangling for a consistently clean look.


The master bath will feature twin two-handle Victorian widespread lavatory faucets in Brilliance Stainless finish. A matching roman tub faucet, raincan showerhead, towel bars, robe hooks and tissue holder complete the master bath.

The powder room also will receive a Victorian two-handle mini widespread lavatory, but in a warm Venetian Bronze finish. A coordinating tank lever, tissue holder and towel bar round out the accessories.

Highlighting both the children’s bath and the guest bath is the traditional Lockwood™ widespread bath faucet by Delta in Chrome and Aged Pewter finishes, with matching towel bars, robe hooks and tissue holders.

All Delta lavatory faucets provided in the home are Water Sense certified, giving the homeowner assurance that the bath faucets (which flow at 1.5 gpm at 60 psi ) are up to 32%* more water-efficient than their standard-flow 2.2 gpm counterparts.

*Water Efficient Product – Flow Rate of 1.5 gpm versus Industry Standard ASME.A112.18.1/CSA.B125.1 of 2.2 gpm.


Rounding out the Dream Home donation in the home is a Victorian two-handle faucet with spray in Brilliance Stainless for the laundry.
