Delta Touch2O.xt Review

Delta 751T-RB-DST Dryden Venetian Bronze
Delta 751T-RB-DST Dryden Venetian Bronze

by Cliff Kimber

The Delta Faucet Company has a new product on the market that exemplifies everything you could want in a faucet. Unlike traditional faucets that limit you to a simple handle or two for turning on and off water flow, Delta’s Touch2O.xt faucets give you three different options to start and stop the water flow. The original Touch2O faucets Delta introduced in 2008 utilize technology similar to that found on smartphones. This feature efficiently delivers precise, responsive control with a touch to the spout or handle.

Delta was the first on the market to bring this type of faucet to the home, and they have been leading the way in research and design of touch and hands-free faucets ever since. These Touch2O Faucets continue to grow in popularity because they make working around the sink so much more convenient. Keeping faucets clean even when hands are dirty is just one of those improvements.

Offering Help to Oklahoma Tornado Victims

After suffering $2 billion in damage, the devastated regions of Oklahoma were in need of help rebuilding their communities. With corporate headquarters in Utah, it was difficult for PlumbersStock to offer any direct help. We were able to brainstorm and come up with one way to lend a hand.  Residents of the affected regions have been forced to repair and even rebuild their damaged homes and places of business. We carry a lot of the products they need to accomplish this, so to help, we offered 20% discounts across the board to those who suffered. PlumbersStock is proud to do what we can to aid our neighbors to the east and are glad that it was helpful to the individuals who took advantage of the promotion. We are pleased to have taken a small part in helping to rebuild the great Sooner state

scholarship contest
You’re in luck because this is not an essay contest. Make a how-to video to show prospective employers and make yourself stand out.

PlumbersStock has designed this scholarship with the intent that all participants can gain from the experience.  It will be a great resume-builder for anybody studying a professional trade.  Participants must produce a “how-to” video tutorial that must be topically related to home improvement projects and tasks.  PlumbersStock CEO Mike Green said, “Producing a video gives the student something to show prospective employers, allowing the student to stand out in his/her job search.  We thought a great deal about creating a program that would benefit all participants, which is what we came up with.”
