INDIANAPOLIS, April 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Delta Faucet Company has been at
the forefront in research and design of touch and hands-free faucet
technologies in the home for more than a decade. Since 2008 when the Delta^®
brand introduced Touch[2]O^® Technology, the first faucet technology of its
kind, Delta Faucet has continued to enhance the way consumers interact with
their kitchen and bath faucets. In recognition of this five-year milestone,
Delta Faucet will celebrate its leadership in touch faucet technology at the
2013 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) in New Orleans, April 19-21.

The brand's booth (#2734) will showcase the wide breadth of Delta kitchen and
bath faucets with Touch[2]O and Touch[2]O.[xt]™ Technologies and features
promotional activities to commemorate the anniversary.

"As a global leader in kitchen and bath innovation, we've seen our Touch[2]O^®
and Touch[2]O.[xt]™ Technologies continue to grow in popularity among
consumers by improving their experience and helping to make their interactions
near the sink more convenient for the whole family," said Catherine Roper,
director of Delta^® brand management. "We're excited to celebrate this
important milestone at KBIS by inviting show attendees to connect with our
brand and learn more about what makes Delta touch technologies unique."

Delta Touch[2]O Technology is based on highly responsive, precise and reliable
capacitance sensing technology, similar to that found on smart phones, tablets
and other touch-activated devices. Unlike with infrared sensors, outside
factors such as lighting conditions, color and highly reflective objects do
not interfere with capacitance sensing capability.

Through its research, Delta Faucet found that while certain tasks may benefit
from hands-free functionality, the majority of people gravitate to the control
and responsiveness of touch activation in the kitchen. Touch[2]O Technology
affords consumers the ability to precisely control the activation of water
exactly when and where it's needed - even when hands are full or messy. With
Touch[2]O Technology, users can simply tap anywhere on the spout, hub or
handle of the faucet to turn the water stream on or off. Water temperature and
volumeare adjusted easily above the deck using the faucet handle.

In 2011, Touch[2]O Technology was introduced on lavatory faucets and was
expanded to include Touch[2]O.[xt] Technology, providing the option of
hands-free functionality in the bathroom, where proximity sensing was found to
be desired. Today, the Delta brand offers eight kitchen suites and three
bathroom suites featuring Touch[2]O Technology, as well as two bathroom suites
with Touch[2]O.[xt] Technology.

This year at KBIS, Delta Faucet will introduce extensions on two of its
collections featuring Touch[2]O Technology. New models include new pull-out
and waterfall configurations on its Cassidy™ kitchen suite and a pull-out
kitchen faucet on its modern Trinsic™ collection. Delta Faucet also is
expanding its selection of electronic lavatory faucets with the introduction
of optional hands-free and Touch[2]O Technology on its Dryden™ bath
