INDIANAPOLIS - With soft, graceful lines, the Talo® pull-down kitchen faucet with optional SmartTouch® Technology from the Brizo® brand takes its design cues from nature. But beneath that elegant surface lies cutting-edge faucet technology, making the Talo faucet a beautiful pairing of style and innovation.
Taken from the Italian word petalo, meaning "petal," Talo's high-rise profile and soft contours bring an organic beauty to the kitchen. But, the Talo faucet also contains several intuitive features that provide unmatched user experience. Users will first notice the two-button/four-function pull-down wand. The patented wand puts spray, stream, volume control and pause functions at the user's fingertips, making kitchen tasks easier.
The Brizo brand's amazing SmartTouch technology is available on Talo kitchen faucets. "SmartTouch makes turning the faucet on and off as easy as simply tapping or touching the faucet anywhere on the spout or handle," said Brian Jones, Brizo brand product manager. "It's really the ultimate in convenience, as it streamlines food prep and clean-up and saves water in the process." Traditional, manually operated Talo faucets are also available.
Talo also features the Brizo brand's MagneDock® magnetic docking technology. Utilizing a powerful magnet to securely lock the wand into the faucet spout, MagneDock makes the wand extremely easy to engage and disengage and allows Talo to maintain its sweeping, artful form and seamless appearance when the wand is docked.
The Euro-motion Diamond® valve, for the single handle model, uses a smooth layer of diamond embedded onto a ceramic disc to ensure "like new" operation for life. The DIAMOND valve will last up to 5 million cycles - which is up to 10 times longer than the industry standard. Once inside the faucet, water does not come in contact with potential metal contaminants, meeting current state specific and upcoming national legislation.
The Talo collection includes a complete offering of coordinating kitchen and bar prep faucets and accessories, including soap dispenser, bud vases and dish cloth butlers. The faucets are offered with or without SmartTouch technology and are available in Polished Chrome, Brilliance® Stainless, Venetian Bronze®, and Brilliance® Brushed Bronze.
 California Health and Safety Code 116875 (AB 1953) and Vermont Law No. 193 (S152) and upcoming national legislation mandate that the weighted average lead content in pipes, fittings and fixtures used to convey drinking water cannot exceed 0.25% on wetted surfaces.
