When you hear the name Kohler about a faucet, you know that this is a piece of quality and Kohler K-72218-VS Sensate faucet is of no difference. This high arc touchless faucet makes your kitchen the coolest one! Though it didn’t make a place in our best kitchen faucet review 2019, it deserves a place in your kitchen.
KOHLER K-72218-VS: Features
This Faucet comes in four different finish and all of them looks premium. It has a dimension of 10.4 x 3.8 x 15.5 inches. K-72218-VS provides a water flow of 1.8 GPM which makes your dishwashing easy. What I love most about this faucet is that the hose is not visible until I pull it out of the spout. Normally it looks like a solid faucet with no detachable part but on the contrary, it has a 26-inch hose hidden in the faucet for cleaning the sink.
The coolest thing about this faucet is its motion sensor with 20 millisecond response time which helps me to operate the faucet without touching it. I just wave under the arc and water starts flowing. Then when I need to stop the flow- just another hand wave makes the magic happen. It doesn’t matter what I got in hand, dishes or anything- just wave it and the faucet starts working right away. I just fall in love with this touchless effort.
This faucet uses Kohler’s proprietary DockNetik system which allows the spray head to dock with the spout by magnetic force. This is a lifesaver for the people who use the hose most of the time as it’s gonna be very annoying if the head isn’t properly docked. After using the hose retract back to its place without much pressure.
The motion sensor of K-72218-VS needs 6 AAA batteries or an AC power connection to work. The LED light on the bottom of the spout collet power from this too. The LED signals the water flow on/off.
It is a dock mount faucet. That means part of the faucet goes under the cabinet and about 9.5 inches stay over it. It is made to fit into a modern kitchen for everyday use. Its touchless technology helps it to look like a new faucet for a long time.
There is an excellent looking metal handle in the bottom of the faucet which let you adjust the water temperature. It is possible to adjust the temperature while the water flow is on or off.
