Touchless Kitchen Faucet Temperature Control
To adjust the temperature on a touchless kitchen faucet, pull the handle forward for cold water and backward for hot water, or rotate the lever clockwise for lower temperature and counterclockwise for higher temperature. Some touchless faucets have a mixing valve under the sink for adjusting the temperature or an app to set temperature preferences and use hand gestures to control hot and cold water.
This technology adds a touch of high-tech convenience to the kitchen and eliminates the need to reach over boiling pots or touch dirty faucets. With touchless temperature control, setting the perfect water temperature has never been easier.

Delta Kitchen Sink Faucet Temperature Adjustment
To get the perfect temperature with a Delta kitchen touchless faucet, you have several options to choose from. The first is to manually adjust the handle until you find the temperature that feels just right.
Another option is to use the adjustment spindle located inside the handle of your faucet to set the maximum temperature. If you want to make finer adjustments, there’s a small plastic nub that can be turned by hand or with pliers to tweak the hot or cold mixture.
Additionally, some Delta faucets come with a temperature adjustment ring that you can rotate clockwise to increase the water temperature.
Finally, if you need to make a quick adjustment, you can simply turn the hot water screw counterclockwise or the cold water screw clockwise to increase the water temperature.
