E-Tronic Solenoids

E-tronic Faucets have been around for many years. Chicago Faucets has updated its components over time. In particular, the most important part of the faucet has been improved: the solenoid. Because of these updates, there are two different solenoid models, and three different solenoid replacement instructions for faucets bought during certain time periods. We’ve made the chart below to help our customers know which solenoid is the right one for their units, and how to remove and replace it.
