New SAVER™ from American Standard Is First “No-Tools” Toilet for Easy Installation
Simple-to-Install High Efficiency Toilet Yields Space, Water and Time Savings
PISCATAWAY, N.J.(April 19, 2011) — Look, Ma, no tools! The new SAVER™ toilets from American Standard are marvels of engineering, designed to be installed with simple hand-tightening. No wrenches needed to tighten nuts, no sawing-off long bolts, and no getting caught short mid-installation without the right tools.
Everything needed to install a SAVER toilet with seat is right in the box, including simple, illustrative step-by-step instructions that even a novice can understand.
“Even someone who has never installed a toilet can install a high performance, great flushing American Standard® toilet with confidence,” said James Walsh, vice president and general manager, consumer fixtures.
Available in both one- and two-piece models, the SAVER fits elongated comfort into a standard space, allowing small bathrooms to offer full-size comfort. SAVER toilets have the American Standard EverClean® permanent surface that inhibits the growth of stain and odor causing bacteria, mold and mildew on the surface.
The SAVER is available in a 1.28 gallons per flush (gpf)WaterSense®-certified high efficiency model, which uses 20 percent less water than standard toilets without sacrificing flushing performance.
Available exclusively at Lowe’s, new SAVER elongated toilets are available in 1-piece Right Height® and 2-piece Right Height, as well as normal height bowl configurations. Right Height designs meet all ADA requirements for accessibility. Suggested retail prices start at $159.
