Lowe's Introduces New Faucets with Hassle-Free Installation and Performance that Lasts a Lifetime
Bath Faucets and Select Kitchen Faucets from American Standard with Simple No-Tools Installation System, Save Water without Sacrificing Performance, Now Available at Lowe's
PISCATAWAY, N.J. (December 20, 2011) — More than two dozen new stylish, high-performing bathroom faucets and select kitchen faucets featuring industry-leading technology from American Standard are now available at Lowe’s stores nationwide.
American Standard® water-saving fixtures offer homeowners and remodelers a variety of today’s most popular features, including drip-free ceramic disc valves and the exclusive No-Tools Speed Connect® System, in the widest array of styles and profiles in the industry.
Engineered for fast and easy installation, American Standard bathroom and kitchen faucets have innovative Speed Connect nuts that can be hand-tightened without tools.
The Speed Connect hoses on the widespread bathroom faucets easily snap together for a secure water-tight connection, while pre-assembled Speed Connect drains on bathroom faucets have only four parts, instead of up to 14. For installation, simply hand-connect and tighten the flexible pop-up cable to the drain. Speed Connect drains on bathroom faucets never get out of alignment and never need adjusting.
Water Savings without the Sacrifice
All American Standard bathroom faucets incorporate pressure-compensating aerators that provide 32 percent water savings over standard models and are WaterSense®-certified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), ensuring water savings without sacrificing performance. According to EPA estimates, the average U.S. household can save over 500 gallons of water annually by installing WaterSense-certified faucets.
Style That Works Better
American Standard kitchen and bathroom faucets marry top performance with innovative style that simplifies everyday tasks such as washing hands, rinsing pasta, or filling pots. With a wide range of style choices, it’s easy to find a faucet to match the décor of just about any kitchen.
Meanwhile, lavatory faucets are created to complement design-matched tub fillers and bath/showers systems. Available finishes include polished chrome, satin nickel, stainless steel, and estate bronze, depending on faucet style.
Like all American Standard faucets, these kitchen and bathroom fixtures are worry-free, drip-free and built to last. Every faucet is covered by a limited lifetime warranty on both function and finish. For more information, visit www.americanstandard.com or www.lowes.com.
