New Eljer® Bathroom and Kitchen Faucets Transform a Room; Install in Minutes
The new Livingston™ and Parkhurst™ Faucet Collections from Eljer combine popular style and function with unbelievably fast and easy installation
PISCATAWAY, N.J.(May 6, 2011) — Outdated baths and kitchens be forewarned: Change is just minutes away. The new Livingston™ and Parkhurst™ Faucet Collections from Eljer combine popular style and function with unbelievably fast and easy installation.
For the bathroom, the Livingston sink faucets feature Speed Connect®, the revolutionary and award-winning pre-assembled lavatory drain, as well as the innovative Quickspin™ Nuts, making it simple to install.
In the kitchen, the sleek contemporary styling of the Parkhurst Faucet Collection will make the heart of any home beat faster, marrying modern styling with a concealed dual-function hand spray.
Livingston Bathroom Faucet Collection
The Livingston Collection features the innovative Speed Connect drain, which can be installed in a fraction of the time because it requires just four parts. Conventional drains can have up to 14 different parts. The exclusive Speed Connect drain can be installed without special tools or even plumber’s putty. The drain seals tight the first time and every time, and the lift rod never comes loose or requires adjusting.
Once the Livingston faucet is mounted atop the sink, simply slide the innovative Quickspin Nuts fasteners up the faucet’s shank and secure with a final turn. Quickspin Nuts replace the repetitive, and sometimes awkward, spinning action with a simple gliding movement to decrease installation time and effort.
The Livingston Collection features a two-handle four-inch centerset lavatory faucet with ceramic disc valve construction that ensures a lifetime of smooth handle operation and drip-free performance, as well asa matching single-control tub/shower faucet that has a hot-limit safety stop to reduce scalding.
With a suggested retail price range of $80 - $100 for the centerset model and $110 - $130 for the tub/shower style, the Livingston faucets are available exclusively at Menards in both polished chrome and satin nickel finishes, all with a limited lifetime warranty.
Parkhurst Kitchen Faucet Collection
The Eljer Parkhurst single-control pullout kitchen faucet has a smart fresh profile with a concealed dual-function hand spray that easily toggles between the spray and stream functions at the touch of a button.
With a stylish swivel spout and single-lever convenience to control both temperature and flow rate, the Parkhurst kitchen faucet offers superior performance for a variety of kitchen tasks. Ceramic disc valve construction ensures a lifetime of smooth handle operation and drip-free performance.
With a suggested retail price range of $120 - $140, Parkhurst faucets are available exclusively at Menards in both polished chrome and stainless steel finishes, both with a limited lifetime warranty.
