PISCATAWAY, N.J.(April 11, 2012) — Attractive new high-performing bathroom faucets featuring industry-leading technology from American Standard are now available nationwide at The Home Depot.
The new Marquette™ bath collection, with its refined contemporary styling, includes widespread and centerset pieces in both mid and high spout versions, a J-spout centerset and a single handle shower faucet. The new España™ single-control bathroom faucet features the distinctive Estate Bronze™ finish, while the sleek Alejandra™ centerset is offered in a tarnish, scratch and corrosion resistant polished chrome finish.
These American Standard® water-saving fixtures offer homeowners and remodelers superior performance, thanks to special features including washerless ceramic disc valves and the exclusive no-tools Speed Connect® system, in the widest array of styles and profiles in the industry.
Easy, Fast Installation
The pre-assembled Speed Connect drains on bathroom faucets have only four parts, instead of the 14 different parts used with conventional drains. For installation, simply hand-connect and tighten the flexible pop-up cable to the drain. Even better: the drain seals tight the first time and every time, and the lift rod never comes loose or requires adjusting. These Speed Connect drains never get out of alignment and never need adjusting.
Engineered for fast and easy installation, American Standard bathroom faucets have innovative Speed Connect nuts that can be hand-tightened without tools. Plus, the Speed Connect hoses on the widespread bathroom faucets easily snap together for a secure water-tight connection.
Water Savings without 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 more than 500 gallons of water each year by installing WaterSense-certified faucets.
All American Standard bath faucets and showerheads are equipped with washerless ceramic disc valves for a lifetime of water-saving, drip-free performance.
Style That Works Better
Meanwhile, American Standard bathroom 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. With a wide range of style choices and attractive finishes, it’s easy to find a faucet to match the décor of just about any bathroom.
Like all American Standard faucets, these 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.homedepot.com.
