New Single Handle Bathroom Faucets Deliver Water Saving Performance with Stylish Functionality

Sep 24, 2013

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (September 24, 2013) ― With unique, architectural shapes and smart features that help make daily tasks more convenient, the new Tropic and Princeton single handle faucets from American Standard are a welcome addition to any bathroom.

Tropic Single Control Faucet

The Tropic faucet model includes a unique pull-out spout that makes common tasks simpler than ever. Wash your hair in the bathroom sink, fill a flower vase or bucket with water, or handily rinse down the sink for a quick cleanup. Plus, this pull-out bathroom faucet features a flexible, stainless steel hose that extends up to 24 inches.

The Tropic pull-out faucet features casual design, highlighted with distinctive shapes and attractive curves, sure to complement most bathroom styling. For easy decorating, this Tropic faucet is design matched with the complete Tropic collection of bathroom faucets and tub/shower trim kit. It is available in a choice of polished chrome or satin nickel finishes.

Princeton Single Control Faucet

Offering refined, sculptural good looks, the Princeton single control bath faucet is well-suited for traditional décor. It is design matched with the complete Princeton collection of widespread and centerset faucets for the bathroom, as well as a corresponding tub/shower trim kit.

The Princeton one handle faucet is available in a choice of three durable finishes: polished chrome, satin nickel, and oil rubbed bronze.

Smart Features, Reliable Performance

Both single control bathroom faucets offer convenient, one handle control of both water temperature and volume. A 120-degree handle rotation provides for a wider range of fine temperature tuning. A temperature memory setting allows the user to turn off the flow of water in any position and turn it back on at the same temperature.

Engineered for fast and easy installation, these new Tropic and Princeton bathroom sink faucets incorporate the American Standard exclusive pre-assembled Speed Connect drain with only four parts, instead of the 14 different parts used with conventional drains. This innovative system simplifies drain installation and never needs adjusting. The drain seals tightly so water stays in the sink, and the lift rod comes set to correct height and never works loose.

Both new faucets, like their corresponding collections, have a water efficient 1.5 gallons per minute (gpm) flow rate. Incorporating pressure-compensating aerators that provide 32 percent water savings over standard faucet models, they are WaterSense-certified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for delivering water savings without sacrificing performance.

Durable metal faucet bodies and washerless ceramic disc valves offer a lifetime of worry-free, drip-free performance. An optional 4-inch deck plate is also included, so both faucets can be installed on sinks designed for either single handle or centerset faucets.

Like all American Standard bath faucets, both the Tropic and Princeton faucets comply with all lead-free standards for plumbing fixtures, as defined by federal and state law.
