American Standard rolls out new faucets
High-performing bathroom faucets American Standard are now available nationwide at The Home Depot in the Marquette, Espana and Alejandra collections.
The products’ water-saving fixtures include washerless ceramic disc valves and the exclusive no-tools Speed Connect system.
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.
The new Marquette bath collection 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.
The collections are currently sold at Home Depot.
