AVAILABLE AT MENARDS, MOEN'S NEW LANCASTER™ ECO-PERFORMANCE FAUCET OFFERS WATER SAVINGS IN THE KITCHEN
North Olmsted, Ohio...Style, functionality and sustainability -- homeowners today want it all when it comes to the products they put in their homes. Now, thanks to Moen, they can achieve this at the kitchen sink, with the new Lancaster™ Eco-Performance kitchen faucet.
Available at Menards, the new Lancaster Eco-Performance kitchen faucet offers beautiful, traditional styling, consumer-preferred high-arc pulldown spout -- and a multi-function spray wand featuring water-saving settings.
"Consumers are concerned about saving water -- until they are waiting at the kitchen sink trying to fill a pot or pitcher," said Kevin Campbell, director of retail marketing, Moen. "We are so excited to offer homeowners a water-saving kitchen faucet that still provides the exceptional performance they have come to expect from Moen."
Users can easily switch between three unique water flow settings: 1) Eco-Performance Aerated Stream (set/default setting); 2) Eco-Performance Spray; and 3) Full Flow. The default setting features a reduced flow rate of 1.5 gallons per minute (gpm) -- in an Eco-Performance standard aerated stream or aerated spray mode -- which translates to a 32 percent water savings. However, for tasks that require a set amount of water, such as filling a pot, washing dishes or preparing foods, homeowners can simply toggle to the "Full Flow" option to change the flow rate back to the standard 2.2 gpm rate.
For quiet operation and easier maneuverability when rinsing the hard to reach corners of the sink or when reaching outside of the sink area, the pulldown wand offers an ergonomic design with a fiber hose and a ball joint at the end of the wand. Additionally, Lancaster faucets offer Moen's patented Hydrolock® installation system which connects the faucet and supply lines together with a telltale "click" for a quick, easy and secure connection.
Lancaster faucets are available in LifeShine® Classic Stainless ($239.99*) and Moen's new Mediterranean Bronze finish ($259.99*), a warm hue that complements many popular metal kitchen accessories.
