North Olmsted, Ohio...According to Moen research, nearly half of today's homeowners prefer traditional styling when it comes to choosing a luxury faucet; and more specifically, they're searching for a faucet with unique and detailed design elements. Moen®, the 2010 WaterSense® Manufacturer Partner of the Year, answers these needs -- with water-saving benefits -- with the new Weymouth™ bath collection.

Faucets in the Weymouth collection stand apart with elaborate details, such as porcelain inlays with decorative "Hot" and "Cold" script in English or French on the handles, and a generously sized spout with distinctive curves. Homeowners can choose from a variety of design options, from two-handle widespread or wallmount lavatory faucets with either cross or lever handles, or a single-handle faucet with a lever handle uniquely positioned on the side of the faucet. But no matter which option, users will have the peace of mind knowing that they are choosing a WaterSense-labeled product featuring a flow-optimized 1.5 gallon per minute (gpm) aerator -- offering up to a 32 percent water savings.

"Weymouth is the very definition of traditional styling, with particular attention paid to every detail," said Cassy Osborne, Moen's wholesale bath product manager. "From the Euro-influenced decorative script on the porcelain inlays to the refined top finial, these faucets offer elaborate details to create a distinctively designed bathroom suite."

Beyond style and water efficiency, the single-handle lavatory faucet features Moen's new 1255™ Duralast™ cartridge. This state-of-the-art cartridge is just another example of how Moen continues to lead the faucet industry in innovation. The compact cartridge allows for exceptional design of single-handle faucets, while providing the consistently smooth handle feel and the highest levels of quality and durability for the life of the faucet.

In addition to lavatory faucets, the Weymouth collection offers two-handle Roman tub faucets, available with lever or cross handles and optional hand shower. Meeting plumber demands for flexibility and connectivity, the Roman tub valves also feature Moen's updated design to reduce installation time and alleviate the connectivity concerns associated with Roman tub installations.

Showering options are abundant in the Weymouth suite: Posi-Temp® shower-only, tub/shower and valve-only trim options and ExactTemp® shower-only and valve-only trims. For a completely customized -- and environmentally conscious -- shower experience, choose either the WaterSense-labeled Isabel® nine-inch multi-function Eco-Performance rainshower featuring a reduced flow rate of 2.0 gpm and Moen's Immersion® self-pressurizing technology for a more powerful experience, or the WaterSense-labeled Weymouth handheld shower featuring a 1.75 gpm flow rate with coordinating slide bar.

Moen's innovative M•PACT® valve system is available on a number of Weymouth products, including the widespread, wallmount, tub/shower and three- and four-hole Roman tub faucets. This revolutionary valve architecture makes it easy to upgrade the style of the bath in the future without replacing any faucet plumbing. A common valve design allows for a faucet change in just minutes: simply unscrew the handles and spout, lift them out and replace them with the new style. It is just as easy to change the shower trim.

To ensure the traditional look is carried throughout the bath, complementary bath accessories are available, including a pivoting paper holder, a cross-handle tank lever, double robe hook, towel ring, 18- and 24-inch towel bars and a unique "Vacant/Occupied" door sign.

The Weymouth collection is available in today's most popular finishes including Chrome, LifeShine® Brushed Nickel and Oil Rubbed Bronze. Weymouth lever handle bath faucets meet ADA requirements for the physically challenged.
