When purchasing a faucet, you should consider quality, features, and style. Moen faucets are a perfect combination of all three!

Quality:

Moen's Ceramic Disc Design – A revolutionary ceramic disc design provides like-new operation for generations of use. European ceramic disc cartridge technology allows for harsh water conditions.

Moen's 1255 Duralast cartridge – provides a consistently smooth handle feel for the life of the faucet. Turn it on. Turn it off. Every time, the faucet will feel like new and perform like new. Smooth handle movement offers precise control, allowing you to fine-tune temperature balance.

Lifetime Warranty – Moen faucets come with a (Limited) Lifetime Warranty against leaks, drips, and finish defects. (post 1995 to the original home owner)

Features:

Our revolutionary M-Pact common valve system allows you to completely upgrade the style of your bathroom sink faucet or your tub and shower faucet without replacing any of the plumbing.
