Pfister Neera Kitchen Faucets Are Here!

matte black pfister neera culinary kitchen faucet installedWe’re bursting with excitement at the launch of this new series of Pfister Neera kitchen faucets. It’s an excellent option for anybody serious about cooking. Not only is it beautiful, but it delivers the functionality that a professional needs. Currently, we carry two options, each in four different finishes. One is a semi-pro culinary design and the other a standard pull-down. As Pfister describes the collection:

If there’s one faucet that’s prepared to bring out your inner chef at the drop of an impromptu dinner party, Neera is it. Soft, clean, transitional lines look beautiful in repose while the culinary option hints contemporary flair. This powerhouse is packed with features for chefs and foodies alike. Available in the most current finishes, Neera’s all the inspiration you need to dive into a new cookbook or two.

Neera Features

These new Neera faucets are one hole configurations with one handle, 360-degree rotating spouts, and high arc designs. Both models offer a 3-function spray (spray, stream, pause) head that is easy to maintain with wipe clean nozzles. Each comes with Pforever Seal ceramic disc valve technology, which has a reputation for lasting integrity. The forward-only handle control gives it personality, and it’s easy to use. The pull-down spray is supported by AccuDock secure docking patented technology. They both operate powerfully at just 1.8 GPM. Continue reading

New Manufacturer: Trone Smart Toilets

There’s a new kid in town within the bidet toilet combo industry. Trone Plumbing smart toilets are hitting the market with an excellent selection of models that will take your bathroom into the future. The innovative engineers at Trone have come up with dazzling designs. They combine the cutting edge technology of electronic bidet seats with fashion-forward toilets. You will love the sharp edges, and the features can change your quality of life. Here are the models of Trone bidet toilet combos that we carry here at PlumbersStock:

Nobelet

Its curved front and compact design typify this floor-mounted, elongated Nobelet series. You can get the Nobelet in either matte black or white, and both look amazing. The ADA-approved 18.5″ rim height needs to be taken into account. That may be too tall for some, but for others, it makes life so much better. It’s an environmentally-conscious option, as it operates with a powerful siphon jet flushing system at 1.3 gpf with multiple flushing modes.

The bidet seat works off of remote control. The sensors help to maintain hygiene. The adjustable spray wand allows you to get the customization you need for thorough cleaning. And the feature you’ll be so happy to have on a cold winter’s day, the heated seat! Let’s not forget, there is an LCD InfoSCREEN, a dryer/deodorizer, and more. Continue reading

Takagi X3 Tankless Water Heaters Are Coming!

new takagi x3 tankless water heater releaseedit url before publishing

Ask any plumber, and they’ll tell you, one of the biggest problems faced by tankless water heaters is scale build-up. Maintenance can be a big pain, and it threatens the life of the water heater unit. The innovative engineers at Takagi have a solution. With that in mind, it’s easy to see why we’re so excited about the new Takagi X3 scale prevention technology. As Takagi explains this innovation:

Our cutting edge X3 technology extends the life of the unit three times longer than traditional tankless and makes it the first tankless product that maintains “like new” performance without requiring regular scale-related maintenance.

If you are familiar with Takagi as a company, it should come as no surprise to you that they continue to lead the way with quality engineering. As of this December 2019 announcement, Takagi has only three gas-fueled X3 models scheduled for Q1 2020 release (the exact date is not yet known):

Takagi X3 Features

Here is a pretty comprehensive list of the features you will get with any of the Takagi X3 tankless water heater models. They only differ in their output: Continue reading

New Bradford White Infiniti K Series

close up view of bradford white infiniti k tankless water heatersIf you’re one of the many Americans considering a switch to tankless water heaters, then you should be familiar with this innovative, new Bradford White Infiniti K series. The manufacturer is billing it as the smartest on-demand water heater on the market. Here are the four focus products in this release:

If you are wondering how many BTU’s you need, think about your household’s usage. The 160k BTU water heater offers a 45-degree temperature rise at 7 gallons per minute. The typical faucet operates at about 1.5 GPM. If you have two faucets running, the washing machine, and dishwasher, you’d probably be fine. So if you have a big family, you might need to upgrade. Go with the 199k BTU unit, which offers a 45-degree rise at 8.7 GPM. The Infiniti K series is available in natural gas only.

Infiniti K Series Features

Maybe the most significant selling point with the Energy Star-qualified Infiniti K series is that it offers efficiency up to .96 UEF (uniform energy factor). It is made to operate efficiently, even at low flow rates. If you can believe it, your water heater activates at an impressive 0.45 GPM. It also offers best-in-class modulation (22:1 turndown). Did we forget about the warranty? You get a generous 15 years on the heat exchanger!

a hot bath is made possible on demand with Infiniti K water heatersAnother best-in-class feature, the Infiniti K venting length capability, is a game-changer. You can vent with either a 2″ or 3″ PVC pipe (or poly pipe) to a whopping length of 280′. Bradford White realized that the easier they make the installation process, the more water heaters they sell. That’s one reason why they came up with the self-calibrating gas valve and fan. It will automatically configure air-to-fuel ratios for flue length and altitude.

Set the temperature between 100 and 140-degrees Fahrenheit with the easy-to-use built-in digital control. It comes with wiring for an external recirculation pump (sold separately). There is an inlet water filter with easy access. If that’s not enough, they offer built-in freeze protection too. Here are a few other features to consider:

STEADISET

This innovation provides consistent temperatures without the use of a buffer tank. When you turn on the hot water, you can get a little pocket of cold water from the tap. Infiniti K’s active bypass virtually eliminates that pocket. The elimination of the buffer tank allows for a very compact design, which means you have fewer installation restraints to worry about. That’s not the only benefit of having no buffer tank. It also reduces scale build-up.

Scale Reduction Technology (SRT)

In comparison to conventional tankless water heaters, Infiniti K provides better long term performance. Bradford White calls this engineering initiative scale reduction technology. It means the Infiniti K series will reduce your maintenance costs, and simultaneously extend the life of your installation.

One last thing, check out this youtube video by Bradford White.

Fall TOTO Release: Wall-Hung Toilet Replacement, CT418FG vs. CT426CFG, CT428CFG

We are excited to announce the new fall TOTO release which includes an abundance of amazing bathroom design solutions. Maybe the most important change to mention right off the bat is that the TOTO has replaced the CT418F, CT418FG with the CT426CFG and CT428CFG. We’ll get into the differences between the models and all the different options later in this post. The other thing worth noting is that there are several new faucet collections (GB, GC, GE, GF, and GM). No matter what you like from this fall release, remember that PlumbersStock is going to offer you some of the best prices you’ll find anywhere online, so buy TOTO here.

Replacing the CT418F and CT418FG

new TOTO AP wall-hung toilet model

With these older models, the difference between them was that the CT418F did not come with CEFIONTECT technology, and the CT418FG did include it. This is a finishing glaze that makes your toilet beautiful and easier to keep clean. With this new release, all the toilets include CEFIONTECT technology, so technically there is no direct replacement for the CT418F. The two new models offer more efficiency*, two distinct designs (CT426CFG and CT428CFG), and a variety of options.

*Dual Flush now offers 1.28 gpf or 0.9 gpf, whereas with older models it was 1.6 gpf or 0.9 gpf

New AP Wall-Hung Toilets (CT426CFG)

  • CT426CFG#01 AP – Dynamax Tornado, Universal Height, CEFIONTECT
  • CT426CFGT40#01 AP – Dynamax Tornado, Universal Height, CEFIONTECT, with S500e WASHLET+

There are two unique models in the collection, and three finishes for each model. The Paterson kitchen sink faucet is available in:
