If it’s time to update your kitchen, then one of the first things you probably want to figure out is what kind of kitchen faucet you want as the room’s centerpiece. Delta is one of our most popular solutions for obvious reasons. At PlumbersStock, we are super excited about these new Delta Antoni kitchen faucets. It comes in 3 different finishes:
We are excited to announce that some of our favorite Moen collections have exciting new additions. Here at PlumbersStock, you can save on new Moen bathroom faucets with MotionSense Wave from the Flara and Doux series.
MotionSense is a proprietary touchless sensor faucet technology that improves user experience regarding hygiene and convenience. It’s just one of many reasons Moen is an innovative industry leader. There are 7 new models to choose from, including 5 different colors:
At PlumbersStock, Moen is one of our favorite brands, and it’s easy to understand why. They make beautiful faucets! One of the most popular bathroom collections released in the past few years is the Cia series, and we’re pleased to announce that we now have the new Moen Cia kitchen faucets. That’s right, Moen has expanded the line to include bar/prep faucets and kitchen sink faucets.
Just like with the bathroom faucets, there are four colors. However, for the bathroom series, it’s chrome, matte black, brushed gold, and brushed nickel. For the kitchen faucets, it’s chrome, matte black, brushed gold, and Spot-Resist stainless. There are a total of 16 choices:
In the plumbing industry, one of the most trusted names among pump manufacturers is Grundfos. In particular, they have a knack for making excellent pressure-boosting pumps. You may remember the MQ3 series, replaced by the SCALA2 series. It’s easy to see why we are excited to announce the arrival of new Grundfos SCALA1 pressure booster pumps. They come with some awesome new features, but they aren’t exactly a replacement for the SCALA2. We’ll get into that more later. Here are the four pumps plus a couple of accessories:
Pressure boosters are designed to ensure that your home gets sufficient water pressure. With the SCALA1, you get most of the features you’d expect. Not that these are necessarily standard, but with Grundfos, you anticipate more, like:
If you don’t know, the Takagi X3 tankless water heaters that were promised in 2019 never became manifest. Until now, and it was worth the wait. PlumbersStock offers all the brand new models with X3 technology, and dozens of other Takagi tankless water heaters, as well. Let’s get to the new X3 models.
Ask any plumber, and they’ll tell you that one of the biggest problems tankless water heaters face is scale build-up. Maintenance can be a significant 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:
My wife and I had been planning to remodel our kitchen for a few years, and a mold issue behind the dishwasher expedited the process. This accident expedited the process. Instead of repairing the damaged cabinets, we had the insurance company cut us a check to spend on a complete remodel. If you can get over living with torn-out cabinets and then a remodel for months, then this is what we call a happy accident. It paved the way for our new Moen farmhouse kitchen remodel. Maybe our experience will inspire you to overhaul your home’s layout, just like we did.

What Did We Do?
Every kitchen is different, and in some cases, you may keep all your appliances or maintain your layout. We did not. The sky is the limit, so get as creative as possible.
Sink and Faucet
We wanted the kitchen sink to be a focal point. We love farmhouse style with the apron front, and white was the only option we considered. We actually bought an Elkay sink, but it arrived with a chip on the corner (FedEx’s fault). The manufacturer didn’t have anything in stock to replace it, so I got a refund through PlumbersStock. They handled all of that for me. Maybe this was a blessing in disguise because I got a wider 33-inch model, the Moen farmhouse sink (FC331910). I initially went with Elkay because they have a strong reputation for making quality sinks. Moen is fairly new to the sink game, but this one was highly rated, and I saved a little money.
One of the reasons that Moen is among our favorite brands here at PlumbersStock is that they excel in intelligent solutions for plumbing professionals and homeowners. What if we told you that you don’t have to be home in order to turn on your sump pump in an emergency? We are excited to introduce the new Moen smart sump pump monitor. Homeowners can literally buy peace of mind when it comes to water damage from ingress (water from outside entering your home) flooding.
If you live in a flood zone, this device could be a figurative lifesaver. Anybody who has lost photo albums, baseball card collections, or experienced thousands of dollars in damages to flooding will tell you that this affordable invention can save you plenty of heartaches.
We are so excited about our new product release because it comes from one of our favorite manufacturers. TOTO is a leading global manufacturer of high-tech toilets and innovative bathroom solutions with a range of technologically advanced products. TOTO is discontinuing the G400 (you can still get it here while supplies last). Its replacement, the new TOTO G450 WASHLET, combines a cutting-edge toilet design with an integrated electronic bidet seat, just like its predecessor. So what’s different about the G450?
Each generation of smart toilets brings something new to the table. There are two main ways the G450 is an upgrade over the G400. First of all, the G450 WASHLET is much more compact. It measures just 21 inches from the ground, at its highest point, which is 6 inches shorter than the G400. Second of all, the G450 can maintain the same level of flushing performance as the G400 but with a more efficient flush.
It’s been a while since we’ve had an exciting release from Brizo. That’s because one of their best teams of engineers has been working on something big for the last 5 years, and it was worth the wait. Wait until you get a load of these new Brizo Frank Lloyd Wright bathroom faucets, inspired by one of the great functionally artistic minds of the 20th century. The Frank Lloyd Wright collection has everything you need to complete your bathroom remodel with stunning fixtures.
These fixtures come in one of six different finishes: chrome, polished nickel, polished nickel/teak, Luxe nickel, Luxe nickel/teak, and Luxe steel (in order, pictured below). The links below point to the chrome version of each faucet, but we have all six colors from which to choose.
If you’re in the market for a top-of-the-line smart toilet, you should consider the Trone Glacera, which is brand new to the market just in time for 2022. This luxury model has all the bells and whistles, which we will go over in full detail. Its unique square shape is what makes it stand out. Trone offers several intelligent toilets for customers with different budgets and needs. The Glacera is on the high end of their pricing model, so check out the others if this is a little out of your range.
What Is a Smart Toilet?
A smart toilet is a high-tech bathroom fixture that offers a variety of features, most commonly a toilet with a built-in bidet. They are often controlled with a touch screen or remote control. Smart toilets, or bidet toilets, are becoming increasingly popular, as they offer a more hygienic, luxurious, and comfortable experience than traditional toilets.
