LaToscana HKCR557IK Electronic Faucet

Aiken, SC (PRWEB) December 14, 2012  -- LaToscana has set new standards for designer kitchen faucets with their Hybrid electronic line of faucets. A beautiful blend of stylish design and technology, these faucets will surely add that futuristic touch to modern kitchens. The pull-down Hybrid faucet boasts a soft-touch control pad that enables a user to control the water’s flow and temperature with one or few touches. Furthermore, the faucet is equipped with an LED indicator that shows the water’s current temperature, which helps to prevent scalding. These smart features are matched by the Hybrid’s elegant, high-end design.

The Hybrid faucet’s water flow is completely controlled by an electronic unit that needs to be plugged into a regular 110 V outlet; the unit also has a rechargeable backup battery, which allows uninterrupted operation in case of power failure. The faucet has its control pad located on the front of the spray head with its five control buttons. Two of the buttons are designed to regulate the water flow rate (increase or decrease); two other buttons regulate the water temperature (one button responsible for cold water, the other one for hot water). The fifth button, located in the middle of the touch pad, changes the spray patterns from an aerated narrow water flow to a wide spray mode. The touch pad has an LED indicator with three light colors: blue indicating cold to lukewarm water temp.; purple indicating warm water, and red indicating hot water running from the spray head.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (PRWEB) December 11, 2012  -- “You must pick a drainpipe diameter large enough to keep the fluid from slowing down (you need at least 2-ft. per second) and to allow air in the pipe at all times,” says Mr Rooter. Bob Beall, master plumber and owner of Mr Rooter Plumbing, offers free expert plumbing advice daily to consumers in the Southwest Pennsylvania and Northeast Ohio region.

“Practically speaking, there are four different pipe diameters to work with: 1 1/2 inch, 2 inch, 3 inch, and 4 inch,” says Beall. Mr Rooter recommends staying away from 1 1/4 inch because its small diameter can become easily clogged and fill with water.

“There are very complicated tables the consumer can use to help choose minimum pipe diameters, but the following simple tips will keep you out of trouble,” says the most referred and trusted plumber in Pittsburgh and Youngstown.
