Exciting News!

The other day, I got an email from Pfister inviting me to do some guest posts for them. I was immediately shocked, amazed, excited and overwhelmed. Me? Then they came up with something even neater to sweeten the mix. They added a contest. The bloggers that they have invited will pick their favorite faucet out of Pfister's WaterSense line of faucets, and explain why it is their favorite. The bloggers will then be added into a random drawing to win a Pfister faucet. Then the fun begins for "Pfister's entire social community (including my readers)" to be able to enter a contest, which is open to the public. Starting today "entries are being accepted on Pfister's Earthday Blog entry via" something they call "a Rafflecopter giveaway." See Pfister's Earth Day Giveaway.

In order for you to understand why I am so excited, you need to understand that my husband and I are already preparing to upgrade our 37 year old kitchen and bathrooms because they are - well - 37 years old. The faucets have been replaced a few times from shear wear and tear. Some of the faucets that we have had in the past were not Pfister. But guess what faucets we buy now. Pfister! Why do we buy Pfister? Mainly because of their ceramic cartridge - it is in their Pfirst series. Our personal experience with the ceramic cartridges has been great. You know how washers in faucets can go bad and leak? We personally managed to solve the problem of replacing washers frequently by going with Pfister. We have also found Pfister to be sturdy. We have been using our current kitchen faucet long enough for it to get encrusted with lime deposits, but I cleaned it up today and it looks like new. At least some of the faucets have a warranty called Pforever Pfister - look it up on their website and see what you think. Another thing you should check out is their Universal Tub & Shower Upgrade Kit. If you want a WaterSense faucet, and don't currently have Pfister, you may be able to use their universal upgrade kit.

So which WaterSense faucets did I choose? For the bathroom sinks, I have chosen:  Pasedena Widespread Bath Faucet (F-049-PDKK) - Brushed Nickel

I like the strong, sturdy rectangular base of the faucet mixed with the flowing gestural curve to the spout. It seems the perfect mix of male to female elements for a shared bathroom. I like the design detail of the flared end to the spout of the faucet. It makes the faucet appear more graceful. The Pasadena Roman Tub fixtures will be for the tub unless Pfister upgrades their Pasadena Tub & Shower fixtures to more closely resemble the bathroom faucets by the time we remodel. The Pasadena Roman Tub and the Pasadena Widespread Bath Faucet both have the Pfister Pforever Warranty. The WaterSense faucets could save the average home 30% in water consumption.

For the kitchen, I have chosen, Lita Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet - Stainless Steel Model #GT529- SMS. I like the smooth, clean, graceful lines - like a swan. You can pull out the spray head to easily reach any area of the sink and it has what they call their AccuDock system to ensure that the head of the faucet goes back into place like it should. This model is CAL Green compliant which could save the home 20% in water consumption. These faucets could help us conserve water and save money on our water bill, both.

And just to show you how well Pfister lasts, here is a picture of our current Pfister F-WKP-70 Pull-Out Kitchen faucet. I would only trade it for another Pfister.
