INDIANAPOLIS - Brizo®, the fashion faucet brand, recently unveiled a classic from the past featuring up-to-date "green" technology. The Tresa® bath collection features traditional classic design inspired by the earliest of European fountains with water conservation benefits that meet today's consumers' needs.
"The design of the Tresa collection harkens back to a different era, but its functionality is all about meeting modern needs," said Laura Brooks, Brizo senior brand manager. "The Tresa collection allows homeowners who seek fashion-forward design and performance to create a beautiful, indulgent experience in the bath while remaining environmentally responsible."
The Tresa lavatory faucets are labeled by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as water-efficient with an official WaterSense® designation. The lavatory faucets flow at 1.5 gallons per minute (gpm) at 60 pounds per square inch (psi), saving approximately 30 percent of water over its 2.2 gpm counterparts. In addition, discerning homeowners who seek a water-efficient shower system without sacrificing design, comfort or performance have the option of a medium flow thermostatic shower system. Body sprays with H2Okinetic Technology® flow at a rate of 1.6 gpm and provide a luxury feel while delivering 36 percent less water than conventional shower systems.
The Tresa collection encompasses an expansive suite of coordinated products with "old world" European influence: a single-hole, single-handle vessel deck with an optional riser; a single-hole, two-handle lavatory; a widespread lavatory; a wall mount lavatory; a three- and four-hole roman tub; and a widespread bridge lavatory - a first for Brizo. The collection offers a choice of cross or lever handles. For the shower, homeowners may choose from a medium or high flow thermostatic shower - with customizable options such as body sprays with H2Okinetic Technology. A complete line of coordinated bath accessories rounds out the extensive Tresa collection.
Tresa collection lavatories are WaterSense® labeled and compliant with low lead legislation. The collection is available in a variety of finishes including Polished Chrome, Brilliance® Brushed Nickel, Brilliance® Brushed Bronze and the popular Venetian Bronze®.
 WaterSense® is a registered mark of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
 California Health and Safety Code 116875 (AB 1953) and Vermont Law No. 193 (S152) and upcoming national legislation mandate that the weighted average lead content in pipes, fittings and fixtures used to convey drinking water cannot exceed 0.25% on wetted surfaces.
