Pfister LF042JDCC Jaida Bathroom Faucet Review ~ October 2020

The Pfister Jaida Single Control Bath Faucet offers plenty of unique features that show off why Pfister is the cream of the crop. Lead-Free Compliance and exceeding Water-Sense Standards are among just two of those features. But be aware that all this comes at a price. Check out our best bathroom faucets list for more great ideas!

Why We Like It – Pfister LF042JDCC Jaida Bathroom Faucet

The Pfister Jaida offers some standard options, like ADA compliance so anyone can use it, along with options that are quite rare, such as no-tool installation and a never-leak guarantee, that combine into a bathroom faucet that’s one of a kind and makes you realize why Pfister is at the top of the faucet game.

Pros

  • Complies with Lead-Free Requirements
  • Variety of Great Finishes
  • Exceeds WaterSense Standard by 30%

Cons

  • A lot of Pfister-Only Parts means You Must Buy Replacements from Them
  • A Little Expensive

Performance

The Pfister Jaida Modern Single Control Bath Faucet meets all ADA requirements so people from all walks of life can use the faucet with ease. The faucet also complies with lead-free requirements set out by the U.S Safe Drinking Water Act. If lead-free is an important factor, please use, or consider using, the Brushed Centerset Lead Free Bathroom BF015 1 BN. If you live in California you’re in even more luck as the Pfister also exceeds CALGreen Criteria and is also in compliance with CEC water efficiency standards.

Design

The Pfister Jaida collection make use of a variety of finishes to catch your attention. These finishes include polished chrome, brushed nickel, spot-defense brushed nickel, and tuscan bronze. Pfast Connect reduces installation time and guarantees a secure connection to water supply lines. Finally, the installation requires no tools which is a plus for those who may be tool

Peerless Single Handle Centerset Bathroom P136LF Review ~ October 2020

The Peerless Single Handle Centerset Bathroom P136LF Bathroom Faucet is an ideal faucet for seniors that’s not only affordable, but easy to install. Supply lines aren’t included though, so you’ll either have to already have some or purchase them separately. Our list of best bathroom faucets will have even more to tell you, so check it out!

Why We Like It – Peerless Single Handle Centerset Bathroom P136LF

The Peerless P136LF Bathroom Faucet’s ADA compliance means that anyone, from all walks of life, will be able to use the faucet without any troubles. The 3-Hole, 4-Inch Centerset configuration is quite easy to install and the limited lifetime warranty means you can rest easy if something does indeed go wrong either with installation or regular usage.

Pros

  • Ideal for Seniors
  • Comes in Chrome or Brushed Nickel
  • Affordable

Cons

  • Not rated for cUPC or NSF 61
  • Some Plastic Components
  • Supply Lines Not Included

Performance

The Peerless Single Handle Centerset Bathroom Faucet is ADA Compliant so anyone with disabilities, or elderly people with mobility issues, should have no trouble using it. In fact, we found this faucet to be especially ideal for seniors because the spout height is a mere 1.72” while it’s length is 3.91”. This makes it easy for anyone to reach over and turn on and ensures the water is poured directly in the basin. You can also consider the Brushed Centerset Lead Free Bathroom BF015 1 BN if you’d like a faucet that’s also cUPC and NSF 61 compliant too.

Design

The Peerless Single Handle Faucet is easy to install and designed to fit 3-hole, 4-inch centerset configurations. Unfortunately, this means you’ll have to look elsewhere if you have a single-hole sink as there’s no way to rig the faucet. But if you don’t mind more than one hole,

Travis Perkins Bathrooms Review – Which?

We asked nearly 4,000 bathroom owners about their experiences of buying their bathroom so that we can compare and rank popular brands, including B&Q, Victoria Plum and Bathstore.

The well-known company with the best customer score got a brilliant 80%. The 58% customer score for the poorest-performing company is a stark contrast to this impressive rating.

We calculate our overall score by asking people how satisfied they are on a seven-point scale from very poor to excellent, as well as whether they would recommend the company.

We also ask people to rate the company for important factors, on the same scale, so we can award star ratings for each aspect of service. For each company and area we rate, we need a minimum of 30 responses.

Better Bathrooms Review – Which?

2019 has been a difficult year for Better Bathrooms, having gone into administration early in the year. It still trades online after being bought by Buy It Direct.

Better Bathrooms used to have a number of showrooms and trade counters, but these were all closed in early 2019. 

The company’s new owner – which also owns Furniture 123, Laptops Direct and Appliances Direct, among other brands – sells its products online with the same betterbathrooms.com address.

Because of its recent difficulties, we haven’t rated Better Bathrooms this year. But read on to find out how we rated Better Bathrooms previously, as well as information on what products it sells and services it now offers.

You can find out how other bathroom companies, including Soak, Victorian Plumbing and Homebase, were rated by their customers this year on our best and worst bathroom companies page.

If you’ve bought from Better Bathrooms or another company that’s gone into administration, such as Bathstore, read our advice on what to do if a retailer goes into administration.
