Chicago Faucets New 3500 Series Offers Modern Style, Enhances Water Conservation For Commercial Office Buildings


Des Plaines, IL: Chicago Faucets, the leading manufacturer of commercial faucets, elevates style in commercial building restrooms with its new 3500 Series water conserving metering faucets. Made of durable ECAST® brass, the 3500 Series provides a sleek, modern look, true water savings, and easy installation.

The Chicago Faucets 3500 Series saves water with a 0.5 GPM (1.9 L/min) outlet. The self-closing MVP metering cartridge provides precise water flow and shuts off automatically for even greater water savings. The time-tested MVP mechanism is easy to adjust, and spare parts are readily available for quick change-outs, reducing downtime and lowering maintenance costs.

A solid ECAST® brass, chrome-plated body provides unmatched durability while meeting local requirements for the reduction of lead in plumbing fixtures. Pre-installed, flexible, stainless steel hoses connect to standard water supplies. Internal temperature control is accessible above the deck for easy adjustment. Models with an external temperature control are also available, allowing the user to adjust water temperature within a predetermined range.
