American Standard. Making bath faucets easier to install, the company introduces its Speed Connect drain with just four parts. The unit is shipped pre-assembled; a flexible, durable stainless steel cable attached to the faucet body replaces the usual pivot and extension rod. Installation requires no special tools, and a foam gasket creates a watertight seal. A factory-installed internal seal eliminates common leak points, and the drain will never need adjusting, the maker says. 800.899.2614. www.americanstandard-us.com.
