Delta Temp 2.0 Technology for Peace of Mind

Getting the water temperature just right for either your bath or your shower no longer requires you quickly sticking your hand under the water for a quick test.

Delta‘s Temp 2.0 Technology provides color-coded temperature read-outs as well as bright digital displays so stepping into the tub or under the shower is always just right.

The entire line of Delta Temp 2.0 fixtures – shower heads, tub faucets and hand-held showers – includes three colors for easy temperature readings; blue for cold (73 degrees); purple for warm (100 degrees); and red for hot (113 degrees).

Additionally, the digital display is large and back-lit for easy reading so there’s never any guesswork when it comes to water temperature.

Why You Should Consider a Comfort Height Toilet

If you have never before considered the height of your toilet and it’s time to think about a replacement, take a good look at a comfort height toilet.

Unlike traditional toilets that measure an average of 15 inches from the floor to the top of the seat, comfort height pieces are two to three inches taller so sitting down isn’t as much of a stretch.

While it might not seem like much of a difference, consider how it feels to take a seat on a comfortable chair, the seat of which is usually 18 to 20 inches from the floor. Not only is there less stress on joints because the surface of the seat isn’t any lower than 18 inches, getting up requires less effort as well.

Now think about a traditional toilet seat at 15 inches. While that height might be great for potty training little ones, adults, especially those with health conditions and older people like grandparents, can feel more confident in their ability to care for themselves with a taller toilet.

Comfort height toilets are, as the name implies, more comfortable and make using the bathroom easier for adults of all abilities but especially those who might need a little extra help.

Moen Voss Trol Shower Trim Moen Kingsley Posi Temp Shower Trim\

If you’re looking to upgrade your shower faucet for a new look without tearing up the whole bathroom, there are some great choices available.

When it comes to single-handle shower faucets, the real choice for homeowners is whether or not to choose a Moentrol or a Posi-Temp model. In a nutshell, the Moentrol – invented by Moen – allows users to set their water temperature and then just pull the handle out and back for easy operation while the Posi-Temp operates in a circular motion; the further away from the “off” position, the warmer the water.

The choices above represent one of each; the trim kit on the left is a Moentrol in the Voss collection with clean lines and sharper edges, and the trim kit on the right is a Posi-Temp from the Kingsley collection in a vintage style and brushed brass finish.
