From their simple beginnings in 1910 to the international presence they are today, Pfister has brought high-quality hardware and a personal touch to bathrooms and kitchens of all shapes and sizes. As proven by their plumbing products, the company is no stranger to the innovative design required to succeed in the industry. In this guide, we’ll explore Pfister’s faucet lineup, giving you all the details you need if you’re in the market for a new model.

The Basics

With Pfister, it’s all about options. The company’s faucets are typically made of either brass or metal, but come in a variety shapes and sizes that fit in with any kitchen or bathroom interior design vision. Paired with Pfister’s years of experience in the industry, this wide selection is backed by a promise to provide you with a faucet that is long-lasting in addition to being visually appealing.

Faucet Types

With so many models available in so many finishes, it can be a little daunting to narrow down your options. However, you can start by figuring out where in the house you want the faucet installed; below are the major Pfister faucet types that SUPPLY.com offers.


pfister_faucetWhen it comes to their bathroom faucets, Pfister ranges from traditional to entirely unique. Depending on your spacial capabilities, installation types include both centerset (where the faucet and handles are attached as one single unit) and widespread (where the faucet and handles are not attached to each other). Plus, the faucets themselves can be simple yet timeless like the Pfirst Centerset model, geometrically inclined like the Skye Centerset model, or even single hole-style like this model from the Ashfield collection (pictured).

If the shape of the faucet doesn’t matter as much as the color, remember that you can always filter your options by finish. Pfister bathroom faucet finishes range from brushed nickel (a popular alternative to stainless steel) to Tuscan bronze; consider the other fixtures in your bathroom before choosing the finish for your new faucet.


Kitchen faucets typically require more arm room than their bathroom counterparts, and Pfister takes that concept to heart. Their faucet spouts range from 1.06 inches in height to a whopping 17.31; some even have adjustable heights, like this faucet from the Elevate collection. The height that’s right for you really depends on whether you’re a simple hand washer or a heavy duty dish scrubber.

As with their bathroom models, Pfister offers several installation types for their kitchen faucets, with the added bonus of a soap dispenser or spray mechanism on the side if space allows for it. And if you’re looking for a design flair that will really pop in any kitchen while also affording you even more flexibility, check out the Pfister wall mount faucets.


Tub faucets are often overlooked in favor of fancy showers these days, but the right faucet can be the key component in making your bathtub a relaxing sanctuary. The Pfister single hole faucet is a popular one here, but if you’re the type who likes to have a little bit more control over water flow, then Pfister also offers a range of faucet and handshower combinations (pictured) that give you all the maneuverability you need.

On the other hand, you might just have your eyes set on a standard tub faucet that doesn’t take up too much space with fancy spouts and gadgets. If so the Pfirst tub faucet in chrome is a simple yet reliable unit to check out.

Faucet Features

In addition to their numerous spout, handle, and finish combinations, Pfister has also ensured that many of their faucets are ADA Compliant, meeting the standards for handicap accessibility set by the Department of Justice. On top of that, a majority of Pfister faucets are also WaterSense certified, meaning that they have less of an environmental impact, while at the same time saving you money on your water bill.

Pfister Innovations

In case their designs aren’t enough to set them apart from the crowd, Pfister has incorporated a number of innovations into their faucets that ensure a longer-lasting, higher-quality performance. AccuDock technology, for example, is a feature present in several Pfister kitchen faucets that ensures the sprayhead remains locked in place when not extended. SoftTouch is another kitchen innovation from Pfister that ensures both comfort and grip by coating the faucet handle and sprayhead with a durable rubber material.

For bathroom faucets, many of Pfister’s models include the Push & Seal drain with purchase. This drain has a guaranteed tight seal and only comes in three parts; installation time is short and no tools are required.
