GO Faucet Series
Inspired by the subtle grace of the natural world, TOTO’s GO faucet family expresses a refined, delicate beauty with its fusion of organic forms with the fluidity of its elegant, sleek lines. It evokes the image of young, healthy plant stretching upward toward the sun as it draws nourishment from the earth below.
These matchless lavatory faucets illustrate refined style with their graceful organic design and unique top- or side-mount single handle. The GO faucet will serve as a sophisticated statement piece in any bath.
WaterSense labelled, these ultra high-efficiency faucets with durable brass construction flow at 1.2 gallons per minute (gpm). They offer TOTO’s COMFORT GLIDE technology, which features a special ceramic disk mixing cartridge with a Diamond-Like Carbon coating to ensure ease of use and extended life.
