There are a lot of different options out there when it comes to waterfall faucets. Unfortunately, many of them put style over function. Although they look great, some these faucets are hard to use, and offer a poor value for the money.

That’s why Pfister made the Jaida. This simple, streamlined faucet offers you all of the style you’d expect with a waterfall design, while still being functional enough that you can rely on it for your daily grooming routine.

Pfister LF042JDKK Jaida

  • 1.2 GPM Flow Rate
  • Push and Seal Pop-Up
  • 1 or 3-Hole Installation

The faucet produces 1.5 gallons of water per minute, giving you more than enough water for day to day purposes. The push and seal train stays completely watertight, and releases easily when you push.

You’ll have to splash out a bit more for the Jaida than other standard faucets. But given the performance that you get, on top of the elegant design and durability, it’s a great value.

Key Features

The Jaida stands out for its style. The sleek lines give it a modern feel, but it still feels at home in more traditional bathrooms as well. This versatility makes it a great option no matter what style of bathroom you’re outfitting.

The trough spot on the faucet produces a steady, relaxing stream of water. If you don’t like waterfall faucets, the Jaida won’t win you over. But if you do, you’ll enjoy the Jaida.

The spout pours out 1.5 gallons per minute, so you’ll have plenty of water for brushing your teeth, shaving, or washing off. Although the spout is a waterfall, the water forms a focused stream, helping to give you a bit more pressure. And you get a relaxing waterfall sound whenever the faucet is running.

The spout is 4”, so you have plenty of clearance from the surface of the counter. You should be able to fit a glass under the spout, or lower your face to rinse it below the faucet.

The single lever is used to control temperature, water pressure, and water flow. The lever is simple but very responsive, making it easy to make adjustments. You won’t have to spend minutes just trying to get the right temperature.

The ceramic valves have a never leak guarantee, giving you reliable performance after years of use. They also help prevent water waste, saving money on your next bill.

The faucet comes with a push and seal drain. Unlike many sink drains, the this one stays sealed, and easily releases when you push down. It’s a simple feature, but it makes a real difference.

The Jaida is also WaterSense approved, which means it has been certified for reducing water waste. This is good for the environment, and also for your wallet. The materials in the faucet have also been certified as low lead.

The Jaida comes with deck mount, if you want an extra layer to seal the faucet. However, it can also easily be mounted without the deck on both 1 and 3 hole installations.

Pros and Cons


  • Stylish waterfall spout
  • Excellent water flow, at 1.5 gallons per minute
