Gorgeous faucet that you can be proud to own, quick and easy install, I love it

  • Sep 14, 2011

We purchased a new house about 2 ½ years ago and it's a nice house but they faucets weren't anything special. They are pretty standard and don't look so pretty anymore. So I replaced my standard faucet with this one. As soon as I took it out of the box I could tell it was a very high quality faucet. It is costly but based on the quality I would expect it to last decades instead of years like many faucets.

It was fairly easy to install and only took about 45 minutes and that included time to thoroughly clean the sink prior to mounting the new faucet. The instructions were clear and easy to understand but you will need a helper to hold the faucet in place while you tighten it. Otherwise it tends to move out of place as you tighten the screw. You get to choose whether you want the handle to the left or right when you mount it. If you are replacing a faucet that has a separate sprayer then you will need to purchase a plug to fill the sink hole. The plug isn't included with this faucet.

The faucet operates differently than any other faucet that I have ever owned but I have learned to really like it. You push the handle down to turn the water on, up to turn it off. You pull it forward for hot water and back for cold water if you mount the handle to the left side. I think it will be reversed if you mount the handle to the right side. This faucet is entirely stainless steel. It doesn't have any clear handles to get dirty looking like many other faucets. The faucet has a very high arc with a pull-down sprayer that is built right in. The sprayer offers very smooth movement with a reflex system that will automatically pull it back in when not in use. The sprayer will allow you to switch between aerated stream and powerful spray and will also allow you to pause or temporarily shut off the water flow from the sprayer.

This is a fantastic faucet and I think it is well worth the investment. All of our appliances are stainless steel and this faucet looks great with them.
