THE GOOD PART OF THIS FAUCET IS THAT THE HOT AND COLD WATER LINES ARE ALREADY INSTALLED IN THE FAUCET. THEY ARE RED FOR HOT AND BLUE FOR COLD, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS
CONNECT THEM TO THE TAPS. TO CHANGE FROM ONE SPRAY TO ANOTHER IS VERY EASY AND FAST. MY ONLY NEGATIVE IS THAT THE WEIGHT THAT ATTACHES TO THE PULL DOWN SPRAY HEAD IS THAT THE WEIGHT GETS HUNG UP ON THE P TRAP PIPELINES, HOWEVER THIS WILL HAPPEN WITH ALL PULL DOWN SPRAY HEADS. I WILL TRY TO MOVE THE WEIGHT IN A DIFFERENT LOCATION OR RIG SOMETHING UP TO AVOID THIS PROBLEM THE FAUCET IS VERY ATTRACTIVE. THIS WAS A EASY INSTALLATION.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hillgang Easy install and looks and works great.
I am very satisfied with this faucet. It has a modern style with a stainless or brush nickel finish. You can switch between two sprays with a button on the head and you can also adjust the spray by a dial on the head. It also comes with a brush attachment for scrubbing dishes or pots. The instructions were minimal but good enough cause it was a simple installation. This was my first American Standard faucet and it was a good choice.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by schlafe A nice looking faucet
The American Standard Huntley SelectFlo Pulldown Kitchen Faucet in Stainless Steel is a good looking functional faucet. Installation was easy and included instructions were adequate. The faucet seems to be of decent quality that will last some time. Water flows from this faucet a really high rate filling up a sink in no time and it has great pressure (if not too much pressure) when using the spray options. There are also more spray options on this faucet than I know what to do with.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by IronAvatar Easy to install
This faucet is very simple to install, took me about 10 minutes start to finish. The most time-consuming task was tightening the set screws, and only because the space was very cramped to work in. The water connections went on securely, fit well, and are well marked. The pull-down part of the faucet works well, and remains easily maneuverable with cold water (our previous faucet stiffened up severely when using cold water and made it difficult to pull down and replace).
The finish resists spots and fingerprints a bit better than our previous polished chrome faucet, but not as well as the spot-free stainless of our refrigerator. The integrated replaceable scrub brush is a great feature that helps to get dishes clean faster. The only detractor I found is the misting feature, for which I have yet to find a use.
Overall, this is a high quality faucet that does a great job at being a useful kitchen tool.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pegnc Beautiful Faucet with More Options and Function
I have always wanted a pull-down faucet but was afraid it would look to large being above the windows. It is so stylish and functional, I could not be happier! I realized I need a new sink to accent this beautiful faucet. I have white cabinets and a farmhouse sink would look fabulous. Detailed instructions were included and installation was fairly easy. The included deck plate is for 1 or 3 hole installation and lined up perfectly once the old one was removed. This American Standard SelectFlo faucet takes pull-down convenience to a whole new level. It features five spray functions (stream, spray, jet, mist and pause) that allows the user to select the water spray pattern and strength for the task at hand. A snap on scrub brush for those heavy jobs, genius idea. The Re-Trax Pull-Down System allows the spray head to retract completely and features a more flexible spray hose for easy movement while performing kitchen tasks. A handy soap dispenser leaving the counter top clean. Easily refilled from the top. The hoses do hang down under the sink but all pull-down faucet do and I'm working around that with organization. I highly recommend this faucet.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Camano Beautiful and functional
The Huntley faucet is attractive and well made. I got it for a kitchen remodel that's incomplete so haven't installed it yet.It requires one 1.25" mounting hole. A 10" deck plate with plastic gasket is provided to cover any extra holes.
The arm will rotate 360 degrees, but it twists the sprayer hose as it rotates so more like 180 degrees is probably realistic.The flexible fabric over rubber supply lines are 16" long and have 3/8" compression fittings. The sprayer hose will extend 14".
The sprayer head is held in place by a weight on the hose. There is a tang on the head that locks it to the arm when retracted so the spray pattern can be selected by twisting the bottom of the spray head.
The faucet handle, if you're looking at it from the side, moves from about 10 o'clock for cold to about 1 o'clock for hot. At the full hot position it extends behind the faucet for about an inch, which might matter if the faucet is mounted near the backsplash.
Overall it seems very well made and I'm looking forward to getting it a place of prominence in my new kitchen

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LosRubios Looks great with good features and very simple to install. We love the built in scrub brush.
We installed this faucet in our office kitchen is a great, modern looking faucet with some useful features, including the detachable scrub brush which makes cleaning hardened food deposits off plates and cookware very easy. The brushed stainless steel finish looks really nice and is tarnish, scratch and corrosion resistant and is easy to keep clean with water and a paper towel to dry it off.
The push button three position 'SelectFlo' spray head is easy to use. The faucet also comes with a matching soap dispenser in the box however since we didn't have the additional hole cut in our sink, we did not install this but plan to in the near future.
The plastic scrub brush locks into place easily with a simple push and twist motion which means it is easy to remove and pop in the dishwasher to keep it clean from time to time. The brushes are also sold separately at Home Depot so they can be replaced when they wear out. A pack of two replacement brushes is less than $10 and is item 206090739 on Home Depot's website.
I found it very easy to install by myself and it took about 30 minutes to remove the old faucet and install the new one. The only tools you will need are a Phillips screwdriver and an adjustable wrench. The unit comes with a matching escutcheon plate (if you're mounting on a 3 hole sink top) or can be mounted on a 1 hole sink top. We decided to use the escutcheon plate on our one hole sink top as it looked nicer with it than without.
Most importantly for us, it has sufficient height between the bottom of the faucet and the sink to be able to fill 1 gallon water bottles that we use to refill the 4 gallon water filter on our water cooler which was one of the primary reasons we chose this design.
The three position SelectFlo spray is operated using a push button on the side of the spray head. You rotate the lower ring to the desired spray position and then push the button to activate the spray feature. Along with the conventional shower type spray pattern, it also has a finer pattern and a 'mist' pattern. The mist pattern would be very useful if you have to water plants and need to coat their leaves with water evenly although it does tend to drift onto the surrounding counter top because the mist is quite fine.
Installation is very straightforward. The only piece of advice is to pay attention to the rubber ring that goes between the undersink collar and the sink. When sliding the collar up the water pipes, I found that it can become tangled in the braided pipes and ends up slipping through the collar. My advice is to push the rubber ring all the way to the top by itself first and then slide the collar up as I found trying to do all three together was quite fiddly. The faucet is attached to the underside of the sink using a garbage disposal style collar which I have never seen before on a faucet. I found it very easy to install by simply screwing the collar on the faucet threads on the underside of the sink and then tightening up the screws in the collar to create the additional tension needed to hold the faucet firmly in place. One very nice design touch is that the water pipes are color coded, with a red stripe on the brading for the hot line and a blue stripe for the cold line which made connecting the lines up correctly very simple.
The unit comes with a limited lifetime warranty which covers parts replacement and if the parts are obsolete, replacement with a replacement faucet. That being said, it has the ceramic disc style cartridge which are very durable and long lasting and these can be replaced with the help of the part number diagram included in the installation instructions. Ceramic cartridge replacement instructions are also included in the installation instructions so its worth keeping them somewhere safe after the installation is complete.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by rosif3r Solid option, but a couple of minor gripes
One problem with dating someone who lives apart from you is that you start to realize differences between where they live and where you live. It gets even worse when *you* upgrade a bunch of your fixtures, and they still have the same old junky ones. Now what *they* have gets even worse by comparison.
Which is why, last month, I found myself on my hands and knees under my girlfriend’s sink, replacing her kitchen faucet. That’s not to say that I *didn’t* do it for her, at least in part. But to be blunt, I did it just as much for me, so I didn’t have to keep putting up with her old single-stem-no-spray faucet whenever I did her dishes.
So, here’s how it went. The install - pretty easy. Most of work was getting old faucet off and cleaning up. I like the design on the “thread on and 3-screw tighten” fastener; I’ve seen that before and it makes so much more sense for a retrofit than a standard nut fastener (which you normally can’t get fully tight without skinning 3 knuckles). Also nice, the connector for the soap dispenser unthreads at the top as well, so it was easy to feed it up from below, put on the top, and finish tighening the bottom part second. So, as far as the install went, pretty easy as these things go.
HOWEVER, the “place weight here” markers on the pull-down hose are all well and good, but (like others of this design i’ve installed in the past) they seem to assume that there’s *nothing in the way* directly under the faucet. Which is odd, considering a bunch of sinks drain to a wetwall behind the sink, and the drain is usually in line with a centrally placed faucet. Whatever - I modified the placement of the weight slightly, and later (although it’s not in the picture) added a gentle loop to further prevent the very long pulldown hose from hanging up on the drainpipe, or anything else down there. The pulldown heads still reseats fine with this minor mod.
Now, lets get to the use part of the review. Here, again, I’m mostly happy but I’ve got a couple of beefs:
1. The pause button. It only pauses flow while you’re holding it in. More importantly, it *always* reverts the flow to stream when unpausing. This is annoying. And it seems to be intentional design, although the wording in the owners manual is confusing on this point.
2. The spray is very strong. I actually closed the valves slightly to reduce the pressure, since at full bore it was coming out so hard it was bouncing back out of the sink and onto the counters. I mean, “Yay!?” for good utilization of water pressure, but be aware of this is you have, perhaps, a less than cavernous sink and reasonable water pressure in your lines.
3. The 3 different spray features seem, so far, like overkill. The “mist” seems more of a gee-whiz feature, but i guess if you’re someone who tends to need to keep your veggies moist-but-not-wet then you’d get some benefit out of it. That said, the easy-to-attach/detach brush seems like a cool gadget if you’re the kind of person who cleans off things like root veggies or mushrooms that still have dirt on them. I haven’t really played around with the brush yet, other than to see how easy it was to put on and take off the spray head.
So, with the exception of the few (mostly minor) gripes I’ve enumerated above, it seems like a solid entry in this segment of the kitchen faucet market. It’s tall, but not so tall it overdominates the sink. And it doesn’t sit too far over the sink either, so it works for a mid-sized sink like the one I installed it on.
