Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by BillB Economical Replacement on Old Kitchen Wall Sinks
I agree with the last review by George. I had very little problem installing on an old cast iron kitchen wall sink. The swivel union is a plus when installing, if you are dealing with not quite an 8 inch spread. The swivel union also has the capability of either a male or female connection on the water supply. I also like the ceramic cartridge with a quarter turn off stop, as opposed to Matco-Norca faucet that have valve stems and always seem to strip out when you have tenants. The Matco-Norca also cost almost twice as much.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by DIYFarmer Great Faucet, Don't let other reviews mislead you!!!
Have had this faucet for 5+ years with NO PROBLEMS, which is amazing given the poor quality well water that is run through it. It has never leaked so I haven't had to find parts for it. It goes right on a 1/2 inch male pipe stub out so I don't know why people say they can't get it to hook up to their supply. MAYBE they should read the instructions, although I didn't and it still hooked right up, Or maybe they should use ALL the parts that come with it, or maybe a simple faucet install is over their head and they should call a qualified installer. It is also the faucet with the most pressure/volume in the house. So if it lack pressure for somebody, they should recheck their install for debris or blockage in the supply pipes. Never the less it is a great unit and I would buy another one if I ever need to.

Hot faucet started leaking less than a year ago so I headed down to the local hardware store to find a washer. No luck, according to them you can't find ceramic cartridge washers anywhere. Not only that but you can't find replacement cartridges anywhere either! So I thought I'd prove them wrong and headed back to home depot figuring they sell the faucet they'll have it. Wrong! So I spent most of the day and way too much gas going to 4 other hardware stores and they all told me the same thing. So, just to make sure it's the washer, I switch washers with the cold and it still leaks. Then I called Glacier Bay and I have to say they were very helpful and sent me hot and cold cartridges free of charge. When they arrived I noticed they were a smaller diameter and so had a smaller washer than the old ones. No problem, put 'em in and everything was fine. Until last week when the cold started leaking. I checked it out and it's the ceramic cartridge, not the washer!

I bought this in desperation on a Saturday night, when my old faucet started running uncontrollably (and I realized that my main valve no longer closes completely). The hardest part was removing the old faucet. Once that was done all I needed was a little Teflon tape and a wrench. It looks great, although the soap tray is plastic and flimsy. My only suggestion would be to replace the nozzle - I installed my old one, which has a swivel and a spray. All in all, I am a very satisfied customer.

I have to strongly disagree with the two negative reviews I saw here. If all of the parts are in the box, this faucet will install on a standard 1/2" male threaded stub out. In my case, I am installing this in my apartment in Peru where the fitting is a 1/2" female thread flush with the wall. All I needed to buy extra are two 1/2" x close pipe nipples to make the connection. The faucet includes two adapters that are in a separate small box in the carton. If these are missing, I agree, there is no way to install the faucet. Click on the Specifications link under More Info on the Home Depot Web page and look at part numbers 17 and 19. One side of the adapter is a standard hose bib style thread, and that connects directly to the faucet with the rubber washer #17. The other side of the adapter has a larger male thread on the outside and a 1/2" female thread on the inside. This is what fits either the 1/2" stub out or in my case, the 1/2" pipe nipple at the wall. The adapters are not shown on the picture on the Home Depot Web page or on the carton, but they are an essential part of the installation.
