How many degrees (120, 170) does this faucet swing?

Asked by: Anonymous
This faucet will turn over a full 180 degrees. This feature is nice since you can turn it out of the way for cleaning and moving big pots. It is a good faucet for those who want a full acess to the sink.

I see a comment saying the threads aren't universal. Will I be able to get an adaptor to attach the faucet to mm portable dishwasher?

Asked by: KBee
Hello, my name is Elissa with KOHLER Customer Service. I am happy to assist you with your Kitchen Faucet question. Sorry, we do not offer the adapter for the 12172-G for a dishwasher application. They should be available from the manufacturer of the dishwasher. Please work with your local Home Depot for pricing and availability on this product. Thank you for choosing the Bold Look of KOHLER.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy to find a replacement We are pleased we could get a identical faucet for our kitchen since it was over 20 years old. The product installed relative easy and the brushed look is a nice change. Even the spray nozzle is brushed instead of plastic so it makes the sink look new again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The faucet is extremely low in sink. Diffucult to get pots under it. I have always had excellent water pressure, but the sprayer pressure is so bad that we don't even use it. I'm presently looking for a replacement. Also leaks aroun barrel of faucet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this faucet Have had this faucet,( fairfax K12172-CO ) for 13 years now. Only problem, has started leaking where swivels top and bottom. Need to find repair kit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful We've had this faucet installed for 8 years now. In that time we've received many compliments on it and it is a beautiful faucet. I'm not sure how long a faucet should last but for the last year or so we've had trouble with the sprayer staying on and taking the water flow from the faucet. Now in the last 4 months the stem has started leaking just below the handle. So while it served us, it served us well but now we're ready to move on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice faucet for the money This faucet is a good faucet for what you pay for it. The side sprayer could be better quality, but it is hard to find excellent quality side sprayers now, since most everything is made in China. Overall I am very pleased with it. I gave it a four star only because of the cheaper side sprayer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't Buy this Faucet!! Earlier review said water didn't come straight out...that's true, it follows the slanted line of the faucet. But it comes out so fast and hard, that whatever it hits, it sprays from there....if it hits the corner of the sink, it spashes up and hits you, the counter, and down the cabinets. I bought this because it had a higher flow rate than others, but it is ridiculous!! After installation, my plumber told me I should have gotten a Moen!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fairfax® Single-control Kitchen Sink Faucet I am pleased with our new kitchen faucet. It matches our bathroom sink faucet which was installed over a year ago. Special pluses: The gooseneck spout truns completely to the right or left to leave the entire sink space open. The handle can be left in any hot to cold position to be turned on at that temperature. On the negative side, I don't care for the angle at the end of the spout. The water comes out at an angle instead of straight down. Trying to remedy this with an aerator adapter, we found that the threads on this spout are not universal.
