what does the K-10273-4-BN plastic drain look like? does it look like brushed nickel (Metal) or does it appear obviously plastic

Asked by: Anonymous
Itʻs brushed. Actually the part you see is metal. Beware, itʻs made in China and has a strange under sink gasket. Usually they are simply flat rubber gaskets, this one is cone shaped and doesnʻt work well in the position they ship it in.

What is the difference between the Kohler forte 8 in Bathroom faucets K-10272-4-BN and K-10273-4-BN?

Asked by: Anonymous
Thank you for your inquiry - the difference between the 2 faucets is going to be the type of drain to which is included. The K10272-4-BN will come with a metal drain and the K10273-4-BN will come with a plastic drain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great looking faucet this faucet is beautiful - I get tons of compliments on this - the faucet matches the bath tub faucet and the shower, etc - we installed the entire FORTE collection and we couldn't be happier

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall excellent faucet Good looking faucet and easy to clean. Sturdy with screw on connectors, no quick connects. Don't be fooled by the " plastic drain", it is very sturdy and the sink side parts are metal

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't buy Kohler Forte style faucets! We bought the entire Forte style line of Kohler faucets, tub spout, shower controls, etc., for our guest bath. They look great--until they get near water! The water spots and fingerprints are absolutely terrible! Worst I've ever seen. If I had known this was a possibility, I never would have purchased these faucets. I don't recommend that anyone buy them. We bought the Kohler Devonshire line for our master bath and they are great. Great style and no spotting. It surprises me that two Kohler brushed nickel finishes could be so different.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pluses and Minuses Beautiful fixture externally, built cheap internally. Drain tube is made of plastic, and cone shaped rubber washer does not make a good seal. Bought two of these for a double vanity, and both leaked from the rubber washer and plastic threaded drain tube. A quick trip back to home depot to buy different rubber washer immediately eliminated both leaks from sink bowl. For the price I would have expected a simple leak free seal from begining. Now that I am leak free, I am satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek but simple I've been really happy with these faucets. I got them set in my beige granite vanity top from Home Depot and the whole setup looks wonderful. These are simple in design compared to some of the others, but their sleekness fits pretty much any style bathroom. I am also happy with the water flow - I seem to get very good pressure with these, although they are more efficient. Great buy!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beware of poor quality control Assembled the faucet onto the sink before installing the sink to avoid having to work from underneath. Installed the sink, turned on water and stream was pointing off-center to right. Checked and discovered they had cross-threaded the filter and it was cocked to one side. Couldnʻt fix in place, so had to remove faucet, repair, and replace. So much for making life easier by pre-installing the faucet. Ended up spending twice as long to do the install. Also had trouble with the drain (made in China). Under sink gasket was cone shaped. If you install the drain with the cone up as it comes it will probably leak. Donʻt know why the cone shaped gasket, they are usually flat rubber. Reversed the gasket so cone was down and seems to be OK now. Canʻt say much for Kohler quality. They used to have good quality products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Piece of art This faucet looks like a piece of art. It works well, functions like expected, but - like most of the Koehler products - provides a an everyday visual pleasure. As far as the price, I got it practically for half price, due to a coupon which I used when ordering online. Very much satisfied
