Rated 5 out of 5Â by jswobe High quality faucet; easy to install, works well
I installed this on a new vanity top before securing it to the vanity. That always make installation easier. However, this faucet was still very easy to install and came out looking quite nice. The nut that secures the locking bar under the spout is about three inches long, making it very easy to reach if you had to do it from the front of a cabinet with the top already installed. The supply line connections were easy to make, and the drain assembly was typical.
The handles turn very smoothly, if not a little on the tight side. I prefer handles that are tight and less likely to loosen over time, or that are difficult to tighten because of age and use. So far, these are working quite well.
The faucet has good water flow and there is a nice angle on the spout, making for convenient use. The water does not pour straight down into the drain but slightly forward, making it more comfortable to use (less leaning forward to reach the water flow).
Overall, this is another quality Kohler product that looks great and feels as though it will last for some time.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by MrFixIt Easy install, solid faucet
Replacing a sink seems like a daunting task. If you have the right tools, it makes it easier. But nothing beats having a great design, and that's something that this Kohler sink excels at.
The only tough part of installing this sink was removing the old one! It was starting to rust, and a few of the nuts were tough to get at. But once the old one was out, installing the new one was effortless. The faucet went in pretty simply. The one problem i ran into is that the legs of the "C" bracket that holds the faucet in place were a bit too long because the counter has a lip that extends over the back edge of the sink. However if it happened to me, it could happen to you. The solution was simple, though. I just placed the edges of the bracket in a vise about 1/2" down and bent it back. No sweat.
The nut to secure the faucet to the counter is very long, over 3", and makes it incredibly easy to install. I've never seen this, but it made a hard to reach installation pretty simple.
The handles went in with little fuss as well, using a typical nut plate with screws for tightening. Plumbers putty was required for the handles, but not for the faucet, as it had a rubber ring.
The use of this faucet leaves a few things to be desired. First off, the stick to control the drain plug hits the long nut used to secure the faucet. So while it made installation a breeze, it was an impediment to actual use of the drain. Poor follow through. If you regularly use this, it could get quite annoying.
The handles also seem a tad tough to turn. Not excessively tough, mind you. Just not as smooth as i would have though for a brand new fixture. Additionally, the whole assembly seems to be very NOISY. When the water runs, its quite loud. I don't know why that is. I checked out two other sinks in the house just to ensure i wasn't crazy for the above noise and turning issue, and sure enough they didn't suffer from either of those problems.
The best part about the faucet, by far, is the water flow. Common for faucets nowadays is to have an aerator in the tip that mixes air and water. This usually results in a very bubbly water stream. Not here! The water flows out in a beautifully shaped stream, bubble free. Fantastic!
A nice minimalistic brushed nickel faucet that would seem at home in almost any counter.
Installation was a breeze, albeit at the cost of regularly impeding the use of the drain stick.
Faucet is surprisingly Loud, however water-flow is excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by dlal Excellent product with a great design. Great ease of use & durability.
We really liked this product and found it had a matching Linwood shower body. The brushed nickel color is elegant and rich. The fixture seems very durable and sturdy; well-made. We love the good water flow & pressure and good ease of use with the handles. It has a clean design feature that is modern and an instant classic.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by dmp123 poor quality, see the details. cheap plastic parts.
few things. First, I was given two cold water levers. Annoying, but as I know from installing many faucets over the years, you can simply remove the lever top, flip the "gasket" and reverse.
Well...that is if you buy a product that is built with any quality.
The insides of this faucet are all plastic. Worst part--the "bell" that elevates the lever from the sink is PAINTED PLASTIC! What a joke. So, if you bang it, bump it, use ANYTHING with scouring power, it will scratch.
Sad, because Kohler was a quality brand. Pure junk. I will never buy a Kohler product again. Ever. Would have been just as good buying an entry level product.
