If you want to read a review of how this faucet works once it’s installed, this isn’t the one for you.
So I originally got this faucet to replace a 3-hole faucet in my tenant’s 2nd bathroom. However, the thing I didn’t factor on was the height of this faucet. Or, more importantly, that plus the low placement of the medicine cabinet behind said sink. So that install failed (unless I wanted to move the medicine cabinet up. Which I couldn’t without a huge mess, because it was inset...)
At which point I figured, ok, no big deal, I’ll find another sink that needs a new faucet. Except… the only other bathroom sinks in the house had pretty recently, perfectly functioning faucets. My girlfriend needed a new one, but I ran into the same problem with her’s that I had with the first try - not enough clearance for the medicine cabinet (and, as bad luck would have, another built-in).
I then tried to install it on a friend’s sink, where there *was* enough medicine cabinet clearance, but this time the problem was that this design uses a threaded rod (rather than a threaded shaft) to secure the faucet under the sink, and no matter how I seated the faucet on her sink, the threaded rod + both water feeds + drain plunger rod were too cramped, and the drain rod would bind.
At this point I gave up. I’m sure this faucet will fially find a home one day (probably when one of the other faucets I have on sinks with higher medicine cabinets ffinally needs replacement), but for now I really wish I had picked something about 2” shorter.
However, since it seems to be a well built faucet from a manufacturer i’ve otherwsie had good luck with, I’m going to give it a 4-star review, as I should have been more careful measuring clearance before ordering.

Needing a single-hole faucet for our guest bath, I chose this high-quality Kohler Purist faucet in chrome for its wonderfully elegant, minimalist style. For me, the Kohler name has always meant outstanding quality, of which this item surely is, with its solid brass construction and ceramic disc valves. Installation was straight-forward and easy, following the enclosed instructions. The look is extremely clean, and the finish is beautiful. My wife is very happy with the compliments we have gotten on it, and I am happy when she is!

Until now, I've held the opinion that Kohler products were a tad bit too pricey, so I've used other nationally recognized brands.
However, my opinion is rapidly changing. From the start, it was obvious something was different since it weighs a lot more than the other brands. Upon close examination, I saw:
1) clean design (no screws holding on cover plates)
2) flawless finish (no visible seams)
3) smoothly operating controls (one finger slide for drain)
4) stainless steel braid-clad supply lines
5) supply lines connected (reduce possible leaks at faucet set)
6) adjustable pop-up stopper
7) easy to follow, well illustrated installation instructions
Installation was a breeze with no supply side or drain leaks. Water flow with the faucet fully open is less than from other faucets I've used, but still provides good pressure. The faucet set carries a limited lifetime warranty.
The kit was missing one part, the gasket that goes between the faucet set and sink top; this was not a major issue since the instructions allow the use of plumbers putty or the gasket.
I would recommend this product.

Truly a beautiful faucet that will instantly update any bathroom. This is a high quality and well made faucet by Koehler and it isn't cheap, but you get what you pay for. I love the clean lines on this faucet, and easy one hand functionality. Installed in my guest bathroom and installation was straight forward and easy overall. Instructions are clear and easy to follow. My biggest challenge was removing the old faucet which was old and stuck! This is a single hole installation and doesn't come with a cover plate to adapt a 3 hole. Easy to keep looking nice with a simple wipe down with a soft cloth. I anticipate this faucet will look great years from now.

After installing the low arc bathroom faucet I must say it us the most beautiful looking faucet I ever purchased. The styling fits perfect with my new granite counter tops. My guests even say that it looks like a faucet from an expensive restaurant. I will definetly be getting one for the other bathroom. Installation was a breeze. The mechanics of the handle are smooth. Nice thing with the lhe arc is the water splashes on the faucet you don't get the annoying water spots. I'm a clean freak so I notice these things.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SimpleKitchen Very solid and high quality
I had initially used a faucet which was smaller on a very small sink. However, the Kohler Purist was so much heavier and sturdier that I decided to try it. Since it has such a minimalist design, it works fine even in a very small bathroom with a small sink. The pop-up drain works very well. It is easy to clean. Installation was very straightforward with only one bolt to tighten (for the faucet.)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jayhawkfan Great Quality Product
This is a great quality product. The finish is top quality and it looks great. The supplies lines are already connected to the faucet so the installation was easy and zero leaks. This is a single hole faucet and does not come with a cover plate for three hole installation. The polished chrome goes great in my upstairs guest bathroom. The faucet has great pressure and is very easy to use and looks high end. It comes with a pop up drain for the sink and the pull level works great and is easy to install. This is another quality product from Kohler.

This faucet is a beautiful product that is sleek with all the internals in the in a narrow body for a slim look. The polished chrome finish over the solid metal looks great. The connecting hoses are flexible for an easy installation in tight spaces under a sink. A matching drain and stopper comes with this faucet. All the materials are solid and heavy.
