Customer Questions & Answers

Can the Kohler K-R596N-VS faucet be mounted through a granite counter and is this the one that does not have a faceplate?

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes the faucet can be installed on granite. You don't need the faceplate to mount the fixture. Just be sure that the surface of the granite is clean and there is a gasket between the fixture and granite. I have the same installation and haven't had any problems with the faucet or leakage since I installed it over two years ago.

Deckplate optional or required?

The specifications say that mounting is with deckplate; however, the picture shows no deckplate. Is deckplate mounting optional?
Asked by: Anonymous
It is optional. They supply it for people who need to cover extra holes. I installed without it.

Hello. My sink has 4 holes in it, so how do you install this and make sure all holes are covered?

I know NOTHING about plumbing... KOHLER Simplice Single Hole Pull-down Kitchen Faucet in Vibrant Stainless
Asked by: Anonymous
You can install this faucet but you will need the faceplate that will cover the hot and cold water holes. The fourth hole will require a plug to cover this. There are plugs for this purpose available at hardware stores or plumbing outlets.

Is this for left handed people or can you move the knob to the right side?

Asked by: Anonymous
You can put the knob (lever actually) anywhere around the faucet which is great. Before tightening everything up I saw you could swivel it around to anywhere you wanted so I ended up putting it in the middle, centered in the front of the faucet. I found this to be the best place because you can easily use either hand from any direction to use the lever.

This is a fantastic product with a real nice finish. Very easy to install. We love the sweep spray feature, it sure make it easy to clean the dishes and the sink as well. I Sure did exceeded my expectations.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good, and powerful! Pros: loving the "water blade" (which isn't as much of a sweep spray... see below), the reach of the detachable sprayer, the "pause" button, looks great. Nice and tall so baby can take a bath in our sink and not bonk her head on the faucet. Cons: 1. we have a thicker backsplash and the handle can't actually go all the way back because it's stopped by the backsplash... so take that width into consideration! We offset it slightly by turning the whole facet slightly to the side so we can get the handle's full range of motion. 2. I thought that sweepspray only happened when you held the nozzle at an angle, thus creating the "water blade", per the impressive and informative video...? Yeah it's just like that all the time. Ok that's cool, but due to the handle's limited range of motion (in general, not due to the aforementioned thick backsplash), it goes from 0 to 60 INSTANTLY in regards to the water pressure with the slightest touch, which brings me to... 3. I just rinsed off a pan, plates, and utensils from dinner and MAN are they clean and QUICKLY too! And I'm SOAKED. The nozzle is powerful and tall - so that sprayer will mist/splash back all over you, the counters, and the floor. Easy does it on that handle!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not bad except for the stop-flow button This is the faucet that the developer of my townhouse complex chose to install in all the kitchens. Over the last year, I experienced a steady loss of water pressure and couldn't figure out why. On my final walk-through, I mentioned it to the developer's repair man and he knew right away what the problem was. Over time, the stop-flow button becomes increasingly stuck, allowing less and less water through. It happened in so many of the other units that he instantly knew what the problem was. You have to peel the round button off and use needle nose pliers to pull the plunger (?) out. In the process, the button itself was damaged. Save yourself the trouble and buy a better quality unit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dissapointing at best... We bought this online due to its good reviews and the fact it was a Kohler. It was shipped to out house. When we received it and opened the box it looked as though someone had carelessly thrown it in there. The entire faucet just seemed cheap. The big thing was the faucet head where it docks into the faucet did not stay in place. This is advertised as a having some feature that keeps it in place when not in use which wasn't the case. Very disappointed, returned and bought a Delta which I love.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Only lasts about a year. Expected better from Kohler Very disappointing. Looks great out of the box, works great at first, especially the water pressure on spray mode, and pull down retraction. After about a year, handle was loose then fell off. Had to keep reattaching and tightening every few days. Soap dispenser also stopped working around the same time. Has severely damaged my perception of the Kohler brand and am unlikely to ever buy Kohler again.

Having this faucet for a month now, it makes my daily dish washing task easier! It is easier to get pots under the faucet, I can aim the sprayer right where I need it, and I can lower the sprayer to the level I want. The faucet handle works VERY nice. The quality is definitely five star! Simply put, it is great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great faucet We looked at many faucets and settled on this one. There were only a few that were black so we went with a trusted name. The style was a bit modern for us but after installing it, it looks great. As for function- that also is great! The nozzle pulls out and retracts easily. It also has good pressure on the optional setting! Did I say it's great?
