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.

Simplice Single-Handle Pull-Down Sprayer Kitchen Faucet with DockNetik and Sweep Spray in Matte Black is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 225.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk After installing this no water came out. Kohler express shipped a new cartridge, but the allen screw was most likely installed with lock tight. I was unable to remove the handle and install the cartridge. Quality control is not high on the list. We returned and bought a Moen....This kohler faucet was junk! and wasted several hours of my time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Handle threads stripped in 5 months.... We bought this facet for almost $300 with the Kohler name. It has only been 5 months and the threads stripped in the handle. It stated Lifetime Warranty but quess what?? Yes, it does not include the threads in the handle. Really we have ordered the parts from Kohler and the bill is $50 to replace the threads. We are past the Home Depot warranty and Kohler does not stand behind it's products. SO DISAPPOINTING. So this will cost us $350 now and I hope the threads/replacement parts last more than 5 months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tall "arch" on faucet means lots of space for washing pots! Had a plumber install, and went easy enough. LOVE the size and shape of this faucet. I have had friends warn me to get one with a high arch, as lower arches can make it hard to wash large pots/pans. This one is fabulous. I'm a lefty, and its easy to reach "under the faucet" to turn on the water while holding a pan. The multi-spray options are great. We've had it installed about a month now, and after spending about 3 weeks researching faucets and "visiting faucets in person" I am so glad we landed on this one. It a very heavy weight, so feels sturdy, but so easy to just pull the cord and have it spray the whole sink. Love it!

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 5 out of 5 by from Love this faucet This looks great in my kitchen. Husband said it was very easy to install, quick installation. Wasn't sure if the fan spray claim was just a gimmick or not however, now that I have it, it does work much better that the traditional round spray when runsing down sink. The fact that the claim was not exaggerated is a pleasant surprise. Finish does not show prints and water marks easily. Pulls out with good 360 swivel in spray. When docked spray head does not sag out. Can rotate faucet from side to side. I recommend, and would, should need ever arise, purchase again. This is a beautiful fixture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice upgrade after living with cheap junk for decades. There are a lot of versions of this faucet. I purchased the chrome one because it was the cheapest. It's solid brass and should last a long time. It's easy to install and the hardest part is getting everything through the one hole in the sink. Handle placement can be any way you want. Even in the front over the sink because this thing swivels like figure skater. The broom spray is more useful than I ever though. It makes a huge difference compared to the usual spray handle that I will never go back to. I have a well, so pressure is low. If you have a good pump with higher pressure than you will love this thing. Nice and high and easy to use.
