Rated 5 out of 5Â by SaltwaterOtter Excellent Faucet, Poor Instructions
I bought this Kraus faucet and it arrived in very fancy packaging and it is justified. The fit and finish of the faucet is very good. It is heavy and should last for years. Functionally it has smooth action and the pull-out feature is wonderful.
However, the instructions are meager at best. There is an exploded parts diagram, which is good. The included tools are good. The step-by-step is all cartoons and sparse on detail. There is a recommendation to use a lithium grease (what?!) on the pull out hose and return spring. My guess is one should use a Teflon based grease or none at all. How you get the spring off its storage tube is not even mentioned. (Think of an unruly Slinky and you get the picture). There was an extra flat gasket in the pull-out hose coupling. The instructions aren't explicit to say only one is required. It would have been impossible to make up the joint with the two in there. There were some extra mounting parts, but it is a mystery as to when these would be needed.
In summary, this appears to be a great faucet, but be patient and careful in the installation because the instructions are of limited help.

This product fairly easily though it helps to have two people. Pay attention to the directions, because they include a small wrench for tightening the sprayer connection ... without it, the sprayer line will leak. Product works well, with absolutely no problems.
