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: Kathy
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.

Are there any differences between K-596 and K-R596? The specifications appear to be exactly the same.
Asked by: verbocity
to Kohler Expert Laura: the description of K-R596 on homedepot.com states it has Docknetic. homedepot.com is wrong?

Deckplate optional or required?

The specifications say that mounting is with deckplate; however, the picture shows no deckplate. Is deckplate mounting optional?
Asked by: Baad Reed
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: Jamie H
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.

Simplice Single-Handle Pull-Down Sprayer Kitchen Faucet with DockNetik and Sweep Spray in Matte Black is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 282.

It has a quirk that I feel is a design flaw. The upper button on the sprayer turns the flow OFF, not ON. Thus, the sprayer flows continuously until you depress the button. This is the opposite of how I would like it to work. When I want to rinse a dish, I would like to push the button to turn the spray ON; releasing the button should turn the flow off. But this is NOT how the button works. As a consequence, I'm disappointed in the faucet and would not have bought it if I had known about this quirk.

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.

I thought that this was a great improvement from my old faucet and boy was I wrong. First of all after maybe two years the thing started to fall apart, with the sprayer the button fell out. Then the whole goose neck started to leak and that is where the real fun started. I was committed to rid this defective faucet from my home until I realized that the iron washer was seized!? The rusted through and made it almost impossible to remove the ring holding the whole apparatus in place, not only did the faucet leak, but whoever on the design team thought it was a good idea to use a iron washer was very troubling . I did however call Kohler and they did answer the phone and they told me to spray white vinegar and I may have to end up using bolt cutters to pry the ring off the shank... Alas, this worked the I now was able to rid this terrible faucet from my home.

Now that we are familiar with features both my wife and I love it. Very smooth movement between sink bowls and my wife loves the spray feature with the water shut off at end of the spray so she doesn't have to reach back to the faucet handle to shut off the water stream.

Called Kohler and they think it's defective; they're sending me a new sprayer head. Hopefully the next one is better. 360 degrees swivel is unnecessary. Even with a deep sink, faucet height causes lots of splatter.

However, after I found out that I can put the control in the middle (I am left handed) and not just on the right, like most of them seem to be nowadays, I gave it a try.

The facet box seal was broken and no soap dispenser. No problem as I wasn't going to use anyway. Just hoping all parts are there when installed after granite is in.

Nice faucet and like the pull-down sprayer but the sprayer hose started leaking about 2 years for no apparent reason. The hose was not rubbing on anything and is not kinked. I would only recommend if they replace hose with a more robust version.
