We bought first a different (foreign-made) brand - the only one you stock in your retail stores (with the features we needed - overflow slot and pop-up drain). It leaked - had a bad solder joint. I found this one (made in the USA) at your website and ordered it. Amazing difference. About twice as heavy, all the features we needed and only a few dollars more than the first one we bought. Installed easily, works beautifully and looks great. Why don't you stock this one in the retail stores, instead of the shabby foreign made??
Stopped the leak at the brand new faucet drain connector right away!
April 19, 2015
Expensive comparing to similar looking item. I only realized the price at checkout. The brand new faucet I bought earlier kept slow leaking at the drain connector to the P shaped pipe below it. Tried everything, tape, T plus 2, no help. Finally I thought maybe the problem is the plastic drain assembly came with the faucet. Put this set on to replace the plastic drain, problem stopped right away, no tape, no goo, perfect! Will avoid plastic drain assembly from now on.

If you are reading this review you are obviously in search for a better product than Home Depot carries on the shelf. You have found it. This is a real quality product for a couple more dollars than the junk they stock on the shelf. I did a lot of research and found the most useful reviews on another site. However, I bought them from Home Depot for the same price and they did a next day delivery for free. I seldom write a review - but I am pretty excited with this find. I used it to replace 2 sink drains in my master bathroom. The original drains were of made by "who knows who" and never drained well and easily clogged at the stopper and I replaced several stoppers with no luck. It seems impossible to match stoppers with the original manufacture when you don't know who that is. And the bad news is many are not compatible with others. In addition you can't find a quality replacement stopper unless you go back to the original manufacture. So I opted for a total drain replacement looking for a quality product. They really look classy. Very subtle "KOHLER" is etched into the stopper. They work fantastic. Water seems like it is almost sucked down the drain. Easy install. Here are some installation hints from my own experience and from other reviewers. Take apart the 2 threaded pieces that come assembled and apply teflon tape. Past reviewers have found these may leak otherwise. (nothing in the installation manual regarding this). The stopper is adjustable by screwing the plastic piece and the top. The following is a trick that I really liked and found by accident. Instead of working hard to try to put the stopper rod into the plastic hole - just let the stopper rest on the rod. It gives you more lift for better drainage. It gives you an easier install. It allows the stopper to be able to be easily removed for cleaning later if needed. And It WORKS. No leaks when filling the sink. Maybe this isn't a trick, maybe this is how it supposed to be - the directions really don't address the issue.

Used to replace an identical one that had broken after 7years. Assembly was straightforward, though had to take apart and use plumbers putty in more places because of a leak, not due to this drain but where it was being inserted! First time to do this as a homeowner...saved me a call to a plumber!
I just installed two sink drain kits in my master bathroom project. The install was simple and everything works great. I purchased the two kits after installing the same type of drain kit on my powder room makeover. I am totally happy with my purchase.
