Build quality is fantastic. Installation was a breeze in granite. Mated with the undermount Blanco sink. Water pressure is adequate with the 2.5 gpm washer on the hose. The only issue I have is the reach of the hose with a deep undermount sink. You have to pull quite hard to overcome the spring tension to get down low. I fear this could lead to damage of the hose. If the spring was a tad more compliant I would rate it 5 stars. It is still a very good faucet for the money.
Though this faucet is practical, functional and well-designed, it's also very elegant. Installation wasn't difficult. The swivel, faucet, etc, are a smooth as butter. The only problem we had was that the hot water didn't work and when my husband unhooked the hot water line, the filter washer was torn around the edges. Perhaps he over-tightened, we don't really know. We couldn't find a way to buy the part on the Kraus website so I called the company to see if we could buy a couple of them. The company has great customer service! I was on hold for a bit but when the rep came on the line, he filled out a claim for me and registered our product. He told me they'd send out a couple if I replied to his email with our purchase receipt and number off the hose line. I did that right away and am hopeful they send the parts. In the meantime, we've used the old washer to keep the line from leaking until the replacement part arrives. Faucets aren't probably all that exciting to the average American who has always had hot & cold water at their fingertips but I find happiness in convenience and technology every day. This faucet and the company are both outstanding!
I am very satisfied with my faucet. It had all the qualities I wanted- stainless hose, extends far enough into the sink to avoid splash on the granite, spray turns on and off at the nozzle, not so high that it looks disproportionately large for my island and a support bar for my sink wiping towel. I purchased a second one for the laundry room sink- same quality and satisfaction :)
I enjoy the "drop down" look that it has and the spot free stainless steel. The only issue is that where I circled in the picture it seems to be a little loose? I'm not sure if that is just this particular one we bought, or if it's in the design. Overall, I'm happy with the purchase.
We had a terrible Tuscany faucet before this that sprayed all over the place. So far this one seems to be working properly and we're happy. The only complain is that where I circled in the photo, it seems to be a little loose. I'm not sure if it's just this particular one we bought, or if that's in the design. Over all I love how it looks and it seems to be working well!
