Pretty easy to install, only complaint is that it's not very clear which side is hot and which side is cold where the braided line connect to the faucet. Otherwise this is fantastic... it has more valves than you can shake a stick at, is very high quality and looks awesome.
Esthetically the unit is best situated on an island or against a wall backdrop in a larger space. My immediate reaction after installation was "overpowering". I fought temptation to return the unit for this very reason. BUT...it's sleek lines, uniqueness, functionality, and [ultimately] presence went far in convincing this purchase had been the right decision.
The water pressure is AMAZING. I went from having a timid water flow to funneling the Niagara. The under spout space is astounding. Pots that previously required filling using the bath tub for lack of under-faucet fit are now easily accommodated.
Installation - the hot/cold water lines are not clearly marked for hookup so a re-pass was necessary.
In the final analysis, I'd build a kitchen space around it! :9)
a great value for a high quality commercial style faucet
This is a huge step up in both quality and functionality from the Moen and PF pull-out faucets in most home centers for just a small bit more money. I bought the chrome finish one, but it appears from the packaging that more options are available. Fit and finish is very good and assembly was pretty easy even with the almost useless instructions. The last item in the pre-installation steps is a recommendation for hiring a plumber (which I'm not). None of the numbers in the installation steps seem to correspond to the proper parts. It would be nice if the instructions indicated which holes in the base is for the hot water line. Also, you'll want to find or make a 10mm wrench with a 90 degree bend at the head to snug the water lines since the attachment is recessed a inch or so into the body. Minor issues in my book!
We have yet to have this installed as we are starting our kitchen remodel in the next few days, but I know it is going to look great ! I love the fact that it has 2 faucets so you have options..Seems really well made, sturdy and strong..If there are any problems, I will report back.
