20 years ago, I needed a new kitchen faucet, stopped by the wholsaler,
picked up a decent 2-handle with sprayer ($30). Don't even remember how the
old was hooked up, put some copper stuff together, threaded it up and
sweated 4 joints.
That old faucet was doing funny stuff, looked muy mucho long in the
tooth last week. HD had a Glacier Bay 808-394G on sale for $40. Had
'brass waterways', looked like a comparable unit, so I got one, a
couple in-line shut-offs and flexable connectors.
Spent Wed. afternoon knocking rust in my eyes with the basin wrench
etc. Got it all in, tested my connections. Turned it on. And the
hot leaked. Also goes Clunk-Clunk when I open or increase flow
of a valve, hot ot cold. No such noise for 20 years with the old
So I employ an allen wrench to remove the hot handle, and remove
The thing looks like garbage. Any experience with these or similar?
How much $ for a decent faucet these days? I haven't bought/installed
any such eqpt for many years.
