I bought a price pfister two handle kitchen faucet to please the better
half. I saw that Lowes did not sell parts which gave me concern but
anyway.... I bought it.
Now 9 months later it drips. I bought a new ceramic cartridge (not Lowes)
and installed it. it still drips. Went back to parts supplier. after only
a little cringing and whining, he gave me another one. I checked the seat
area and it appears smooth and flat. Installed the second cartridge. It
Called a several plumbers, all but one said they don't touch price pfister
"they're junk". Scheduled visit form the one shop who said they'd fix it.
The plumber obviously had never seen a ceramic cartridge. after some playing
around he BROKE the ceramic disk. He left. Fortunately, I still have my
previous replacement. put it in and of course it still drips.
any advice gratefully accepted. I'll look on the group for an answer.

bottle.) When i called them, they sent two replacement bottles, no

Ich habe keine Ahnung was das bedeutet, oder vielleicht doch?
These pfunny pfaucets have earned only my contempt. I must admit my
knowledge of them is probably out-dated. I became a Moen fan decades ago.
So you get to test the PP warranty.
I put Kwik-set locks and Price Pfister in the same category. Bright
marketing and dim value. I put Schlage locks and Moen fixtures in the
opposite category; no marketing but solid value. Not the most expensive,
for sure. But solid, long-term value.
You _BOUGHT_? a new cartridge? Why didn't you just ask PF for a free
replacement. The faucet is guaranteed and in my experience they will
send you any replacement parts you ask for with no/few questions asked.
Yeah, my girlfriend's brother-in-law is a master plumber and hates
Price-Pfister too. He doesn't care much for Delta either. He was
trying to steer me to Grohe for my kitchen but, damn, those things are
What does he think of Moen?
I must admit that I have had more than my share of trouble with my
single-handled Moen kitchen faucet. It is "maintenance intensive."
However, the cheerful staff at Moen promptly sends me replacement parts, at
no charge whatsoever, for my faucet. I have gotten cartridges, spout,
anything I needed.
My Moen bathroom faucets (shower and lavatory) have been flawless. Zero
maintenance. All I do is clean the scale, etc., around them. I've had them
for years without any maintenance needs at all. They get lots of use, and
never drip. Thus I feel that the Moen faucets with separate hot and cold
cartridges have superb reliability and performance characteristics. Heck,
nothing lasts forever, but these faucets are the most reliable products I've
ever bought. They're nice looking, and were reasonably priced.
I had a Delta in the kitchen, and got rid of it years ago. The sprayer
Another consideration of faucets, though the data might be hard to gather,
is their tendency to leach lead. I would like to get current data. Haven't
thought about it for years, though.
