Looking for suggestions/experiences with different brands of kitchen
faucets. Specifically, I am looking at some faucets by Denze and
Hansgrohe, but I don't know anything about these companies.
When we built our home, my spec was ONLY Moen faucets throughout.
Why? Past experience with their customer service department.
Their motto, "Buy it for looks - buy it for life" is no joke.
Their stuff is guaranteed for life. Though quite seldom, when I have
had a problem with any product of theirs and have called them, they
have sent replacement parts promptly without any hassles.
As for their cartridges, replacement is even faster! They last a long
time and when (if) they do wear out, just take the old one to the nearest
Moen dealer (eg: Home Depot) and they will swap it for free - doesn't
matter where the faucet was orignally purchased. Moen keeps their dealers
stocked with replacemet cartridges and some other minor parts as well.
Very few problems, and no hassle solutions when there were problems - that
is why I won't use anything else.
I have no affiliation with Moen, but considering all their stuff I have
purchased over the past few years, I should own a share in the company! ;-)
"I really think Canada should get over to Iraq as quickly as possible"
unless , like me you have hot water heated with a coil in the furnace.
water needs to be really hot on the coil to reach 3rd floor washroom.
water, over time melted the plastic parts that attatch the handle to
the faucet. it's like the bumper to bumper car warrenty - fine, but not
when it's always in for repair.
I used to recommend Delta. They closed their local plant and laid
off over 300 folks. Moved production out the country.
I no longer buy, recommend, or install Delta.
Keep the whole world singing . . . .

No doubt. The domestically produced fixtures in my home are trash and have
been so since day one. My biggest regret in choosing Delta is that I'll have
to repair ceramic tile when replacing my shower valves with Moen.
Kitchen faucet? Moen with retractible/integral hose. ~$250US
I would highly recommend Kohler. Not because any one brand is better than
the other,but because of
how they stand by their product. Most faucets have lifetime warranty,
but Kohler makes it easy. Ever
try to get a defective part replaced on a Delta? I had a Delta in my
Kitchen and after three years had a
leaky hose where it pulls out. I called Delta, and they would cover it
only if I had proof of purchase.
WHO KEEPS THAT on a faucet? Had two experiences with Kohler faucets (one
was a discoloration of the
handle, and the other was a leak). The leak was in a 4 year old faucet.
One phone call to Kohler and
without hesitation, they sent me a new part. The difference in looks and
price are about the same with
both companies, but I will always buy Kohler. I have no experience with
other brands because they are
either too low in quality or too high in price for me.
My main suggestion is DONT BUY DELTA. They know that people don't safe
the box or receipt for their
product, and therefore they make it hard to get a part under warranty.
