Downsides

Well, this is a nice looking faucet and have good features but few of the customers reported leaks. Now that may be because of poor installation or some defective parts, but good news is kohler offers a limited life time warranty of the faucet, with a great customer service. Also it features sweep spray feature which makes a high velocity water blade to sweep your dishes and sink. There are few people who find it very unpleasant, because they get water splash. But if used correctly it really helps in cleaning the hard stains on dishes and the sink.

I found extremely positive reviews of this faucet on faucet.com and amazon.com. At faucet.com, this faucet rated at 4.8 by 238 reviews, and at amazon.com the overall score by 190 people for this faucet is 4.2.

Only Few of them were not satisfied, they reported leaks after a while. But a lot of others are happy with the faucet. So this is not a widespread problem that is happening with all the others. Now it doesn’t mean that those who reviewed this faucet bad and leaky and of low quality, are not wrong. They might got a defected faucet, or defective installation parts, or simply they did not install the faucet right. Because many others are very happy with their purchase of this faucet, and i find this faucet a good quality product by Kohler.
