Would seriously suggest getting a brand name... Lifetime warranty so you will never have to worry about cartridges or parts

I’d strongly suggest avoiding these cheaper faucets to prevent future headaches.

Bit of a backstory but here it goes….

As a new, young homeowner years ago, I purchased a Moen pull out style faucet from Home Depot or Lowe’s for my kitchen. It didn’t take too long until the hose connected to the pull out wand started leaking. With Moen’s lifetime warranty (I believe their warranty is now no longer “lifetime”) I received a replacement wand and hose.

It didn’t take long for the replacement set to start leaking in same spot. Again, I received complained to Moen and received another replacement set.

The problem is that those slow leaks which initially went unnoticed until they became larger leaks, damaged the underside of the laminate counter and the shelf in the sink cabinet.

It wasn’t until we upgraded our kitchen that a reputable plumber told me that brands like Moen, Delta sell “cheaper” faucets to places like Home Depot/Lowe’s for say $200 but sell similar, better products at plumbing stores.

When we did upgrade our kitchen, I went with Riobel, a Canadian company with faucets MADE in Canada (some are made overseas but they say they are particular with the contractors they choose..) The difference in quality is night and day. I would never purchase a cheap faucet again given the headaches and damage caused by them that I’ve had in the past with them.

Also, given that even name brand faucets can leak under your sink when your least expect it, flooding the kitchen floor and below, I would not chance it on a faucet of unknown quality.

Another thread i was following had posters who "got tired" of their $300+ brand name warrantied fixtures and suggested these $75 ones every 2-3 years would be better as they are 1/3 the price and "once they fail you'll want an updated fixture anyway"

Unsure, but i'm not willing to swap 10+ fixtures over my life owning a house. Cartridges are painful enough. Couldn't imagine tearing everything out to get to the faucet screw 11 inches deep in a 2 inch crevice between the sink and wall.

Yep, longevity and warranty is the worry. These cheap faucets tend to look great for six months to a year, then get shabby-looking and often break at which point you have to panic-buy a new one so you can use your kitchen, probably erasing the few dollars you saved buying this junk.

Sure enough the top review is:
It’s cheap compared to other similar faucets, but the sprayer broke after 6 months. Buyer beware. Would love a way to contact the buyer and ask for a replacement part, but Amazon doesn’t allow in this case. If you are reading this, please reach out to me - this faucet shouldn’t have broken so soon and I consider this a poor level of customer service and quality.

As a jaded customer tired of cheap stuff - unless you know how to replace those faucets yourself, get a high quality one and use it till the day it breaks down.

The same is true for shoes - all the high end brands keep one assembly line for high quality stuff and one for the cheap stuff. If you go for the the cheap stuff, you will be hurting your feet in the long run.

I installed Riobel in my kitchen after many troubles with Moen products from the big box stores leaking after a short period of time.

Kitchen faucets get used a lot every day so their performance should stand up to the constant use.

I’ve been really happy with the Riobel so far.
