when setting up the supply lines for these pull down faucets, should the cold water line be used for the "up" position on the handle, or "down"? i've been to places where both are used

i typically use cold for the "up" position and pull down for hot water

is this correct?

I install this in the basement. It is a not bad faucet but not amazing, the finishes is good and the structure looks solid enough.
But somehow the minerals often trapped and blocked the filter about every half a year, I don't have this issue anywhere in my home. I guess that's the reason why many review complaint slow water flow.
For this price plus American Standard lifetime warranty, I am still happy.

In my home, and just in my general experience: Up, left, counterclockwise should be hot.

My Moen sink faucet is similar in style to this AS model and it's supply lines are labelled hold/cold so that the function is up hot and down cold.

I generally had good experience with Moen's warranty policy. I had 2 or 3 faucets that develop different issues, and Moen either mail me the replacement parts or replace the whole faucet. Not sure if American Standard will be similar in that aspect.

delta is American Standard sub brand, and usually low quality than AS.

I don't know about the quality of American Standard, but the labour and/or water damage involved in a faulty faucet may not be worth it.

american standard is fine.. i've had moen and delta faucets go bad as well, if the supply lines are tight and dry, a leak from the faucet head or bad cartridge shouldn't be too bad to replace/return

There is a great website site StarCraft Reviews that is a great resource for all the faucet knowledge. It's like the Wikipedia of faucets with the history of all the known brands, where they are manufactured, what their warranty is like, and reviews of the products. Highly recommended resource when purchasing a faucet!

FYI American Standard is no longer made in the US and has a subpar review:

The amount of spelling mistakes on that site is driving me nuts.

looks like it has decent amount of information, but the best way to get an idea of the product is to read customer reviews to see what to look for

+1 for Moen and Delta. Especially Moen, they have come so far and done fantastic.

American standard is okay. Not the greatest.

The cost of installing and uninstalling and the risk for leaks is not worth it. In this case it's not about the ability to return that dictates the purchase but reliability and performance.


Moens are gold.

what install cost? anyone with reasonable diy knowledge can install these things or look up how to in you tube; basically turn off the water main/shut off valves, install, turn on the water and check for leaks

for those who do not feel comfortable with doing it themselves, fine, hire a pro, but this isn't some knock off foreign brand and many may not want to pay the premium that delta and moen command

for the price and costco peace of mind, this is a fine deal

Maybe you have a lot of free time to do it yourself, but many people hire a plumber, for 1) their time is more valuable than the plumber charge, 2) if you over tighten the brass fitting or make some other mistake or the tube itself has a crack and fails, and you get a water leak, your plumbers liability insurance covers it if not related to material. 3) people keep returning stuff and abusing the Costco gaurantee. 4) the Moen sprayer doesn't get clogged up like this one does, so enjoy CLRing your sprayer every 6 months.

The Moen faucet I have (not sure which model) which I also bought from Costco last year, the water discharges in a concentrated round shape from the centre of the nozzle with option to spray when pushing a lever.

I prefer the old style which isn't as high. Unless I'm able to control the pressure of the faucet by closing the water valve under the sink....

Yep, I experience more spray because of the extra height of the arc.
I guess I love with it because of the looks....in this case, design over function. :/
