I am confused - the first pic shows the pot filler having no shutoff valve, while some of the remaining pics (containing that specific component) show it with the shutoff valve.
I purchased this model of faucet for my kitchen last year (from one of the big box hardware stores) and LOVE it. My model does have the shutoff valve for the pot filler, which in my opinion is a valuable piece of hardware. Unless I am missing something, how else would you turn off the pot filler when you only wanted to run the extendable sprayer?
As far as feel, it is top notch. The faucet is quite sturdy. The operation is smooth like a well made piece of hardware. The sprayer handle is a nice feeling rubber while everything else is metal.
Lime has caused some splatter from the aerator but a quick wipe with my fingertip seems to clean that right off, maybe once every few months.
Water pressure is excellent out of the sprayer, assuming the pot filler is off. With both on, pressure of the sprayer is just right for hand washing and other light spraying needs (plant watering, etc).
The sprayer also has a metal latch to keep it running all the time. Very nice if you are doing lots of rinsing or want to let go of the sprayer while working with food, etc.
Make sure you have a sturdy way to secure it because it is both tall and heavy. We have quartz counters and it is solid on those, not sure what laminate would feel like.
We did experience a leak from what seems like the base. When water collects (as it does when washing dishes, etc) at the base of the faucet it will drip down. Not sure if that is the fault of the seam from our counter top, which runs down the center line of the faucet, or the o-ring at the faucet base. Either way, we just keep a towel there because I’ve been too lazy to caulk…
Remember that if you have the hot/cold control as pictured (sideways) the cold is still on the right, if you were to face it head-on. So…cold is away from you and hot toward you. Confused us for a bit til we got used to it.
The sprayer handle is insulated, but if you have the hot water on all the way, the metal portions can get warm, so just be aware of this. Hasn’t been a problem - just something to remember.
When people visit and/or use the faucet they have good things to say. The kitchen is a centerpiece and this faucet is one of the centerpieces in the kitchen. I’ve not heard anything bad yet.
