My wife and I are redoing a first floor powder room with new countertop, sink, faucet, lighting and wall color. We are very pleased with the look and feel of the faucet set. And the low price made the deal even better. thanks.

I purchased 2 of these faucets and was very disappointed in the quality. I have done a lot of plumbing so am not a novice. After I installed these faucets, they each had 3 common leaks due to poor design. One is the T filling that brings the water to the spout. It has a washer to seat it that pushed right through into the water opening when it is tightened - note this has to be tightened until the angle is right so that two hoses can be attached. It starts to tighten up and then it breaks loose as the washer slips. I tried using plumbers tape on the threads so it wouldn't have to be tightened as much but the threads are so coarse it still leaks. I ended up having to use a thread paste, put in a new washer and then tape the assembly with some leak sealing tape. The other two leaks are in the drain assembly. The first one is where the ball nut for the pop up drain is attached. Both of these leak as well as the metal drain pipe that screws into the drain assembly. The threads are so short that there is not enough to use teflon tape to stop the leak. These products have design flaws. Also both boxes came open with all internal parts in plastic that were torn open as well. I assume they are returns. Also, for some reason the handles on the faucets are at different heights and cannot be adjusted to all be the same. So there are different gaps between the body and the handle base.
This is an extremely well made faucet. It's got a highly polished finish and looks better in person than it does in the photo. I am a construction professional and I mounted it on a French Provincial cabinet with a granite top and it really makes the whole piece come together beautifully. The quarter-turn valves have ceramic washers which should mean many years of maintenance free service. I've seen comparable faucet elsewhere at up to 4 times the price. This is a great value if it is the look you're going for.
I bought two of these to replace an old pair of Price Pfister widespread faucets. These Kingston Brass faucets are very well made and have a good finish. While they are not as popular a brand, they cost about a half of what the name brands would cost. I cannot understand why some reviewers had such negative comments about their quality and or why they had so much trouble installing them. If you have an understanding of how widespread faucets work, it will not be difficult. It took about 25 minutes to install each set. The only real problem was removing the old ones. While all of the parts needed for the faucet are supplied, you will stil need to purchase your own supply hoses. All of the parts mate well and the completed installation was leak-free. I highly recommend these faucets.
From looking at the photo I expected this faucet to be fairly substantial and of good quality and I was not disappointed. Our plumber had no problem with the installation. We have only used it for a week but the handles and plunger work solidly and I expect they will last. The brass looks great with the other high quality brass towel rods in our guest bath.
The faucet is very nice looking and provides good value for the money. However, the faucet handles are very loose. I am concerned that the faucet may not last for very long. I hope I'm wrong.

This faucet really spruced up our bathroom. Installation is straight forward, but as with any faucet it is difficult to get into small places. I ended up taking out the sink and it was a piece of cake! Since I was replacing an older faucet, it would have been nice to know the exact "footprint" of the faucets, but it worked out okay. I would buy again!

I have 2 baths upstairs and liked it so much I got another. It is foreign and the connection at the tee is NOT US standard. You can NOT get a replacement. Worked but I was worried. You can not overtighten this connection or it will leak and it in an impossible spot.
I bought 3 of these at Overstock several years ago as replacements for all the 20+ year-old bathroom faucets in my home. These have been excellent faucets. They still look exactly as the day my husband installed them, and we have had no leaks whatsoever. Highly recommend these.
The product is very nice with the exception that the washers that go in the spout tee are totally inadequate. They are too soft and just roll up when the shank is tightened to it. Then the spout leaks badly at the tee. We had to go to the hardware store and source new washers that were stiffer and thicker. I was using a plumber so this little problem was costly in terms of time and cost to install. If you get new washers as soon as you get the set then you will be fine. Otherwise don't get this one.
I needed a nice looking faucet at a reasonable price to replace corroded ones in my master bath as I am selling my home. These faucets look great! I needed something that shows well and these fit the bill.
