This is a wonderful faucet, and a wise purchase. Since the reviews had been so helpful to me in making a decision, I decided to write a thorough one to help someone else. I spent a great deal of time researching faucets, and finally decided on this one. Why? My double sink measures 16 front to back on the inside. This gooseneck reaches further into the center. The spray head has NO buttons, but works by twisting the head, giving it a variable between spray and aerated, so you can have spray and solid stream at the same time. Cant do that with the ones that have buttons, as they are either one or the other. I do not like buying something without actually seeing it. I was not disappointed though. It came in good time, and when I opened the box, I was amazed at what I was seeing. This faucet is heavier and far more substantial than what the pictures seem to portray. Very well made. The gooseneck and faucet valve are much heavier and larger than what I thought the picture showed. I am one of those guys that wants to do everything himself rather than pay good money to someone else who could not do it any better than I could. My old faucet was coming apart. I knew that I must replace it, but just did not want to go through doing so. Being 76, working on my back in a cramped space under and behind the sink just was not appetizing to me. Well, I was right. It was a difficult project, but most younger men could do it very easily. This was something I had never done before. Now that I have learned how to do it, it would be much easier and faster if I every had to do it again. I must have been like two hours getting the old one out. And then another two hours getting the new one in. After studying the instructions, and looking at all the parts, everything was obviously rather intuitive, so that was not a problem. It was just getting to everything with the right tools that could be used in the hard to reach space that made it difficult. A couple of tips: If you are replacing a faucet, forget using any existing feed tubing. GET NEW. The grommet washers / seals on the old ones will be molded out of shape, and you will have terrible leaks for sure. Do not try to save money by using them. It will more than likely just cause you time, wasted effort, and aggravation. (Do NOT ask me how I know that!!!) Measure how long you will need before buying. Too long will not be a problem. Too short WILL BE!!! The room with mine between the faucet and backsplash was about two inches. That is not enough room to work the handle that turns the water all the way on. I angled it just a bit by pulling it toward me so that the handle would clear the backsplash. So, that was not a problem, and looks just as good. I like to use the head in a hands free hanging down position, as it causes less splattering around the basin. This you cannot do if you put the included weight on the line. I left it off so I could dangle it hands free. If the weight is on the line, it will pull the head back in immediately when you let go of it. I just slide it up by hand when I am done, and that works just fine. I hope this has been of help to someone. Whatever, this is one fine faucet, and you need not worry over purchasing it. And, I do not think you can beat the Overstock price on ANY faucet anywhere.
