Product Technologies / Benefits:

  • Ultra-Glide Valve: Kohler has created the next generation of faucet valve technology with their Ultra-Glide ceramic valve. With high quality engineered ceramic materials this valve is built to be exceedingly durable and ultra smooth. With a lifetime of leak-free performance guaranteed, the Ultra-Glide is rated for up to 4,000,000 on/off cycles beating the industry standard by eight times. Unlike standard valves the Ultra-Glide confines the water below the valve stem, keeping the majority of components dry at all times; this reduces the corrosion and deterioration that affects most valves by eliminating the most common leak paths. Additionally this valve increases the turning radius of the faucet handles, allowing for greater and more pin-point control over volume and temperature of dispensed water. The Ultra-Glide represents the pinnacle in versatility, being found in bathroom, kitchen and even bidet faucets, it will last a lifetime and bring any home into the new age of faucet technologies.
  • Quick Mount Installation: With Kohler’s innovative valve technologies installation is now as simple as one-two-three. Simply place the faucet handles in the desired position on the counter-top and the valve cartridge threads directly in from the bottom with a locking nut. Now all that is required is the tightening of two mounting screws. In addition to the ease of installation, this process also gives an extra-secure mounting assembly. Where most faucet handles will loosen over time these handles will hold firmly in place for the life of the faucet.
  • WaterSense/Eco-Performance: To help make a difference on a global scale and further its role as industry leaders in eco-performance practices, Kohler has established partnerships with a number of environmental organizations, including WaterSense. Many Kohler faucets are equipped with low-flow aerators; meaning they use less water, while continuing to meet superior performance standards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classical look & sturdy Very classical look & sturdy construction. The family loves the brushed nickel finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful quality Purchased this faucet for a bathroom renovation. The faucet was easy to install. It has a beautiful chrome finish. I decided on Kohler because of the reputation of the company and the quality of their products at an affordable price point.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not that pleased This product lacked the quality I would expect from Kohler. It certainly seemed a lower end product. It did not have the solid feel I expected from other Kohler products and even the finish wasn't what I hoped for. If not for the hassle of returning and a time crunch, I would have returned it. Take your time picking out these products as you have to live with a mistake a long time. Product did come quickly from seller.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cost engineered to the point of failure I use Kohler items all the time. they make excellent toilets, and tubs. As to this group of bath fixtures less than impressed. When we were installing the faucet the collars set screws are really short so tightening the handles down was really hard and we were installing it on a silestone top with under mount 1 1/4thick. Then when we finally got it in and tightened the set screws; the main brass shut off valve body split. Other areas that were less than optimal Highly suggest they have one of their design engineers install this unit took 1.5 hours, not including installing the new piece when it broke. 1 The connection hoses and the junction mixer T No room to tighten down 2 Requires 2 people at several points of install to hold and set handles in place 3 The way the water supply hoses are tied into the valve base requires a really small wrench with very little room to tie in. Well as to the rest don't have time to go into the tub shower combo too many issues to list Build .com was great in sending out a replacement for the customer in a hurry

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kohler Forte I have always been happy with Kohler products. I have installed the Forte line numerous times. They install realitively easily and finish well. I don't believe I have ever had a client unhappy about a Kohler choice.
Date published: 2012-02-23
Rated 4 out of 5 by from looks great i'm afraid it has not been installed yet as this is a diy and the room is not ready. However, it came very quickly and looks beautiful. i'll 'check back in a few months update on install and function.
Date published: 2012-01-07
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice tap The instructions say "if possible install faucet and waste to lavatory before installing lavatory" when what it means is "if possible install faucet and waste to sink before installing sink". I wish I had known this.... The faucet and taps look nice. I wish the waste pipe was metal rather than plastic but it installed without leaking at the second attempt (lots of plumbers putty required). Overall nice for the price.
Date published: 2011-10-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Choice Attractive faucet and straight forward install. If installing with a one-piece sink/counter-top unit, be sure to leave enough room between the back of the cabinet and the back of the sink that allows for tightening down the faucet nuts.
