    I have really heavy calcium well water and the best faucets I've found are the Moen products. No drips at all, no washers to deal with. I've changed every faucet to Moen now.

    I have both Moen and Kohler. Don’t buy entry level grade go with solid brass. Might want to look at a water treatment system.

    moen honors their lifetime warranty. less costly than kohler, and are easy to work on. moen was my main seller as a plumber for 25 years. all fixtures' trim, ie., chrome plated outer facing are susceptible to calcium and hard water. it doesn't matter what brand so go for the less expensive - moen over kohler. do go for the brass valve underneath though and not the cheaper "builder's" versions.

    yes, what maxwell said... buy from a plumbing supply store, not HD or Lowes.... The guts are what counts.... same faucet is not the same faucet.....
    Just because it is legal, does not mean it is right.....

    Now that there will be a tariff on steel and alum, what will scrap prices do? Up or down? I going with up.

    Up I hope. That steel plant in Burbonnais only uses scrap steel for the melt.
