Kohler K-10215-4 Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from classic Very clean and classic. We had to use the escheon provided, and it worked great. Has a very nice height to the faucet. My only issue is the rod that you pull up/push down to drain hits the hardware underneath the sink (the bolt that attaches the faucet to the sink) so the ros ends up crooked. I tried to adjust it the best I could, but still a slight issue. And there is always a water droplet that hangs after you wash your hand. It stays there forever!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from missing a few key details I bought this unit in June 2011. The look and finish are nice. Generally the quality of the main unit seems sound. The pop up drain assembly had two problems. First a seal was missing. The instructions say "make sure seal is in place". But no seal was provided and sure enough drain water just leaked out. So I was able to trim the OD on a standard rubber hose washer, stuff it under the nut, and it sealed. Second, a plastic ball was press fit onto a rod but in the wrong position such that the rod end hit the housing. I was able to stack sockets on the rod and hammer the ball to the correct position. The fact that these items were missed is disturbing and has changed my opinion of the kohler brand for life.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Faucet Issue with Drain I installed the faucet and drain per Kohler's instructions. I could not seem to get the drain rod tight enough to prevent leaking. Tried several different adjustments. When I made the nut tighter on the back side of the drain, the drain would bind and not pop up- open. After playing with it on and off for a couple of days, I realized the portion of the rod that goes inside the drain that pushes the stopper up and down was too long. I cut about 1/8 of an inch off the end and solved the probelm. Faucet Direct was a great place to shop an purchase the faucet and sink from. Kohler need to be made aware of the drain issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Forte Faucet We love the two Forte Kohler sink faucets we bought from FaucetDirect. I'm attaching a picture. The plumber who installed them was quite complimentary of the quality and ease of installation. We are pleased with our shopping experience with FaucetDirect.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't last long Ok, so agree with all the reviews that this is a beautiful faucet. It is. And it is solid construction. However, and I hate to be a spoil sport, but ... We bought this faucet when we had our bathroom remodeled two years ago. We figured, it's Kohler and it's pricey, so it should last a lifetime. It lasted less than two years. About 6 months ago it started leaking and the leaks got worse. A plumber told us we probably needed a new one. Given the price, I decided to pull it apart and see if we couldn't just replace washers or gaskets. Try it and you will see you probably can't. To get at things, you need a special socket wrench that probably only the factory has. So basically, you have to pitch the thing and buy a new faucet. Now maybe we just got unlucky and had a lemon. But it's colored my view about Kohler.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Choice We checked local businesses, home improvement stores & online looking for the perfect faucets. Comments for this faucet in the brushed nickel that we wanted were the best and we liked the style. We decided to buy one for each bathroom - and we LOVE them! We had them installed with our granite counters and the plumbers had no problems. They are smooth operating, they look beautiful and are easy to care for. The only thing is that the drain lever at the back projects backward, and ours almost touches the mirror behind. It would be nice to have a little space to make it easier when cleaning the mirror. Other than that: it's PERFECT !!! -- And FaucetDirect.Com was phenomenal - it was our first experience with them, too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy install/quality parts This is a heavy gauge faucet. It installed easily and works without problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from minimalist appeal I installed 2 of these in the master bath with new granite counters. The faucets are a great improvement over my previous 2-handle sets. Take up less space on the countertop and easier to clean. Sleek and unobtrusive. One of the aerators was not functional and Kohler sent another one immediately. Also very pleased with the staff at faucet direct, and incredibly speedy free delivery. Best was the price, over $50 less (each) than our local shops. Plumber could not believe what I paid!

  • Do you have a Roman Tub faucet that would compliment this sink faucet?

    A. Thank you for your question! The Kohler K-10215-4 has a recommended Roman Tub Filler set from the same collection: Kohler K-T10292-4.

  • Is the construction all metal or metal/plastic combination?

    A. The Kohler K-10215-4 is all metal except for a ceramic cartridge.

  • Are the parts that connect with the p-trap, such as the tailpipe plastic. If so, how may this affect the product's durability? Are there products of similar price and design that are not plastic?

    A. The Kohler K-10215-4 comes with a pop up drain that has a metal tail piece.

  • can this be installed without the Escutcheon ?

    A. The Kohler K-10215-4 escutcheon is optional and not required. I hope this helps!

  • I was told by a plumbing shop in our town that if I ordered a faucet on line that the inside quality (the parts) is not as good as they would have so it can be sold cheaper. Is this true?

    A. We order all of our products directly from the manufacturer. They will be exactly the same product that you will find at any storefront locally. We take great pride in knowing that the products we send out to you are the highest quality products available.

  • What is the flow rate?

    A. The Kohler K-10215-4 has a 1.5 gallons per minute maximum flow rate.

  • Are the parts that connect with the p-trap, tailpipe, etc. plastic? If so, how does this affect durability? Is there any product similar in design and price where these are metal parts?

    A. The Kohler K-10215-4 uses metal connections. Not only does Kohler use metal whenever it is best, but they also back everything up with a lifetime warranty.

  • Does the sink come with a stopper and drain?

    A. The Kohler K-10215-4 comes with the full drain assembly.

  • Is this faucet lead free?

    A. The Kohler K-10215-4 is designated as low lead compliant.

  • Where is this line manufactured?

    A. Kohler's main production line is located in Kohler, Wisconsin. Though, they do have international product locations in Mexico and China.

  • Does the faucet come with a drain and stopper? I've never replaced a sink before! Thanks

    A. The Kohler K-10215-4 does include the metal pop up drain.

  • My bathroom has an 8" center sink. Can I use this single faucet replace a double handle?

    A. The Kohler K-10215-4 is comes with an optional escutcheon plate for installations up to 6.5" centers, so it would be too short to fit an 8" installation. Most Kohler faucets can be accompanied with an 8" escutcheon, though, depending on collection.

  • What comes in the box?

    A. The Kohler K-10215-4 has the faucet and optional escutcheon and all necessary hardware for installation.

  • What is the difference between the K-10215-5 and the K-10216-4?

    A. The Kohler K-10215-4 has a metal pop up drain. The K-10216-4 has a plastic pop up drain.

  • What valve do i order for this faucet?

    A. The faucet has an internal valve therefore one is not needed to be purchased.

  • Does the pop-up lever extend at an angle or straight up? How many inches needed to extend lever? I will have a granite backsplash and won't have a lot of space.

    A. The Kohler K-10215-4's pop-up lever can be pulled back to a maximum of 6". However Kohler said that you can actually adjust this to whatever length you need to accommodate for the spacing to your backsplash.

  • Does the drain assembly have to be installed?

    A.

    The drain does not have to be installed. However, if it is not installed there will be hole where the pull rod is to be.
