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.

Kohler K-10273-4 Reviews

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 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 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Faucet and Order Process This faucet is high quality and a wonderful style. It looks fantastic on my granite vanity top. After looking at many faucets, this is a great value...Kohler doesn't disappoint. I installed a different brand faucet in another bathroom and now wish I had purchased another Kohler. Shipping was incredibly fast and I could easily track my package. I highly recommend FaucetDirect and would definitely order from them again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from faucet is nice however NEVER NEVER Buy the cheaper plastic pop up drain assembly. Our plumber installed and both sinks are continuing to leak (we bought two ). We now have to pay for metal housing that he will need to go get to replace the plastic parts. :( NOT HAPPY

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Attractive faucet I was a little concerned that a couple of people felt the water stream that resulted from this faucet was not ideal, but I have not had any complaints with the two that we had installed in the master bath. I like the look in the brushed nickel and the price was very reasonable. One thing I have concluded is that it is not neccessary to match every sngle bathroom fixture in the same line - we bought a different line Kohler for other fixtures in the same bathroom and they blend in just fine. I do find that Kohler has good quality in all the fixtures we did purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice faucet and problem resolved Nice faucet but our plumber noticed a imperfection on the spicket--Faucet direct shipped a new one right away and was here in 2 days (plumber was coming back to finish other items on the job so not a problem) The defective unit was sent back at no expense to me-would use Faucetdirect anytime

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Purchase I really like this faucet and the overall purchase experience was good. The only thing I do not like is the water stream from this faucet seems extremely limited and inconsistent in comparison to my other Kohler faucet. The stream doesn't shoot out nice and straight like i would expect, I removed the internal aerator to increase the volume and get a more consistent stream.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fancy Lu In an effort to match my existing chrome fixtures to give my guest bath an update, I selected Kohler for its reputation and the Forte series for its look. The new handle and faucet make the room look totally updated. It installed with ease and is of excellent quality, unlike the kitchen fixture of another brand that cost considerably more. Nice lines, modern look. It seems the water comes out in a stream that is a bit strong and splashy, but no leaks and no problems otherwise. Love the new look, recommend highly. Ordering off the web at Faucets Direct gave me a great price and quick delivery to the front door.

  • can I order a METAL pop-up drain to replace the plastic one that comes with this faucet? I prefer metal. If so, what is the item #?

    A. The Kohler K-10273-4 metal drain part number is 1037022.
  • Does the water spray out in different directions or is it a steady stream as in other comparable faucets

    A. The Kohler K-10273-4 has a steady water stream.
  • is the plastic drain less durable & does it cheapen the look of the faucet?

    A. The Kohler K-10273-4's drain is just as strong as any pop drain Kohler makes and the finishes match so it wouldn't have a noticeable difference.
  • is there a reason to choose a plastic drain over a metal one? or the other way around? can a metal drain be used if there's PVC pipe used for the drain pipe?

    A. It's really personal preference or codes for your particular installation whether to go with metal or plastic. There is not real advantage to one or the other other than the material itself. A metal pop up would be fine for PVC, but plastic would be better suited as it's lighter.
  • is there any difference between the two handles? One is labled "cold" when I install as labeled the handles turn opposite of the faucet I'm replacing. I would like to switch the two.

    A. The Kohler K-10273-4 handles are switchable. If you have any other questions please call 800-375-3403 x725 for Jordan. I hope this helps.
  • reach of faucet

    A. The Kohler K-10273-4 has a 5.13" reach.
  • what is the difference between the K10273-4 and the K10272-4?

  • Do I need to buy the valve ?

    A. The Kohler K-10273-4 comes with the valve and pop-up drain with tailpiece.
  • is valve assembly included with K-10273-4 model?

    A. Yes, the Kohler K-10273-4 does come with the valve assembly included.
  • What is the difference between this faucet, the K-10273-4 and the K-10272-4?

    A. The Kohler K-10273-4 has a taller spout height of 4.88"
  • Does this faucet come with a metal or plastic drain ?

    A. The Kohler K-10273-4 comes with a plastic drain.
  • Is the handle base round at the bottom or hexagonal?

    A. The Kohler K-10273-4 has round handle bases.
