Single Handle Kitchen Faucet with Side Spray from the Fairfax Series
A Fine Kitchen Faucet
We wanted to replace a faucet made by a well-known company that needed parts replaced on a regular basis, and the replacements were cheap goods. Having had good experience with several Kohler products, we opted for this model. We are very pleased so far (several months in). Everything about this faucet seems heavy duty and well made.
Installation, which I did myself, was complicated by the fact that the Kohler has attached feed lines that did not reach our under-sink shut-offs. After a plumber modified our supply lines, the process went smoothly.
The handsome, old-fashioned design fits perfectly in our 1920s home, the faucet and spray work perfectly, and I would recommend the model for anyone needing a new faucet in an older style kitchen.

The faucet is tall and pots fit well underneath. The pressure from the faucet is excellent. It looks great in the kitchen and works well too. I would like it better if the sprayer was more solid, it feels like it is plastic.

I replaced a Moen faucet with this and it was simple and easy. Very well made unit not the cheap stuff from the home centers.

This faucet is exactly what i come to expect from Kohler... and at a better price from Faucet Direct than what a design center could get,, in fact i ordered it thru a design center and after 4 weeks it still wasn t here ! Faucet Direct had it to me in 3 days,, and i ordered late on a Friday.The customer service was wonderful ,, I would highly recommend them. Barbara

See one-star review below.
We got the replacement faucet via two-day air shipping. It's installed and working fine now. Looks and performance are good.
As mentioned before, customer service with the replacement has been very good, though I haven't sought any compensation for wasted labor by the plumber. We're happy with the faucet now. I think we might probably still have saved money relative to buying from a store. So here's a five-star rating now. The average rating of three stars for the whole experience seems about right.

I love this faucet. It is hard to find gold finishes now but this is a very nice one and the faucet, sprayer and handle are very good. It is excellent quality. The delivery was prompt and I certainly will buy from this website again. The product and value are both excellent. A definite recommend.

When we first got the faucet it had too much pressure and it gave us a shower everytime we put something under it but I called build.com and they sent me a new aerator that was less gallons per second and now it works perfect and I love the faucet. It looks great. It is a 5 star now.

Big leak, lost labor $, return OK so far
Our Kohler faucet arrived on Monday, April 8 on time. We hired an experienced plumber to install it, but we found that the spout assembly spews water from both the bottom and the top.
Faucet Direct has been very good with customer service so far with a replacement and return in the works at no charge, but we are out 1.5 hours of the plumber's labor, plus we have no working kitchen sink for at least a day or two.
I will post another review after we try to install the replacement spout.

Love the new faucet set. However, the sprayer is not of the same quality and tends to drip. Otherwise, service - timely shipping - and follow thru was excellent. I will purchase from FD again.

need more detail views
This faucet is very good looking and functional.The flow is satisfyingly robust. My only complaint is that in the photos of it,it was not apparent that it came with an adorable little hot-cold sign on the top of the handle.I therefore bought one,since it would add such a nice little touch. I was surprised to find it came with it,and you can replace it if you need to. With an overhead shot f the unit,this confusion could have been avoided. I now have a spare part I hope I never need.
