Soap and Lotion Dispenser
Good dispenser, marginal bottle
We purchased this soap and lotion dispenser along with a new Moen 7185 faucet and a sink. The dispenser appears to be high quality brass construction. I was concerned about having to take the bottle on/off anytime we wanted to refill it, but that's not necessary...you just pull the chrome dispenser button right off the top and pour soap in from the top. This unit would've gotten five stars except for the fact that the threads on the neck of the bottle were somewhat deformed with flashing leftover from the molding process around the edge. Even after trimming this excess flash off, the neck was somewhat oval shaped, so it didn't want to fit into the fitting on the bottom. It took a good 10 minutes of struggling to get the bottle lined up while pushing and twisting before I finally got it threaded in.

Nice soap dipenser
This is a nice, heavy, good-looking soap dispenser for sink mounting. It works well, and the pump guts are easily cleanable and replaceable if the need arises.
Time will tell if it holds up, but the weight and finish suggest that I got what I paid for, and it will continue to look great for many years. As to the pump mechanism, they're all the same, made of plastic, and will certainly fail over time.
As with all my stuff, maintenance is the key. Pull the pump out, fill a glass with warm water and stick the pump in and flush it a few times a year to help it stay new. You can also soak the whole thing in warm water with a bit of vinegar in case it really gets gummed up. Spending a few minutes a year doing this basic stuff can double the life of the pump mechanism.

The Moen 3944 soap dispenser is nice, heavy and works great. My order arrived in a few days and exactly as ordered with no surprises. I would highly recommend the Moen 3944 Soap Dispenser and FaucetDirect.com web retailer for future transactions.

We did our kitchen over and used a Moen faucet and soap dispenser....two years later the plastic shaft that carries the soap up from the well....broke off....wish I could just reorder a plastic shaft and not have to get a whole new soap dispenser.

Soap and Lotion Dispenser
Very nice dispenser. Dispenses just the right amount of soap and does not leak afterwards. The soap reservoir is huge. I rate this an A+.

Just what I wanted
I am very pleased with my soap dispensers. They sure make my life easier and look so nice in my kitchen and bathrooms.

Attractive but higher maintenance than expected
This is an attractive product and I am glad I got it to go with my other oil-rubbed bronze fixtures. However, I did not realize the finish needs to be maintained with car-wax. Also the soap seems to drip from the spout at times and turns green (I assume from corrosion to the internal metal of the spout). This happened within a few days of installation.

Nice Pump; Different finish than picture
Great deal on a great pump! Just a note - when I bought the pump, it had a 'CSL' in the name, which denotes Moen's Classic Stainless finish, which is what I wanted. The picture, however, shows their Stainless finish, which has gold undertones. I called Customer Service before I purchased and verified that the picture shows the incorrect finish. When it arrived, it was the Classic Stainless (without the touch of gold in the finish).

Broken early on
I have this soap dispenser in ORB and Moen Faucet 7590. Both the soap dispenser and the faucet handle have broken, and the common link appears to be the metal isn't up to repeated uses. Just not strong enough. The soap dispenser broke a few years ago, and now just recently, the faucet on/off handle has broken. But, to Moen's credit, I did call regarding both issues, and had the soap dispenser upper pump mechanism replaced at n/c, and I'm now getting the parts for the broken faucet handle at n/c. The trick w/b replacing the parts. In my opinion, these two products are not worth the money I paid.

Really Nice Product
Was impressed with the quality and construction of this product. Had a very nice, heavy feel-- not cheap/plastic, like other soap dispensers have seen. I purchased it for a client to use in her home, so I can not attest to how well it works. I have yet to hear a complaint from her, though, and she is an incredibly picky person.
