Double Handle Widespread Bathroom Faucet with Metal Lever Handles from the Monticello Collection
Fast service--two days!
We purchased the chrome/brass bathroom faucet to replace the same product -- 16 years old in our Master bathroom. The "hot" faucet was starting to leak. Based on the age of the faucet, we decided to replace instead of repair. Looks and functions well, except that: for the first two weeks or so, the water had a STRONG chemical taste/smell. My recommendation is to run the water for about 20 seconds (or longer initially) each time you use the faucet. Our faucet has been in use for roughly one month and the chemical taste & smell seems to be diminishing. This issue has been reported with various makes & models of faucets.

Moen faucet set
We got the product we ordered in good time, and our plumber was able to install it, despite the close quarters under the bathroom counter.
The problem was the handles. The new set came with metal lever handles, but Moen sells a replacement handle for this set which seemed to match the handles we already had in the bathroom. I assumed, therefore, that the handles would be replaceable and that we could just put on our old handles in place of the lever handles. But our old handles won't mount on the new set, so now our new handles don't match the other two faucets in the bathroom.

Well, after I ordered this faucet without the accompanying rough thing, my plumber advised me that I had to order the missing part. He also advised me that had I gone into any local plumbing supply store, I wouldn't have been able to purchase the faucet without it.
Wish I had known when I placed the original order. This site may not be for the truly plumbing ignorant like myself.

Beauty ain't cheap
Polished brass may be "out" but if the rest of the room is polished brass we stay with it. After toughing out the cost we were pleased with the result and prefer well over brushed nickel. Perfect transaction and timely.

Our home has the Moen faucets throughout. The master bathroom ones needed to be replaced (we have very hard water in our area) and it causes lots of corrosion. We were happy to see you had this style in stock and we bought two sets. The plumber had them installed in no time. They work great. In fact, we have much better water flow since we replaced the old set. Yipee! This seller provided quick delivery. Since I purchased two sets, we got free shipping.

Cheapen it up, who will notice?
I have two faucets of this model in a double vanity. The bathroom had to be remodeled to access some failed plumbing in the wall. The only part I tried to salvage were these beautiful chrome faucets. One was perfect, one had some corrosion on the brass rings. The rings were not all available on the Moen website, so I figured I would buy the top part (this purchase).
Moen has modified the product without changing the model number, making the visible faucets and plumbing more universal. That sounds reasonable, though parts may no longer match. They also replaced much of the metal with metal plated plastic. The difference in weight is dramatic.
I am able to use the new brass rings, but am still fighting with minor changes in the design.

Should have replaced the old busted one a long time ago. This washerless faucet is the way to go! Instructions were easy that my daughter helped! Too bad they didn't have the ol' antique brass finish.

Faucet Direct not only offers great savings but the order and shipping time were unbelievable.
This faucet is very good looking (ordered the chrome with gold)
and works beautifully.

I ordered 3 of these faucets in polished brass finish online and was amazingly surprised that I received them the very next day. Our plumber installed them today and they are absolutely gorgeous! Hope they last just like Moen advertises, "buy it for looks, buy it to last."

Good so Far
Plumber just installed this. He was a little leery about buying online, but saw no problems with it when he installed it. It was just installed a few weeks ago and we have encountered no problems with it either. (We bought the chrome with porcelain handles.)
