Newport Brass 948 Reviews
Rated 3 out of
goodnews, bad newsThe faucet itself is gorgeous - I use it maybe 2 dozen times a day - it has made my life so much easier - water right at my fingertips while I'm cooking, a burner freed up now that I don't need a teakettle on the stove, no need to run back and forth to the sink to refill the teakettle.
So what's the problem? It leaks. Dribbles water all over the stove after it's turned off.. I've learned to position the faucet so it drips into something on the stove top, not
onto the (gas) burners or down into the belly of the oven.
Don't get me wrong, I still love it.
I suspect what happened is that I researched this project thoroughly before calling my plumber. He was hesitant and said the least expensive faucet to my lenght/color specs was going to be $450+. So I asked him if I could buy it and he would install it. Yes. Well as you know I paid considerably less buying the faucet from you, and I'm fearful what I inadvertently did was deprive him of a markup. Anyway, when it was installed, and the worker could not get it to stop dripping, (it eventually does stop) he just remarked that 'you get what you pay for' - implying
that I had bought some sort of inferior product. By this time I had figured out I might have paid them less than I might have, and did not want to press them for more labor to try to remedy the problem or trust their diagnosis and uninstall and return/exchange the faucet for another one, and start over with the plumber and incurring more labor charges.So while I am 95% happy with the outcome, I can't really say whether the remaining problem is with the product, or the installation, and I'm not likely to find out. Probably not the review you expected!

second valve is neededWe wanted to avoid a gangly looking pot filling by buying this one. This one looks great and we thought the expansion was cool. However, the expansion traps water and drips on the stove when retracted. Either a second valve is needed or getting the fixed version is a better bet. No airator makes this very splashy as well.

Looks good...wouldn't buy it againWe purchased this pot filler 5 years ago when we were building our house. We also purchased matching faucets, dish dispensers, etc. The pot filler itself is beautiful and I love the antique brass finish. Unfortunately, I have had the same problem as other reviewers. When turned on, the potfiller doesn't have a steady stream and splashes everywhere. Also, when you turn off the potfiller it continues to drip. I did have a plumber come back and look at it. He adjusted the pot filler so it doesn't drip as much but because it doesn't have a nice stream, I don't use it. Looks good but would buy a different brand.

missing something very important!this particular product has NO aerorater. Sprays everywhere. We have to put a funnel under it to use it. Therefore, we just end up filling our pots in the sink. This is a ridiculous piece to omit. Why?
