Marielle Bar Faucet
Easy Easy Easy Installation
This is a great faucet. Works perfectly, looks great, and the copper finish matches our sink perfectly. Also comes with an oval eschutceon plate if you want to use it, but we didn't. Very good installation instructions; includes all potentially needed accessory parts for a variety of installation situations. I am by no means a plumber and I had it in and working in about ten minutes. You WILL want to buy a roll of teflon tape, and you will need a couple of good wrenches, but other than that no special tools are required. The mounting system is simple -- tighten one bolt and it's in. Then connect the water lines and bask in the glory. Lots of flexibility available for the depth of your counter. One thing to watch -- if you use an undermount sink, be SURE the lip of the sink doesn't intrude on the area where the mounting clamp (under the counter-- holds the faucet tight to the counter) will contact the underside of the counter. I have a copper sink and the lip of the sink ALMOST had to be trimmed because of the location of the faucet hole. The mounting clamp fit and worked perfectly, but just by a hair. So check carefully before you drill the hole for the faucet if you're using an undermount sink. Other than that, if you can use a wrench, you're good to go. Great product.

Perfect Bar Faucet
We had a plumber install this product in our new wetbar. It is a solid piece of hardware that looks and works great. The plumber was happy that the hoses were extra long to accomodate the thick granite countertop. It's fun watching people try to figure out how to turn it on since tipping the handle front to back changes hot to cold, but you have to tip the handle away from the faucet to actually get water.

PERFECT accent for our Wet Bar
this simple faucet is the perfect accent to our wet bar opposite our kitchen - it's a wonderful complement to the Hanover PF faucet on the kitchen sink. we love that it is simple and not over powering - great pressure and just the right size!

photo online misleading
The faucet is well made but the photo and description suggest that it is "antiqued" and it is really not very antique looking. The photo suggests it is. I would call the copper a pink color--not antiqued in any real way-- except at the joints. So, one should only buy this if you want a very slight antique look--not a dark antique look. It works fine. I just wish that it had fulfilled my desire to have a true antique look to better complement the copper sink from Mexico. It is really a bit too pink and the photo is a bit misleading.

Beautiful little faucet
I was looking for a bar faucet for our new peninsula bar sink in the kitchen that would coordinate with our existing copper faucet in our main sink. This has a brushed finish, while the original faucet is shiny, but they are far enough apart so not bothersome. Works well and the grandchildren are having fun with it!

Great faucet, definitely has the cool factor, handle operates smoothly, fast shipping/delivery. Agree with another reviewer about watching folks try to turn on the water - my builder has already asked on 2 different ocaisions if I turned off the main house water!

We are very happy with this faucet. The style and size are exactly what we were looking for, but couldn't find anywhere in stock. The quality and finish are impressive, especially for the price. I would definitely recommend this faucet and Faucet Direct.

great bar faucet
Like the single water control, makes it easy to clean glasses w/ one hand. Wish I could have found one with a little darker finish to match the sink.
