They designed it to cater to the higher end styles but ignore the installer of the product.
Pegasus reminds me so much of Danze it isn't funny. They have mounting brackets that are identical, very heavy brass and "I wouldn't want to service one down the road" mentality about them.
Parts for these won't be found, anywhere. You have to call a 1-800 number and then they kick you back to Home Depot. Then, you order the parts and they come to HD, not you.
Just imagine the downtime of those words above. Almost like a Kohler.
I have two boxes of these Pegasus faucets I've been given for free from HD on a reset of their faucet lines.
Amazing how much those faucets cost.
