    I like the old Chicago Faucets. Always easy to repair parts for the new faucets works in faucets built in 1918 and 1918 parts will work in the new ones. Well not the new Gerbit ones but the ones that still used the traditional Chicago cartridge/stem.

    * Dictates that purchase made of Pegasus brand faucets are warranted for as long as the faucet works properly. Once faucet malfunctions, the warranty and availability of parts are gone.

    Single faucet handle I prefer Delta. My kitchen has one of the pull-out handle models, one thing I like is the hard plastic "diverter" button as compared to the rubber covered buttons on other models. My bathroom remodel has Kohler faucet, two handle that looks nice, nothing bad to say about it right now.

    this has been a very useful thread. Thanks. I'm just wondering what are the issues with Price-Pfister...other than the huge parts listings that is? Should I avoid them? I'd prefer to spend a little more to have something I won't have to repair in 2-3 years. Also, another post mentioned Danze. What's everyone's thoughts on those? I'm in the middle of looking for fixtures and had chosen Price-Pfister Ashfield for the look, but a plumber friend of mine said they're "crap." So now I'm looking for second opinions and opinions on the Danze. Seems like Delta's the way to go, but would like more input for folks in the know.

    Cheers,
    Mike

    Default Chicago Faucets, absolutely

    Best damn faucet ever made. The Quaturn® compression cartridge was a revolution when it was invented 100 year ago, and still is one of the best on the market. Plus, every single Chicago faucet is designed, engineered, cast, machined, polished, plated, assembled, quality controlled, packaged and shipped in the U.S. of A. (except the Geberit faucets from Europe that Geberit is trying to slip past us under the Chicago label -- easy to identify, though.)

    Anybody ever see a defective Chicago Faucet? Anybody?

    Just "log-in" and take the poll.
    How did Pegasus get in this group. It's a store brand from HD. How about a category for "other" [Name]? How about Symmons, Chicago Faucet? Does anyone use Wolverine any more?

    Anybody have any opinions about Hansgrohe/Axor? I'm having trouble finding something I like, and so far, Hansgrohe seems to be the only manufacturer with a full line that meets my needs: tub filler with diverter for hand-held shower and 9" spout; balanced shower control with diverter for separate hand-held shower; 2 wall-mounted lavatory faucets. They need to be modern/contemporary design.
    Also, what about their universal rough-in box?

    The HansGrohe is a good brand. And the I-Box lets you rough in and make changes later.
    Some of their product line is made in the US.

    I have liked Toto's quality and thermostatic performance so far, but it will be many years before I can comment on reliability.
