The TOTO TL960SLD Lav faucet on a 20X17 Toto Lav
The drain looks pretty solid
This is all lovely Terry until we see the price.
So what is the price for this fabulous set?
$20 per chance? Or 20 times that?
Don't worry Ian, way more then you would spend.This is all lovely Terry until we see the price.
It's nice to see something this heavy, wrapped in a velvet bag, and the placed in the box, with a heavy brass drain that has been chromed.
Not your typical Home Depot stuff with plastic drains and tech support web sites that disappear after you buy the faucet.
I won't install Home Depot house brands.
My time is worth more than that.
This is more your stuff.
Only eight years old and already rusting.
We also installed three Toto Vespins there, skirted bowls with Sanagloss.
We removed the Mansfield Alto toilets that Consumer Reports is in love with.
Question: Why are the polished brass Toto faucets a lot more expensive than the (pictured) polished chrome ones?
Aren't the polished chrome ones, chrome-plated brass?
It is a nice faucet: I am in the process of installing one as I type this. Funny thing about this faucet: it comes with attached flexible supply lines that have a 1/2" fitting on the end, as opposed to the 3/8" fitting that I assumed it had when I installed my 3/8" supply valves. By any chance, would you know if someone makes a 1/2" male x 3/8" female adaptor with a chrome finish, or do I just use a 1/2" nipple and add an additional length of flex line to go from the 1/2" to the 3/8" (assuming they make a flex line with 1/2" female x 3/8" female)?
Polished brass needs a coating of something on it otherwise it will quickly tarnish, so it's likely more steps. Some places use an ion-spatter applied finish that isn't really brass, but looks like it. Again, more steps, more costs.

OK, 1/2" nipple connecting regular supply line worked just fine. THanks
