    Wow, that would suck big time. Even for a homeowner that would be a big waste of time and fuel. So far I've been lucky, and anything I returned defective or unused, was truly so and made the return clerk aware of its condition. I guess there are enough jerks out there though. I alway try to find a box or package that was not yet opened anyway.

    What about Kingston Brass co.? Have found a few faucets that I like the looks of, they aren't expensive and info says they are "solid brass construction" with 1/4 turn ceramic disk cartridge....

    Anybody? and yes.... I am still looking...

    I'm a Price Pfister guy, for what it's worth (I'm not a plumber but a general contractor, so its prolly worth a little less than some of these other opinions). I think that at their price point, they're very good. I don't think they're the best you can buy, but that comes at a price.

    I also like Delta in general. Not a fan of Kohler, kind of neutral about Moen. Never used Grohe or Danze, though I've been tempted a few times to try one out. I'd avoid the kingston brass, as mentioned above, as how will you get parts? You want those to be readily available locally... though its nice that some brands (such as Moen) will send free parts, do you really want to be w/o a faucet for a week while you wait for them?
