The handle to our water faucet broke. I know in our rental they just kept on breaking, so I want to get a good one. What brand(s) are considered the most rugged/best?
Looking for a 1-hole faucet with handle on the top and pull-out spray nozzle like this:
I’ve never seen a handle break. They should last a really long time.
We’ve had two break
I guess we get overly excited to shut off the sink. Most of the swing handles like above have a small 3/8"x1/4" piece of metal connecting them. That means that it’s high torque with repeated wear. Not surprised that they break. Rotation handles probably last longer.
Haven’t seen one in my lifetime
Any brand in HD will do. Buy two sets since you tend to break them
@Terri have you considered a touchless kitchen faucet? I find mine very handy.
I saw them, but no. I’d like the water to be on when I want it on, and off when I want it off.
BTW: I ended up going with a Moen. The Delta was $100 more and seemed crappier.
But both were not as solid as the Kohler that I pulled out. I’ve actually saved the parts and may try to get a new Kohler of the same design (didn’t have my color anymore though) and replace the inside parts that broke.
