Should I pay $400 for a kitchen faucet?

Posted 07-24-2009 at 05:27 AM by faucetman886

I answered a thread on GardenWeb/bathrooms the other day where a writer was asking for opinions or permission to pay $400 for a Grohe faucet she was in love with. As I have written in past blogs faucets can be a very personal purchase and involve a lot of emotions. After all a housewife may spend more time with her kitchen faucet than any other item in her day to day life, including her husband. With this thought in mind it should be pleasant to the sight, comfortable in the hand and certainly should...

WHAT IS kERDI?

Posted 07-22-2009 at 11:49 AM by faucetman886

The following is cited from an article by Schluter-Kerdi, the manufacturer of this system, and included in today’s blog with my thanks for using it and giving them full credit for the information herewith....

What about tankless hot water heaters?

It is a new technology that I have no experience with and because it is ill advised that they be installed by the layman DIY’r my friends at National Builder Supply have chosen not to sell them. But when has my not knowing about something kept me from finding out information and passing it on? Much of the following info comes from the website, http://www.tanklesswaterheaterguide.com/ to whom...

Does your faucet have a lifetime guarantee?

Posted 07-16-2009 at 05:16 AM by faucetman886

I see many inquiries and discussions, on the many forums I follow, about leaking faucets. As you read these discussions you begin to see that there is not always one simple answer as to why a faucet leaks. In the old days when faucets were simple it was just a bad washer or something that had loosened that could have just been tightened.

Hard water and one solution

Posted 07-15-2009 at 09:26 AM by faucetman886

With the popularity of my 3 blogs on “What’s That Smell?” one of the issues has been what to do about hard water situations. This is a subject that , I personally, have never had to deal with and admit that my knowledge is limited. Through my blogging activities I have managed to establish some new friendships with folks in various elements of the home improvement business in which I am not well versed. One of these friendships and cooperative efforts comes from Ian Adams at Crawford Supply. They...
