Kitchen faucet choice
 
I am getting a lot of conflicting information on faucets.I want to spend less than $200 on a pull out faucet with a base to nozzle reach of 9"in stainless steel. I have looked at Kohlers and Moens that get mixed reviews on durability.Any suggestions?

I always tell people if you have to spend a little more to get a name brand, get a moen. Free parts for-evar.

But is a Moen from HD/Lowes the same as from other Internet mail order/local plumbing supply or other sources ?

Been plumbing res com indust service for 32 years now in my opinon moen has falling to the way side a bit- the rotation swing on kitchen faucets breaks alott.Kohler and delta have surpass moen years ago with the dimond tec pvd pertection plus they put more effort in the bodies.Moen lav fauets are still ok the shower valve too all though old tecnolgy.Again kohler and delta have surpassed them.The only thing to look for in moen is the new dura last which is thier attempt to catch up

I put a Delta in my kitchen 20 years ago. I've fixed it once since. Diverter stuck and the spray didn't work. Parts were easy to find at the Orange Box. Repair was simple.
