Porter Two Handle Kitchen Faucet with Spray
This is a nice looking, but low-end faucet. The gasket does not seat well and I will have to do some caulking. But the worst part is that the plastic "diverter" is air-hammered into the spout fixture. The instructions tell you to remove it with a coin to flush the system before use. The coin immediately breaks off the ears of the diverter. Very cheap. If they wanted it removed to flush the system, why not pack it loose in the box and not welded into the system???

Not as heavy made... like my last Delta
The sprayer leaks a little after the water is turned off.

Great features, one fatal flaw with diverter valve
Overall great looks on this faucet convinced my husband and I to purchase it.
We had a different opinion however, after almost completing the install. Last step is to remove the diverter valve and flush the system. You are supposed to remove valve with a quarter. Plastic valve immediately broke.
Had to remove entire faucet and drive back to store to return. I did want the faucet so we asked the head of the plumbing dept. to remove the diverter for us before we left the store. He was unable to remove it without breaking it also. Why would you put it in there if the installer has to take it out when installing?
Ended up taking another home and not flushing system out as entire was spent on project and we just wanted to be done. The water flow is less than the faucet it replaced and I am left wondering if it is because the system was not flushed. I hope diverter never needs to be fixed as I don't think it will ever come out in one piece. Whole faucet probably will need to be replaced at that point.
Really too bad, it is a very nice faucet otherwise, but diverter really tanked my ratings of it,
