Palo Single Handle Pull-Out Kitchen Faucet
Looks great, but no longer swivels
I've had this faucet for almost five years, but we've long had problems with it not being able to swivel left/right. Also, the rubber button on top (to switch between flow and spray) shows signs of wear (cracking). But it looks great in our kitchen!

Poor Quality on Spray/Stream Button
The gasket on the spray/stream button wore out very quickly. Can't replace the gasket without spending over $100 for the entire wand when you don't need it. Will never purchase Delta again. Not having necessary parts as a dang gasket isn't acceptable.

Easy to install, looks and works great a year later.
Not a plumber, but installation was under an hour. More important, my wife still loves it.

Great faucet but had an issue with pull-out
The faucet works as expected and looks great, the original installation was done by a plumber during a remodel but replacing parts was very easy and removing the internal cartridge (I wanted to see where the mixing/scalding control was) and cleaning the unit was a breeze. The only issue I had was with the pull-out sprayer. The connection to the flexible hose did break after 2 years of use. With the use of plastic connectors to a steel braided hose, I suppose this could be an issue in any faucet. I do wish they would have stayed with brass connectors though I hear California regualtions may be one of the reasons (wish they would make one for the rest of the country versus complying with CA) as to why they moved to plastic. Delta was great at replacing the hose and connector free. This is one of the reason I buy Delta and I am willing to pay more for the product. They do stand behind their products.

Wand Assembly breaks easily
I had a contractor install this faucet, about 6 months ago, and it's only been used maybe 10 days worth of use, at a remote vacation cabin. When using it, the Wand Assembly came off when pulled out just a couple of inches. The plastic locking feature had broken. Examination shows that the locking feature is a very small plastic nub that is slightly spring loaded, with about 1/16th of an inch of plastic connecting it. I assume the plastic part is factory installed, since you can only replace the entire wand assembly as a unit (screw onto the hose). Not a very robust design. I notice most of their faucets are similar design when the wand is a pull out.

A Fine Faucet
I spent a lot of time on-line investigating faucets. I had to stay within a budget and this one seemed to offer all I wanted at a reasonable price. It replaces a similar faucet I'd had for at least 15 years. My only reservation is that after a couple of months, I'm still having difficulty fine-tuning water temperature. The faucet handle works on a ball-bearing-style fitting and it's a little fussy. Otherwise, I'm perfectly happy with it. I had a plumber do the installation--I could not have done it myself--but I knew that going in.

I have an open floor plan apartment and needed a low faucet so as not to tower over the counter separating the kitchen from the general living area. The height of this faucet is perfect and I've been using it for about a month and the mechanics are flawless. I like that it was made in USA too.
