The items look the same but only one is available at Lowes. Is it made with cheaper parts?
Hi Urbain, Thank you for your question. Although the faucets are the same above the countertop they are completely different underneath. The model 3555LFRB-216RB uses our 2 handle stem assembly and seats and springs to control the flow of water. The model 35955-RB-DST uses the newer Diamond Seal Technology. DIAMOND™ Seal Technology is the revolutionary water delivery system that combines a durable DIAMOND™ Valve with InnoFlex® PEX waterways.
Patented DIAMOND Seal Technology is forever, requiring no lubrication and eliminating wear on the seals to ensure like new operation for the life of the faucet.With integrated InnoFlex® supply lines, no intermediate risers are required. DURAMOUNT® mounting system provides durable, fast and corrosion resistant installation
