Check this out. I found a company whose sole source of income is faucet replacement parts. Waterstone is the only company not on their list. New York Replacement Parts Corp. makes a living selling parts for everyone else's faucets. If that company can make a living selling everyone else's faucet parts, doesn't that tell you something? It should! Most of the companies they represent have a "lifetime warranty". So how is it they can make a living selling their parts? Hmmm... I smell something fishy. So much for "their" lifetime warranties! There is never a need to purchase a Waterstone part - ever! Waterstone faucet parts are always under warranty! Waterstone is clearly the finest faucet made anywhere at any price.
Waterstone Positive Lock Pull down Faucet is easily one of the finest faucet in the world when it comes to quality and ergonomics. This faucet (model 5500) is made by Waterstone of California and is appropriate on sinks that are 36" and longer or where comfort in using a faucet is a must. Unique PLP positive lock holds spray head in place. Spray head extends 18" from spout and in the home position it drops water 11" toward the sink. That reach is critical! Think about this... Where the water drops in the sink is where you have to reach to do everything. This amazing faucet drops the water closer to you than the center of the sink in most cases, making reaching or bending at the back unnecessary. This faucet design is easy on the back! Single lever control hot/cold ceramic disk valve cartridge. The spray works when you squeeze the handle - goes back to regular stream when you let go! We sell a faucet with just about every sink. Check this out! Their faucets don't splash like ordinary faucets. They are geniuses at design. You don't have to get wet when washing pots and pans any more.
I recommend the model 5500 for sinks that are 36" and larger. See first video for a great demo of the great functionality of this model.
For those of you who have sinks that are smaller than 36", the smaller model 5610 may be the faucet for you. I inspired Waterstone to redesign all of their standard reach kitchen faucets to make the new the angled faucets. The angled faucets reach further toward you, making them much more ergonomically comfortable to use. I also inspired a redesign of their bar faucets over 10 years ago for the same issue. We have a unique relationship with Waterstone.

Take a look at the second video and you will see just one of the many reasons why Waterstone is the only faucet brand I will represent. NO SPLASHING! In my years as a kitchen designer, I sold just about every other brand on the market. All I can say is that they were all constantly problematic with very few exceptions.
