Well, the factory faucet that I have never cared for got replaced while we were on vacation. A few years ago a valve in the faucet failed (Could not turn off fully), so I just replaced the valve. The cabinet under the sink makes it a PITA to access the connections, so I did the valve thing.
At the start of our vacation, at out overnight stop, I noticed water on the counter. I had a slow leak at the base of a valve.
We made a stop at Lowe's and when we got checked in and setup at our vacation destination, I changed the faucet. It was a pain to get to the connections. The removal took a while, but the new install went fairly smooth. Leak free on the first try
This one is metal, the orig. was plastic.
