Default freedom faucet

Got my new sink (a cast iron Kohler, thanks to anyone who discussed this
with me) now I need a faucet. I have been looking on faucetdirect.com at a
faucet by "Freedom Faucets". I never heard of this brand....will it be as
good as a Delta or a Moen?

Thanks,

Jeff

Default freedom faucet

don't know. thoughts:
choose an extra tall longer spigot to clear the deep pots and pans.
choose a brand for which replacement parts are widely available to you.
my personal preference is for old style one handed delta ball handles,
but some like the vertical lift of water selection style common to old
style moen. see what you like to feel on the back of your greasy hand
when you're washing up. the old moens had a scratchier handle and the
excessive motion to swing them into position for temperature selection
is what pushed me away from them to the deltas.
you can look thru the virtual catalog for this at:

I bought a Moen less than 3 yrs ago and it is crap. I called for
a replacement piece of rubber- probably a nickel's worth- and they
don't sell parts, but they'll replace the whole faucett. . . except
they don't make that model anymore. Nor do they sell one with the
same features. [pull out and filter option]

I'll never throw my money away on a 'lifetime' 'moan' again. I'll
get whatever is cheap and toss it when it breaks.
