Replacement of Single-Handle Pull-Out Kitchen Faucet
Kitchen faucets can be pricey; many models are well over$100 including the style we have – a Moen Single-Handle Pull-Out Kitchen Faucet.Unfortunately, after only five years of really reliable service, the faucet head cracked and leaked, as a result. The diminished function of the sprayer was frustrating, but we did not want to spend a lot of money to fix our problem. We researched alternatives and found that we could replace only the spray head with a universal fit, meaning it could be a totally different brand (which was a good thing since finding a Moen replacement head of that style wasn’t working out). We found a Kingston Brass Single Handle Pull-Out Kitchen Faucet Sprayer, Polished Chrome online for $16.59. A customer review rating of 4 out of 5 stars across 21 customer reviews sealed the deal for us (free shipping was icing on the cake)! What a savings!

Ruheena on Dec 13, 2014I have exactly the same tap in my kitchen. I live in U.K. Mine is leaking underneath the sink and if I undo the tap head it has a washer inside it, if I screw it back again it stops leaking. I thought it is effecting because of me pulling it often. So I stopped pulling it and using it as it is but notice it starts to leak every few months. Do I need to change the washer? Any suggestions, I do not want to waste money on a new tap.No guarantees here.
Bill Croley on Jul 04, 2015Thank you for mentioning the Moen guarantee. I was about to buy my third faucet in 10 years because it keeps breaking.
