We tried replacing the spout with this one because that's what the guy at Lowe's gave to Chrissy and it turned out to be an abysmal piece of crap. It was a nightmare to install, damaged the copper pipe, and it leaked. Three strikes. We returned it and got a Mixet, which is what the old one was. It's installation was effortless and it didn't leak. That's all I can ask for.
