          Installation was simple for me, I'm a seasoned DIY-er. You need to run a new dedicated 240v line (so you will need 2 slots in your breaker panel).
          I was very disappointed at what a poor job the heater did at raising the water temperature, especially as I am in Texas where our ground water temperature is around 65 degrees.
          I read over the sizing guide again, and much to my dismay discovered why the heater wasn't doing its job. The guide details flow rates of just 0.5 gallons per minute. Either 0.5 gallons per minute for a single sink or 1 gallon per minute for a double sink (meaning two faucets at 0.5 gallons per minute each).
          I checked my faucets, none of them run this low. I checked

          I checked my faucets, none of them run this low. I checked online for flow rate information - Kitchen sinks are typically 2.2 gallons per minute flow, bathroom faucets can have aerators that restrict flow to 1.5, 1.2, 1.0, or even 0.5 gallons. So herein lies the problem. Unless you are restricting your water flow to a minuscule 0.5 gallons per minute, this heater is just not up to the job. At 0.5 gallons per minute I would find the faucet unusable at best.
          When sizing your water heater, you are likely going to need a unit that is 3 to 4 times as large as the guide claims, unless you are in the minority of people with 0.5 gpm restricted faucets. Read Less

          This is a very heavy duty, quality felling, faucet. The shiny chrome finish and angular lines make a real statement in any bathroom.
          Designed to be mounted on 4 inch holes, either 2 or 3 hole.
          The faucet has a built in aerator that provides a good amount of water (1.50 GPM at 60 psi). The handles turn 90 degrees from no flow to full flow.
          A matching drain is included, and the top of the faucet has the handle to open and close the drain.

          The vanity is supplied fully assembled (a vanity top is not included). The craftsmanship is fairly rudimentary. One of the support frames was attached by staples, and the staples only protruded 1/8 of an inch in to the cabinet.
          The frame is fully enclosed, ,meaning you'll cut out the holes for plumbing before installing it. This provides a finished touch when looking inside the cabinet.
          Simple silver hardware is provided.
          The quality is akin to the other modern vanities we have, and the simple plain white design will fit in most bathrooms just fine.
          Like all cabinets in this price range, it is made from particle board.

          The SharkBite Faucet Installation Kit has everything you need to install your new faucet. The kit includes 2 SharkBite 1/2 in. x 1/4 in. (3/8 in. O.D.) Push-to-Connect Angle Stop Valves, two 5 ft. coils of 1/4 in. PEX Pipe, two 1/4 in. (3/8 in. O.D.) SharkBite x 1/2 in. Swivel Faucet Connectors, and a 1/2 in. Chrome Trim Cover reversed functions as a disconnect and 1/4 in. disconnect clip to remove the pipe from the fitting if needed. The SharkBite Angle Stop Valves work with copper, PEX or CPVC. Just insert the pipe and the stainless steel teeth bite down and grip tight, while a specially formulated O-ring compresses to create a perfect seal. Disassembly is just as fast using the simple disconnect tool so fittings and valves can be easily changed and reused. They can even be rotated after assembly for easier installation in tight spaces. The included PEX coils can be cut to the exact length needed so there is no excess supply line to coil up under the sink providing a clean, tangle free look. Once the stop valves are installed, thread the 1/2 in. faucet connectors onto the faucet connections and then measure and cut the PEX and push into the outlet on the stop valve and the faucet connector and the installation is complete.

          Over time our faucet valve become difficult or impossible to open due to the very soft water from our water well. When swapping out a fact recently I found the old valve fully seized and it simply would not budge.
          I hacksawed off the old valve, lightly sanded the pipe to get rid of any burs, and simply slid this valve in place. No soldering or clamps to use, they just slide right on!
          The kit has enough to do both faucets. Neither valve is color coded for hot or cold. A quick release tool is even included in the kit.
          It is time to retire the propane torch.
          Cons: quick removal tool included

          This is a fantastic, heavy duty, ceramic vanity top. The "Kohler" logo is discreetly imprinted on the inside of the sink portion. The rectangular basin shape is a timeless classic.
          Measuring 49-in x 23-in it is designed to sit atop a 48-in x 22-in vanity.
          The all-in-one solid piece means there are no nooks and crannies to collect dirt.
          It is predrilled with 8 in. center faucet holes, and includes an overflow drain.

          The glass shade of this model might be the same as model 556225, but I can't tell. It is as if the photo for this model was not cropped properly.

          Are the two glass shades the same, or does this model truly have what appears to be almost a second, clear shade over the white shade?
