INSTALLAtion

While many faucets may easily be installed by you, we always recommend that you hire a certified plumber for all installations.
All Kibi faucets have Ceramic Cartridges.
Yes, drains and rings from reputable manufacturers will be compatible with most glass vessel sinks.


There are two important elements that you'll see on specs for stainless kitchen sinks: chromium and nickel. They enhance the quality of the steel, giving it strength and corrosion resistance, which is essential to the function of a kitchen sink.

Gauge represents the thickness of the stainless steel kitchen sink. Gauge ranges from 16" to 20" thickness. We recommend 16g sinks, since they are going to be the most durable option, and will most likely outlast your kitchen. Stainless sinks are usually labeled in a ratio like “18:8,” which refers to the amount of chromium and nickel contained in the steel. In this case the steel is 18% chromium and 8% nickel.

The higher the percentages of these elements that are present, the better the grade of stainless steel. The series number generally designates the grade of the steel. Stainless steel sinks are usually in the "300" series (specifically 304) because they are made from good quality steel with 18:8 to 20:10 chromium/nickel content.

Stainless steel sinks can be fitted with sound insulation and coatings to help deaden sound. Insulation can also reduce condensation buildup on the bottom of the sink that sometimes leads to moisture problems with the base cabinet that the sink rests in. Not all stainless sinks come with this feature but it's especially worth consideration for thinner gauge sinks to reduce the metallic sound produced when they are struck.
Some Kitchen Faucets that do not have a pullout sprayer may be connected to a portable dishwasher. Pull out faucets should never be connected to portable dishwashers because potential pressure fluctuations during washing cycles may result in hose rupture or leaks.

You would require a tall faucet anywhere from 12" - 13" height.

Spout reach, the distance from the center of the faucet body to the aerator, is an important consideration. Make certain that the spout reach will be sufficient to work with the existing vessel sink.

My under mount faucet has an opening in the back of it. What is the opening for?

The opening in the back of the faucet is used during the pull-up drain installation (the included metal rod gets inserted into the opening to operate the opening and closing of the pull-up drain). Considering that most faucets and drains are sold separately, always refer to the model of the sink as well as the faucet when considering purchase options.
