We often received emails and letters from faucet and sink consumers on our products and customer service. Here is a recent email from Debbie in Mount Prospect, IL.
“Tom, this is Debbie who lives in Mount Prospect. I just wanted to extend my thanks and gratitude to you for sending out a new faucet head. That’s exactly what my Faucet needed It is not leaking or dripping and working just perfectly now. I thank you very much for sending that out so quickly. I love my faucet. I would love to talk to others about how great it is. I would write a testament on your website if that is something you have available. Doesn’t look great it works great and there is a huge difference between your faucet and others. I have looked at many faucets from Kohler to Moen to even some made in Europe. By far yours is the nicest looking as well as the best stream. Love it!!!”
At the recent International Surfaces Event and Kitchen and Bath Industry Show in Las Vegas Eclipse showed a few new products that in the works for 2015 including the new Swan Faucet, new finishes including black shown her on a KPS3029N and a new touch faucet.
Here are some pictures of kitchens with creative islands made from dressers. These have the advantage of being truly unique and may even be less expensive. And do not forget to dress it up with you premium sink and faucet from ANO.
Coming in the first quarter is a major up date on the KPS3029 Shasta pull-out kitchen faucet. The updated head will be more stylish and lighter than the original. The head will still be sand-cast stainless steel like all the Eclipse Stainless faucets.
Eclipse Stainless steel faucets are made of sand cast stainless steel. This method of constructing faucets has a number of advantages.
No finish to peel or come off. Here is an exert from an article on how to repair chrome faucets. The information can be applied other finishes as well.
Chrome plating is the process of bonding a layer of chromium onto other objects to give them a chrome finish. For faucet fixtures, chrome provides several benefits — it has a sheen that works well in kitchens and bathrooms, it is relatively inexpensive to manufacture, and it is highly resistant to corrosion. However, the chrome plating can become scratched or damaged with frequent use. Serious damage requires a full replacement of the fixture.

All components are made using the same process so they all match. Many faucet even brand name faucet are finish applied on brass or plastic and because the process is different on the different parts there can be significant difference in the color on the different structures of the faucet – head, neck and body.
Eclipse Stainless faucets are made from 304 stainless steel just like the Eclipse sinks. As part of the Total Eclipse package they will match you Eclipse sink now and for the life of the sinks and faucet.
Eclipse faucets have a spring to retract the head not a weight like most gooseneck pull down faucets. Weights can bang on plumbing, hang up on pipes and will not work if there are boxes or other storage beneath the sink.
The handles on most faucets can be mounted in any direction 360 degrees.
In a previous post on the blog we discussed how to maintain a soap dispenser. Soap dispensers are made to handle high viscosity soap (thick liquid.) However over time they can become clogged with caking soap particularly if left unused for long periods of time like vacations. Soap dispensers should be cleaned periodically.
If you prefer a video here is a short video of the procedure.
