The Moen 7594C model is the chrome finish of their popular Arbor line of kitchen fixtures. This is similar to the 7594EC, except that this faucet does not have the touchless controls of the E line. This faucet is available in four other finishes. Classic Stainless Steel (7594CSL) gives a shinier finish than the chrome, while Spot Resist Stainless (7594SRS) gives a finish that is resistant to fingerprints and water spotting. If a darker more reserved finish is your forte, then Oil Rubbed Bronze (7594ORB) may provide more of a classic tone. And for modern décor, Matte Black (7594BL) offers a classic look that is sure to blend in well.
This faucet is designed as a high-neck style with a pulldown sprayer that doubles as the faucet spigot. The spray wand has two modes, letting you switch between a heavy duty rinse action and an aerated stream. The sprayer is attached to a 68-inch hose that is counter weighted to allow for easy control. Additionally, this faucet has Moen’s Reflex technology, which lets the hose automatically retract when not in use. This faucet also features Moen’s Power Clean technology which provides the sprayer with 50% more cleaning power versus other Moen faucets that don’t have this technology.
When it comes to installation, this pulldown kitchen faucet is a snap.
Literally. The Duralock quick-connect installation lets you snap the connection lines onto the faucet without the need for tools. And while this system is designed for installation in a single-hole system, Moen includes an escutcheon in this kit. This escutcheon base plate lets you cover the two side holes from a previous three-hole kitchen faucet system, giving you a smooth and seamless look.
Moen provides a lifetime limited warranty on this kitchen faucet that lasts as long as the original purchaser owns the home it is installed in. The finish is covered, as is the ceramic disc valve cartridge, should it fail before its expected lifetime.
Why Does Your Kitchen Sink Have One (or Two, or Three or Four) Faucet Holes?
When installing a new kitchen sink, it’s not uncommon for them to come predrilled with one to four holes. These are meant to make installation of a kitchen faucet easier. After all, drilling through your new sink probably isn’t your idea of a good time. But you might be wondering what the different number of holes are for.
This type of system is meant for installing a traditional three-hole faucet system with the addition of an accessory. This accessory could be anything from a side sprayer to a soap dispenser. If your sink already has four holes and you want to go to a single hole system, then you’ll need an escutcheon and a specific seal that will block the fourth hole.
This is the standard for a two handled faucet with separate hot and cold faucet controls. You can easily change this type of system to a single hole faucet with the use of an escutcheon. These are also called deck plates and work to block off the outer two holes while leaving the center one open.
This type of faucet system is used when you have a single hole faucet but want to have an accessory on the side. There are numerous accessories available, including lotion dispensers, soap dispensers, or even a secondary side sprayer.
This type of faucet mounting system is for current modern faucets that only require a single hole for installation. This is becoming the new standard, or sinks that don’t have any holes at all to accommodate an installation in the countertop itself.
