A faucet is one of the most used items in your house even though you may not notice it. It's an essential piece for both your bathroom and your kitchen, two of the most used rooms in any home. It's essential then that you have a faucet that functions as needed and matches the style of the space. 

Those with experience in sourcing homeware will probably have heard of Grohe. Grohe make all kinds of solutions for your bathroom and kitchen. The origins of the company date back to the late 1800s when they designed and manufactured faucets for the home. In 1956 they formally became the company we know today, and they have continued to diversify their product range. In modern times, they continue to innovate in this sector, and now they have one of the most impressive ranges of products.

Grohe is based in Germany, a country that prides itself on their manufacturing quality. Despite some of their products now being produced overseas, that same quality is still prevalent, and Grohe is proud of their craftsmanship.

Along with the quality, Grohe has invested time in developing their products. Their faucets have incorporated the latest technology (a lot of which has been developed by them) and combined this with innovative engineering. The result is a range of faucets that stand out in the industry.

Grohe is well known, and their products are featured positively in many different reviews. Let's take a closer look at the features which help their faucets stand out.

Grohe Faucet Types

One Handle Gooseneck Kitchen Faucets

Gooseneck kitchen faucets are designed with a smooth, curved spout, similar to that of a goose’s neck. It’s a popular design that works well with traditional or more modern kitchens.

The high curve allows for greater room underneath the faucet and allows for better use of your sink. This type of faucet is generally used for large sinks, and while it is seen more in the home, some commercial businesses also use them.

Grohe Faucet

One Handle Traditional Kitchen Faucets

The traditional kitchen faucet often has a classic design which makes them better suited for a less modern kitchen. You’ll often find the designs mirror classic architectural forms, with curves that bring attention to the faucet. Traditional faucets are less likely to feature pull-down features, and you're more likely to see them over sinks that don't see as much use.

Commercial Kitchen Faucets

Commercial faucets are for those with a more professional kitchen, or in some cases for homes with sinks that see heavy use. Generally, these faucets are more expensive and built with more robust features that make them suitable for prolonged use. They may also have higher flow rates to allow for easier cleaning. If the sink is at the center of your kitchen, then this is the type for you.


Why Choose Grohe?

Grohe has been one of my go-to brands for faucets for a few years now. The company itself has a long history, and the German manufacturing quality gives me a level of confidence in the product that I don't have in some other comparable brands.

Grohe faucets stand out in particular because of the materials used. The detail and care they put into sourcing, and constructing their products shows. While this means they aren't the cheapest on the market, it also highlights the level of consistency and quality you can expect.

Grohe faucets are also made to be particularly resilient. Their faucets are dent and scratch resistant, generally making them longer lasting and better value. Their faucets are suitable not only for home use but commercially where the level of consumption is much higher.

On top of this, Grohe incorporates a lot of innovation into their products. They're continually developing their faucets and incorporating features that make life easier for the user. Consistently I find them to be at the forefront of the industry in terms of technology.

This combination of technology, utility, and style makes them an excellent choice for all kitchen and bathroom products, but especially for faucets.


Faucet Buyers Guide

Not all faucets are created equal, and the quality of a product can vary massively. If you don't have a lot of experience, it can be difficult to work out exactly what is and isn't good and see through the industry jargon. When selecting your faucet, these are the factors you should consider:

Style & Finish

Grohe Eurostyle Cosmopolitan

Style often becomes the most crucial factors in any purchase for your home.

Faucets are available in a range of different styles, from modern to transitional, or more traditional. The design, materials and finish will dictate what works with your home, so it's essential to take a step back and consider the room the faucet will be sitting in.

Grohe is specialists when it comes to faucets, so their range of styles is pretty much unmatched on the market. 

Size (Spout Height and Reach)

When considering which faucet to choose, you also need to consider the practical aspects. This means selecting a faucet which can perform exactly how you need it to. The height of the spout will determine how far the spray of the water can reach so the bigger the sink, the greater the height will need to be. Faucets between 10 and 18 inches are trendy right now, but Grohe offers almost all of their products in a range of different sizes to make it easier to choose.

Operation

How a faucet operates is also a crucial factor, but will largely be determined by your personal preference. Grohe faucets are varied, and unlike other brands, they don't just specialize in a single type. A single handle is generally the most popular, but pull-down features make cleaning a lot easier. Grohe offers some high-tech choices that combine different functions in one product.

Flow Rate

The flow rate of a faucet is often one of the most underappreciated factors because people tend not to understand what it means. By selecting a flow rate of 0.5-1.5 GPM (gallons per minute), you can significantly reduce your water output, which ultimate means long term savings on water costs. Grohe use aerators in their faucets to help compensate for fluctuations in water pressure and given consistency. This means even low gpm rates can deliver significant water pressure.

Durability

The durability of faucets is ultimately where you see the long-term value in the product. The materials used may be shaped partly by the design, but generally, you want to be looking for stainless steel products. Stainless steel faucets are more resistant than alternatives, but in recent years bronze or nickel plate has grown in popularity because of the distinctive look.

Materials are always going to be necessary, but the construction quality is paramount. Grohe uses innovative manufacturing techniques and deliver German build quality. This means that their products are more durable and much longer lasting than some alternatives.

Mounting Style/Installation

There are generally three main types of mounting style for your faucets. The most common is where a faucet is fitted directly onto your sink. This puts some dependency on the number of holes your sink has currently, but generally, it's the easiest option if you’re looking to update or replace an existing faucet.

Another option is for a deck mounted faucet. This is where the faucet and handles are fitted directly into the surface top and over the sink. This is typically used with undermount sinks in more modern homes.

Finally, you can choose to wall mount your faucet. This involves placing the faucet directly into the wall above the sink and gives a different a stylish look to the room. It frees up space on the countertop but can be pretty tricky to install yourself so you may need to get a plumber round to help.

The mounting of your faucet may be predetermined by the space you have available and the existing layout. Be aware of what you can and can’t do before you start searching.

Number of Holes Required

Before you start looking for faucets, count how many holes you have in your sink. Most sinks have three holes, one for the hot handle, one for the cold handle and one for the spout.

This means if you're going for a single handle faucet, you'll have a hole going spare. Usually this isn't an issue because faucets will come with a plate to cover the extra hole, but this isn't always the case. Take a close look at what you're buying beforehand to avoid issues down the line.

Grohe Single Handle Pull Down Kitchen Faucet

Warranty

A warranty is a guarantee the manufacturer gives a product against any malfunction or issues that aren't caused the user. This can give you a level of reassurance in what you're buying and help protect you from a faulty product.

A standard warranty for faucets should last at least a couple of years and cover all aspects of the product. Grohe offers a lifetime warranty on almost all of their products; however, do be aware this doesn't include standard wear and tear.


Special Features of Grohe Faucets

Grohe StarLight/ SuperSteel Infinity Finish

Grohe uses a unique finish on their faucets called StarLight or SuperSteel. 

 This involves a thin layer of stainless steel being applied around the product, which improves the look of the faucet, but most importantly, it gives an extra layer of protection. This limits the risk of your faucet getting scratched, dented, or corroding. 

Grohe SilkMove Ceramic Cartridge

The Grohe SilkMove cartridge has been designed to give you full control of the flow of water in your faucet. The handle will move effortlessly and stay in place until moved back by the user. This lets you control the water pressure and temperature from the tap more accurately.

SpeedClean Anti-Lime System

To make their faucets more user-friendly, Grohe incorporated an easy clean feature into their faucets which protects against limescale. This makes the nozzles easy to clean and limescale can be wiped away with a cloth. This helps the faucet and adds to the longevity of the product.

Extractable Integrated Trigger Spray

Grohe faucets are built with an integrated extractable trigger spray feature. This allows you to greater increase the radius and area of spray, a handy feature for large sinks.

Locking Dual Spray Control Pull- Out Sprayer

Dual spouts make Grohe faucets even more versatile. The pull-out sprayer is perfect for rinsing plates or washing vegetables without having to empty the sink and adds another level of usefulness to the faucet.

Grohe Real Steel Stainless Steel Construction

Grohe manufacturing is second to none in this price range. They use stainless steel in the majority of products, which gives better protection from scratching or denting. Advanced assembly techniques have been adopted to keep the quality in their products consistent.

Adjustable Flow Rate Limiter

Grohe includes adjustable flow rate limiters in their faucets. This allows you to control the flow rate of the water based on your needs and will enable you to be much more efficient in your home.

Installation of Grohe Faucets

Grohe offers full installation guides for all of their products, making the whole installation process reasonably straight forward. The level of complexity will depend mostly on the type of fitting, and the existing set up of your bathroom or kitchen.

If you need to fit a brand-new faucet and it's not something you have much experience with, then you should look to get some professional help. An experienced plumber should have no problem with any of these faucets, but you should be prepared to spend between $150-250 depending on your area.

Alternatively, there is a lot of guidance out there to help you do it yourself. Handy how-to videos are all over YouTube, and if you're not scared to get your hands dirty, it's worth giving it a go before you call the professionals.


Grohe Faucet Maintenance

Once you have your faucet installed, you need to make sure you're taking proper care of it. Grohe products come with some innovative features that make this easier, but you’ll still need to stay on top of cleaning and maintaining the faucet to ensure its longevity.

As a minimum, you should be cleaning your faucet once a week, but every day is better if possible. When cleaning, you should be using warm water and dish soap. Baking soda is excellent for removing any stains that might have built up over time. Always make sure you thoroughly dry your faucet after cleaning. The Grohe stainless steel finish will protect the product, but water can cause rust to build up over time.

Within the faucet itself, you need to maintain the aerator, and you should aim to do this at least once every few months. The aerator mixes water and air to maintain a steady flow of water, which is crucial to having a faucet that works effectively. The aerator should be reasonably easy to maintain, but you have to disassemble the faucet to access it partly.

When taking the faucet apart, you should make sure you keep the pieces in order or putting it back together can be a challenge. Grohe instruction manuals are useful for this, so it's worth keeping them somewhere safe. Once you have the aerator out, then use an old toothbrush to remove any potential blockages or dirt that can build up.

Generally, all this maintenance can be done yourself, however, if you're worried or your faucet isn't as accessible, then you can get a professional round to do it relatively cheaply. 


Common Faucet Issues & Problems

However good the product and however well you maintain it, you have to be prepared for problems to arise. Based on my experience and speaking to others, there are a couple of critical issues that come up regularly, but there are some easy fixes.

Low water pressure can happen for several reasons, but most commonly, it's a problem with the aerator. Grohe has made their aerators pretty sturdy, but if you do encounter this problem, you should remove it and scrub it clean. If there are stubborn blockages, you can use vinegar to dissolve them. Once blockages are removed, the water pressure should go back to normal.

Leaks are common with faucets, and there can be several issues that cause them. Most commonly the leaks will come from the handle so you should start by tightening the packing nut underneath. If this doesn't work, you should consider replacing the O ring by switching off the water supply, taking apart the faucet and putting a new O ring in the base. If the problem persists, or if you don’t do DIY, then you should call a plumber as early as possible.

A stiff faucet handle is another common problem in faucets. This generally happens when there is a build-up of sediment internally that damages the seal within the cartridge. This will need to be replaced, and you can do that by taking the faucet apart and putting a new one in. Alternatively, you can try applying a lubricant to the handle, but be careful not to use a petroleum-based lubricant as this could damage the finish of the faucet.
