When we did our renovation a number of years ago, I found this Hansgrohe Metro kitchen faucet at the Home Depot on sale for 20% off.

It looked like a solid unit so I picked it up and got it installed. It worked well for the first 6 years or so then it started leaking where the braided hose connects to the sprayhead. I checked out other videos online to see how to fix it and rather than call in the plumber, I contacted the manufacturer and they sent me a new hose to install which fixed the problem.

Pulling the unit apart wasn’t too much of a pain – in fact it was easier than I expected since I didn’t have to use any specialized tools like a basin wrench or a torx driver. The only tricky part was working under the sink where space is at a premium.

It now works again, hopefully for at least another 6 years!
