The operation is tangle free and quiet, thanks to the nylon hose and ball joint swivel. Mineral build up is reduced by the MasterClean technology.

Along with amazing looks and functionality, all parts of this product are extremely sturdy and durable.

For some buyers, the name of seller is enough to give it a try. The large pool of satisfied customers has provided an overall rating of 4 stars for the Coralais Faucet from Kohler.

The Negative Reviews

During our review, some customers stated that the Coralais Faucet from Kohler is an over hyped product that does have serious flaws. Given below are some of the points that came up during the discussion.

Some customers mentioned that the product has broken twice within a year of use. Sometimes water leaks from the pullout joint of the faucet.

Many users have complained that the rate of water flow from the faucet is very low. This problem worsens after the installation of a new cartridge. Many parts are made out of plastic instead of metal.

The faucet frequently tends to remain stuck on the spray mode because the buttons at the top do not function properly. Another problem is that the faucet is the short length of the supply tubes.

The Positive Reviews

The views from the majority of the customers were completely the opposite of the views that we have discussed so far. They have thanked the manufacturer for providing them exactly what they were looking for.

This faucet looks great and performs even better, according to these users. Some users have mentioned that the pull out spay design is probably the best that can be found in any of the available faucets.

There is high quality rubber seal at the bottom where the faucet connects to the faucet to the counter top. This prevents any type of leakage that is a typical problem with many other faucets.

Customers have mentioned that the temperatures can be changed very easily.

The one touch control to choose between spray and the stream is also highly efficient. The installation process of the faucet is easy and does not take much time.

The Conclusion

During our review, we found that most of the customers bought this product because they trust the brand name of Kohler.

The product has done well to live up to the expectation of these customers. There have been some reported issues with the product, too.

However, looking at the low percentage of such cases, they can be considered as nothing more than exceptions. This is one of the best choices in terms of reliability and utility.
