Don' buy just a faucet - buy a heavy one!

Did you ever change any of your water faucets at home? How often and how many already?. Well I'm kind of lost my count here, and add another count last long weekend..sigh...

There..the bad faucet number XX..totally new, bought in a well known hypermarket (c4), a well known brand (k**m****r), hyperlight, hypershiny and last but not least, hyperItaly as shown. This thing cost about 1.5USD, comes complete with thick lovely blue hanging plastic tag and a teflon tape, nice bonus..o is it?.

The usual routine: closed the central water tap, removing the old bad faucet number XX-1, happily wrap the teflon tape (my favorite thing to do)  laa..di dam..di dam..put and turn the number XX to the wall socket, there goes the wrench..laa di the...? Is this faucet that bad? It's just can not took even the light twist of my light wrench..whaaa...!!.

Did I need to comment on the design - material - fabrication? No..not a bit. Even the fluorescent colored plastic faucet is doing better than this hyperItaly. This is an outright robbery...where is the Ombudsman here? Hellooo?..knock knock!.

Do me a favor. Just buy a heavy real brass nickel chrome plated faucet. It will cost you 10 times more but will safe you 10 years of not using those red plumbing wrench...while I left here with very expensive teflon tape...thanks for reading..
