Eliminating the need for tools during the install is one of the many wonders of this system, and when done correctly 100% of Hydrolock installs go through without a single problem. Unit weight is 6.2 pounds with dimensions of 24.8×12.2×3.5 inches. The style is transitional and it has a flow rate of 1.5 GPM, so on the lower end compared to other models in the industry. Moen 5995SRS lower GPM allows for better control with the spray head, so it evens out with that.
Things to Know About Moen 5995SRSWhen purchasing, pay attention to the arch and the dimensions, as this will make a big difference with a perfect install or one that leaves you frustrated. The perfect install is one that has the faucet extending the right to the middle of the sink, and not too tight to where it is close in and not too far out to where it is on the edge.
This is why the dimensions of the kitchen faucet are so important when making a purchase, as you have to look at what you have at home in the sink area and figure out if it will be the right fit. Most of the time it won’t be a problem at all, even without the measurements. But when spending money like this, it is always better safe than sorry. As a reference, a bar sink would have problems with the current configuration of the model, but an average kitchen island sink would be just fine.
Lastly when using the spray button on the spray head it does not stay pressed in when you let go of it. So if you want to stay in spray mode, you have to hold down the button while using it. For some this may be a desirable feature to keep kids from playing with it, for others it may be a headache.
Staying in the same family, the Moen 7594SRS Arbor One-Handle High Arc Pull down Kitchen Faucet Featuring Reflex is a good comparison to the 5995SRS and is also considered the upgrade to it. At a slightly higher price, it is hard to consider the purchase of the 7594SRS over the 5995SRS, especially with the eerily similar features. The only big difference is that the upgraded version comes in an optional MotionSense feature in one of its styles, so if you’re looking for the 5995SRS with motion then this will be the one you want to get. If the motion doesn’t matter at all to you, then stick with the original and enjoy the great benefits.

The price is low enough to not scare away potential buyers and there are so many finishes to choose from that consumers may get dizzied with excitement.
With such beautiful finishes, it can become a nightmare to clean, but Moen took the extra step and not only made it resistant against small things like fingerprints but also protected it against water spots. Consumers without a water softener installed may want to look at this unit for something that is self-protecting as far as kitchen appliances go. With their great customer support that they offer, if something does go wrong you will be well taken care of anyway.
With an included escutcheon, the decision to buy gets even easier as that is extra money saved for the buyer on an included accessory. All of this combines with one of the longest hoses in the industry to create one of the best kitchen faucets available, and all without having to break the bank.
