Smart homes are the future. And Moen is tirelessly working on getting that market.
I first had the standard version of this faucet and then upgraded to the voice control kitchen faucet. Both of them were perfect for someone who wished for a flawless modern kitchen experience.
Here in the Moen 7864srs kitchen faucet review, you will have every detail and their day to day performance report about all their styles. And everything is in an organized manner so that it is easy to understand for you.
Review of the Moen 7864SRS Kitchen Faucet
You will find every detail on the faucet in this section. I have tested the faucet thoroughly, and the reports are here.
But before going to the details, you can have a look at the top features of this faucet-
- Duralock one-click installation
- Power-clean technology
- Height: 15.56”, Reach: 7.63”
- Limited lifetime warranty
Moen didn’t mention the metal type, but I have a pretty strong feeling that it is a stainless steel alloy. You also have a 1255™ Duralast™ cartridge. In the cartridge system, there will also be engineered polymers, non-ferrous and stainless steel materials. To prevent backflow, there are two independently operating check valves.
I think these are enough to testify to its durability.
Design And Looks
As you can see in the picture, it is a single handle high arc faucet with pull-down features. There are nine finishes to choose from. I had the black stainless. But later realized the oil rubbed bronze was the best. All of them are spotless and fingerprint resistant.
You can also get it with a sensor or voice control. With the motion sensor, you will have a touchless operation. And here are some extra features in the voice control version.
- Voice control
- App control
- Water volume preset control down to 15ml or a tablespoon
- Temperature preset control up to 120F
- Generic commands
- Motion sense
Nevertheless, the voice control version is somewhat expensive. And you will also need Wi-Fi, a smartphone, and Amazon or Google smart speaker to use that.
Many find the installation to be a little hard because it follows a new set that is actually very easy if you do it right. It uses the duralock system. You need to follow the instruction very well.
This single hole faucet is compatible with three holes with a deck plate, which comes free. Flexible supply lines with 3/8″ compression fittings come with the faucet.
- Aerated stream
- Boosted rinse
- Boosted stream
- Powerful cleaning rinse
The general flow is a sweet 1.5 GPM. However, I would have liked more.
But the best part here is the premium 68″ braided spray hose. It has a smooth reflex system. Dock the head effortlessly and bend it as much as you want.
As far as I know, it is compliant with-
- California Proposition 65
- Federal Safe Drinking Water Act
- CalGreen and Georgia SB370 requirements
I understand that the wall of words in the warranty document can be hard to digest. Let me explain that to you in simpler terms.
First of all, if you are a homeowner, you have a lifetime warranty for leaks, drips, and finish defects. If you set up the faucet in a larger setup such as a multifamily compound, you will have a limited lifetime warranty of ten years. And for commercial users, it five years.
These are the basics. Take some time with the warranty paper if you want to have a better understanding.
After paying that kind of money, I think we can expect magnetic docking. My sister was also accidentally turning on the wave motion faucet when she was cleaning the sink. There were also some reviews on the spray function being unable to work in low pressure, but that is a result of higher expectations from Moen.[amazon box= “B073K54D2K” grid= “1”]
