I have heard from several sources that Home Depot and Lowes carry an inferior level of quality of name brand items, especially Kohler and Moen faucets. Is this true? Why would these reputable companies distribute lesser quality products to anyone? If I bought a "Kohler" faucet at Home Depot that fell apart I wouldn't be likely to replace it with the same brand. (BTW...all of the faucets we have purchased have been from Plumbing supply houses NOT the big box stores, have we been duped?)
Just curious if what we have been told is true...Thanks!
