Dazed & ConfusedChrisDon’t get me wrong I love the products from IKEA, BUT their assembly instructions leave a lot to be desired. The hot & cold water hoses in the instructions say they are 3/8”, WELL they are really 1/2”. We ran into this with the disown purchased from IKEA too. We found that we had to YouTube a lot to figure out how to do some of the assembly.4
Mlim7Very happy with the faucet5
Extra patience neededJerricaI replaced a dated faucet with this ÄLMAREN (without the pull-out spout) faucet as a quick fix— but I ended up hating it. We needed extra parts to even install it, then the water flow was way too low. I went through 3 different aerators before finding the right GPM (its a 1.5 gpm tiny junior btw). Then we found out we couldn’t even pair it with any universal side sprayers. I also found I didn’t like the one piece handle and spout design— it makes it harder to keep the area dry and clean. I replaced/returned it in less than 6 months.2
Perfect faucet!monicadelI purchased this faucet to replace a non-IKEA faucet I had that broke. The Almaren faucet spout was not as “squared” in shape as I had wanted it to be, but the overall shape was what I wanted and the 10-year warranty sold me on it. When I installed it, the slightly angled spout meant the water flow was aimed directly to the drain in my sink which means no splash back! This faucet turned out to suit my needs more than I had imagined & now I love the angled spout!5
Looks greatBouldergirlReally like the way this looks. The only two things I would say that were negative's are: the control of water flow is a little bit touchy (all or nothing) and takes time to learn. Second, for years I have used a Pür water filter that attaches to my kitchen faucet (for space saving reasons) this is one of the top selling filters in the United States. I would hope that in the near future Ikea would make an attachment that allows me to attach the Pür water filter to the Ikea faucet. You can't do that right now.4
Error in information sheetmike freestonVery attractive design, excellent function. One thing IKEA should know though is that the US nut size for the connections is not 9/16 as given in the instructions: it's 5/8. I guess thousands have told you this by now (:>). Not a big deal unless you have no tools and go out and buy the wrong spanner.5

Saving water at every step

Every time you rinse salad, fill a kettle or wash dishes, you're helping with something essential—saving water. How? Thanks to the small aerator in every IKEA kitchen faucet that reduces water flow while maintaining pressure. We didn't invent aerators, but think they are an important example of how we can work together to save water for everyone's benefit.

Four years ago, we started a project to improve our faucets and knew we needed more expertize. That's when we hired Antony Smith, an engineer from England who has worked with faucets for more than a decade. Now he lives in Sweden and is part of a small team that develops faucets and showers for IKEA. Like every new employee, Antony read founder Ingvar Kamprad's Testament of a Furniture Dealer. In it, Ingvar writes 'wasting resources is a mortal sin at IKEA.' This helped Antony understand how much we care about water and how his job is just one step in our larger approach to sustainability.

A company-wide dedication

"When I got to IKEA, I realized we practice what we preach about sustainability," Antony says. "It's a refreshing experience, but it makes our job really difficult because we genuinely have to deliver on sustainability with each product." So why is conserving water so important? Because water is one of our planet's most precious resources. Earth may be covered in a lot of water, but very little of it is drinkable and even less is accessible. No organism can survive without it, and no new water is created. It's constantly recycled, but our freshwater supply is overused; not evenly distributed; and impacted by pollution, contamination and climate change.

A water-conscious commitment

IKEA values the quality and quantity of water so much that we are committed to being water positive by 2020. One aspect is finding simple ways for people to conserve water. Aerators are a step we took long before our water commitment, but Antony and his team are working hard on new water saving faucets using sensors or spray technology. Behind the scenes, there's more to our commitment than what we develop for kitchens. Our initiative also includes exploring ways to improve water efficiency across the whole product process, whether it’s at our suppliers, distribution centers or stores. It can mean providing factory workers and their families with fresh drinking water, ensuring all factory water is cleaned before release, reducing water usage in textile production or using rainwater to flush toilets in stores. "We make things hard on ourselves for good reasons, Antony says."

An every-bit-counts belief

See why the aerator in your kitchen faucet is a small part of our bigger effort to conserve water? "Some people who live where you can just turn on your faucet and get water may not really think about saving water; it's taken for granted," Antony says. But he and his team think about water at every step. It's part of creating a positive impact on people and the planet. We think every water-saving action adds up and thank you for helping with your kitchen mixer faucet!

Material

What is brass?

Brass is a mixture of copper and zinc and the amounts vary depending on the desired properties. Copper is usually the main material and the more zinc you add results in the brass being harder and stronger, but also results in it being more difficult to shape and less resistant to rust. Brass can be recycled as brass but never into its original metals. At IKEA we use brass for things like knobs, handles, frames and taps.
