Pfister or Price Pfister is another big player like Moen and Delta. Emil Price and William Pfister is the founder of Pfister and they founded it in Los Angeles in 1910. Their first product was a garden faucet. After that, they started producing other faucets. Apart from that, they have built some military items like aircraft fittings, hand grenade shells etc. during World War I and World War II.
They have gained their popularity after 1950 when they had started making quality residential products like bathroom and kitchen faucets. Their tagline was quite popular too. Their tagline was “Price Pfister, the Pfabulous Pfaucet with the Pfunny name” 😀
I have personally used their faucets and they were quite well. Recently I have bought Pfister F042JDCW and I can say that this one is one of the best bathroom faucets I have ever used in my bathroom. One of my bathroom faucets is now 23 years old and still going fine!

To be honest, their faucets quality is great.
Grohe has always tried to engulf their products with innovative technology, and like always they have gained success in that attempt. With that being said, GROHE Blue and RED water system, GROHE Smart Control and GROHE Sense water security system serve as the notable smart home technology from the manufacturer.
Grohe is not limited to any sanitary fitting segment as the vast fleet of product in every division. The manufacturer is entirely about their commitment to their customer, and that is why they with almost every they offer a Limited lifetime warranty, mechanical warranty, finish warranty and electronic, controls and valve warranty.
Don’t be confused between Hansgrohe and Grohe. Though the name match to each other, they are a totally different company. But yes, there is a relation between these two companies.
Hansgrohe was founded by Hans Grohe in 1901. It is a German fittings manufacturer as well like Grohe. The founder of the Grohe, Friedrich Grohe is the son of Hans Grohe. Isn’t it interesting? 😀 Now both the companies of father and sons are the competitor. Hansgrohe is one of the best kitchen faucet manufacturers in the market. It is more popular in France than in the USA.
You can be sure about the quality of the faucets of Hansgrohe as well. Actually, they are giving importance to quality rather than outward appearance. But they are still making beautiful designs.
They are world-renowned for their highly functional product, and this is the reason they are one of the largest suppliers of the hand shower, faucet and shower head in the US market.
Like Grohe, Hansgrohe has followed the same footstep and made a firm foot in most of the sanitary divisions like bathroom accessories, shower accessories, fittings, and kitchen and bathroom faucets. For all their innovative products they have won many prizes and most notably Design Award of the Federal Republic of Germany 2012 along with iF Design award 2016 and Red Dot Design award 2016.
An interesting fact of this manufacturer is that they have always shown interest in saving water and Eco-friendly products without diminishing functionality and comfort in their products. With their EcoRight shower and faucets, they have reduced the water flow from 2.0gpm to 1.5gpm which is 60% less water than conventional water usage by standard equipment.
Kohler is another big player in the field of bathroom and kitchen faucets. It’s one of the leading faucets manufacturer companies of the United States. US people love Kohler’s faucets rather than other manufacturers. Kohler Co. was founded by John Michael Kohler in 1873. Kohler’s headquarter is a village in Sheboygan County, Wisconsin, United States. The village name is also Kohler.
They use some advanced technologies in their faucets that can save water. They have built their products in such a way that the faucets remain cozy in any weather. They are one of the few manufacturers and probably the only giant in the US market who still manufactures cast iron bathtubs.
Kohler always tries to maintain an ideal blend of durability and design in their products. They also offer a good range of products in the sink and toilet segment that is adorned by hand-painted custom graphics design. To help consumers in building well-designed bathroom and kitchen, they also offer the service of some highly efficient designers. I have a touch-free kitchen faucet of Kohler. their service is pretty good.
Kohler is continuously updating its product with new designs. Recently at CES 2018, they have unveiled Kohler Konnect which is a smart plumbing fixture that covers showerheads, digital shower valves, mirrors, toilets, and traditional showerheads. To stay ahead in the race, Konnect products can be operated through Google Home and Amazon Alexa using the inbuilt Wi-Fi.
Jaclo is an American bathroom and kitchen fittings manufacturer company. It is a family-owned company since 1901. Almost, 5 generation of the same family is behind the company’s achievement. Their Rain Machine is quite popular among the US people. This an exclusive product of Jaclo. It is basically a bathroom shower system.
They also offer various products in kitchen plumbing equipment, outdoor and bathroom segment. However, their bathroom segment has the highest product range covering shower, tub, faucet, toilet, and other accessories. Even though the manufacturer employs modern technologies and designs in their products but still they have managed to maintain the vintage outlook.
Jaclo is one of those manufacturers in US market who choices of 26 types of body finishing in their products which is quite rare. For their products and commitment towards their product, Jaclo has won many awards since its inception.
8. CHICAGO FAUCET
Chicago Faucet Company is founded by Albert C. Brown in 1901 on the near-west side of Chicago, Illinois. In 2002 Chicago Faucet was acquired by the Swiss Geberit AG and since then its headquarter is in Des Plaines, US.
Though it is not a big fish like Moen, Delta or other faucets brands we have reviewed here, it is gaining popularity day by day. They are making really good faucets and other bathroom-kitchen fittings.
Other products they also offer are manual faucets, mortuary fittings, tub, shower, electronic sensor faucets, bubbler, urinal valves, pot and glass filler, remote spouts, etc. Apart from residential products, they are also well known for the commercial line of products.
Chicago Faucet is a renowned brand in the United States. I like that Chicago Faucet provides a lifetime warranty service! However certain products come with five-year parts and cartridge warranty. A unique facility offered by this manufacturer is that the consumer can configure their plumbing components with the help of a huge number of combination available on the website.
9. Kingston Brass
Kingston Brass is another growing faucet brand who has been supplying some top-grade sanitary products since their inaugural in 1998. They have their main office in Chino California and a warehouse that covers 72,000 square feet.
They basically produce faucets, kitchen & bathroom sinks, tubs & accessories. The number of varied items they have produced is way over 20000 and it is increasing day by day. They have produced some top quality pull-down kitchen faucets.

The manufacturer also pays huge heed towards the health of their users and that is why all their products meet AB1953 standard which depicts the product is completely free from lead.
Phylrich is another growing faucet manufacturer in recent time. Though it has been founded more than 50 years ago, it has just started its journey in the USA. Phylrich is now designed and built in the USA. Their faucets are quite expensive if we compare them with other manufacturers.
All their handcrafted signature models are constructed using top of the line raw material adorned with elegant modern, so it serves as a primary reason behind their pricing. The eye-catching part of their collection is that although they have around 20 collections all are unique, and anyone won’t find that kind of finishing or styling in any other models.
They deal in a different type of product whether it is kitchen faucets, shower set, tub, bidets, holders, etc. They have an efficient customer service who are always ready to solve any faced by their customer. Their 10-years warranty covers a lot of section that including finish, body material, coating, ceramic valve, etc.
