I’m about to replace my standard faucets with Perlicks, but I’m incredibly indecisive. I’ve read the good and bad with each model and am looking for some more input.
525 - Stainless steel, pretty straight forward, no dripping issues
575 - Stainless steel, creamer (neat, but seems gimmicky), dripping issues
545 - Flow control, NON stainless, possible dripping issues
I like the idea of stainless steel over chrome plated. The creamer function on the 575 model sounds neat, but I’m guessing it’s one of those things you use a few times and forget about it or lose interest. I’ve read this model can have leaking issues.
For the 545, it’s not stainless, which I don’t like, but I like the idea of being able to control the flow. I’m replacing taps on a kegerator, so for me to open it up and dial up or down the psi for a certain keg is not a big issue, but controlling the flow right at the handle seems like a plus, especially if filling a growler or bottles from the tap. But I’m really stuck on that non-stainless issue. Why can’t they just make this model in stainless steel?!?!?! I’ve also read these can have dripping issues.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
