Default Perlick faucet

Wondering if buying a perlick combo would be cheaper than buying all the parts seperatly. I have only started looking for them so I have not found any special places to get them and only see the bigger stores.

Do deals ever come along on them?

The cheapest place seems to be ritebrew.com but I don't know if it's cheaper as a set with shank, collar, and tailpiece from someone else.

I picked up a couple of this package recently, and I'm pretty happy. I think the bundle is reasonable and the transaction was seamless.

I wanted a forward seal model (cleaner IMO), and the 575's leaked on me after a while (I'm not alone, all though some have had no issues at all).

I got this same combo and I'm happy with it.

I have the 525SS (the 630's predecessor) and I did experience the leaking issue, it was solved by $2 worth of new orings.

They are worth 22 damns, actually

They're good faucets, and surely preferable to rear sealing units...

Cheers!

I changed the rings in mine 525's as well, and it proved to be a temporary solution. Just my experience. The 630's are supposed to be better engineered, we will see.
