Hi all,

Going to purchase some new faucets and I have heard that Perlick is the way to go. Issue that I'm encountering is that besides price and a few minor design changes, what is the difference between the 425SS and the 525SS? Based on what I've seen on the supplier sites, the 525SS is the new design and it is usually about $10 cheaper. Anything else I should know? Thanks!

The 425SS has a removable threaded nozzle; the 525SS doesn't.

I have the 525SS faucets and they've been just fine. (In all honesty, though, I kind of like the looks of the 425SS better.)

I have the newer Perlicks and I love em. Never having a stuck faucet is something you tend to take for granted. :)

Thanks for all the responses. Think I'll go with the less expensive model then.
