How Do I Find The Model Number On A Grohe Faucet?
So, you need to know the model number to identify your Grohe faucet correctly. But where do you look? Generally, the model number isn’t printed on the tap itself. Although the logo is usually displayed, the model number is more elusive. Here are a few places to check:
Grohe faucets come with branded packaging that features the information you need, including the model number. Generally, the model number is printed underneath the faucet name, but you also might find it in the corner of the box, so check the entire package for the number.
Of course, most of us toss the packaging after installing the faucet, so if you don’t have the original box on hand, there’s no need to worry – simply try one of the following methods.
You can find the information you need if you don’t have the original box but still have the owner’s manual. Look for the model number in one of the top corners of the manual. Sometimes, the number is tucked in an inconspicuous location and printed in small text, so pay attention to the tiny text as well.
Or, if you don’t have the owner’s manual, you can also find this information on the installation sheet or specification sheet that comes with the faucet.
Since many folks don’t hang onto the original manual or instructions sheet, you might not have these packets on hand. Again, no worries – there are other options.
The faucet stem is another place you might find the model number. This piece extends beneath the faucet into the base cabinet. Look for the brand name engraved on the faucet stem – you should see “Grohe” or “Freiderich Grohe” engraved on this piece.
Once you find the brand name, look for the model number. It should be somewhere nearby. In some cases, it might have worn off due to the installation process and repairs over the years. If that’s the case, continue to the following method.
If you know what the faucet is called, use it to research the tap. You might be able to determine the faucet’s model number by entering the faucet name and brand into a search engine. For example, let’s say you have a Grohe Concetto kitchen faucet but don’t know the model number.
Type “Grohe Concetto faucet” into the search engine. Click on the faucet from one of the seller’s websites (Home Depot, Build.com, Grohe). Once the page opens, you should be able to find the exact model number on the faucet’s page. If you can’t easily find it on the main page, scroll down to the faucet details section and click on the “Installation Sheet” or “Specification Sheet.”
These pages generally open in a new tab as a PDF document and should have the information you need on the first page.
Alternatively, you can look up the style of faucet you have if you don’t know the exact name. For example, you could type in “Grohe bridge faucet parts” or “Grohe vessel faucet parts.” The search results may bring up the faucet you have, so you should be able to follow the above instructions to isolate the correct model number.
Ask The Manufacturer
Sometimes, isolating the model number is nearly impossible, especially with older faucets. If you’ve tried the above methods to no avail, it might be time to contact the manufacturer. Grohe has an online chat that you can use for assistance.
You’ll see a small blue chat icon in the bottom right corner of each screen on Grohe’s website. Click on the icon and select the issue from the options that pop up. The chat will connect you with a representative. Generally, they’ll ask for your email so they can reach out to you via email. Then, you can send them a photo, and they’ll help you identify the faucet.
So, if all else fails, this might be your best option.
How Do I Identify My Faucet Brand And Model?
While things are usually easy if you know the faucet brand and model, it’s not so simple if you’re clueless on both fronts. We get it – lots of folks toss the box and owner’s manual as soon as the faucet is installed. So, here are a few tips to correctly identify your faucet.
Look For A Logo
Most kitchen faucets feature a logo that’ll tell you the brand. Look for a small logo or imprint on the base of the faucet body. Sometimes, the logo is large and bold, but the brand might be more subdued in other cases.
For example, some Moen faucets feature a small imprint at the base of the faucet that reads the brand name. If you’re not looking closely, you might miss it. So, look around for faint imprints or brand logos that could tell you what you need to know.
You can also check the supply lines leading from the faucet. Sometimes, manufacturers attach an identifying tag to the supply lines, which will display the model number and brand.
Check For A Model Number
You’ll need the model number if you’re buying replacement parts for your faucet. This will allow you to correctly identify the tap and purchase the necessary parts. If you still have the instructions and owner’s manual from the installation process, you can find the model number printed there.
Otherwise, check for a tag on the faucet’s supply lines. If all else fails, contact the manufacturer for help identifying the faucet.
