Re: Need to find new sink aerator, company won't return calls!

my approach in this kind of situation is to go to a wholesaler, and acknowledge that you are going to be a nuisance - you want something that costs little, and there is no way they can make money on you.

I did this when I needed an aerator for a Kohler faucet, and they special ordered it, no charge.

There ae still people that care.

In any case, you likely have one of many Kona faucets in your area. Some distributor handled them.

Walking in is better than calling.

Good luck.

Seems like I didn't have much luck; nobody around here has ever heard of them. I went to the local plumbing supply place where I was told "I've been doing this for 40 years and have never heard of Kona. You may as well just replace the damn thing."

I guess that's what I'm going to have to do.

Consider a generic plastic aerator until you get around to changing out the faucet. Whatever you put in now may be "dated" in 5 years anyway.
