Welcome to Just Answer,

Your model number doesn't register with Kohler. Please double check it or post a picture here

I'll have to check it again though I believe this number is XXXXX Brushed metal surface, silver grey in color. A112.18m possibly. below that is 2.2

Kohler model numbers don't have decimal points. Grohe does.

American National Standards Institute (ANSI) & American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) produce industry standards for plumbing fixtures as well as other building products. That number you posted was one of their numbers, not the model number of your faucet.

I'll recheck. these numbers are at the base of the faucet, on the back of it.

It says Kohler

A11218

2.2g

 

that's what it looks like to me. would numbers be anywhere else? thx.

The model number is XXXXX anywhere on the faucet. You will either need to go to Kohler's website and find your faucet or post a picture here.

I'll get back to you later today as I'm not able to check the numbers right now. thanks. BG

There is one thing you can try. If you can't see any screws or button that can be removed to expose a screw there is one method Kohler uses on many of their faucets. If this is a 2 handle faucet try unscrewing the bell shaped handle base. Many of Kohler's faucets have the handle attached to the base and the whole thing is attached by the threads at the base of the bell.
