I put one in my kitchen, this is a great asset to have for any kitchen, I understand what you mean about the hose getting cruddy. Mine has been in place for about 3 years and when it starts to get gross looking I get a rag and clean it off with a little bleach. Other than that the hose and the parts the are incorporated within the faucet are guarenteed with the life of the faucet. If properly installed, this should last a very long time. In addition to that if the hose is in need of replacement, they are not that hard and somewhat inexpensive to replace, all the connections are visible under the sink and also exposed when you pull out the faucet head.
