Thank you for the detailed feedback. Your review is definitely helpful for us to know our strengths and areas we need to work on. We're glad our improvements have been positive for you thus far and hope our continued efforts will also be helpful. Please let us know about the faucets. There could be something wrong or that's come loose that our maintenance team can take care of. And we're sorry the gate was broken; we're confident the most recent repair will be longer-lasting. Have a great day!
