I'm wondering about good places to buy something like (exactly!) a
kitchen faucet online. My almost 100 year old house has a wall-mounted
faucet over a double porcelain sink, but I've been growing increasingly
aware of how preferable it would be to have one with a spigot with a
longer reach (my aching back tells me that!). The current one is 5.5"
from end to end, and I figure that a 10" reach would be about perfect
(it's hard to know without installing it and using it, though).
I went around to about all of the local B&M places I can think of and
found a few candidates:
One that looks about perfect, but is $250 + tax. Ceramic cartridges.
It's the only one I found that's within 2.5" of 10 inches spigot length!
One with a spigot that is 12.5 inches long, and I'm afraid it's really
too long but wouldn't know without living with it for a bit. $50+tax.
Old style washers, made in Taiwan or China.
There's some others, but the ones above are at the top of the list.
Since I had my water main replaced this year, I think I can get along
with ceramic cartridges, so that would be a plus.
Before I spring for one of the ones described, I figured I should try to
find something better online. I'd appreciate comments and/or links.
