I've noticed all my plumbing buddies on the PLUMBING newsgroup
haven't offered any opinions, while the DIYers are full of ideas.
Just use the Delta or Moen faucets. They work in such a way as to
avoid compression of the pieces. Both single handle and double handled
styles work by cutting the water off, and they're both easy to repair.
Actually, most of the name brand faucets work just fine. Just avoid the
cheapies that are more plastic than brass. Some name brands, for my
money, are over-engineered with too many moving parts.
And what the DIYers should do is urge you to seek advice from the
plumbing newsgroup in the future, rather than offering their own
Anecdotal/amateurish ideas. Why, I've heard that even women are allowed
to offer advice on these groups!
