kitchen faucet mod

Not long ago there was a thread about changing out the bathroom type faucet for one that was taller and easier to use. I was inspired to search for one that I saw in a foto which folded from more than 5 inches down to about 2 inches tall. I finally found it and my favorite technical director just installed it.

It is a huge improvement for kitchen staff.

I can't figure out how to upload pictures but will happily e-mail them along with purchase info and installation info if anyone wants to consider this mod.

This is a great idea! Can't wait to see the product details. If anyone in the group has figured out how to mount a sprayer nozzle on the faucet (maybe using a detachable extension hose) I'd love to know how that was done, as well. Thanks, everyone.

faucet

Here's the requested link for the folding faucet.

Whale Faucet Compact Mixer Short - Star Marine Depot

-if that doesn't work, it was ordered from
Boat Supplies and Marine Electronics at Star Marine Depot

Product ID: ZZ19532 MFG ID: TB4112

My technical guy had to invent a way to reframe the holes in the sink which don't match up. He took a piece of sturdy plastic, drilled the appropriate holes, drilled the matching holes in the sink, glued the plastic piece to the sink then mounted the faucet.

I can't describe better than that. (Just a gripe here, this forum is very difficult to use. )

If you want pictures of the installation, email me and I'll send.

Good luck

I bought that same faucet a few years ago. I returned it after seeing I made the measurement error that the holes didn't measure up. I wasnt willing to put effort to modding it to fit when there were other faucet options. (I returned it in favor of a swivel utility sink faucet with excellent extension and a quarter of the price)

I wish you could post your photos. Would enjoy seeing how it looks in your little kitchen.

Note: you can post photos by going to the "advanced" and then touch the paper clip to attach photos. Select your photo & Hit upload. Close window and preview your post. I usually post off my smart phone. Hope this helps?

Hi Ms. Handbuilder -- Can you refresh our memories about the make/model of the faucet replacement you installed? (Think you posted it previously, but I couldn't locate the thread.). Thanks for all terrific info, everyone!

This is the faucet I replaced the original one with. It came from Lowes for about 20- . It's called a laundry/utility sink faucet. Love the extension and ability to swivel that it offers for cleaning things in the sink.

the plastic used to accommodate the mis-matched holes shows up as a white base for faucet handles.

Also note the sink was rotated to better accommodate a right handed user.

The pics are rotated from vertical.

Hope this helps.
