  • Just when you think you have seen it all #*!?

    They say a picture is worth a thousand words. "My grandson installed my new faucet, he is working for a plumber in California". It took him 2 days and I had to go and and install a new one because it would not get any water to it, as the supplies where kinked closed and lots of grip all over the place. Would have gotten more pics but the camera was wet from the tears of laughter and stopped working. Death does cure stupidity!

          Is that an an 8" by 4" reducer, or a kitchen to lav faucet adapter?
          That extra hole on the right is for cigarette butts.

            I'd give him a standing ovation if he was able to get the pop-up to work

                  Yeah, It's just like those science competitions where they give a kid some tooth picks, tape and some string, and say "build a bridge that can support 300lbs".

                      Hey Chauncey, I was just wondering.Since the 4" center lav faucet is in the center of kitchen sink, which makes the supply lines 2" to each side of center, and the existing kit sink holes are 4" to center of each side, did he have to also cut out new holes through the kitchen sink for the supply lines?

                          The part that worries me is that it took him two days.

                          Maybe he couldn't get the old faucet off so he improvised.

                            Sloan sells 8" center trim plates for their lav facuets. I have used them in places where they wanted the Sloan Optima faucet where there was a wide spread facuet. Next time I am there I will take a picture for you all.
