Q. "What is a widespread faucet?"
A. A widespread faucet includes three separate parts that measure from 8 to 16 inches from center to center.
Q. "What is a mini-widespread (4 inch centerset)?"
A. It is similar to a widespread but with a 4 inch center to center instead of 8 or 16 inches.
Q. "I have a hole in kitchen sink for an air gap. I'd like to use it for a faucet. Can I just by pass that air gap?"
A. You could but we absolutely do not recommend that. Air gaps have an important (health safety) function and should be kept on the deck of the sink or kitchen counter.
Q. "What should I look for when purchasing a faucet?"
A. You should be asking: Is it easy to get parts? Easy to repair and replace parts? Is it a true "washer less" (doesn't mean it won't leak, it will eventually anyway but is usually easier to operate and easier to repair) or not? Where is it made? What type of warranty? How long has this model been made? Does the manufacturer stand behind their products and how long has that company been in business? Is the company that you are buying the faucet from reputable and been in business long enough so that you know you can trust them?
Q. "Why do some faucets cost so much more than others?"
A. Some faucets are simply made better than others with higher quality material such as solid brass, which generally provides a superior look, performance, and durability. While you may pay more for a quality faucet, you're likely to receive more value for your money as a result of longer, more reliable, trouble-free service. Paying more doesn't always mean you'll get a better value, but generally, a more expensive faucet (just like a more expensive automobile, etc) does give better and longer service. We recommend that you DO shop around once you know the exact brand and model that you want, as you can avoid paying extra for the exact same faucets if you spend time to shop. Or save time and money by buying from us right away instead of after a few hours of searching - our prices are very low and that is because of our low overhead and the fact that we have been doing this for so long.
Q. "Can a hose spray model be installed in a 3-hole kitchen sink?"
A. Sure, many faucet manufacturers offer faucets designed for one or two holes. Most common sink configurations have either 3, 4 or 5 mounting holes on the sink top. Look under the sink to determine the number of holes in your sink because the holes may be covered by an existing faucet. Also, note that once you have purchased a faucet without a sprayer that you generally can't just add a sprayer. You need to decide before you purchase a kitchen faucet whether you want a sprayer or not.
Q. "Any helpful hints?"
A. ALL faucets WILL leak and need servicing eventually. A good idea is to once or twice yearly, open and close all shut off valves under all faucets (if any). This will help keep them free of sediment and will allow them to be closed when needed.
Q. "What type of faucets can I use in the bathroom?"
A. The two most commonly used bathroom sink (lavatory) faucets are the 4-inch centerset and the widespread.
Q. "What does the word 'grif' stand for or what does it mean?"
A. "Grif" is Spanish word for tap, as in faucet.
Q. "What is a centerset?"
A. It is a lavatory set that is 4" center to center from handle to handle.
