Q. "What is a 'backsplash' faucet?"

Q. "My commercial kitchen sink has a backsplash and the back of the sink will be pushed against a wall. What parts do I need in order to make the connection?"
A. For mounting backsplash faucets in sinks that will be settled against a wall, you will need to order 90° close elbow adapters which connect to the faucet inlets and allow you to connect flexible supplies from below versus straight back against the wall.
Q. "What is a centerset faucet?"
A. A centerset faucet is a lavatory faucet with handles and a spout combined into a single part with a fixed distance (non adjustable) measured from the center of the cold handle to the center of the hot handle. Can also be a single handle faucet measured between the centers of the two mounting posts.
Q. "What does 'swiveling seat disks' mean?"
A. Swiveling seat disks reduce friction on the rubber washer which helps to extend the life of the washer and lowers maintenance costs.
Q. "What does 'Adjustable centers' mean?"
A. Faucets are normally measured from the center of the cold inlet to the center of the hot inlet. This measurement must match the distance the holes in the sink, or the pipes coming out of the wall, are apart from each other where the faucet will be mounted. Adjustable centers mean that the distance can be adjusted according to the faucet installation provisions. Mistakes happen and pipes installed through walls may not always be exactly perfectly centered. Wall mounted faucets normally use offset adapters known as eccentric couplings to provide an adjustment depending how the couplings are turned during installation. They can be turned toward each other for the closest distance or turned away from each other for the greatest distance, or somewhere in between if need be.
