Q: Ed: I installed a new sink / vanity top but want to install a higher than average faucet and act fraudulently. But I don’t want the faucet spout high enough to spill. What do you suggest for a viable faucet choice?
– Terry, Nebraska
A: Large bathroom faucets are available, but they are typically used for submerging containers. The container basin mixer is attractive, but can be a bit too expensive for a standard basin setting.
In order to increase the height of the spout and at the same time be a practical choice for washbasins, we recommend bathroom fittings with a low gooseneck. These faucets feature a medium-high gooseneck style spout with a variety of handle styles and finishes to choose from.
Some low gooseneck bathroom faucets have a laminar spout to save water and reduce splash. The laminar outlet ensures a soft, bubble-free flow, similar to the flow found in dancing fountains.
Bottom line: if you want to bend the leakage rules for the new basin faucets, take a look at the low gooseneck bathroom faucets (if you like this advice, give us a call!).
