I'm in the planning stages of a Kitchen remodel and been intrigued by these pot fillers on Houzz. They seem like a good deal compared to the big brands.

Polished Chrome [houzz.com] - $191.47
Brushed Nickel [houzz.com] - $207.76
Oil Rubbed Bronze (looks more cooper) [houzz.com] - $207.90

Does anyone have tips or recommendations for installing these? Thanks

Measure the height in an actual kitchen before plumbing it out. I estimated the height in mine and it was way too high.

I cook a LOT and I'm not sure how much I would use something like this. Even if I did have a pot too large to fit in my sinc, I would just set it on the counter and use the pull out hose from the end of my faucet. For $200 you can get a much nicer looking primary faucet. For those of you who bought this, what is the use case? I'm genuinely interested.

Totally agree, I think it just screams "gourmet kitchen" when there is a pot filler on the wall above the stove. Trendy.

These are no name brands? At $200? Damn check amazon, plenty of unbranded pot fillers in all kinds of styles for well under $100

I love mine - we added it while building so there wasn't really an addition plumbing cost. I don't think I'd have done it otherwise.

It's nice to fill up a big pot and not have to move the pot which is heavier with water. We got the Anova sous vide cooker and that's made us grateful to have it.

Definitely not a necessity but worth the price of the faucet and maybe it's worth the install if you've got the money or can handle the work yourself.

First off this isn't a good deal, check links below.

I have done the "planning" for DYI, so I'll share...still got two sitting in my garage. Was gonna do deck, but then decided on wall mount. Deck mount is significantly easier install if you have regular countertops, you can mount it right in. Wall mount will require being next to a stud, and you'll have to tear up the drywall around the install location to get a secure mount.

I've considered putting in the work to install it just for the espresso machine, our pot filling is measured (rice, ramen, etc) at least 30% if the time, so I wouldn't use it that much for that.

Easiest install is to just run a long heavy duty, braided SS "ice maker" hose from the nearest cold water line. Tap right into it and get an adapter to go straight into the pot filler. I started to run mine from water line in basement, tapped it ran a short line to a "5 year" water filter:
https://www.amazon.com/Watts-Capa...B000E77I0Y
And then I'm gonna run it straight up next to the stud in between the drywall. I'm planning on doing a mosaic backsplash in conjunction (doing a backsplash at the same time will save a lot of drywall touch up after install).
Play with the pot filler in planned location and extend it in an out before starting. If you want the swing or level reversed, many of them allow that.

Again, this is not a good deal: get it on amazon. Here is nice a Danze for under $200:
https://www.amazon.com/Danze-D205...002R0ERGO/

And here is a $400+ Danze for $115 (only 8 left):
https://www.amazon.com/Danze-D205...002PE5W84/

Last tip: many of these generic pot fillers won't have your standard threads, and if I recall, Lowe's didn't even have the adapter I needed, so you may have to order on amazon.

Hope this helps someone

i've seen these in use over commercial woks in chinese restaurants,
to hydrate dishes and quickly rinse woks between meals being made,
with the soiled water running down a gutter around the flame hole,

but can't imagine anyone really needing this on a home range top.
i mean how hard can it be to carry the water from the sink Confused

We had no intention of getting one installed until our general asked us to pick one - he said we wouldn't regret it. We certainly don't, and for the past three years we've been using it daily.

I guess it's like one of those strawberry corers or cherry pitters - you scoff at it until you get one for a gag gift, then you don't know how you've ever lived without one (household with kids, mind you). Now that I've developed mommy tendonitis, I'm even more happy I don't have to lug a filled pot or water boiler around (and yes we have a pull out faucet).

If you do get one though, I would look out for a couple of things:

1) double switches, so you need to turn both to turn the water on. This feature has saved my stove multiple times.

2) measure the distance between the middle of a pot of water on your primary burner and the wall and make sure it can reach. I didn't do this and it's always a pain when I just need to add a little more water to an already boiling, heavy pot.

3) try to stick to a known and respected brand, for the same reasons you would for another faucet - but even more so because there's no sink to catch a leak here.

Hope this helps. It didn't add too much (relatively) to our massive remodeling, so I can't comment on its worth or cost to you to install, but for me it's been a nicely unexpected addition.

Thanks for the info, I'll have to take a in depth look at Danze. Looks like Danze and this company are comparable on http://www.starcraftcustombuilders.com.

My mom likes to cook a lot too Big Grin , but she has arthritis in her hands so it harder for her to move heavy pots and pans. I think getting this would help her. Thanks!
