Hi Greggo,
I had quite a hard time getting a faucet that would work in my 17A. !st. try was a nice faucet ordered on line ... forget through Amazon I think .... turned out was ridiculous too tall. ETI did installation anyway ... then called me. Faucet was so tall that the single lever valve would hit my kitchen window before achievinging full open and handle wouldn't allow closure of window blind .... REJECT! Next try was a low angle single action faucet ... it fit size wise but wasn't installed until a couple days before my orientation .... ooops it leaked through the tap opening and was judged faulty. I'm trying to get Amazon to take it back ($80). Tammy suggested that I try their 2017 stock faucet .... brushed SS, removable spray end, single handle valve control. I said OK and I am pleased. Its a great looking and operating kitchen faucet ...., I'm pleased to have it! Wish I had a picture to share but I didn't take one. Best to ask Tammy for an image. I'm happy and would use this one again if I was going to start all over. That IS a recommendation!

Hope this helps you. Rease did tell me that they have never had so much trouble over a faucet. Sometimes the path to perfection takes a bit longer .. eh?

Tom

Hey, nice to know they changed their stock faucet. I'll bet lots of folks won't need to order their own faucet now. Wonder if that was the style many were ordering and they decided to go with the flow (HA!) and use that type in the future.

I'll still stick with the one we have stashed in the attic, awaiting a trip to ETI later this year.

I have the stock plastic faucet that came with my 2008 Escape.
When I turn the tap, water comes out.
I'm not sure what all the angst is about.

I'll have a look at my phone memory tomorrow. I think Tammy sent me one and I probably kept it. If I can find it I will post it.

Ooohh, another leak from the upcoming unveiling, new sink faucet. That was one of my peeves, the old style always ended up adding water to the counter top. Looking forward to the improvements.

It'll be interesting to get the make and model. I would change to that from the 2 handle faucet in our 2014 19.

The Junior style of faucet wasn't available in Canada, so I bought it and will haul it up to ETI when the time comes.

It comes in other colors, besides the black (anthracite) that I got - biscotti, truffle, cafe brown, cinder and maybe something else. It measures a smidge over 6" high and has a reach of 7.75". My husband printed out to scale the side view Blanco has on their web site and I plunked it over an area the same size as the sink and it looks like it'll work just fine.

Here's the link:

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004QLCOTO/...+torino+faucet
While I don't know about that particular faucet , I have found that with
low/pull out faucets ( though very attractive ) sometimes the hoses loosen and develop a little leak , not visible
looking at the faucet ( because of it's design ) - however becomes noticeable when there is a puddle in the cabinet below . For that reason I much prefer the higher goose neck type ......if the hose loosens it would drip down to the sink . the hoses are generally very easy to tighten - one just needs to know .....
