New style faucet

Escape is offering a choice of the new style "J" faucet standard in the Maple or the older style "P" faucet present in the oak interior. It is hard to tell from the pictures, but can anyone post the height of the "J" faucet to get an idea of it's size and does it work well inside the Escape. Thanks for any help....

Has anyone had both and have a preference? Jim, you may have to bite the bullet and try something new and fill the rest of us in!

The only thing that would lead me to the top as preference is if it swivels all the way left or right. the one i have, lower, doesn't. (it swivels but not 180) not a huge deal, but sometimes i'd like it to be out of the way.

I fiddled with the new style faucet while visiting the showroom in December, and liked it a lot. I don’t recall how far it swivels, but loved how it didn’t block the sink as much as the older faucet. I liked it so much that I inquired if it would be available as a retrofit or for customer self install on older rigs. They said they anticipated having them in stock around now (March) and they should cost ~$100CAN.

I don't see the point of having a kitchen faucet with a removable snake-out bulky nozzle for washing dishes in a sink that small. Brushed nickel is nice, though.

It’s useful for some things, eg things that don’t entirely fit in the sink, eg a cutting board etc. Also useful if you need to direct the spray in a particular direction that you can’t otherwise achieve. I’m our dishwasher, both at home and on the road, and I use the pull out sprayer regularly in both situations.

Your point is moot though, as both current faucet options from Escape are pull out sprayer types. It wouldn’t surprise me if they discontinue using the old style altogether though, not just with the maple interior.
