My house was built in 1920, and I suspect the bathrooms were redone in the 1950s. They feature charmingly tacky colored porcelain fixtures, including this sink, with cross handled faucets. It’s all good, and I like the retro look, except that I live in California, where we have a huge drought occurring. I have taken the faucets apart and replaced all the rings and packing, and, yet, they still leak like anything. I do not want to jettison my nifty sinks (I actually have three of them, all in different colors), but I want to quit wasting water. I’m thinking the thing to do is buy new faucets, but I’m worried about whether they will fit on my old sink. I was speculating about whether wall-mount faucets would work- does anyone have any advice for a successful resolution to this problem?
Thank you for your time and expertise,
