Re-using a kitchen faucet after new counter and sink installation
auasheer

Hello,

I'm having a new Quartz counter-top/sink installed in my kitchen. In order to save money I wanted to re-use my existing faucet. It is a 6 yr old stainless steel builder grade faucet with a separate pullout hose and no soap dispenser. After doing some research, it seems like most people replace the faucet with the sink/countertop. Is it ok for me to reuse the faucet and replace it later one when my budget allows. Or would it be better to buy a new faucet (if so, why?).

Thank you for any and all helpful information.

I would bite the bullet and buy new faucet. Why? Because what you may want could require different hole configeration.

Compromise elsewhere and get a new faucet, one that fits.

Delta faucet is your next stop.

Here's the thing, installation of a faucet in your new counter top is already incorporated into the cost of the project, in essence it's free. If you wait, then you'll be paying for a service call, which will cost you about as much as the new faucet itself, not to mention inflation on the cost of a faucet when you purchase at a later date (assuming a few years have passed ).

In addition, a fresh, new faucet is going to make your new counters really pop and look great, you will be glad you did it.

I second the nod for Delta, though Price Pfister is a good choice as well.
