i'm planning on installing one. 14 inches above the 36" range. smack center. we're going to have a subway tile backsplash. i'd love to hear opinions.....
My Dad had one in his last house. It was like a trash compactor to him. He never saw the need for one until he had it. Then he didn't understand why he didn't get one sooner.
I love mine. It's been 11 years since we built this house and I use the potfill daily. Naysayers will point out the possibility for leaks - but our water heater can leak and I don't want to go without hot water. Also, yes the water-filled pots do need to be emptied but with a potfill heavy lifting is reduced by half.
A potfill is a lovely luxury and something I would hate to be without.
NB: we have 'soft' water throughout the house but I made certain this spigot is 'regular' water. I use it to water house plants as well as the innumerable cooking chores. Until I had this, I never realized how often I needed/wanted just a little bit of water. Now, a simple turn of the handle and I'm set.
Ours is installed a bit higher than your 14" so my large stockpot fits. We also have a shelf above the cooktop, the potfill fits underneath it perfectly. Lovelovelove the potfill!
