Then, what is the point of a pot filler?
Distinctive Features: A pot filler faucet is a swing-out faucet on a long, jointed arm, mounted over the stove. Pros: Saves you from lugging a heavy pot of water from the sink to the stove; great for filling pots that don't fit into the sink; faucet arm often folds back against the stove wall when it's not in use.
One may also ask, why do pot fillers have two valves? When looking at pot filler faucets, consider ones that have two separate on and off valves. You may think this is poor design until such time as you walk away from your pot filler and it has a slow drip. The second valve acts as a safety to minimize damage that might be caused by a dripping faucet.
Keeping this in consideration, how much does it cost to install a pot filler?
However, a basic, simply designed model should be more than adequate and cost around $250. The installation including materials, should run about $75 for a remodel or around $310 for an existing kitchen, depending upon the complexity of the project.
Where should a pot filler be placed?
The pot filler should be placed to the right or left of the cooking surface to avoid reaching over the cooking surface to access. The pot filler can be placed above the cooking surface. However, it can get hot from the surface burners or a large pot.
