Adding side sprayer to kitchen faucet?


Hi,

I want to buy a two-hole bridge sink faucet that does not have a side sprayer.
Is it possible to buy the sprayer separately and plumb it in underneath the sink?
How big of a deal is this?

Thanks

No, it isn't possible. If you plumb it in under the sink, you are leaving the spray mechanism and hose under full pressure all the time ; they are not designed for that. Faucets with spray have diverter mechanism inside of them that tell water which way to go.

You have to either buy a faucet with a spray or you don't get one.
