Bathroom Sink Install
 
How are the holes for a faucet determined?

I see reference to 4" and 8" on center. How do I determine what mine are?

Measure center of hole to center of hole, if it's 4" then it's 4" center.

I find it is easier to measure LH edge to LH edge or RH edge to RH edge rather than guess at center.

You are not trying to measure 1/16" here. It will either be 4" or 8" as Ron has said, so it is fairly easy to tell.

That would be the two outer of the three holes correct?

That's correct.

Thanks Ron. The installer screwed up. I had a granite top cut for a vanity and the installer came by prior to measure. He saw the faucet I wanted to install and noted the measurement from the box which said, "compatible with 4" centers". Well, I picked up the granite top and notice right away that the holes appeared to far apart. After measuring, they are 8" on center.

I will take the faucet back today.:mad:

Thanks for your help!
