Deck mounted pot filler


Installing a deck mounted pot filler beside our stove. Between said counter is a 6 ft counter, a dishwasher, and then the sink with the pumbing. So I'd have an 18" (under the sink), plus 24" plus 6 ft, swing the corner to the far side of an 18" counter run to pumb. Can I couple stainless flex hose, or do I have to run copper to the last 18" and then use flex hose to attach to the filler itself? I need to be able to move that last 18" cabinet now and again so I don't want to anchor it with hard plumbing.

Thanks Relle

just connect with PEX...cheaper and easier.

PEX has been allowed for use in MA for 3 or 4 years, now. Just make sure you get PEX that's approved for potable water - you can't use the heat PEX.

I assume that PEX requires special fittings? Special tools??? (So I don't get taken when I go to the store)

you need a crimping tool. Supply houses will rent one or use a sharkbite fittings for the little work you are doing. These simply slide onto the pex and to the existing copper or CVPC lines you have now and you are done.
