Mystery Fixture


I have a ten year old kitchen sink with faucet. The tubing that runs from the water inlet to the faucet is leaking from the inside. I want to replace the
tubing but it seems to be some odd design. I took the tubing and faucet to
Lowes, Home Depot, and a Plumbing supply company here in San Antonio and they all tell me I have to get the new faucet and tubing from the company that it came from. Unfortunately there is nothing, anywhere, to say who made this apparatus. The problem is in the connection from the tubing to the water inlet. The tubing end slips over the water inlet and its
held in place by a plastic clip.
Have anyone seen this before. DO you know who made it?

usually the indication of make/manufacturer is somewhere on the handle. the set screw cover should have something, or take the handle off and look underneath for any parts that are stamped. that's how i figured out the make and model of my kitchen faucet.

Looks like the clip on my Delta but I guess other companies could use similar technology.

There's no Id anywhere on the sink or faucet. I even tore some of the
cabinet out, to look,and found nothing.

I checked Delta and the connection method is similar but one wouldn't
be able to replace the other.

Thanks for your comments.

Right now I'm going thru the original specs from the builder and all it says about the kitchen sink is It's Option#6 Virkrell White with single lever pull out faucet.
