Recommendations for a laundry tub above deck faucet


I need to replace the laundry tub faucet in my basement. It is above deck, similar to: Central Brass 0466
hmmm wont let me post link....

I am seeking recommendations for a high quality brass replacement.
The one in my basement is probably 50 yo.
If any mfg has laundry tub faucets with newer style cartridge valves that are easy to replace, that is a plus that I'd like to know about.
While I am price conscious, I am not adverse to paying for the quality.

The ones from HD, Lowes, etc seem to be junk.
Thanks a lot for your help
-John

Re: Recommendations for a laundry tub above deck faucet


I've used wolverine brass back in my repair days. I think they only sell to plumbers but the policy may have changed since it has been a while. The tub shower and faucets are cartridge based. The laundry faucets do use washers but they are very heavy and high quality.

On the repair side I used to hand the customer the Delta KS and the wolverine. Wolverine usually won due to the basic weight.

I've discovered that Gerber makes a laundry deck mount cartridge model:

I have no idea about Gerber quality. Cartridge valves are appealing to me for their longevity (if they are well designed & mfg).

The wolverine looks to be a good faucet, with a heavy disk, will probably outlast me.

Thanks for the responses.
