Plumber: Do the job with a util­ity faucet

The Hamilton Spectator - - STYLE - ED DEL GRANDE

Q: We’re mak­ing plans to fi­nally have a sink in­stalled in our laun­dry room and I have a faucet ques­tion. Should we look at kitchen or bath­room faucets to sup­ply wa­ter to the sink? Thanks in ad­vance.

A: Laun­dry sink faucets usu­ally de­pend on the size and style of the room. For in­stance, a large fancy laun­dry room with nice cab­i­nets, coun­ter­tops and an un­der­mount sink may look best with a high-end kitchen faucet.

But, in most cases (such as in my own house), the laun­dry room sink may be just a free-stand­ing tub sink.

In this case, I rec­om­mend you get a qual­ity util­ity style faucet. Some laun­dry sinks even come with match­ing util­ity faucets. Util­ity faucets are durable and ideal for com­mon clean­ing tasks. They usu­ally fea­ture a swing­ing spout with a threaded end to at­tach a hose and two lever han­dles to con­trol hot and cold wa­ter sep­a­rately.

Re­mem­ber, the point of a laun­dry sink is for work­ing, so get a util­ity faucet that works best for you.
