The Bathroom Faucet Guide is for all things Bathroom Faucets!  Aka. “Lavatory” faucets in the industry, “Bathroom Sink Faucets”, etc.  This includes:

What will you find here?  Everything!  I have over 4 years of experience selling plumbing fixtures, including faucets (all kinds), and the big stuff, like sinks, toilets, tubs, etc.  Yes, even bidets (very popular in Europe…).  I even ran a big plumbing website at one time (ask nicely and I might tell you which :> ).

 I’ve created this blog to share some of the information I’ve accumulated and share it with everyone.  I still keep in touch or work with those in the Plumbing Industry, so I may actually know what I’m talking about…. Maybe…  Hopefully…  Well, it’s a blog, so read it, consider it and then give your opinion! 

PS – Be warned, I WILL be using plumbing puns.  There, notice given :).

I’m wondering if I can use a wideset lavatory faucet as a roman tub desk mounted tub filler?

Hi Al! Will have to write a short article on it but the short (comment answer) is I don’t suggest it. Flow rate is much lower – valve isn’t made for that much water – usually 2.2 GPM. Roman tubs usually do between 5 and 10+ GPM. Otherwise the water will be cold by the time the tub is full. You’ll also have some problems with water connections under the tub deck.

I’m looking for a single lever bathroom sink faucet in a PVD oil rubbed bronze finish. Any suggestions?

First thought I’d suggest browsing some of these: http://www.faucetdirect.com/index.cfm/f90/true/page/search:browse/categoryid/64/F2/bronze%20tones.
I would assume that if you want single-lever, you might also want a single-hole install. For PVD though, I’m not sure there are too many, as the bronze finish can be PVD, but the “oil-rubbed” finish is applied after the fact and can’t be vapor-deposited, if you know what I mean :). Some of the better ones I’ve seen though are Danze’s ORB finish – I think that might actually be pretty close and holds up well from what I’ve seen. Admittedly, it does depend on what kind of style and every-day use it will see, if you are worried about wear & tear.
