High arc faucet-do you hit your head?

VADawgFebruary 27, 2014

Ok another question- I love the Moen Weymouth faucet, which is pretty high arc. When you bend over to wash your face in the bowl of the sink, do you bump your head or forehead? I could easily see this happening but if not, I love the look of this faucet. Has this happened to anyone with a high arc faucet? Any other issues with high arcs? Thanks in advance!

Yes...I happened to me. But it really would depend on its location given the various configurations of sinks. If it is far enough back from where you bend over to wash your face, it might or might not bang you in the noggin. I suggest you make a cardboard mock up and bend over it to see if it would be a problem for you.

I stayed in a place for three weeks that had that very situation. I had to move the arc off to one side when I leaned in to wash my face or I would have taken one between the eyes.

Thanks, everyone. I went with the Delta Cassidy high arc but it's really not that high, especially compared to some of the other ones. I guess we shall see... Thanks!
