This *has* to have been covered, but I'm having trouble finding it. Is it recommended that the "throw" of a faucet from stem to outflow be the same distance as from the stem to the sink drain?
A couple years ago now I bought a really pretty sink and faucet for it from a local plumbing place that failed to alert me to this parameter. The three-hole setup fell far, far short of the center of the bowl and there was so much splashing all over the wooden top that everything's just rotten and failing now. :( I'm going to install a stone top, move the bowl forward and change out the faucets.
But I'm not sure what sort of a faucet to get at the end of the day. Should it be really a broad throw then? Or just bigger than it currently is? Do you need pictures or is there a rule of thumb for this?
