Tub Faucets Disaster - All advice welcome!!
Long story short, I have my new airjet tub undermounted with a deck top of 1 1/4" silestone. Plumber just announced that the tub faucets -- Toto Soiree 5-hole set with handshower and diverter -- are incompatible with the deck. They cannot be installed on surfaces thicker than 7/8". Toto tech support confirms this. No valve extenders are available.
Silestone is thin-set onto tub surround and lip of tub, so we are fearful of removing any portion of it without possibly damaging tub.
So we need a 5-hole faucet set that will work, and that blends in with the other modern fixtures that are already installed (Toto Soiree single lever lav faucets, and Grohe EuroCube shower diverter). Tech docs on the EuroCube show maximum deck top depth of 7/16" plus it's a 4-hole, not 5-hole set.
I see pictures of faucets deck mounted on granite and solid surfaces online -- so I'm hopeful this can be resolved, but I'm coming up short in my panicked research today.
Any helpful leads? TIA CoolBeans
