cross/post Wall mount tub spout that pulls out??? Tub fixtures qu

jterrilynnJuly 13, 2014

Hello! Maybe I�m using a wrong search term. Background: I�m remodeling the master bath. The bathroom had a hideous vomit colored roman tub from 1983. Due to budget and area size I�m putting in a white sleeker version of a roman with an incorporated white skirt. The shower is separate in another area. These tubs can be a PITA cleaning as far as reaching goes. Husband does not want a deck mount. The area had a standard setup with a wall spout and above that a single lever hot and cold. I want to keep this pretty simple as far a plumbing goes, can one get a pullout wall mounted tub spout? What do you call them? I want to be able to spray the end and sides for easy cleaning. Any ideas?

Cross post for info!
ItâÂÂs looking like there is no such thing as a wall mount pull-out spout. I guess what IâÂÂm looking for is a Tub faucet with hand shower set OR Tub mixer with hand shower set?
If you have this set-up could you PLEASE post a picture and tell me what you have and if you like it!

I have a wall mounted faucet with handset. It has 2 handles and may not be what you are looking for. It might fill slower than a standard tub filler too. Hansgrohe, Axor is the brand. There may be more contemporary styles in Axor, I don't know. Symmons is linked below for deck mounted and hand shower. I like them too.

Here is a Symmons tub filler with hand shower and one lever control. This brand is a reliable brand I've read, and often used in schools, etc. There are many design styles of each configuration, it this one doesn't suit you, look at the other designs.

Enduring, really like your setup! My new (1983) house is sort of a contemporary-ish, transitional eclectic something or another. I found a great deal on Hansgrohe lever sink faucets and want something that will jive. There is a Hansgrohe model similar to your tub filler but with levers that I need to stare at some more.

Boy IâÂÂm a dingbat; once I used your key words âÂÂTub Fillerâ I got all kinds of hits. Just a little flip of the wordage and Presto!

The good news is there are a lot more choices out there than I thought (although not huge). The bad news is that I have never heard of most of the brands. For example: La Torre has some real nice looking stuff at a reasonable price. The few reviews were all good on the product itself but bad that it doesnâÂÂt come with some sort of rough-in valve thingy that is hard to find (I guess).
Next, I came across this wall mount Baril from the fantasy collection that I really like. But who has heard of Baril? Not me! ItâÂÂs only $380 and must be too good to be true. However, here is the site and IâÂÂm almost convinced to give it a try.

Now that I have the right search terms my problem is finding something nice that is not so traditional or overly modern. When I do find something I like it has a name I have never heard of or itâÂÂs something wack from China.

That is a very nice design, but like you, I'd have reservations using something I'd never heard of. I'd want to use a tried and true brand, so that I could rely on the fixture and the rough-in behind the wall. I'd skip the bargains in this case and get known product quality.

Have you seen this website linked below? They have ranked faucets. I think there is a lot of good info on it. I don't see your Baril listed.

Enduring, you have been extremely helpful and I really appreciate it!!!
I think IâÂÂm going with the Hansgrohe Axor with the lever handles. The Axor montreux does not seem to have a matching single hole lever basin faucet but as the faucets are in another room I maybe able to use the single hole Axor Uno or the Talis C. The Uno has a open loop lever that doesn't show in picture.

Still deciding on which of these fausets.
Hansgrohe Talis c

Or Handgrohe Axor Uno

I bought this 60 x 42 tub. ItâÂÂs not what I had in mind but it fits the space so I decided to give up the battle with husband. Looks like I may be able to rest my arms on those ledges while soaking so it might not be so bad.

We are buying this toilet. I had no opposition on this pick. Toto Vespin II.

Do you see anything that hurts your eyes (besides the tub as I have to go with that)? Think I can get away with one of those faucet picks? The vanities are in another room.

I wonder if the Talis C can sit right on the countertop or shallow lip single hole over-mount sink like the Axor Uno one. GRRR another thing to look up! I don't want that mount plate thing.
