Please help me choose an air gap to match my faucets

kaysdFebruary 20, 2013

I am going a little nuts over the small details at this point. I live in CA, where an air gap is mandatory. I know I could just remove the air gap after inspection and pop in a soap dispenser, but with some of the plumbing issues we've had, I'm not sure I want to mess with it.

We have a large single bowl sink. Brizo Solna faucet will be in the center and Waterstone filtration faucet will be toward right corner, with an air switch button in between. The air gap and Elkay soap dispenser will be to the left of the main faucet. All fixtures are polished chrome.

Which of the 3 air gap options do you think will look best with my faucets and soap dispenser? Also, any recommendations for a sleek air gap switch?

Brizo Solna

Waterstone Parche filtration faucet (base is 2 13/16" h x 1 3/8" diameter)

Elkay Gourmet soap dispenser (3 1/8" h x 2" diam at base and 1 1/8" diam at top)

Westbrass air gap (2 3/4" h x 1 3/4" diam). Very simple shape, has a round disk at bottom like faucets.

Waterstone air gap (2 5/8" h x 2" diam). A little fancier and more expensive.

Blanco air gap (2 1/4" h x 2 1/8" diam) Has the round disk at the bottom, but with a fancier shape.

Sorry you're stuck with an air gap. I love my Elkay Gourmet soap dispensers and think option A (Westbrass) looks best.

Yeah, I'm not excited about the air gap, but DH would never let me hear the end of it if we had a preventable incident because I didn't like how the air gap looked.

I like A as well. If you have hard water, like I do (L.A.), the rings on C would get gunky. They might get gunky anyway-in general I am a fan of less crevices to clean.

Gorgeous faucets!

Thanks, Drybean. I can't wait to have my sink and faucets installed. Counter templating is Monday, so it will be a few more weeks.

As a bonus, the Westbrass air gap is the cheapest of the 3.
