How to match new faucet with old roughin?

elphaba_gwFebruary 13, 2013

Long story short - but we have a newly installed wall-mounted faucet of kind of an obscure brand (Andre Collection) and I don't know the model number. Faucet is installed and looks beautiful but spout is 10 inches from the wall and the drain in our relatively small sink is 6 inches from the wall soo.. I want to see if I can buy replacement spout?
Or given I don't have the model number, I have found another wall mounted faucet that I like (different brand - Kohler) that even has parts available for ordering on the web. But... surely it isn't going to be this easy - will the spout from one wall mounted faucet likely fit into the spout "cavity" (or rougin in?) of another wall mounted faucet? There's a lot more data I can find out - diameter of spout for one thing but wanted to know from the experts if this is probably going to be a lost cause. Any tips?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

It may be doable, depends on how the spout attaches to the roughin. You mentioned the key items, diameter and thread size. If its a straight screw in attachment and the spouts are the same thread and diameter it should work.
