Deck-mounted pot-filler - behind cooktop
I'm starting my kitchen remodel very soon here and trying to finalize on the cooktop cabinet.
As far as I understand, I have to go with a deck-mounted pot-filler since the cooktop is on an outside wall and I live in a cold climate (below 0 temps), so cannot go with wall-mounted.
My cooktop is 36" wide and 21" deep, in a 36" cabinet (depth is flexible). The cabinet will be pulled out 3" with a 1" counter overhang (approx).
How much room do I need behind the cooktop to run the plumbing for the pot-filler? The faucet base is 2 1/4". Should this run in the cabinet, or behind the cabinet, or does it matter? Any issue with this approach?
Thanks for any help you can give me!
