Settle this pot filler debate...
My new pot filler had developed a small leak. Friend of mine took it off and reinstalled and the leak is fixed but she thinks I'm crazy to have a faucet with no drain and constant pressure behind it that's only attached to the wall with 3 tiny set screws. She envisions some disaster happening when I'm not home in which the faucet gives way and flies of the wall and floods the house.
My reasoning is, this is ridiculous. That a pot filler faucet is no different from the plumbing in your tub/shower. Am I correct? Or am I just nuts to even have this thing in the first place? I should add that I AM considering having the plumber install a shut off valve for the pot filler as the plumbing shares a wall with my guest bath and it ought to be pretty simple to add one there with an access panel. Is this a sensible solution to the fear of the flying projectile faucet?
Thanks in advance for your advice!
