I've read some favorable posts here about the Tapmaster foot controls for faucets, and am intrigued by a hands-free kitchen faucet operation. But I don't want a solution like the Tapmaster which puts the foot-controlled valve in series with the regular faucet valve: I want the faucet to always work normally (move the regular valve, water comes out) no matter what, with no latching or pre-opening required. I also want to be able to walk up to the faucet and use it hands-free without any prior preparation.
I'm thinking about getting foot-pedal valves (e.g. from T&S Brass) and a remote-valve kitchen faucet (there's one in the Kohler Simplice line, for example) and connecting the faucet input to both the regular valve and the foot valve with a (likely homemade) wye. Has anybody done this successfully?
