Anyone know of a kitchen faucet that can lock in spray mode?

Posted by burntfingers (My Page) on

More specifically, I've realized that I like to keep my faucet in spray (rather than the normal aerated flow) mode, especially for prep work. I've been looking for a low-arc pullout faucet for the prep sink, but they all seem to revert to non-spray mode when you turn the water off. Since I've put in a tapmaster, it seems it would defeat the purpose of having the tapmaster (i.e., being hands-free) if I'd have to push the button on the faucet spout to get back into spray mode every time I turned on the water.

Does anyone know of a faucet that I could put in spray mode and have it stay there? Or should I just try to find an old-style faucet and buy one of those adapter thingies that you screw on the end of the spout?

This one does locks on. I just checked it. We've had it for a while and it is my favorite kitchen faucet ever. The spray is too powerful for me to leave on but may be Ok for you. It is great for blasting out the sink when cleaning it.

Our faucet locks in spray mode, but it is a High Arc. It is made by Newport Brass and is the Jacobean model.

The Delta Pilar pullout locks on spray or flow; it's a high-arc faucet, but I imagine it's not the only Delta faucet with a locking pullout.

My Delta Leland faucet locks in spray mode...and it is high-arc.

It's a pullout not a pull down but my Rugby does that.

Brizo Solna locks in the spray mode. Doesn't automatically reset when you turn faucet off either.

My 2 year old Kohler Karbon is in spray mode most of the time-until dh pushes a button and it streams. It does everything I could dream of and then more. It is articulating so it goes everywhere.

The Waterstone 5300 and 5400 models will both lock in either mode and the faucet head will also lock in the home position and will never "dangle" like most do.

Kohler Vinnata and Brizo Solna both lock in spray mode.

I have a another Delta with a rocker switch for spray, so you can keep it on spray. I leave it there most of the time.

My Kohler Vinnata does, the spray works really nicely.

Brizo Venuto also locks in spray mode.

I have a Whitehaus Metrohaus. It is supposed to revert to normal flow after turning the water off, and, as delivered, it did. However, both lascatx and I have experienced that, within a month or so, it no longer does that. Instead, it stays on spray, like you want!

Comment on the Waterstone - you do have to engage it each time but it latches once engaged. WS is in the process of redesigning the head and I am waiting for one of the new ones - for now, I lost my head... OK - I have a different head that doesn't latch...
But I still love my WS!
