Height of pot filler. Deciding today!

Posted by 2LittleFishies (My Page) on

How high should the main piece be? I figure too high will splash but needs to work with larger pots.
Any advice on placement ??
Ours is the Moen Showhouse.

My spout is 16 inches above my stove top. This was high enough to clear my largest pot. If I have a very small pot, I will lift it to the spout, but it is a good height for 95 % of my pots. Hope this helps.

Mine is 17" up. Same reasoning as breadandsuch.

I took our big canning pot, and used that as my measurement. That's in the last kitchen. This one there is no potfiller.

Thanks, I did 15" for now (I'm short) buy GC said it can easily be moved up or down a bit later... Thanks so much!

I know it's what you want, but I never could understand a pot filler.

I dont like the idea of a faucet without a drain under it. With limited use, I wonder how stale the water gets. I'm afraid of filling a pot so that I wouldn't be able to lift to empty it....and you do have to empty it at some point which is when it's fullest, hottest and most dangerous to lift. Filling a pot with cold water isn't so scary....and that way I know I can lift it.

Just my POV FWIW.
