No drain

Posted by misty_morn (My Page) on

The water pipes that were to go to the beverage center were installed (by mistake) into the island. They are across the room from one another. Before I got to the site of the construction, the cement floors with radiant heat were poured and set.

Needless to say, I am very disappointed. My plan was to place the coffee maker, margarita machine, sodas (in small cooler), etc in this area. The plumber has run a water line to the beverage counter/center. But there is no drain. I am still debating about putting a faucet in this area. If not a sink, I've also considered a large metal bowl to catch overflow from faucet, ice, etc. Crazy?? Does anyone have any other ideas, suggestions? Please---

Thanks in advance

Code does not permit installing a faucet unless you have an approved drain.

RE: No drain

I'll go looking to see if potfillers are therefore not allowed by "Code".
Many taps for filtered water are low-flow.
Many are made with springs so the handle cannot stay on.
You can see them on the web by searching for "glass fillers"

The lack of a drain is still a big problem. Cleanup functions would require you to go somewhere else to change the water in a pail. (think coffee grinds!)
