I am considering buying a Grohe faucet for my kitchen but noticed where they recommend a 6" clearance between the back edge of the sink and the backsplash. I'm not sure that I will have that much room, but I am wondering why it would take so much room. It is the Ladylux plus model 33759KD0. Has anyone installed one of these without the recommended 6" countertop space between sink and wall?
As far as price goes, my local retailer quoted $600 price range, but I found it for $358 at www.homecenter.com. I'm not familiar with the site and I have been trying to find people who have ordered from them to see if they were satisfied with the shipment time and service. They have a return policy that looks like you can return the faucet for a restocking fee if you can't use it once you have it. The original shipping is free for any order over $75 so return shipment and restocking fee is still cheaper than getting it locally.
