Pole handleEclipse Stainless faucets with pole type handles including the KP2030 Atlantic, the KPS3033 Sebastopol, the KPS3032 Pacifica and KPS3031 Niagara have a different procedure for changing the cartridge than the other Eclipse faucets. The F7A Tara is similar but the cartridge is different in that it is a cold water only faucet.

Here is a flyer showing the process for these faucets:

What is a Faucet Backflow Preventer/Check Valve?

What is a back flow preventer? What is the difference between a back flow preventer and a check valve? Do I need on on my faucet?

The terms backflow preventer and check valve are often used interchangeably. The purpose of the valves is to prevent water on a plumbing appliance, faucets, water heater, garden hose from backing up into the water system and contaminating it. The best example is if you are using an attachment to your garden hose to spray insecticide on your lawn or garden and you lose pressure on the line. Without a backflow preventer the poison could potentially back up into the water system and pollute the system.

Do you need one? If the question is will the faucet work without one the answer is yes. Most plumbers will tell you they are required by code but there seems to be some difference of opinion on the subject. It also seems it is rarely enforced if it is required.

Most faucets today come with two check valves. In the Eclipse faucet one is in the head and one is attached between the hose and the body of the faucet – see pictures below.

Eclipse Sinks and How They’re Made

In a previous article we discussed the difference between the Eclipse process of individually drawing (pressing) the bowls of double bowl sinks and then welding then together.  This is the best way to produce a quality sink. Most sink companies to save cost are pressing two bowls at the same time using an annealing process. This process while cheaper produces a lighter and therefore noisier sink.

Here is a short video of a portion recent presentation we did on sinks and faucets where we discussed the topic.

ANO is an independent representative specializing in stainless steel sinks and quality faucets not sold on internet.
