Stream pattern for this faucet
My wife and I love the look of this channel spout and have ordered these through our builder for our new home. However, we started to second guess having these in the kids bathroom. I cannot find a video or photo of these sinks in action online anywhere. Our concern is, due to the open channel design, if the water is turned on full will the water have tendency to shoot straight across, missing the sink and making a mess? We are wondering if we wouldn't be safer to go with a closed channel Ara faucet for the kids sinks. We still have time to make the adjustments in our order. Please let us know what you think. A video would be even better! Thanks!
Hi Ken1, Thank you for your question. Another option available for the model 568LF-SSMPU if splashing is an issue is to install a flow restrictor that will lower the faucet flow rate to 1.0 or 0.5 gpm.

Is it normal for water to always be sitting in the trough when faucet is not in use?
Doing a bathroom remodel and just had this faucet put in.
After the water is turned off, the front 2/3 of the trough has
water remaining in it - which would mean there would always be water setting in the trough. Is this the way it is supposed to be or is the trough supposed to be slanted slightly downwards so that the water completely drains from it? Will water constantly sitting in the trough negatively affect the stainless steel over time? (I have used other trough faucets and never noticed water remaining in the trough.) Please let me know right away as l only have my contractor for 2 more days. Thanks!
Hi, Andy! Thank you for your question.
Water remaining in the spout trough is normal. Dry off with a dry towel as needed. For cleaning, use a 50% white vinegar and 50% water solution and clean off any build up as needed, if any.
