That is where I was yesterday with this item. Then it occurred to me that I have a blog now, and it is getting traffic! Maybe I could use the blog as a forum, someone out there must know what this thing is. At that point, wanting to be correct in my internet civilities, I asked for permission to post the photos that were sent to me. Permission was granted and so here they are.
I will paste the brief conversation that has transpired to this point.
I recently purchased a unique faucet and have spent hours trying to figure out what exactly it is. I was hoping you could help. It is large nickel plated (I think) with two valves, but only one supply line.
OK I'm intrigued but I am going to need some photos. Brian, <plumbing-geek.com>
Thanks for looking at these.
That is really quite large. I would guess that the handle that alines with the shank controls flow rate while the handle on top merely is an on/off control.
I would not assume that this valve was intended for domestic water, it could be some kind of a beverage tap. The rubber spout suggests a bottle filler.Perhaps I should put your photos on a blog page and invite comments.
Go ahead and share the pics. The spout is not rubber. It is a plastic like material that threads on to the tap.
The photo with the measure was not the lead photo, when I got to it and realized how large this tap is it helped me see that the seeming narrow shank is probably at least 3/8ths IPS.
How it works, and what it is used for?
