I have to buy this one, because I have hole in my granite counter top, but not enough space for soap dispenser under the counter. It is easy to install, but it has a very little space for actual liquid, you need to refill very often, sometimes more than once a week, it is frustrating. Other than this it looks fine and operates well.
THis is the best alternative to hiding your air gap assembly...>EVER!!!! The only alternative was to have a plumber re-work my plumbing under the sink/in the wall and pay them $200+ to do so. Instead I bought this! The dispenser DOES come with air gap assembly-even though they are standard size and you are able to use your existing one if you have one. It fits snuggly over the top of the assembly and stays in place very nicely. Sure the actual soap vessel does not hold much, but I put my dish soap in it; therefore I don't have to fill it up as often as hand soap. I'd even be tempted to leave it empty (that's how good it looks in replace of my ugly air gap). I also asked my plumber about the concern I had with another reviewers experience with water pouring out of this air gap. I was told that water will only come out of the air gap if the drain is clogged. Which is the purpose of the air gap to begin with (prevent backup from going into the dishwasher). As a plumber he had never seen anything like this and took a picture of it to show his boss! Thought he could save a lot of his customers $$ buy using this instead of reworking plumbing!!! So happy I bought it!!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Excellent color
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Great
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Online description is a little confusing. I was not sure if it came with the air gap assembly and if it would fit snuggly over it or not. But it does!
I thought this was exactly what I was looking for, when searching for a brushed nickle soap dispenser for my kitchen sink. I didn't want anything underneath the sink and this option popped up as a "air-gap replacement soap dispenser." What a great idea. When I received my chrome cap, over my existing air-gap valve, I tried to install this product, but the air-gap valve has a plastic vent cover which allows air in, but minimizes water coming out. I had to remove this screw-on vent cover to install the soap dispenser. It fit great! However, first time I used the dishwasher, I had water pouring out the air vents. I stopped the dishwasher and removed the dispenser. Then I made the mistake of starting the dishwaher again, which resulted in a 3 foot tall fountain, spraying my window blinds and covering my counter, then spilling onto my freshly installed wood floor. I have been unable to alter the product to fit over the plastic vent cap, so I have the dispenser just sitting loose on top of the sink for now.
This product is very nice, but not exactly what I expected. Make sure that if you're ordering this as a sink-mounted dispenser, to either order the one with the suction cup attached, or to order the one with the kit to attach it to the sink. When ordering it, I didn't read carefully enough, so I didn't realize that it didn't come with any attachments. :P
