I'm feeling lazy so I figure I"ll leaving the driving to you guys.

Can you find me a few sources for foot operated water taps like the kind they use in hospitals' scrub stations where you just press a pedal to get the water flowing?

Bonus points for a unit which has 3 pedals: hot, cold and warm.

An outfit like Graingers would be my first stop, but you guys are better than this than I.

Thanks,

Jim

LOL, it never occured to me you could step on BOTH pedals to get warm water!

I'll check the links out later and get back to you. I didn't know they'd become mainstream (FoodNetwork? Why yes, the kitchen IS where I want them!)

Without checking the links, my only concern is that they are household items. and not super heavy-duty. I'll be taking these abroad and won't be able to secure replacements parts.

Thanks,

Jim

Hi,

If you'll be installing them abroad, check that the inlet size and threading is compatible with plumbing in that country.  I like to assume that everything in now DIN / ISO standard, but maybe not.

Thanks Bobbie, those will do nicely.

Myoarin, fortunately India still measure pipes in inches, so I don't think I'll have a problem there.
