Dear American Standard,
You are paying your engineers too much. If you are paying them anything, it’s too much. Clearly they thought the placement of the faucet on this sink was functional. It’s not.
Fire your engineers and get good ones. Ones that actually look at their work and notice the bad design.
Yes. This was my sink at our old house. No. There was no other way to install the faucet. This is the faucet that came with the sink, in the box. No, there was no way to know that it was this way until it was installed. Yay. At least there was a small sink to rinse dishes in.
