Drain Options for Your Bridge Bathroom Faucet
Featured Image – SKU: KS2172RX
Bathroom Bridge Faucets are one of the most classic faucet styles. Their name comes from the visible physical connection “bridge” that joins the hot and cold supply lines to the faucet spout. In the last few decades, new colors and variations on this classic have entered the market and the bridge faucet is still one of the more popular sellers today. One notable aspect about bathroom bridge faucets that differs from other lavatory faucets is the drain options. Many standard lavatory faucets have a pop-up rod built into the faucet body. Some of the more modern styles are opting for an independent push-pop up drain option.
The “bridge” makes the integration of a built-in pop-up rod for bridges difficult. Many bridge lavatory faucets are sold with a matching drain. But if you are ever in need of a replacement, or want a change in design, there are a few alternatives that complement a bridge faucet very well.
1. External Pop Up Drain Included
Certain traditional lavatory bridge faucets include a popup rod separate from the main faucet. For example, the KS7971AX English Country Bridge Bathroom Faucet comes with an external pop-up drain assembly. You can see in the image below a cap under the bridge. These decorative tops are intended to match with the faucet’s color-finish and style.
2. Lift and Turn Sink Drains
There are bathroom sink drains that do not require a rod to open and close. These are great for bridge faucets that do not pair aesthetically with a popup rod drain such as the Kingston Brass KS2170RKX Webb Bridge Bathroom Faucet. Take the lift and turn sink drains like KB3002. Its simple mechanism with few moving parts makes it very reliable when creating a more traditional-looking bathroom.
3. Push Pop Up Drains
These independent drains are different than lift and turn sink drains because push pop-ups create a flusher surface when closed and require a spring mechanism to function. Kingston offers various styles of Push pop-up drains in many colors such as the EV8001 or the larger cap EV8008.
5. Sink Hole Covers
Sink hole covers are not a drain option but are another popular accessory with bridge faucets. Bridge faucets are most commonly built for 8” widespread hole- drillings. Many pre-drill sinks/counters include 3 drilled holes for 8” widespread faucets that utilize the middle hole. If your bridge faucet results in an exposed middle hole, Kingston offers color-matching sink hole covers.
