Our garburator started leaking water from its housing. This is on top of another water leak from our laundry washer several weeks prior. It seems like these appliances are talking to each other! But my misery was not over yet -- the new garburator was quite large that I had to completely redo all the plumbing!
While we were at this, we thought of doing a kitchen makeover. Might as well! So, out it went with the old faucet and in with a new Touch-control pull-down faucet. No fooling around with handles anymore! All you have to do is just touch it, or elbow it, or however you want to touch it - to turn it on or off. Several years ago, I just could not justify buying this kind of faucet at all, let alone a very expensive one! A pricey $400! This time after my wife wanted to go all the way, I reluctantly picked it up. And what do you know? Next time I knew I was already paying for it. As it turned out, I kinda like it!
NOTE: This new garburator is very, very quiet; you can hardly tell when it is grinding.
