Dishwasher Airgap and Water Filter Faucet Combo

I would like to install an under-sink water filter with a faucet on the counter. However, rather than drilling a yet another hole in a granite countertop, I was looking for alternatives, and I think I came pretty close. I found a faucet/airgap combo, which seems to retain all the functionality of an airgap, while also giving me the faucet I want. A picture of it is attached.

The issue is, the site where I found it ( Combination Watergap and Filter Faucet - WaterClick.com ) at lists it at $999. I strongly suspect this is a bug, and the site is down (because every single product they list there is listed at $999).

I have two questions:
- Can you help me find and obtain this product, by providing me with pointers to where it may be found. A link, keywords to search for etc are very helpful.

- From the look of it, it seems it keeps the air-gap intact, and therefore is code compliant. Do you think otherwise. I mean is there any reason to suspect that it may not be code-compliant.

Thank you in advance.

Just do a search for "filtered water faucet with air gap" and you'll find many faucets to choose from.

Thanks Pilot Dane.

When I do this search, what I get is air-gap faucets for reverse osmosis (RO) filters. What I am looking for is to use the dishwasher airgap for an "diswasher airgap and filtered water faucet", to install non-RO water filter. Please let me know if I am mistaken.

Hopefully someone more knowledgeable about the plumbing codes will chime in. I'm not sure if they can share an air gap or if they need to have separate ones. I would assume separate since the dishwasher probably needs much larger connections which would make the faucet a pretty specialized and big monster. If you do need to have separate air gaps I would go for the extra hole in the granite.

RESOLVED -- Found the faucet and other solutions as well

Thank you for your help. The posts here helped me look in the right places.

I did find a location selling the airgap faucet I was looking for, for a saner price: Water, Inc (WATERGAP CH) Air Gap with Faucet

Also, while researching I actually found another way. Our current kitchen faucet is a pull down faucet that has its handle on a separate hole than the main faucet body (similar to Delta Leland Single-Handle Pull-Down Sprayer Kitchen Faucet in Chrome featuring MagnaTite Docking-978-DST at The Home Depot) thereby, using a total of two holes. I was suggested that I get another faucet with the handle attached to the main faucet body (similar to Delta Leland Single-Handle Pull-Down Sprayer Kitchen Faucet in Arctic Stainless Featuring MagnaTite Docking-9178-AR-DST at The Home Depot), thereby using a single hole, and freeing the other for use by our filtered water faucet.

While the latter solution is perhaps more expensive, it does free my mind whether I am doing the right thing with respect to the code compliance.

Thanks again for all the help. I hope these solutions help someone else who may be facing the same problems.
