Looking for wall mounted kitchen faucet...

*WALL* mounted kitchen faucet with centers that will go out to 9-1/2". I've found millions that go out as far as 8.5", but nothing wider. Do not want to tear out wall and tile to move piping. Any suggestions?

A standard dimension is 8in max. I don't know if this a new install or a replacement; if new someone fucxed up with the rough-in, the only solution is to use what the other post said or tear the wall down, sorry.

Styles of such, are very limited. I have a Waltec 8" centers..and the swivel spout always drips. Plumbers tape helps..but still drips after a while. Poo!

Yeah that's a bit too high. We're willing to go up to $200. And ideally chrome. How do you find that? I searched for every conceivable term "kitchen wall faucet 9 centers" "kitchen wall faucet 9 swing", etc without any luck.

The unit we're talking about is probably 60 years old. If it was roughed in wrong, I don't think I'll find the culprit now!

I googled "wall faucet 9" center". I would opt for redoing the valve down to a nominal 8" size, since they are more readily available and cheaper, too. A little wall work, but IMO you will be better satisfied. Good luck with your search!
