Anyone else buy the Speakman, Neo Single Lever Faucet and need the $82 deck plate?
I wrote Speakman customer service to inquire about a workable deck plate to cover existing hot/cold holes in the counter tops. This is what I got back: "I forwarded your request to our Engineering Department and they did find a deck plate that will work with your faucets and cover the holes. These deck plates are used with our electronic faucets but will adapt to your SB-1003. The part number is RPG66-0106-PC which includes the deck plate, gasket and mounting hardware. Since we are not set up to take orders for parts you can look on line to find a local branch of Ferguson Enterprises. They are the national distributors for Speakman parts. The website is www.ferguson.com. They can order the deck plates for you."
The part needed is $82. I need three. These deck plates cost nearly as much as the faucet. I have a mess on my hands since the faucet did not come with the deck plate. I wonder if anyone else made the same stupid mistake I made in assuming the deck plate was supplied.
