Yes... it becomes a bit of "what can I put there"??.
As it turns out.... a bit of a weeping leak developed.... I put some paper towels under the counter to get an idea of how bad.
I removed the faucet.... re- installed the hoses using some tape on the threads.... and pet jelly on the o rings..... still the same weep. Seems to be internal to the faucet..
Living with it till the replacement shows up next week.
On a side note.... I did not realize how much taller you need to be using a vessel sink...!?
My wife.... at 5'2"..... is going to need some help underfoot too
