I'm replacing a faucet on a pedestal sink. The supply hoses are the old plastic rather than the modern braided ones and I would much prefer to upgrade the old (21 years) hoses. Unfortunately, I'm having zero luck finding hoses that short. As it's a pedestal sink I don't see how to use a longer one without it sticking out and being ugly.

Any solutions?

    A picture would help, but I have found that using overly long hoses that then loop back up to the fixtures allows you to tuck/hide the excess behind (or in) the pedestal. – Jimmy Fix-it Mar 16 '18 at 0:51
  • @JimmyFix-it I was thinking that might be the only answer but keeping them out of sight is problematic. The pedestal is only 6" wide, inside is mostly the drain pipe. Maybe if I got long ones and zip-tied them to keep them narrow enough... – Loren Pechtel Mar 16 '18 at 1:12

    Yup, get real long ones and let them droop down next to the drain pipe, then tape or zip-tie them in place! – Jimmy Fix-it Mar 16 '18 at 1:16
  • @JimmyFix-it Worked. Make it an answer if you want it accepted. I didn't even need the zip-ties, I was able to tuck them against the valves, they're out of sight. – Loren Pechtel Mar 16 '18 at 3:37
  • Awesome, I'm glad it worked. – Jimmy Fix-it Mar 16 '18 at 16:35

Ace Hardware has 6" supply lines on tap. The bad pun is free.

  • Unfortunately, I followed Jimmy Fix-it's solution before finding that. For some reason it didn't come up in a Google search. – Loren Pechtel Mar 16 '18 at 3:36
  • @LorenPechtel you should mark the check mark ✅ next to Jimmy Fit-it answer if that’s was your solution. 👍 – Tyson Mar 16 '18 at 20:32
  • @Tyson I hadn't accepted his answer yet because I hadn't been on since he posted it. – Loren Pechtel Mar 17 '18 at 2:14
