We recently had our kitchen remodeled and after the installation, I noticed that the power for the garbage disposal was placed right below the faucet. This prevents the faucet hose from smoothly moving when using the detachable faucet head (I have a Delta Ashton, #19922Z-SSSD-DST). When I pull out the faucet head, I have to push the hose back into faucet, which is a mild pain. Before attempting to move the outlet, any suggestions on how I might get the hose to move more smoothly around it?
You could probably shorten the sleeve through which the hose feeds so there's more clearance above the box. This alone would probably resolve the problem. The extra length doesn't appear to be necessary in this case. It's mostly to accommodate thicker mounting situations. Be sure to ease (bevel or smooth) the edge of the cut so it doesn't abrade the hose.
You could also try bending that sleeve, but brass tends to tear before it bends.
