Many people prefer this to the traditional Drip Tank. The Faucet’s main advantage is that it accommodates a larger supply of water (a gallon or two). To use the Faucet Kit, you should have a permanent place for your machine, since it will work with a larger water container. If you sometimes move your machine to other locations, that’s OK–at such times just leave the faucet where it is, and use the Drip Tank that came with the machine.
The Faucet Kit is set into a fitting in the Baseplate (the same fitting that accepts the Drip Tank post). The bushing is located at the Faucet’s base. The Spout is flexible and can direct the water to any position on the lap. In its most typical setup, the Faucet draws water from a container set above the level of the Baseplate, or, it can be plumbed to a water line
