    What dumb thing am I missing? I got a new single hole faucet as that is what was there and also what I wanted but it only has one hose on it whereas the other one has two hoses, one going to hot and one going to cold. How can I have only one hose? thanks!

    Wow, that's interesting. It appears that this model requires a mixing valve under the cabinet to supply a constant source of tempered water. I assume the Faucet handle operates on/off only and no temp adjustment. One - 1/2 thread mixing valve, 30-50$
    Two- 12". 3/8x1/2 braided supplies
    One- 12" 1/2x1/2 braided supply
    Can connect 3/8 ends to existing valves in most cases...then connect 1/2 ends to hot and cold side of mixing valve inlet. Use the 1/2x1/2 braided supply from outlet of mixing valve to your Faucet,, unless of course the other end of your existing supply line is 1/2 then you will not need that one.
    Or get a different style Faucet....

    Thank so much Woodsy! I have never known of a mixing valve but so nice to know something might solve the problem.
