Finally got the new faucet installed. The old one was a 1990's vintage and was leaking. Not only that but it was apparently installed by a monkey with rudimentary plumbing skill. No less than 3 different sizes of hose running from the water pump to the faucet. And all of them were the wrong sizes. Monkey just forced too small of hose onto too big of a connector. Had to cut it all away. Instead of finding a connector for the old sink, they just cut the ends off and then put too small of a hose the copper fitting and used three hose clamps. Grrr.
I will eventually gut the whole water system this winter but for now I resized everything and it works with no leaks.
