Thanks guys, good to be back. Of course, I am moving in a few weeks and will probably disappear for a bit, but you can never really stop a slow drip.

Ok so apparently Torbeck is a company. Never heard of them, it is probably a Uk thing (Where is CHRISM when you need him?).

That is almost double the standard efficiency of a higher end electric heater, and around four times a standard gas.

I don't know what the hell a Menards is, but I suggest never getting plumbing advice from them again. Caduceus is correct, this appears to be an older style delta.

...what?

Replacing a kitchen faucet is one of the most basic do-it-yourself plumbing tasks there is. Unscrew the supply lines, unscrew the faucet, reverse steps with new faucet. Done.

Certainly looks like a repcal. A plumbing shop should be able to order it for you, or they are available from a few places online.
