Have a rectangle tap head as shown in picture below, want to connect to a round hose for drinking water filter.

Any suggestions on how to do it without replacing the whole tap? Is there an adapter that can convert rectangle to round tap?

Better do it inside the cabinet . You don’t want spoil the look of the tap.

I kind of having a similar situation, sink is granite. If the connection done inside cabinet, meaning I have to drill a hole on the sink?
Any sample picture? tongue.gif

By the way, for me it's water dispenser (Coway), hence the drilling question

Same, just drill down into the bottom cabinet to get access to piping below,

no need to drill into the granite, what countertop material are you using?

Another problem is, the dispenser will be located at the other end of my counter top, quite far from sink.
Sink is on the right end, dispenser on the left end.
Sigh, I should have added another tap for dispenser earlier.

how does the water dispenser work? do you turn on tap to fill it up or it has some sort of auto fill function, or it's instant water out when you open the tap?

Auto fill function, and with current setup, i have to turn on the tap.
Example:

Notice the blue/orange hose, that's where the water coming in/out, and it is usually connected from kitchen sink tap, and that is the 'unclean' installation.

then you can use a dual split below the cabinet to have 1 line to your tap and the other with a simple on/off valve (like those used in panasonic water filter) to your water dispenser. the valve is useful when you want to do maintenance on the dispenser. you will have to turn off your water inlet 1st before modifying it.

IMO it's the outlet that will be troublesome if you want to link it directly to the drain. easy way is just route it back to the sink though it will look ugly.

Yup, that's what I thought too. But the Coway installer told me that the outlet can be connected to the sink outlet pipe.
Probably drill it and connect the Coway outlet, is that possible?

*Anyway my table top is quartz and not granite.
