Hooking up the supply lines from an Ikea faucet can be sort of weird as they aren't usually standard sizes (they are on the metric system...like the rest of the world). They are also extremely short and wouldn't reach the valves under the sink. After reading many-a-web site I realized that this particular faucet (can't remember the name...sounded like when you gargle) is a standard 1/2" so all I needed was a quick trip to the hardware store to buy these handy couplings that cost way too much and connect the two lines together in the middle. Will it leak? I'd guess yes, at some point in the future when I'd rather it not.
Did Ikea fold to the American market and start making standardized supply lines for their faucets? I'd say yes, they did. U.S.A.! U.S.A!
