If you buy a Grohe faucet (I can only speak to the one made in Germany) all of the plumbing is outside the wall. That is how their faucets are designed. When the plumber stubs it, the only thing behind the wall is the hot and cold water origin pipe just like with all faucets. However, I recently learned that a hot water pump diverter cannot be used on a wall mounted faucet. This is relevant only if you need a pump to deliver hot water from your hot water heater to a sink to heat the shower water faster.

Jeanette, how did your faucet turn out? I am mounting the exact same Virage faucets as dual faucets above a trough sink and I'm having a hard time deciding on a height. thanks!

Kathleen, It turned out beautifully. The contractor did say it was a lot of work to put it in. I learned two things that might help you. 1) this will make your mirror on the high side, which could be a problem if you are short or planning a big frame on your mirror. I ended up dropping the frame on my mirror to get more mirror down low. Also, despite someone on this thread saying the faucet should hit the middle of the sink, which I did, I would advise against that. My drain is not centered....it is at the back side of the square sink. Because I centered the faucet on the sink, I feel the sink is a tad too far back, especially on the higher 36" top. I am 5'4". I have gotten used to it, as I wasn't ready to refab my granite to move the sink. Love the look and so easy to clean! Good luck with yours
