Default WTB -TOUGH kitchen faucet

My kitchen faucet is worn out. I will need to replace it soon.
Does anyone have brand or style recommendations.
I will need one that will stand up to homebrew hobby abuse.

I have a homemade faucet system in my brew room. It is a Y-shaped mixer hose that is normally used to combine hot and cold water. Has garden hose fittings and connected to a regular outdoor style faucet. All this is fastened to a backboard above my sink on the edfge of a 2" x 8" block/shelf. Every time I use it with a jet washer to rinse a glass carboy, I think how fast this job would ruin the kitchen faucet.

This may be a Rube Goldberg idea. A remote faucet/spigot which would take the pressures/abuse of brewing use. Flexible hose from whatever faucet you buy to a spigot mounted/clamped to something heavy. This could be placed on the edge of the sink basin or in the basin.

I updated my faucet, I published the result here:

Garage Sink Faucet - Rube Goldberg edition

When I am not using the keg washer, I use a bottle washer. Cleans a glass in just a couple of seconds.

Hands down, this is one of the biggest time savers in my brewery.

It will look awesome in your kitchen too!!!

Below is one of the pictures, more can be found on the link above:
