You could use a real hand pump (pitcher pump) together with a hot/cold mixing valve mounted next to it. The only drawback is there will always be a quart of water sitting in the hand pump.

Lowes used to carry one. I think PricePhister makes it. It was in the $200 range if I remember.

I have one a real one on my tub.
The kids just love the way the water comes out of it.
I simply bolted it to a corner of the tub and routed the pipe from the shower knob faucet to it.
Harbor freight had one for 28 bucks Menards had one for 46 bucks I bought both and used the Menards.

That sounds kind of cool fantasymaker. Do you have any pictures of it?

I read the reviews on that faucet and they are not favorable overall.

Does your local city have a used plumbing/fixture place? We have one called Rehouse that has all kinds of salvaged stuff, but it's hit or miss what you find.

This is what I was suggesting. A single lever mixing valve is mounted to the countertop next to a real pitcher pump. The hot and cold water lines are connected to the mixing valve and the outlet of the valve is piped to the pitcher pump. I suppose this is similar to the set up that fantasymaker has.
