To get the best kitchen faucets, you need to be very keen so that you can get something that will work for you. The first thing you need to do when you are out shopping for them is that you get one that will last for a long time. These are usually made form very strong material that ensures you use them for a long time without having to replace them. This will help you save on costs as once you buy the kitchen faucets you will be able to sit back and relax and not worry about repairs or replacements.
There are two main types of cartridge faucets: one and two handle faucets. A single handle faucet operates in an up/down motion to adjust water volume and left/right motion to adjust the temperature. From outside, a double handle cartridge faucet is identical to a compression washer faucet. You can tell the difference by noting how the handle feels when used. A compression faucet requires you to tighten down the washer in order to close water flow while a cartridge faucet requires smooth and consistent action to close water flow. When you move the faucet for just ½ turn you are able to move the handle from on to off position.
You identify the faucets by their single handle that moves over a rounded metal ball that easily shifts and spins thus creating different water flows and temperatures. The ball has chambers and spring loaded rubber seals. The handle rotates easily allowing you an exact mix of hot and cold water. It's good to note that these faucets don't have washers. Due to the many parts in these faucets, they tend to leak more than other washerless faucets such as disc and cartridge.
