Families with young children find the touch function extremely useful. It makes the water easier available for the little ones since they just need to tap the spout rather than reach the handle and manipulate it into the desired position. They will seldom leave the water running. Children love to tap the water off just for fun. But even if they forget, the water will be turned off automatically after some time of inactivity. I am not speaking here of the quality and longevity. In today's faucets, they are self-evident. The rubber washer systems have been replaced with ceramic valve cartridges. These cartridges are durable, the seal is tight and the faucets have lifelong warranties for leak-free performance. This may not be true, however, for some low-end items without brand names.
The kitchen faucets that you get should stay in good condition and thus they should not change color. This will ensure that your kitchen will remain in good condition and they will not look misplaced. You should also get faucets that blend in well with your kitchen decor so that you can have a complete look in your home. The faucets should not drip so they can serve you without any problem. This will ensure that your kitchen remains dry and you can carry on with your daily activities without any disturbance.
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.
