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.

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.
The Sprayer. You have to decide if you would like to have a pull out or a pull down sprayer. If you want to clean the larger pots and pans in the sink easily, you will need to get the pull out faucet as this kind of faucets allow high arc spouts. On the other hand, if you prefer a cleaner look for your faucet, then you should go for the pull down sprayer.
