Kitchen faucets are one of the most important components of your kitchen area. In the past, these were just ordinary parts of the kitchen. But nowadays, these have become more stylish, while retaining their classic functionality at the same time. Many types of kitchen faucets now have some kind of spray or brush attachment to make washing pans and dishes easier. Aside from this, there are now different designs for kitchen faucets so you can include stylish faucets for your next home decorating project.
They have been around for a very long time. They are known as compression faucets as they work through compression of a washer against a valve seat which is usually at the base of the faucet. The cool thing with them is that they have separate knobs for hot and cold water. While they are great to have, they tend to develop leaks every now and then.
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.
