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.
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.
Wall mounted. The other popular kind of kitchen faucets are the wall mounted ones. However, the prerequisite of such faucets is that they have plumbing functionality inside the wall area where the faucet is to be installed. With varied finishes and styles to complement your kitchen's unique décor, you can select one with ease. Pot filler. The other varieties of faucets are the pot filler ones. These complement standard fixtures in the kitchen and dispense cold water. Such kitchen faucets are perfect for refilling empty pots.
