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.
Finish and Material. Kitchen faucets were made in chrome finishes for years. Today, however, different other finishing materials are used for the same. This includes bronze, nickel and stainless steel finishes for unique and impressive appearances. When choosing the finish, consider the durability. For instance PVD finishes are resistant to corrosion and scratching and offer surfaces that clean as good as new for many years. The inner construction is usually of brass metal. There are tubular and cast brass options with the cast being thicker and stronger, but both are equally good. The valves and how they are coated can determine their functionality, especially when handling hot and cold controls. Therefore, water temperature is also an important factor when you go shopping.
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.
