The Delta Leland 9178-SS-DST has a single pull down faucet handle for the kitchen. It is a high faucet head that allows you to get things under it for easy filling. It also has a nice feature of being able to swivel 360 degrees. Equipped with a 20 inch spray hose that lets you wash large kitchen pots with ease. You can have a spray mode or a stream by pushing a button. You can control the water temperature and its flow with a leaver. Most customers found this kitchen faucet to be of good quality.
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.
It is good to know how the handle works. There are faucets with advanced handle technology that allows you to adjust the temperature and pressure with just a fingertip. On others it may take a little time to get used to the way the handle moves. Some people can find it somewhat difficult to move the handle into the exact off position at first. But very few of them consider that being a problem. Another huge time saver is the touch sensitivity in kitchen faucets. You can preset your favorite temperature and pressure with the handle and have it always ready. The water flow turns on when you touch the faucet with your hand or forearm. Another touch will turn the water off. There is no need to worry that your pet can turn the water on. It is highly unlikely since a touch operable faucet from nearly any brand distinguishes a "touch" from a "grip". It means that, in order to activate the faucet, you need to touch it with your finger and remove it in a fraction of a second. The faucet does not get activated when you are pushing it out of the way, for example.
