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.
Kitchen faucets ease kitchen chores and are therefore of great importance. The truth however is that there are lots of different types of kitchen faucets on the market today. As such, you need to be clear about what you want to make it easier for you to make the right decision when it comes to the purchase and installation of a kitchen faucet. This means taking several factors into consideration. These considerations will not only help you to get the best fitting but also the best at a rate that is affordable for you.
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.
