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.
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.
The kitchen is the place in your house that will reward you most for the attention and care you give it. Kitchen remodeling is a cost efficient investment that will soon show the return in terms of saved time, freed space and an aesthetically pleasing environment. The faucet is certainly the item that has the greatest impact on the way we work in the kitchen. Kitchen life revolves around the faucet and the sink. Wisely chosen and installed in the right place, the faucet - sink "team" will help a lot to streamline all the preparation and cleaning works. They will also have a huge impact on the overall look of the kitchen.
