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.
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.
Kitchen faucets are an important part of your kitchen so it is a good idea to search and find one that fits into your specific design. It used to be that faucets were simple items that were in your kitchen only for function. But now this is not the case because there are so many companies that create great stylish faucets that can enhance the look of your kitchen. You can choose anything from simple to basic fixtures all the way up to expensive stylish faucets that can transcend your kitchen. Make sure that you search around to find the look that you want at this price possible.
