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.
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.
Just like the most modern kitchen faucets, disc faucets have a single handle that controls temperature and water flow. These faucets function through the use of two discs within the valve that open and close in order to control the flow of hot and cold water. To control the water temperature you should do so using the side-to-side rotation of the handle. The cool thing with disc faucets is that they are of high quality and very reliable. Since they don't have many parts they don't leak a lot.
