When it comes to leaving the water running, just imagine how much easier it is for the children to turn the water off with just a touch than operating the handle to the off position. It is also a good deal of fun to turn the faucet off by touching it. So it's no wonder that the touch sensitive faucets are left running much less frequently. Fear 4. Pets can activate a touch sensitive faucet. If a cat touches your touch sensitive faucet, it will, most likely, be too long a contact for the faucet to turn on. A canary landing on the faucet won't activate it either. Well, how likely is a situation when your kitten would be sitting there and touching the faucet with its paw?
Some use strong magnets that do a good job to hold the wand in the dock. Others use a smart combination of weights, extremely precise docks and flexible hoses. Whatever the method used in the faucet to keep the spray wand in its place, it might be wise to consult the users' feedback to see if there are problems with loose fit. Apart of that, you may want to know how long a distance the wand retracts from. On some faucets, the wand will come back to the dock from any point where you release it. Others will need to be brought close to the dock to activate the forces that pull it in.
One-Piece Faucets, Some sinks only have a single hole. If this is the case, the faucet you will need is a single handle faucet. This type only requires one hole for the spout and handle. (If you want to add a sprayer this will require an extra hole.) Faucet with Three Pieces, If your sink is one of the older types with three holes your faucet is probably a two handle. With one hole for the hot water, one for the cold and one for the spout there may be an extra one if a sprayer is present. Kitchen sinks of some types have combined soap dischargers and sprayers which shows how important it is to make sure of the number of holes.
It is wise, however, not to rely on just any touch sensitive faucet out there. There are cheap faucets without even name or brand that offer you a bunch of advanced features. If you buy one of them, it's a gamble. In my opinion, the safest way to go is finding a brand whose touch sensitive faucets have proved to be reliable. The information available online can help a lot. User ratings, comments and reviews can give you a better idea about the quality.
