One of the first things to know before shopping for a faucet is your hole configuration. Most sinks come with holes drilled to receive the faucet and sometimes accessories such as a sprayer, soap dispenser, hot beverage or filtered water faucet. One hole sinks are for single-control faucets, three hole are for single-control faucets with a sprayer and/or accessories and four holes are for single-control or two-handle sinks with various accessories. If you have an under-mount or apron front sink the holes are drilled into the countertop behind the sink.
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?
Fear 2. Touch sensitive faucets will be turning on and off when you clean them. You may wonder what to do with a touch sensitive faucet when you want to clean it or just push its spout out of the way. What if the faucet keeps turning on and off all the time? A good faucet will distinguish a "touch" from a "grip" or "push". A "touch" from the point of view of the faucet is a short contact. You need to remove your hand in a fraction of a second for the faucet to react. If the hand stays longer, the faucet identifies it as a "grip" and does nothing.
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.
