Pullout and Pull-Down FaucetsPullout faucets have a spray head that pulls out towards you, whereas a pull-down faucet has a spray head that pulls down toward the bottom of the sink. Both options help you clean the sink and wash produce or water plants. The pull-outs are the fastest growing in popularity of any faucet in the industry with good reason, they are the perfect combination of style and function. A button or toggle control makes it easy to go from aerated stream to spray. Look for one that swivels 360 degrees for easy access to all areas of your sink.
2. You need a plumber to install a kitchen faucet. If you have never held a wrench in your hand, you probably do need a plumber to help you with the installation. But if you know how to connect an end of a pipe to the supply, you can do all the things on your own. Every faucet that is worth your attention will come with detailed instructions. But the process is highly intuitive, too. Basically, the lower part of the faucet comes through the installation hole on your sink or counter-top, hot and cold water pipes connected and the faucet fastened with nuts from beneath.
Be aware though that even the best faucet won't work as expected if installed on a metal sink with insufficient insulation. In this case, the sink itself can become a "continuation" of the faucet, and it will turn on just by touching the sink. The problem will be gone when the faucet is installed with a proper insulation.
4. Touch sensitive faucets are uncontrollable. Uncontrolled operation is the main fear that makes people who would otherwise have chosen a touch sensitive faucet decide to have a non-sensitive one. It is easy to believe that such faucets are not suitable for families with young children or pets that stay in the kitchen. For modern faucets, the truth is quite opposite though. The touch function is reliable and under normal conditions always works as expected. These faucets cannot be activated by pets, and they are helpful for families with children. The cleverly engineered touch sensitivity system distinguishes between "touch" and "grip". When you tap it, your hand needs to be removed from the faucet within a fraction of a second. If the hand stays on the faucet, it is identified as a "grip", and the faucet does not respond. So it is practically impossible for pets to activate it.
