1. A great kitchen faucet is expensive. In fact, you will be surprised to find how low the price is for which you can get a beautiful kitchen faucet with a lot of helpful features. The word of wisdom says, "He pays a lot who buys cheap", and to a certain degree that still applies. If you consider purchasing a faucet below $ 80, you might want to find an answer to a question, what makes it that cheap.
High-Arc FaucetsIf you wash a lot of large pots, fill vases often or have a big roomy sink a high arc faucet is probably for you. High-arc, also known as gooseneck or high neck faucets, give you more room to work. Today's high arc kitchen faucets often have beautiful flowing curves and tapered handles and could easily be the focal point of a kitchen. These faucets are best used in deep sinks, they will cause splashing if the sink is shallow. Most bar sink faucets are of the high arc type to allow as much room as possible for washing produce.
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.
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.
