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.
But when there are small children, the touch function comes in particularly handy. It is easier for them to get the water they need without asking adults for help. They don't need to reach the handle and operate it. All they need to do is to tap somewhere on the faucet. It is not likely either that they would leave the water running. It has been found that children often find it fun to tap on the faucet to turn the water off.
Fear 5. Electricity that powers the touch sensitivity in faucets is potentially dangerous. It is quite obvious that the touch feature is powered by electricity. Sometimes people ask whether the faucets need to be connected to the mains. They think it might be dangerous. Others mistrust the very idea of electricity and water being together in a faucet. In fact, the touch sensitive faucets are powered by a set of four or six 1.5 V batteries. The voltage reached by such a pack does not exceed 9 volts, which is considered safe voltage even by the strictest regulations.
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.
