First and foremost, it is the ease of access to water that touch faucets secure for the children who are just learning how to use a faucet. When they need water, they do not have to reach the handle and operate it. They only need to reach any part of the faucet and touch it to get the water running. This relieves parents and adds fun for the children whilst helping them learn more quickly.
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.
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.
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.
