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.
A good method would be finding the available user feedback, reading reviews and technical documentation. You can also ask a plumber. Even if they may not be able to comment on a particular model, they still can give you a lot of useful information about the brand. They may have worked with similar faucets, so they certainly know a lot more than me and you. 7. It's too risky to order faucets online. In an offline store, you can touch the faucet and feel what it is made of. When ordering online, it is not possible. It may feel a little like buying a pig in a poke. But it does not have to.A good online store supplies plenty of information about the products they offer. You can find there detailed descriptions from manufacturers, user comments and ratings. You can learn practically all there is to learn about the functionality, dimensions, advantages and drawbacks of a faucet. In short, you can get all the information needed for a qualified decision.
There may be a number of well-grounded reasons for not having touch sensitive faucets in your kitchen. The most widespread one is by far the price that is much higher for touch faucets than for their non-sensitive versions. Some other reasons might be affection for traditional ways, firm determination not to spoil yourself and your family with too effortless ways or plain reluctance to mess with batteries when they need to be changed.
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.
