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.
Question #4: When choosing from all the Pegasus faucets available which one suits the way you want your kitchen to look and fits with your decor? Since they are available in such as wide variety it sometimes makes this a difficult decision. Many opt for the simple faucet when choosing the one they are going to install.

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.
