Touch FaucetsTouch faucets are fantastic and are quickly growing in popularity. These hands-free kitchen faucets turn on and off with just a light touch of a hand or arm. These faucets are becoming a favorite in "aging in place" kitchens or with the disabled. These are wonderful additions to any food prep sink because they are so easy to turn on with dough or flour covered hands. They are also useful for a potting bench sink.
One-Piece Faucets, Some sinks only have a single hole. If this is the case, the faucet you will need is a single handle faucet. This type only requires one hole for the spout and handle. (If you want to add a sprayer this will require an extra hole.) Faucet with Three Pieces, If your sink is one of the older types with three holes your faucet is probably a two handle. With one hole for the hot water, one for the cold and one for the spout there may be an extra one if a sprayer is present. Kitchen sinks of some types have combined soap dischargers and sprayers which shows how important it is to make sure of the number of holes.
Fear 1. A touch sensitive kitchen faucet will be turning on by itself. A good touch sensitive kitchen faucet will never turn on by itself. They can be used on any type of sinks including metal ones. In the dawn of touch sensitivity in faucets, they had a number of problems including turning on too often by accident. In modern faucets, these problems are eliminated.
Situations of this kind are extremely unlikely to happen. But even if they do once in a while, a good faucet has a built-in system that turns the water off automatically after a certain period of inactivity. It is usually configured somewhere between 3 and 5 minutes. So even if the faucet gets turned on by some unusual circumstance, the loss from that will be rather insignificant.
