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.
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.
Question #1: Is the faucet you are replacing a Pegasus or is this a spot that has never had a faucet and requires the installation of a new one? This is a necessary question because if one already existed here the required plumbing will be in place. In this instance, you will most likely decide to choose another Pegasus which has the same line up as the faucet you took out. So check and see what the total number of holes are in the sink.
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.
