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. The electricity, however weak, never comes in contact with water. In a typical touch sensitive faucet, water runs inside pipes made from non-conductive materials. So there is no threat whatsoever that could be attributed to the use of electricity in touch sensitive faucets.
One of the first things to know before shopping for a faucet is your hole configuration. Most sinks come with holes drilled to receive the faucet and sometimes accessories such as a sprayer, soap dispenser, hot beverage or filtered water faucet. One hole sinks are for single-control faucets, three hole are for single-control faucets with a sprayer and/or accessories and four holes are for single-control or two-handle sinks with various accessories. If you have an under-mount or apron front sink the holes are drilled into the countertop behind the sink.
Some use strong magnets that do a good job to hold the wand in the dock. Others use a smart combination of weights, extremely precise docks and flexible hoses. Whatever the method used in the faucet to keep the spray wand in its place, it might be wise to consult the users′ feedback to see if there are problems with loose fit.
