The cleverly engineered touch sensitivity system distinguishes between "touch" and "grip". When you tap it, your hand needs to be removed from the faucet within a fraction of a second. If the hand stays on the faucet, it is identified as a "grip", and the faucet does not respond. So it is practically impossible for pets to activate it.
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.
For pull-down models, the hose needs to be guided through the faucet body and spout, for touch sensitive models, there will be a battery pack that needs to be connected to the contacts.
Second - Disassemble the Faucet: The same basic principals apply to all faucet types when starting to take a faucet apart for repair or replacement. Keep all parts and layout in the order you take them apart. This will help you both put the faucet back together and identify the parts to be replaced. See below for specific variations in faucet dis-assembly.
