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.
Single handle faucets still make up more than 80% of faucet sales and are popular with builders. These faucets are basic and have a single handle that controls temperature and flow. These are available with a side spray which is much less expensive than the pull-out spray faucets. They also allow you to have a spray with a vintage-look faucet.
The decision may be tough at times. But it does not have to be like buying a pig in a poke. With a little research, you can find a lot of useful feedback from existing users about how the touch sensitivity works in different kitchen faucets. Some faucets have tens, if not hundreds, of reviews on the largest online vendor websites like Amazon. The number of reviews and the ratings given can be a good indication of the quality of the faucet. You can see if there are a lot of people having issues with the touch sensitivity in a particular faucet.
A small drip from a leaky faucet might seem like a little annoyance, yet it actually can cost you hundreds of dollars a year in water down the drain and next to nothing to fix. A leaky faucet is one of the most common home plumbing problems. Faucets are relatively easy to fix-once you know how they work and what to do to fix them.
