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.
Once you have the faucet out, replace all rubber washers and o-rings. When replacing washers, check the condition of the metal valve seats inside the faucet body. If the valve seats feel rough, they should be replaced or resurfaced.
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.
