In the dawn of touch sensitivity in faucets, they had a number of problems including turning on too often by accident. In modern faucets, these problems are eliminated. It is wise, however, not to rely on just any touch sensitive faucet out there. There are cheap faucets without even name or brand that offer you a bunch of advanced features. If you buy one of them, it′s a gamble. In my opinion, the safest way to go is finding a brand whose touch sensitive faucets have proved to be reliable. The information available online can help a lot. User ratings, comments and reviews can give you a better idea about the quality. Be aware though that even the best faucet won′t work as expected if installed on a metal sink with insufficient insulation. In this case, the sink itself can become a "continuation" of the faucet, and it will turn on just by touching the sink. The problem will be gone when the faucet is installed with a proper insulation.

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. Smart touch recognition systems are present in all the touch faucets of acceptable quality. A faucet without the ability to recognize a touch is really not worth having. In my research on the touch faucet supply, I was not able to find a single one without this functionality. I′m sure that even if there are any at all, they would never be able to earn high customer points or positive comments. Knowing that, you don′t even have to dive deep into manuals and descriptions. It is enough to search for a particular faucet on your favorite online vendor site to see how others have rated it. Touch faucets without touch recognition cannot be considered quality products. If there are such for sale, they won′t be able to earn positive feedback.

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.

Sometimes a faucet type can be determined by the outer appearance, but often the faucet must be taken apart to identify what kind of faucet it is. The four faucet designs come under two categories: washer and washer-less.

The most common reaction is fear that the faucet will be turned on and left running too often. But in real life, that is seldom the case. For a number of reasons, these faucets have turned out to be much more convenient for use in families with children than the non-sensitive ones. First and foremost, it is the ease of access to water that touch faucets secure for the children who are just learning how to use a faucet. When they need water, they do not have to reach the handle and operate it. They only need to reach any part of the faucet and touch it to get the water running. This relieves parents and adds fun for the children whilst helping them learn more quickly. When it comes to leaving the water running, just imagine how much easier it is for the children to turn the water off with just a touch than operating the handle to the off position. It is also a good deal of fun to turn the faucet off by touching it. So it′s no wonder that the touch sensitive faucets are left running much less frequently.
