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.

But if you know how to connect an end of a pipe to the supply, you can do all the things on your own. Every faucet that is worth your attention will come with detailed instructions. But the process is highly intuitive, too. Basically, the lower part of the faucet comes through the installation hole on your sink or counter-top, hot and cold water pipes connected and the faucet fastened with nuts from beneath.

A canary landing on the faucet won′t activate it either. Well, how likely is a situation when your kitten would be sitting there and touching the faucet with its paw? Situations of this kind are extremely unlikely to happen. But even if they do once in a while, a good faucet has a built-in system that turns the water off automatically after a certain period of inactivity. It is usually configured somewhere between 3 and 5 minutes. So even if the faucet gets turned on by some unusual circumstance, the loss from that will be rather insignificant.

Tighten the plastic adjusting ring inside the cap by turning it with a special flat adjusting tool-or fit tow screwdrivers into the slots and cross their blades to turn the ring. If your ball-style faucet with this type of cap is leaking from the spout, first try tightening the cap with channel pliers. Still leaking? Disassemble and replace worn/broken parts. Often you need to lift out the ball and replace the rubber seats and springs on both sides of the valve. If the faucet leaks around the spout, replace worn o-rings. Replace rotating ball only if clearly worn.
