But when there are small children, the touch function comes in particularly handy. It is easier for them to get the water they need without asking adults for help. They don′t need to reach the handle and operate it. All they need to do is to tap somewhere on the faucet. It is not likely either that they would leave the water running. It has been found that children often find it fun to tap on the faucet to turn the water off.
Cartridge Faucet - this washerless faucet is identified by the narrow metal or plastic cartridge inside the faucet body; and it is available in both single and double handled cartridge designs. Cartridge faucets have a hollow cartridge insert that lifts and rotates to control the flow and temperature of water. Dripping at the spout occurs when the cartridge seals wear out. Leaks at the base are caused by worn o-rings.
Somewhere deep inside, many people would have loved a touch sensitive faucet in their kitchen. However, the ability of a faucet to turn on with just a light touch may sound too tricky, unbalanced, unpredictable and uncontrollable. What if there are young children or pets in the kitchen that can activate the faucet by accident? The most widespread reason for rejecting touch sensitive faucets is just the fear that it may not be suitable for families with children or pets.
Uncontrolled operation is the main fear that makes people who would otherwise have chosen a touch sensitive faucet decide to have a non-sensitive one. It is easy to believe that such faucets are not suitable for families with young children or pets that stay in the kitchen.
