The cleverly engineered touch sensitivity system distinguishes between "touch" and "grip". When you tap it, your hand needs to be removed from the faucet within a fraction of a second. If the hand stays on the faucet, it is identified as a "grip", and the faucet does not respond. So it is practically impossible for pets to activate it.
But do these fears have substance? Haven′t the engineers and designers of the best touch sensitive kitchen faucets anticipated these situations? Do we still have to deny ourselves the liberating feeling of operation with a touch and choose a more basic faucet only because we are not sure it will live up to the expectations?
Faucet manufacturers make several types of replacement kits for ball-type faucets; some kits have only the springs and neoprene valve seats, while better kits also have the cam and cam washer.
