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.
Today's faucets are commonly made from brass with various finishing such as gold plating and powder-coated enamel. However, brass contains lead which can cause lead poisoning that will eventually lead to many serious health problems. Due to this, all faucet manufacturers in the U.S. are not allowed to include more than 8 percent of this substance in their brass faucets, according to the Safe Drinking Water Act. If you are concerned about your health, you might want to look into other alternative such as ceramic faucets since ceramic does not contain dangerous chemicals that might harm our body.
If you were to take some time to visit a local hardware stores or any other retailer shops which sell faucets, you would definitely be overwhelmed by the many brands like Moen, GROHE, Delta, American Standard and many more. And if you think that is not overwhelming enough, think about the different designs and styles. For example, some faucets may come with only one handle while others come with two. What about the finishes? You have the stainless steel, chrome, bronze, nickel and many others to choose from. With so many different options, it is no wonder many people look for kitchen faucet ratings to help them decide.
