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.
Touch faucets are fantastic and are quickly growing in popularity. These hands-free kitchen faucets turn on and off with just a light touch of a hand or arm. These faucets are becoming a favorite in "aging in place" kitchens or with the disabled. These are wonderful additions to any food prep sink because they are so easy to turn on with dough or flour covered hands. They are also useful for a potting bench sink.
Of all the fixtures and appliances the kitchen faucet is probably the one we use the most. According to faucet manufacturer KWC, the average family uses the kitchen faucet more than 40 times a day. Whether it's hand washing, rinsing off dishes, filling a pasta pot or washing vegetables, the kitchen faucet gets a real workout every day. So when it's time to buy a new faucet you need to know how to choose one that will do it's job and will keep doing it for years to come.
