The kitchen faucet is unlike the other faucets elsewhere in a house. It usually has a more complex design to allow for flexibility in food preparation and clean-up, and has greater water flow than standard bathroom faucets. Kitchen faucets also come with a variety of options and features to make them more convenient. If you would like to upgrade an older kitchen faucet in your home, or if you need to have one installed for a new kitchen, contact the skilled plumbers at The Sunny Plumber today. We offer quality work and a wide range of products when it comes to plumbing in Phoenix, AZ and the surrounding areas.
Here are a few options to consider when you are in the market for a new kitchen faucet:
You use a tremendous amount of water in the kitchen every day, and the kitchen faucet is unfortunately a fixture that often wastes water. If you install a special low-flow model, you can cut back on water use by a third without suffering any noticeable decline in performance.
Pull-out and pull-down spray faucets
These are faucets that have a high-pressure sprayer on a hose built into the faucet itself, rather than using a separate side-sprayer. You can pull out the sprayer from the faucet in order to handle cleaning and other tasks with greater ease. The two types are not exactly the same (although the terms are often used interchangeably), so ask your plumber about which option best suits your kitchen and your specific needs.
If your old faucet used the standard two handles to operate water flow and temperature, you might consider making the switch to using a single handle to take care of all functions. Although convenient, you may decide that a single handled faucet isn’t a good match for your kitchen design.
When you are selecting a new faucet, you need to balance out both practical and aesthetic factors in order to find the right one for all your needs. Consider how much use the sink receives, how many people use it, and what particular tasks it serves the most. This will help you narrow down your options. A professional plumber will assist with making the best choice, and then handle the actual installation to see that the new faucet works the way you want it.
