The Different Types of Available Faucets
Types of faucets include a variety of mechanisms such as disc, ball, cartridge and compression. They are designed to satisfy functionality and aesthetics. Ball faucets involve components that rather rapidly succumb to corrosion and require regular maintenance. They are susceptible to leaks. Cartridge and compression models look similar but the former is smoother when you move the handle. While they are more expensive than compression, cartridge models are more durable and reliable. Disc faucets are a modern innovation that are low in maintenance and high in price and durability.
Why do faucets drip?
Loose or defective O-ring
– When this rubber ring becomes defective, you’ll see water leaking at the base of the spout when you turn the handle.
Defective cartridge or valve seat
– Broken or cracked components within the cartridge faucet allow water to leak out.
Excessive water pressure
– If the water pressure is higher than the recommended range for the faucet, it will drip.
Loose connection or leak
– If you notice a dripping faucet and low pressure, the cause of the problem might be farther in the plumbing.
