The most common faucet types are:
- Ball Faucets
- Disc Faucets
- Cartridge Faucets
- Compression Faucets
Ball, disc, and cartridge are all types of "washerless faucets". Washerless faucets do not use rubber or neoprene washers. Compression faucet is more basic.
Here we will give you an overview of these types of faucets:
Ball Faucets: Ball faucets are very common in kitchens and were the first type of washerless faucet. They have a single handle attached to a rounded cap directly above the spout.
Ball faucets tend to leak more than other washerless faucets because of the number of parts which make up this type of faucets.
Disc faucets: Ceramic disc faucet is one of the newest designs in faucet technology. The disc faucet mixes hot and cold water. This model has two ceramic discs at the bottom part of the lever that will raise and lower to control the volume of water flow. These faucets are high quality, are very reliable and do not need repair very often.
Cartridge Faucets: cartridge faucet is made up of two handles which either rotates left or right or moving up and down. It rarely suffers leakages compared to other faucets but leaks after an extended period of usage.
Compression Faucets: compression washer faucets are commonly found in older homes. You can identify a compression faucet by its two handles and a tight rotating motion that is needed to stop the flow of water.
