Bathroom Faucets - About Widespread Faucets
Widespread bathroom faucets are known for their versatile style and design, better suited to be installed in bathrooms with ample space. Widespread faucets consist of the spout and the two faucet handles (Usually an 8" spread between the two handles).
Benefits: A more elegant look for larger bathroom spaces.
Application: Expansive sink areas with at least 12" of available space for faucet installation.
Designed as a 3-hole installation setup.
Installing widespread faucets allow flexibility as holes can be mounted 8-16" apart.
Bathroom Faucets - Water Flow Rate
All of Kingston's bathroom faucets feature a 1.2 GPM (Gallons per minute) water flow at 60 PSI.
4 Types of Cartridges for Bathroom Faucets
The ceramic disc cartridge is a self-contained system consisting of two ceramic discs with quarter-circle openings rotating one on top of the other and controls water flow by (a) lining up or (b) covering the openings. Due to its nature, ceramic carbide does not wear out due to friction, however special care should be taken in flushing all the lines prior to installing your faucet since any debris in the line may crack one or both of the ceramic discs.
The washerless cartridge consists of a neoprene donut-shaped stopper that which seals the flow of water by maintaining constant pressure against a steel plate with the aid of a spring. The plate has a crescent-shape opening, so as the cartridge turns, the opening is aligned with the opening of the neoprene seal, allowing water flow. As the faucet is turned off, the opening of the seal is blocked by the solid portion of the stainless steel plate, blocking water flow.
Stainless Steel Ball Valves
The Kingston stainless steel ball valve is described as a spherical-shaped device that features small round slots with a small control lever. When the lever is moved, the object's movement controls the flow and the temperature of the water. The use of the handle allows the ball to rotate inside the faucet. The valve is made from 304-grade stainless steel material, known to be tarnish and corrosion-resistant providing years of exceptional use.
Compression type cartridges was the original system used in production faucets, a shaft with a washer at its end is rotated in a corkscrew fashion until the rubber washer compresses against an opening preventing the flow of water. These cartridges are not as common now as most faucets are replaced by washerless or ceramic cartridge faucets.
