Your faucet type is an essential first step before any repair. This tutorial will give you an overview of the four most common types of faucets used in the home:
  • Ball

  • Disc

  • Cartridge

  • Compression

The first three (ball, disc, and cartridge) are all types of "washerless faucets" since they do not use rubber or neoprene washers. The latter (compression) is very much like your basic washer faucet. Take a look at each type and gain an overview of how they work and how they're different. You can access links to a repair tutorial for each type.

Ball faucets are very common in kitchen sinks and were the first type of washerless faucet. They are identifiable by their single handle that moves over a rounded ball-shaped cap right above the base of the faucet spout. The ball faucet has a single handle that controls a special plastic or metal ball inside the faucet body. This ball has chambers or slots in it, along with rubber O-rings and spring-loaded rubber seals. Depending on the ball's position, the ball/lever assembly controls the flow and mixing temperature of the water coming out of the faucet.

Because of the number of parts which make up this type of faucet, ball faucets tend to leak more than other washerless faucets such as the cartridge faucet or disc faucet.

Handle Type: Single

 

Ceramic disk faucets are the latest development in modern faucet technology. They are identifiable by their single lever over a wide cylindrical body. The disk faucet mixes hot and cold water inside a mixing chamber called a pressure balance cartridge. Two ceramic disks at the bottom of the chamber will raise and lower to control the volume of water flow. The temperature is controlled by a side-to-side rotation of the handle. These faucets are high quality, very reliable, and do not need repair very often.

Handle Type: Single

Double-handle cartridge faucets look almost indistinguishable from a compression washer faucet. However, you can tell the difference by how the handles feel when used. A compression faucet requires you to tighten down (compress) the washer to close the water flow. With a cartridge faucet, the action is smooth and consistent. With a half turn, the handle goes from the off to the on position. The faucet turns off without added pressure being required as with a compression faucet.

Handle Type: Single or Double

Compression washers have been around since the beginning of on-demand indoor plumbing. They are found in older homes, and updated versions are often found used in utility sinks in newer homes to this day. These faucets are typically the least expensive but are most prone to leaks and maintenance. Compression washer faucets are identifiable by their separate hot and cold water handles and their action requiring you to tighten the handles down to close off the water flow. These faucets work by using a compression stem, which is a type of glorified screw with a washer at the end of it pressing against a valve seat.

Handle Type: Double

Bathroom Faucet Mounting Types

Not all bathroom sink faucets work with every sink, so it's important to make sure the faucet you choose will fit your sink or basin. Standard faucet drillings are centerset, single-hole or widespread.

4-Inch Centerset

Single-Hole

Vessel

These taller faucets are meant to complement a vessel sink, which sits higher than other sink types. Vessel sink faucets typically come with a single, multifunction handle.

Wall-Mounted
Wall mounted bathroom faucets in chrome finishWall-mounted bathroom faucet options are available for above-the-counter and freestanding basins that require a long spout for extended reach. They won't work with basins that have drilled holes. Wall-mounted faucets require a separate wall-mounted valve and drain for installation. Make sure the spout is long enough for adequate basin clearance. Check that the sink is deep enough to prevent water from splashing on your floor or countertops.
Widespread
Widespread bathroom cifial faucetsWidespread bathroom faucets work with three-hole basins. They have three separate pieces, two handles and a spout, and the spacing between the handles ranges from 6 to 16 inches.
