Frequently Asked Questions

What are the different types of faucets called?

The most common faucet is the an 8" which mounts onto the top of the sink, with threaded shanks or bolts passing down through mating holes. The terms "8-inch" or "8-inch centers" or "8-inch widespread" refer to a model which mounts to a sink which has mounting holes positioned eight inches apart, center-to-center.

A "widespread faucet" is a faucet meant to be mounted a minimum of 8" center to center, or wider. These faucets have separate rough valves allowing for various center to center spreads. Some widespreads can accomodate up to a 20" center to center application, though, it will depend on your hoses. Should you have a need for a faucet spread greater than 8" please speak with a consultant.

A "mini-widespread" is like a widespread but with a 4-inch center to center instead of 8 or 12 inches.

A single "center mount" (also called the "post-type", or "single hole") requires only one sink hole for passage of the water supplies and for mounting.

A "center set" or "4-inch" is a Lavatory faucet that is 4" center to center from handle to handle.

Another style of bathroom or kitchen faucet is the "wall-mount". Instead of mounting onto the sink deck, this type installs into the backsplash of a sink, or into the wall itself above the sink.

What do I use to clean my fixtures?

Do not, under any circumstances, use scouring agents, abrasive sponges, hydrochloric acid, i.e. so-called lime-scale removers, vinegar (acetic acid)-based cleaners, ammonia or metal silicates. Such cleaners are likely to damage the finish. You can prevent lime deposits from forming by always wiping your faucets dry immediately after use. The best way to clean your faucets is to wipe them with a wet, soapy cloth, rinse off and wipe dry. LuxuryH2O offers cleaning agents that are designed specifically for the type of finish you have on your fixture.

What is the difference between a ceramic disc cartridge versus compression, or O-ring seal?

Ceramic cartridges are two ceramic disks that sit on top of each, allowing the handles to open and close at precisely the same spot every time. A compression valve uses washers which continually wear out forcing you to adjust the handle position until the washers wear down completely and then must be replaced. O-rings get very stiff and the faucet handles become hard to turn off and on.
