We need to replace our kitchen faucet and I'm seeking opinions on motion-activated and one-touch pull down faucets. We have a pull down now, but I'm wondering if anyone has any experience, good or bad, with either of the two options I'm considering. Any input would be helpful. Thanks in advance!

i looked at the motion sensor ones when i was replacing mine. I was really tempted but then i wondered if was it worth the money, what if the sensor goes.....so i went with a pull down. mine is 2 pieces though, the section to turn the water on and off is separate from the faucet. now when i have really messy hands i wish i had the motion sensor one :lol: sorry not much help

Thanks, Linda. I'm leaning toward the one with the sensor, but hoped to hear from someone that had one. Even if the sensor dies, it's still a pull down! :lol:

I like the concept of sensor but having just spent 2 weeks in public bathrooms :shock: :lol: how many times did I go low, high, wiggled my hands....move to the next faucet :roll: I would ask why 'this faucet' is better than the public bathroom ones that seem to be a hit or miss.

My brother has the sensor one and when I am there I love it.
I would have kept the one I bought but it was high profile and I needed a smaller profile and I wasn't willing to spend a fortune for that.
I'd say of you can, do it.
I love the touchless ones in the ladies room at work, so long as the cleaning people don't move the sensors...

Edit, I think the sensor (at least at work) is just a battery replacement when it goes.

We have it I love it Karen not so much. Batteries have needed changing once in 3 years. Karen answer to your question is batteries need replacement.

Yes, it takes either 4 or 6 AA batteries to run the sensor. You can also turn the sensor off and just use it as a pull down faucet. The installation looks very straightforward and simple. That's after I turn myself into a contortionist and get under the sink!

I'm glad I'm not the only that has these issues. Wave my hands under, lower, higher, closer, move back a bit.....I say (under my breath) WTF is wrong with this faucet??!!!! :lol: :lol:
