Typically, homeowners will use the same kitchen sink tap to wash dishes or get water to drink. Instead of using the single tap for everything, you can separate functions and add a beverage faucet to the right or left of your traditional faucet. While an extra faucet may seem redundant at first, the use of a dedicated beverage faucet can come with multiple benefits.
Check out some of the benefits below and learn ways a beverage faucet can improve the way you drink water in the kitchen.
1. Dedicated Filtration
When you install a new beverage faucet, you can connect a filtration system to just go through the beverage pipes. With a filtration system, your water comes out clean and tastes better. Many filtration systems have a limited use before you have to replace filters or refill cartridges.
If everything goes through the main sink process, then you do not want to waste filtered water on everyday tasks like rinsing off dishes. Once you purchase a new faucet, you can follow the installation instructions to add the filtered line to the faucet or rely on the services of a plumber.
2. Cold Water Access
Typically, when you want drinking water, you want fresh cold water. If you get water from the main sink faucet, the water could come out warm or hot depending on the last setting that was used. With a dedicated beverage faucet, only the cold water will feed into the faucet.
With the setup, you can easily enjoy fresh cold water and do not have to wait like you would with standard faucets.
3. Lower Profile
Typically, a beverage faucet will have a lower profile than a traditional faucet. The shorter faucet allows you to easily place cups near the faucet. Along with short cups and mugs, the extra space allows you to easily fill up water bottles, pitchers, and other drink containers. You do not need to worry about maneuvering the cup in or not being able to fill the cup.
The lower profile also makes it easy to fill other containers like coffee pots, tea kettles, or pots for when you need to boil water. The little extras can eliminate a lot of frustration in the kitchen and save you extra time overall.
Browse online for various beverage faucet options. Along with the design, many of the faucets include finishes that can match the current faucet you have or a new standard faucet you plan to purchase.
