What are the advantages of disc taps and when would it make most sense to have one installed?

"Although taps with ceramic discs are more expensive they tend to last longer than the traditional rubber washer taps. They are 'easier' to use plus they are more aesthetically pleasing. I would advise going with a good brand as, again, although the cartridges should last a lot longer, if you do need to replace them it will be a lot easier with a better brand. They can be installed anywhere but are best installed in the bath or bathroom wash basin"

"They’re easier to turn on and definitely easier to turn off with wet hands. Usually great for older people. Not so great with little kids"
