Touchless faucets make it easier and cleaner to use the sinks in your kitchen and bathrooms. Thanks to a built-in sensor, water begins to flow when you place an item under the spout and stops when you remove it. 

Here are five points to consider when you decide whether an automatic faucet installation is beneficial for your home or not.

1. Touchless Faucet Installation Saves Water

Touchless faucets drastically reduce water usage when compared to a regular tap because they only operate when you need them to. When you turn the water on, your plumbing pumps out around two gallons of water every minute. As a result, a typical faucet flushes gallons of water down the drain while we wash our hands, clean the dishes, or brush our teeth.

A touchless faucet eliminates the problem of wasted water. Because air is combined with the water, hands-free faucets are engineered to have a considerably lower flow rate. You may get the impression that you’re using a larger amount of water, but you’re actually using less than you would with a regular faucet. Over time, you can see significant savings on your water bill.

2. Keeps Germs at Bay

When you’re considering a touchless faucet installation, think about your health. We learned the importance of having clean hands during the COVID-19 pandemic. Touchless faucets help keep germs at bay in public settings and when you return home.

Because you can’t wash your hands prior to using the sink, your faucet handles harbor bacteria, such as coliform bacteria, E. coli, and even staph. The handles of commonly used faucets in the home can host thousands of germs per square inch.

Automatic faucets are a beneficial addition to ensure the safety and health of your family and friends.

3. Simple to Use

The most appealing feature of a touchless faucet is how simple it is to use. All you need to do is place your hands in front of the sensor to start the water flow. It’s as simple as that. When you finish washing your hands or rinsing your toothbrush, the water turns off. Touch-free faucets are also easy for young children and seniors to use.

Individuals who have arthritis, hand injuries, or other concerns may find touchless faucets refreshingly simple to use.

4. Greater Convenience in the Kitchen

Preparing food in the kitchen is considerably easier with a touchless faucet. You won’t have to turn it on and off while cutting, chopping, and slicing vegetables and fruit that you want to rinse. When you’re working with raw meat, it eliminates the need to touch the handle with your dirty hands!

5. Touchless Faucets Are Safer

Taking care of family and guests is an essential part of being a homeowner. Hands-free sinks with fixed temperature settings prevent accidents that could result in burns. Whether you’re living with children, the elderly, or just want a safer method for washing your hands, a touchless faucet is a great choice!
