How Does a Touchless Faucet Apply To Your Bathroom

a no-touch Faucet

The so called no-touch or touchless sink faucets are now rapidly coming into not only public but also and residential use.The trending reasons are not the only ones. Installing a no-touch faucet is a great idea for both complete bathroom or kitchen remodeling and sink vanity update. For now kitchen touchless fausets are more prevalent than the bathroom ones amongst the big fauset manufacturers.

What are the benefits of installing a touchless sink faucet?

The trending factor does not even need to be discussed. The lack of knobs and any other manual controls makes these no-touch faucets a perfect fit to your smart home's bathroom. We are all well aware of the fact that when something becomes a fashion everyone wants to have it no matter if this item is of any use or more practicle than their old one. But in this case fashion maniacs are lucky to have many good reasons for following these current trends.

Hygiene is one of the greatest benefits of no-touch faucets, but definitely not the only one. The movements of your hands activate a sensor at the base of the faucet and the water starts to flow. These motion-activated fittings avoid hand contact and respectively germs transmission. A preferable rate of water flow and temperature can be set to most of these touchless fixtures even before the first use, which will avoid the need of further setting up and hand contact.

Being environmentally friendly is another important benefit that needs to be mentioned here. This Eco-friendliness comes from the fact that the water flow is triggered only by a hand movement, directly in front of the faucet. The water will stop flowing on its own during the time you spend in brushing your teeth or while you scrub your hands with soap.

Touchless faucets are not only environmentally friendly but also and economical. This is probably the benefit that concerns you the most. People don't realise what is the quality of the water they waste when not stopping the water while they wash their teeth, until they see for themselves the difference in their new water bills. Thanks to the new intelligent electronics this water waste can be minimised by preventing water to flow when not being needed.

The easier bathroom maintenance is another benefit that concerns all housewives. These faucets remain clean longer because of the fact that you don have to touch these fixtures with soupy hands constantly.

Who can deal with the installation of these faucets?

Lets start with noting that most no-touch faucets require only one hole in the sink, which means that you should deal with this first. The problem comes from the fact that most sinks originally come with two or three pre-bored holes. So if you are planning to reconstruct you old sink and turn it into a modern one with а touchless faucet, you will probably have to replace the sink basin before even moving to the faucet.

For doing so you should find some licensed plumbing company to deal with the faucet installation. When you make your plumbing company choice you need to consider some things. When contacting the customer support team, don't forget to ask if the plumbers are insured, properly licensed, if they've installed that kind of products before and which is the line they would recommend. Pay special attention to the customer reviews.
