It has become commonplace to see touchless faucets outside of our homes in retail or in public establishments but automatic faucets are gaining in popularity for residential plumbing as well. There are many benefits to touchless faucets, Especially during the current Coronavirus Pandemic. Take a look at three reasons why you may want to consider a hands-free faucet:
Not having to touch your faucet can help prevent the spread of germs. Germs often linger on faucet handles, which means you can easily pick them up when you’re turning the water off after washing your hands. If you are anything like me, you have been spraying Lysol on the handles every time you or anyone in your household touches them during this COVID-19 outbreak.
A hands-free faucet doesn’t get as visibly dirty as traditional faucets. No more fingerprints all over! Whether you are cleaning or cooking, with a hands-free faucet you can easily clean your hands without transferring the mess to your plumbing fixture.
Every time you wash your hands, you’re using about 2.2 gallons of water per minute. Hands-free faucets turn off automatically, potentially conserving a significant amount of water each year. Water conservation is an important issue for all of us, not only are touch faucets better for the environment, but you may see your water bill decreasing as well.
