Touchless Faucets – The Benefits

We are used to seeing many touchless faucets outside of our homes in restaurants or stores but automatic faucets are gaining in popularity for residential plumbing as well. The benefits of a touchless faucet are many. Take a look at three reasons why you may want to consider a hands-free faucet:

Discover the benefits of water conservation

According to Avon Lake Regional Water, 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. So much water is wasted when people don’t turn off the faucet out of laziness or negligence. Whether it’s leaving the water running while brushing one’s teeth, or forgetting to shut the tap after the bathtub has been filled, there’s no denying that a lot of people’s bad habits lead to avoidable water wastage. And don’t forget those folks who don’t turn off faucets properly! Using USGS’ drip calculator, a faucet releasing three drips a minute wastes a liter more than one liter a day, or approximately 104 gallons a year. A single drop of water may not seem much, but when the numbers add up, the results are significant.

Prevent the spreading of germs

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. For families with children, hands-free faucets are a great addition to the home to keep everyone safe and healthy.

Keep your faucets clean

A hands-free faucet doesn’t get as visibly dirty as traditional faucets. Whether you are cooking or doing cleaning of any kind, with a hands-free faucet you can easily clean your hands without transferring the mess to your plumbing fixture.
