A hands-free faucet is a common sight in many commercial settings, namely in restaurants and in retail restrooms. But did you know that hands-free faucets are becoming a more popular choice for residential use as well? Hands-free faucets have many benefits for you to consider, here are just a couple of them.
Pay attention when you’re washing your hands. Whenever you wash your hands, you use up to two gallons of water at a time. A hands-free faucet can reduce the amount of water that you use. Turning off a standard faucet can be a hassle, especially if you’re running low on time. With a hands-free faucet installed, you won’t have to worry about that anymore. A hands-free faucet will turn off by itself when you’re done with it. Considering the number of times you wash your hands in a day, in a week, even in a month; you can save huge amounts of water in the long run. Conserving water is an enormous environmental concern. Not only will a hands-free faucet help the environment, but it can also save you money on your water bill as well.
A full house can be hectic, especially when the same bathroom has to be shared among several people. Maybe your family members don’t have the same hygiene habits that you do. Poor hygiene makes it much easier for germs to flourish. If you don’t have to touch the handles on your faucet, you can help prevent the rapid spread of germs. Having a hands-free faucet can also help keep everyone in your family healthy, especially if you have children.
Easier to Clean
Compared to a traditional faucet, a hands-free faucet is much easier to clean. For instance, it’s harder to notice when a hands-free faucet gets dirty. If you have cleaner hands from a hands-free faucet, your plumbing fixtures will be cleaner too. Cleaner fixtures mean you don’t need to spend as much time polishing and cleaning them all. Hands-free faucets work especially well in the kitchen.
