✅ More Hygienic & Sanitary
To wash your hands, you have to use your dirty hands to turn the knobs to wash up. Imagine handling eggs or raw meat and then having to use those same hands to turn the knobs to turn on the sink to wash your hands… That contamination could lead to illness in another person.
Touchless faucets are much more hygienic and minimize cross-contamination between users since no one has to touch the faucet to use it. It lessens the spread of germs and grime, which also means your faucet will stay cleaner longer and require less frequent cleaning overall—In order words, the faucet can maintain itself for a long time.
✅ Water Conservation
Touchless faucets are built with low flow rates and often prevent leaks with quality materials. Many touchless faucets also have a built-in auto-off feature after 2-4 minutes, depending on the model, which can help save water.
With the manual temperature lever, the temperature can be set to your preference, so you don’t have to worry about water warming up or cooling down, which also saves water from running while you wait for the desired temperature. Plus, when you save water, you also save money on your water bill.
✅ Convenience & Accessibility
Touchless faucets are incredibly convenient to use by minimizing the amount of movement and time needed to turn the water on. It’s also easier to avoid scalding or freezing temperatures since you can preset a chosen temperature, or look at a “smart” LED light that indicates where the temperature is set.
Plus, it’s easy for everyone to use, from grandpa down to the little kids who wouldn’t be able to reach the handles. They are also ADA compliant and beneficial for folks with physical challenges.
