3 REASONS TO INSTALL A TOUCHLESS FAUCET
We are beginning to see many touchless or hands-free faucets in restaurants, stores, and offices. These automatic faucets are gaining in popularity in the commercial world and for many good reasons. Here are three reasons you should consider a hands-free fixture in your place of business:
1. WATER CONSERVATION
Studies have shown that every time you wash your hands with a traditional manual type faucet, you are using about 2 gallons of water per minute! Hands-free or automatic 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 touchless faucets better for the environment but you should also see a decrease in your water bill as well.
2. 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 on or off to wash your hands. Having a hands-free faucet can help prevent other employees from becoming sick and missing work. A simple upgrade could pay for itself in lost work time and save employees the need to spend off in the doctor’s office.
3. REDUCES THE NEED FOR REPAIRS
Hands-Free faucets are not subject to the physical abuse that the traditional faucet receives. There are no handles, internal washers, packing glands or cartridges to become damaged from the constant use.
When considering a faucet for your commercial property, be sure to compare and contrast a traditional faucet to a touchless faucet. Never forget the benefits of going hands-free. The biggest benefit you can’t beat is never having to worry about someone leaving the water running, resulting in high water usage and a large bill! Save time, money, and health by going hands-free!
