No-touch or motion sensor faucets have been in commercial bathrooms for years, but some businesses still hold out on replacing the old faucets with these newer models. No-touch faucets have many benefits, especially for businesses trying to be more conscience of water conservation. Read on to learn what these benefits are.
As flawed beings, humans can be a little unreliable. Distracted or hurried people can often forget to turn off the water faucet or leave it running for longer than necessary. With an automatic faucet, there’s no need to worry. The faucet will turn off a few seconds after a hand is no longer present. No more dribbling faucets and wasted water.
These types of faucets can also be helpful to people with mobility problems. Turning a faucet isn’t always easy for those with problems such as arthritis. Automatic faucets create a more accessible environment for the disabled or elderly by removing the need to turn the faucet handle.
Since it is not necessary to touch the faucet to turn it on and off, fewer germs are spread. With fewer germs being passed employee to employee, it could mean lower sick-pay costs for the business in the long run. This would work best if the no-touch faucet was paired with an automatic toilet and paper towel dispenser too.
While businesses might feel switching out their current faucets for automatic faucets would be too expensive, in the end it could end up saving them money. There will be some initial expense, but the water they save and the potential lower sick-pay costs would add up.
For businesses ready to make the switch and reap the benefits of automatic faucets, call All Star Plumbing and Restoration for the installation. They can install the new faucets and readjust the plumbing if necessary.
