Cutting-edge technology always makes life better. It may take some time for the innovations to prove their worth. That said, we’ve come a long way since the invention of plumbing systems. Indoor plumbing is so common these days that we all take it for granted. Now the next stage of that concept is coming into its own: touchless plumbing fixtures. If you’re not familiar with them, read on and learn more!
So What Are Touchless Plumbing Fixtures?
Even though their name is self-evident, it’s still worth discussing what touchless plumbing fixtures are. They feature built-in motion detectors. Usually, these devices are triggered by someone waving a hand underneath the faucet attached to a sink. It doesn’t have to be a kitchen sink, either. They can go into bathrooms just as easily.
Consider Installing Touchless Toilets As Well
Another option is to install touchless toilets in your home. Such a notion probably sounds odd or counterintuitive. But we assure you, that isn’t the case. Hands-free technology is the basis of this type of plumbing system. Sensors detect when the user is finished with the toilet, and then the flusher activates accordingly. Manual buttons or levers are an integral part of this toilet, of course. It’s always good to have a backup feature!
What Are Some of the Benefits?
One of the biggest draws is the convenience of it all. That way, you can fill a pot (if you don’t already have a pot filler installed in your kitchen). Then it’s easier to wash your hands if you have raw meat or seafood juices on your hands. It’s not safe to touch anything else, so this configuration means you’re doing your part to prevent the spread of germs. With the COVID-19 pandemic generating new virus variants every few months, you can’t be too careful! Besides, you’ll save money on your utility bills. You’re saving water while avoiding needless waste.
Ideas for Choosing Touchless Faucets
By now, you’re probably intrigued enough to start researching which models are the most suitable for you. As such, we’ve got some ideas for you to peruse. For example, if you’re looking to upgrade your bathroom, think about the aesthetic and the dimensions. Primary bathrooms are larger than powder rooms, and half-baths are.
