The faucet is something we use frequently. Rusty faucet rowing is a very painful thing, and it is even more troublesome if it is broken. Therefore, when buying a faucet, we might consider choosing touch sensor kitchen faucet or touchless wall mount faucet.


Non-contact faucets are used in commercial kitchens and public bathrooms to help conserve water and reduce the spread of bacteria. Using touchless kitchen faucet can reduce the chance of other family members being exposed to E. coli or Salmonella.


Touchless commercial kitchen faucets can limit the spread of germs and bacteria, reduce cleaning time, and help save water and energy, comply with ADA standards and benefit people with disabilities.

What are the precautions for installing non-contact faucets?


Non-contact faucets are often used in toilets in public places, and there is an infrared sensor below the location of the faucet. When a hand or a dish is close to the sensor, it will receive a signal and the water will flow out automatically, and the faucet will stop instantly when it leaves. This type of faucet is clean and sanitary, and can save water.


1. Faucet Activation


Just like the faucet in a public toilet, the faucet added at home cannot be separated from a sensor that senses movement.


When you wave your hand under the sensor, it is very convenient that the sink can be opened immediately. The sensor needs to be installed correctly or set to the best distance. Clean the sensor regularly to remove soap scale, hard water film, grease splash and dust.

2. Faucet Power Supply


The touchless faucet sensor requires power to work. Currently, there are several power options, including batteries, sockets or hard-wired, solar, and turbines.


Battery-powered faucets are inexpensive. In addition, the frequency of the battery and the cost of these costs are things to consider. In contrast, the use of rechargeable batteries can be an excellent alternative.


It is necessary to install wall sockets or hard wiring near the sink. Most solar faucets still require batteries as a backup power source.


Turbine-powered faucets can greatly reduce the frequency of battery replacement. The non-contact faucet has an override mode or backup battery.

The internal parts of the faucet are made of different materials. Zinc is the cheapest, and brass is the expensive model.


In order to improve appearance and durability, faucets usually adopt surface treatment. Faucets of different materials can be adapted to the overall layout.


Whether you choose a traditional faucet or a non-contact faucet, you must choose a reliable brand!
