Electronic Sensor Faucets Help Reopen America
June 02, 2020 | Plumbing Series
The Electronic Sensor Faucet is not a new product, but as COVID-19 has placed a spotlight on hygiene and hand-washing practices, this product, long used in commercial bathrooms to conserve water and maintain cleanliness, is helping America reopen. Right now we are seeing a major shift to touch-free faucets in various applications including schools, hospitals, bars, restaurants, hotels, office buildings, etc.
With social distancing measures in place, and an extra emphasis on sanitation and cleanliness in play, now, more than ever, it makes sense to switch to totally touchless electronic faucets.
Advanced Electronic Faucet FAQs
Can you tell us about the surge in popularity that you’re seeing?
COVID-19 has affected all major US markets, and nearly everyone in the market is working out options to go touch-free. Our diverse product offering, and high stock levels allowed us to supply electronic sensor faucets for a number of essential and non-essential projects across the US.
Can you retrofit an existing manual faucet with an electronic sensor faucet?
Yes, we have options for both single hole and 4-inch center deck and wall mount options available for retrofit.
We also offer complete hand sink packages with electronic faucets which include a stainless-steel sink, electronic sensor faucet, drain, and wall bracket. They are available in 3 different sizes with various faucet options.
How are electronic faucets powered?
Electronic faucets are available with two power options. With the standard battery-powered option, the lifespan of the batteries is 500,000 on-off cycles. How quickly you’ll actually go through those cycles, of course, depends on how much traffic and use the faucet sees.
