Are Touchless Fixtures The Future of Plumbing?

Due to the global pandemic and the search for safe alternatives to everyday life, touchless fixtures will be the future of plumbing. More businesses, homes, and offices are looking for ways to conduct simple tasks without spreading diseases or infections. Touchless plumbing fixtures are the perfect solution within the plumbing industry. You already see them stationed at football stadiums, bars, and other venues with large customer bases, but they will be headed everywhere soon enough.

5 Reasons Why Touchless Plumbing Is A Priority

1. Cleanliness

It is common knowledge that public restrooms and gang baths are not the most sanitary. Despite the fact that many of these bathrooms are washed daily, hundreds (even thousands) of people use them every single day. The task of keeping them clean all the time is nearly impossible. The spread of germs is inevitable.

2. Water Bill and Utilities Savings

Touchless fixtures, by design, will shut off without the detection of a user. This prevents any faucet from being left on accidentally or from being used in excess. You may think a couple seconds of water savings per user is not a lot. However, over the course of a year or decade, the water savings continue to add up. Imagine you own or operate an office building or bar/restaurant. The amount of users per day, per week, and yearly could be in the thousands. Keeping each user to a calculated water consumption can save you money. As per the WaterSense Program, “WaterSense products have already saved Americans more than 3.4 Trillion gallons of water and more $84.2 billion dollars worth water and energy expenses.”

3. Public Health

During the time this country and the world is facing, preventing the spread of diseases is at the utmost importance. The technology is ready for people to be able to go to the bathroom in a public or private setting without having to touch anything. Faucets, toilets, and soap dispensers can all be operated without the spread of germs. The sensors within the fixtures take care of everything for you. All diseases and germs that spread from those surfaces via human touch would be stopped in their tracks.

4. State and National Rebates

There are several different state and federal programs across the country that offer rebates for installing touchless fixtures. More specifically, the Environment Protection Agency’s WaterSense program offers several rebates regarding water conservation. Please refer to their list for all the programs they offer for different municipalities across each state. Zeek Plumbing recommends you check them out to save money!

5. State and National Mandates

Due to varying climates across the country, states and cities can impose water restrictions due to how prone they are to water shortages. For example, the State of California has imposed a list of permanent restrictions. Other states have introduced seasonal restrictions as well. Touchless fixtures will assist you in maintaining water usage below the state rules.

Summary

Zeek Plumbing recommends touchless and hands free fixtures for any new plumbing fixtures. Touchless fixtures are typically more expensive than the standard counterparts. However, the water bill savings over the long run will definitely make up for the difference. As the world returns to normalcy post-coronavirus, there will be some long lasting changes to our daily lives. Stopping the spread of germs and diseases will be at the forefront. Hands free fixtures can assist you today with that battle, and will not change your routine in the slightest. Zeek Plumbing is always available at 866-635-0200 to assist you with any questions or concerns you may have on touchless fixtures.

5-STAR GOOGLE REVIEWS FROM OUR CUSTOMERS

I called Zeek Plumbing on a recommendation from my old plumber, who had moved away, after my hot water heater died. They were able to come out and get me set up with a new one in relatively short order. I'm definitely saving their number for any future plumbing issues I may have.

Zeek is the best! Steve in the office is top notch and a pleasure to deal with. Tim showed up on time and completed the repair with no issues. Highly recommend Zeek Plumbing.

They came to my house for a routine service call for a few various things that needed to be looked at. I'm very satisfied with the process. They walked me through potential issues they saw, walked me through what they'd do, and gave me advice on how to handle some of the smaller things in the future. I will definitely use them again in the future.

Yet another great experience with Zeek Plumbing. We've used Zeek to install a new hot water heater and most recently they came out to fix a drainage and diverter issue with our bathtub. They also repaired a sink installation and tightened up a loose toilet. Zeek Plumbing has been our go to plumber for over 5 years.

I called on a Sunday and Steve got right back to me. He sent out a tech on the following Tuesday to reseat two toilets. I was able to wait no emergency and I saved money not having the tech do the job on the weekend. The job was done neatly and everything was immaculate when I got home. These guys are professional and trustworthy!! ZEEK PLUMBING is the way to go!!

Timmy and RJ were excellent. The staff ant Zeek plumbing is fast, courteous, and provide their services at a tremendous value. I would highly recommend them for your plumbing needs.

Zeek did the gas line installation for our new natural gas grill. Everything was done professionally and every team member we engaged with were very friendly. Even when there was a slight mishap during inspection, Zeek responded promptly and handled everything great. We now have a very good looking gas line hookup on the deck and the first steaks and burgers are already done!

We use then commercially and industrially. They've never let us down. Far better and more caring plumbers than most out there. They've done residential repairs for friends of mine on jobs that others haven't been able to correct. In one shot, they diagnosed and corrected the problems without a callback. Like tattoos, good work ain't cheap and cheap work ain't good. Spend the money on them and get it done right, the first time

Just wanted to give a shout out to Zeek Plumbing! Our hot water heater went Monday afternoon and they were at our house by 8am Tuesday to fix it. Ryan was super easy and nice to work with and made sure that all of my questions were answered and I understood the next steps.The technicians that came to install the water heater were great! They were neat, friendly, quick and efficient. I would highly recommend Zeek Plumbing!

We had a leak in our baseboard heat. Called Zeek at 8 am with a non-emergency and the team was at our house by 1 pm. Rich and Oliver were great, knowledgeable, and worked quickly and clean. I knew enough to DIY the fix, but didn't want to risk it and I will say it isn't often that a professional puts in as much care as the homeowner, but they very much did - even taking the time to answer my questions around the specific tools they used. I will absolutely make Zeek my first call for the next plumbing fix.

Zeek Plumbing is the best! I called and they said someone would arrive within the hour and someone actually arrived within the hour. We had a dripping pipe in the basement and the issue was resolved quickly and efficiently. I very highly recommend Zeek Plumbing!!
