Hands-free Fixtures Or Touchless Plumbing

What Is Touchless Plumbing?

Touchless plumbing is any sort of plumbing fixture that does not require the user to manually turn it on. It is one of the most recent trends in plumbing, also known as “touch-free”, “no-touch”, or “hands-free” fixtures. The hands-free faucets and flushometers have built in sensors that detect when a user is near, automatically turning water on and off. Automatic plumbing technology is not new but has become the direction we are taking for the future of plumbing

Hands-free faucet

The hands-free or touch-free faucet has been engineered with a proximity sensor that opens up the tap’s valve when it senses hand motions. It has also been designed to close the valve once the sensor no longer detects any hand motions.

Hands-free flushometers

The hands-free or touch-free flush is activated when the user leaves and the sensor no longer detects a presence. Touchless plumbing is commonly seen in hotels, airports, and public restrooms, but is now becoming popular in residential homes as well. These plumbing fixtures are now a viable option to install in homes, primarily for ease and convenience, but also to cut down on the transfer of germs.

Benefits of Touchless Plumbing…

Conserves Water​ – By automatically turning off when no one is using them, faucets with electric sensors can cut water usage by as much as 40%. Sloan’s ECOS flushometer not only decides when to flush, but how much to flush, based on how long the user remains in range. This fluctuation in the amount of water used results in significant water savings from these eco-friendly fixtures. In this way, water is being used as efficiently as possible. Touchless plumbing benefits the consumer by often reducing their water bill but at the same time is protecting the environment by saving water. Touchless technoogy is green technology. Prevents the Spread of Germs​ – Faucets and flushers are some of the most touched areas in a bathroom and they are handled before the user washes their hands. By not having to touch the flushers or faucets, the risk of spreading germs and bacteria is minimized. The buildup of bacteria is decreased and the risk of illness reduced. Most people agree that touchless technology is a much cleaner option. Easy to Use​ – The fixtures are easy to use and safer as touch-free faucets protect users from scalding injuries associated with ordinary hand operated faucets. Touchless plumbing is a great installation to any home since it has revolutionized how we use water. This technology has made life easy and convenient. It also is sure to increase the value of your home, as it is considered a luxurious feature. So if you are considering upgrading to the sensor faucet or hands free flushometer, call Zeek Plumbing. We look forward to improving your home’s water efficiency and saving you money at the same time!

5-STAR GOOGLE REVIEWS FROM OUR CUSTOMERS

We are sooo happy with our experiences with Zeek! We had them out twice - they did a bunch of repairs for us and then when it turned out the problem was deeper than we thought they came back and stuck with it until they figured it out. They were professional, neat, safe and thorough. Huge thanks to Rich for coming out to diagnose the problem and the whole team for hanging in until it was fixed!

My family and I cannot thank Zeek Plumbing enough! We had a horrible experience with Best Buy trying to get our new washer/dryer installed when we moved into our new house. The team Best Buy hired was a no call/no show twice! Then they said they didn't have the parts they needed, so we ended up canceling their service. We finally came across Zeek and Bill was able to come out the next morning. He was very nice and professional and clearly an expert in his field. The job was done perfectly within a few hours and now our new home is up and running like a well oiled machine. We will definitely be calling Zeek back for anything needed in the future. Thank you!

ZEEK plumbing came through when our Water Heater failed. Called other plumbers but ZEEK was the only one to offer and on the spot estimate and immediate response to replace our water heater.I have used ZEEK before and once again a most professional crew arrived and completed the installation in a timely proficient manner. I would highly recommend ZEEK to anyone's plumbing needs. They truly focus on customer care which is evident in the services performed, THANK YOU ZEEK!

I had a leak from my upstairs bathroom which was coming from an old 3” copper drain pipe connected to the toilet. Tim from Zeek Plumbing replaced the 3’ section of drain pipe with plastic and braced the new pipe to make sure it remained sloped in the right direction. Tim also reinforced the flooring under the toilet which had weakened over the years, and now the support is very strong. Tim was very professional and most importantly wanted to make sure the job was done right!
