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!

We woke up this morning to water pouring out of our toilet, all of over the floor, down the to the basement, we were PANICKED! I called Zeek Plumbing and Steve was able to identify the problem over the phone and dispatch someone to come immediately to help us fix the issue. Within an hour everything was fixed and in working order. We're so grateful for the responsiveness and professionalism of his team.

I've used Zeek Plumbing several times now and they always do a great job whether its replacing a sump pump or working on an old furnace. Every time I've called they were able to come out very quickly and get the problem fixed.

My husband and I had our shower temporarily repaired by the incredibly kind and patient Rich and Ron. Our hot water knob would not shut off, and after trying to fix it ourselves— it turned out this was a job for the professionals. We tried calling a few plumbers in the area— naturally we ended up calling quite a few “not so confident” plumbers who didn’t even want to take the time to look at it in the Morris County NJ area. We have a 2 month old and having the water shut off to the entire house wouldn’t have been the best for us. We let Zeek know our situation and they told us they’d give us a call if their schedule opened up. I can tell you— they did not disappoint. They called us with availability as soon as it opened up and Rich and Ron came to the rescue. I was expecting a temporary repair anyway because our shower is on the older side and needs some detailed TLC. What I was not expecting was how quick and efficient the temporary fix took. Rich quickly made the diagnosis, let us know what was going on and patched it up for us. We can now run water to the house again, and take a shower— which was our goal! We are currently awaiting a complete service to replace a few things in order to have this shower running for many more years to come. I will update this review when that service is performed. Thank you Rich and Ron!

If ever you are in need of a plumber, look no further than Zeek Plumbing. We had a water leak going from the street to the house hook up. The repair was completed in an efficient and professional manner and the people were a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend and will definitely use them again.
Sharee C.
Zeek has done good work for me in the past. Most recently they came through and were unable to complete a job to no fault of their own. Turns out I have a much bigger problem on my hands that none of us expected to find. They made things right and I will be calling them again for work in the future.

I noticed a small leak in our kitchen ceiling and knew it was the upstairs toilet which was very old. I called a ton of plumbers and left messages. Zeek was the 1st plumber to call me back early Monday morning and advised me on next steps so we could get the new toilet installed and taken care of. The two reps were knowledgeable, friendly, explained the issue, what they found and what they were doing. They were also super sweet to my toddler. Price for install was on par with what they had quoted. Highly recommend and will use again (hopefully not for a leak).
