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 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!!

Zeek recently replaced my water heater. I called them in the morning and they were there within a few hours and had completed the work by early afternoon. Everyone was professional, courteous, and helpful.

Everyone at Zeek Plumbing was so kind and helpful. My heated driveway had a broken pipe but Steve, Rich, and the whole team went above and beyond to repair this as quickly as possible. I highly recommend their business for any plumbing issues you may have.

I’m a new homeowner and didn’t know what to expect when I had Zeek over to help me with a problem I had with a new washing machine connection when I moved in. Not only did they help with the connection, they spent time to explain my heating system to me. Now, two months later they have been to my home for two other problems that came about. While I wasn’t excited about having to spend money, they kept my budget in mind and were more than fair. I have nothing to but good things to say about their work, the people in their office and the people that have visited my home. I recommend them highly.

Steve and his team are the best of the best. He was so responsive and so caring!!!! Within a very short amount of time he sent us 2 of his team members (Rich and Oliver) who were outstanding. Extremely competent, knowledgeable, smart, fast, polite, and caring. We recently moved into the area and are so blessed to have found them. Highly recommend them!!!

The gentlemen from Zeek Plumbing were very professional and thorough in trying to determine the source of our problem. They had all the necessary parts with them to fix the problem and left everything very tidy after they finished the repair.
