It’s known that a touchless faucet uses a sensor to detect when water is needed, and turns the water on and off automatically. No touch is needed, from any part of your body. Some may ask are touch sensor faucets worth it? The answer is definitely YES. There aren’t many cons to a touch faucet. Some homeowners do not consider them because they cost much more than traditional basin or sink faucets. However, an automatic touchfree sensor faucet can save you money over time by reducing water usage since they have automatic faucet shut-off. When you want water on-demand with no mess, touchless faucets are the ideal choice. Some people prefer a touch faucet because it offers more control to the user. It is less likely to accidentally turn the faucet on or off when you have to physically touch as opposed to make a motion in front of it.
You may ask do infrared taps need electricity? Electricity is not a must for infrared water taps because the taps work either by batteries or electricity. Of course, if you have both batteries and electricity, that would be perfect since the electricity will automatically switch on to supply power if the batteries run out. The sensor tap system must have power, whether battery or a transformer (electricity). With electricity supply, the sensor can detect an object, like a hand opposite the basin tap. The solenoid valve opens when an obstruction is perceived. This way, water flows through the pipe and spout.
