Trending Faucets based on Technology & Functionality
Bathroom faucets are plumbing fixtures that are available in varied styles, shapes, and finishes to satisfy your design needs. However, you would like to contemplate vital factors, such as the dimensions and type of washbasin and additionally check the faucet’s compatibility with the washbasin or tabletop and with the plumbing lines when selecting one. If you’re going to purchase a new faucet, whether or not for existing sink or a replacement one, here is a guide that may assist you to come to a decision which kind to go for.
1. SENSOR FAUCETS
Touchless faucets seem like a technological miracle as you place your hand under the spout and water starts flowing like magic. Touchless faucets, also known as automatic faucets or sensor faucets, have four key components: sensor, solenoid-controlled valve, power source, and spout.PROS:
- One of the greater benefits of sensor faucets is that they turn off automatically.
- Beyond that obvious benefit of water conservation, these automatic faucets with preset time-outs are designed to save building owners from overflow water damage.
- Hands-free and easy to operate.
- Helps to stop the spread of germs and bacteria.
- Prevents water overflow with automatic turn off.
- Better efficiency as they save on water usage.
- Water temperatures can be preset to help prevent a scalding injury.
2. SOLAR FAUCETS
People are familiar with motion-sensing faucets that turn on when people move their hands under them, and automatically turn themselves off, so they don’t have to handle the germy handles. But this design has been taken much further by the engineers to save water as well as energy. A solar powered faucet? Yes. Apparently, this faucet works with ambient light much like a solar calculator. Solar panels embedded in the crown draw power from artificial and natural light sources.PROS:
- This new faucet design saves energy while saving water.
- It uses the bathroom lights to charge itself.
- Long lasting.
- They are an excellent choice to passively harvest power and extend battery life.
3. LCD + SOLAR FAUCETS
The LCD display instructs users on how to perform a CDC-compliant hand wash. This faucet saves energy along with water as a solar panel is embedded in it. This could be a great option if you are concerned about energy saving and aesthetics.
Following are five spray types which provide options to adjust the flow rate, look and feel of the water.
1. MULTI LAMINAR SPRAY
Multi-laminar spray offers a special washing experience. Numerous little nozzles join forces to produce an extensive, abundant and pleasantly effervescent stream of water – a shower sensation for your hands.
2. FULL STREAM AERATED
Aerators introduce air into the water stream to produce a larger and whiter stream that is soft to the touch and non-splashing. Aerators are the usual choice for residential faucet applications.
3. FULL STREAM LAMINAR
Laminar stream straighteners produce a non-aerated water stream. Ideal for high-flow applications or health care facilities (no mix of water/air). Full stream laminar spout-end devices deliver a crystal-clear and non-splashing stream.
4. SPRAY STREAM
When the flow rate is too low to produce an aerated or laminar stream, a spray device is used to produce a miniature shower pattern to provide full coverage of the hands during washing.
Sprays are recommended for use in public lavatories.
5. MIKADO STREAM (DESIGN)
The unique Mikado stream turns the water into an eye-catcher when washing your hands.
6. WATERFALL STREAM
The peculiar waterfall stream of the Axor
