Save water with sensor faucets

Today, our planet’s natural resources are increasingly scarce and drinking water is no exception. Thus, there are more and more options for sustainable products, that are capable of helping to alleviate this serious problem, such as faucets with sensors.

Saving water means knowing how to use this limited resource in a smart way and take care of it properly. In this way it is possible to preserve our planet for future generations.

Protecting our ecosystems from damage is essential because water is part of our daily lives, we need water for drinking, bathing, cooking, washing and other activities.

With the faucets with sensors you can help the planet in this arduous task.

These faucets manage to reduce water consumption compared to normal faucets. We know that this type of faucet is more used in public places with a greater flow of people, but nothing prevents these from also being installed in your home, such as in your bathroom or kitchen.

Taps with automatic sensors

Faucets with sensors are one of the best solutions when it comes to saving water and trying to be more sustainable and that is why you find many public spaces such as malls, hotels and restaurants with this equipment.
The faucets with sensors are smart and have a simple and comfortable operation. When someone approaches an object or hand, the optical sensor reads what is happening and sends a signal that releases the water.
This leads to water only flowing when the sensor reads an object, when the sensor stops reading it,  the water stops immediately. In this way, it is possible to save water and avoid exaggeration.

In summary, it seems to be something very simple, but it can help a lot in saving water, so it is important to make these small gestures to save water.

Are the taps with sensors worth it?

Are the taps with sensors worth it? More than ever, investing in more sustainable and cost-effective solutions is the investment we should all make.

Also, have you ever wondered what it would be like if your customers could wash their hands, without worrying about where the liquid soap is, or the hand dryer?

Faucets with automatic sensors in addition to saving water also help reduce the waste of natural resources. Therefore, green innovation is important for us to create more sustainable alternatives. Nowadays, there is a need to do what is possible to preserve our planet, so these taps are a step to help with the problem.

The answer is simple, don’t you think?

 

Why taps with sensors?

Faucets with sensors use the same basic parts as a conventional faucet and exist with a wide variety of colors and design. Like conventional faucets, they also feature an internal cable with a stream of water. And as you might expect, it also has an electronic component that allows it to operate.

Thus, these faucets promote a high comfort while washing your hands. First of all your customer does not need to touch the surface of the faucet because it is enough to run your hand on the sensor that it reads immediately that there is movement. In this way, it also helps in hygiene and also helps the health of its customers, avoiding contamination and possible diseases.

As has been said before, with the use of taps with sensors you can save water. The fact that it is short time on, thanks to the sensor it has, allows the faucet to just pour water while the sensor reads something, such as the hands. Thus, as soon as we remove our hands, the flow of water stops immediately and avoids exaggeration.

In addition, its minimalist design allows the faucet to meet the decoration of the bathrooms, regardless of the type of space and a touch of elegance.

First impressions of the Aquat3 exhibition

 Last September 19, one of the AQUA T3 equipment, the Basic Box, was one of the novelties of the exhibition that took place in the Minipreço of  Vila Nova de Famalicão.

The response to this new equipment was quite positive, aroused the curiosity of hypermarket customers and regarding the compliments … We’ll be right there.

First of all, we would like to mention the hospitality of the Minipreço team, always very committed to ensuring all the means for a better experience of their customers when using the AQUA T3 system. 

The AQUA T3 team was pleased with the presentation of the BasicBox, the most affordable equipment of the brand, with automatic outlets for water, liquid soap and disinfectant.

According to the CEO, Ana Paula Marques, “users loved the experience of being able to sanitize their hands in a very simple and effective way” also referring to the security that it transmits in times of Covid-19, “the possibility of doing so without any kind of touch es on surfaces was what caught the most attention in people“.

Other of the most frequent opinions of users about the equipment were Innovation and Design. The vast majority of people had never used something so practical and comfortable and that was both compact and simple to install, referring mainly to the automatisms of the system, equipped with sensors that detect the presence of hands making the chosen functionality act in this way.

Overall, the feedback was very positive, having exceeded the expectations of the AQUA T3 team. Ana Rocha, one of the promoters of the exhibition said that “we call attention to something that can be increasingly decisive nowadays” since the vast majority of people believe that hand washing has been forgotten to the detriment of disinfectants.

According to her, one of the users also said that “nothing replaces the washing of our hands, despite the importance of disinfectants” and that “the idea of this system is quite innovative and gives us a lot of security the implementation of these equipment in places like this”.

The brand will continue to provide these types of events in order to promote its equipment with main focus in public places with great flow of people.

How do sensor taps work?

Quite possibly, you stopped to think about how sensor faucets work and why many commercial establishments are adopting for this option and not for conventional faucets.

Faucet with sensors Vs conventional faucet

Although there seem to be many differences between this type of faucets, the truth is that there are also many similarities.

Sensor faucets use the same parts as a conventional faucet, you can find various varieties of colors, styles and materials. Like a conventional faucet, sensor faucets include a built-in tube connected to a water network.

Moreover, they also have an electrical circuit that allows the operation of the equipment.

But what set them apart anyway?
Let’s find out together!

 

Electronic component

For the sensor faucet to work, it needs an electrovalve that controls the water outlet. When the piston is still, it automatically blocks the water path when the load is applied, the solenoid valve engages back into the piston causing the water to flow. 

 

How does the sensor work?

Sensor faucets use recent technology and are therefore more efficient, however, sensor operation is simple. The solenoid valve is connected to an electronic sensor, which sends a signal in order to apply a change that engages the solenoid.
In the case of AquaT3 taps the sensor works infrared, i.e. reads the presence of the hands, when there is a proximity. When there is the removal of obstacles, in this case the hands, the sensor causes a register to disengage the solenoid, thus allowing the piston to block the flow of water again.

 

How does the power source work?

The power source allows the faucet sensor to turn on and to engage the solenoid while using the faucet.
Although there are two ways to get the power, AquaT3 sensor faucets use a transformer, which uses the energy from the space where it is installed.
It is in this detail that sensor faucets become more efficient than conventional faucets. The solenoid doesn’t use energy when it’s not engaged, so it saves more with sensor taps. When there is little load to trigger the solenoid the piston will continue in the closed position, avoiding the risk of water waste. For example, if there is an electricity failure you do not have to worry about wasting water, as the tap will remain closed even if it is disconnected from the mains.

 

Conclusion

Sensor faucets are easy to operate, are more efficient than the rest and allow their use to be more comfortable.
