In this review article I will touch again high technology related to plumbing, namely mixers. Today, dear readers, I want to tell you about Touchless. Nowadays they are becoming popular for many reasons and that we will examine below, they are placed not only in public places, but also in the flats. The principle of non-contact mixer is simple, as long as you wash your hands the water flows once they are put away, the water stops flowing. Because in our time the issue of water saving is relevant, I note that this mixer for at least 2-fold decrease water consumption when washing and hand washing. This is achieved by not having to have nothing to twist and pull the mixer to turn on or turn off the water.
Contactless mixers are made of different designs, as well as usual for us faucets. That's just his body has no valves and levers and buttons and a neat unobtrusive lever to set the necessary parameters, which are stored in memory (eg, water temperature). Often these faucets have a solid body on which no, no buttons, no levers to set it up, all the necessary parameters are set using the remote control. With these buttons or the remote control adjustable range of motion sensor, which includes water, usually from one to thirty centimeters. Also use them to set the timing and shut-off, which ranges from one to six seconds, that is, at the expiration of this time, if the sensor will not fix the movement in its range, it will turn off the water and vice versa.
Probably the most important advantage of non-contact mixer is hygienic, as hand washing before and after to turn it on or off has nothing to do not touch. Therefore, they often can be found in the sinks of public institutions and in different settings. You can also note that the water temperature and pressure can be set once and will not tormented with its setting. And as I said earlier: a mixer for at least two times will reduce water consumption when washing and hand washing.
Lows in non-contact mixer also available. Just want to note that the apartment would be reasonable to put it on the sink in the bathroom sink in the toilet and bidet in, as, for example, in the kitchen and bathroom so the mixer will be inconvenient. It's awkward because if we have to soak the dishes, or type in a tub of water, the motion sensor will always have to be turned off and if it needs to be permanently disabled, what's the point to pay for it. Also in the kitchen and the bathroom is often necessary to change the water temperature. Another drawback is its battery, which needs to be changed about once every 2-4 years.
