What Are the Worst Bathroom Faucets to use?

In public sanitary facilities with touch free faucets, one doesn’t need to get filthy again reusing a similar knob or handle and there won’t be cross-contamination between different users through the faucet. Regardless of that, a few providers have expendable spouts for sensor taps, intended for social insurance situations that go for guaranteeing cleanliness.Here is a breakdown on Sensor Faucets performance:

Durability and ease of use of Sensor Faucets In Public Rest

Manual Faucets in public restrooms is, quite honestly, the worst choice when it comes to sanitary. Cross contamination using manual faucets while washing hands is found to be very high.


  • It looks great and feels comfortable, but look and feel can be achieved in wood-look materials that are more resistant to moisture damage
  • Disadvantages:

  • Almost no protection against moisture is built into the composition of its boards
  • The tiniest amount of moisture can easily seep into the core of solid hardwood planks and cause rot over time
  • If installed, it must be done professionally to make sure there are zero gaps for moisture to seep into, and also have seams between boards flooded with a protective coating that guards against moisture

Commercial Sensor Faucets Concepts

Overall touchless automatic sensor faucets are considered an investment in public restrooms such as malls, offices, restaurants and other institutional establishments where the washroom is a shared space. Above everything else, the hands-free faucet solution offers security and peace of mind from the threat of germ transmission.

    Main Concepts:

  • Water Conservation: The first difference between traditional faucets and sensor faucets would be the water output. Sensor taps would pour 10L to 15L per minute, while the other type would not use more than 6L. This is due to the design of sensor faucets which is purposed to have a low flow rate, an aerator in the spout and system or materials that prevent leakage, it also has a solenoid valve that would be closed by default. A dripping faucet would then waste between 300 ml and 1L per hour.
  • If installed in the bathroom, we strongly recommend hiring a professional installer as the seams between planks have to be as tight as possible and the floors then have to be thoroughly sealed
  • Over time moisture that permeates the engineered floor boards will cause them to warp and buckle

The Different Styles and Finishes of Sensor Faucets
