Now, I know you’ve seen these things before. They’re in practically every public restroom these days, and they can either be a pain or be a convenience. Sometimes, I wonder to myself why people put in this extra stuff at bathrooms. Whenever I wash my hands, I always shut the water off while I lather. So, when I see these things, I wonder “Why?” Then, I see the endless parade of people that just turn on the faucet, let it run while they’re lathering, and then just leave the stupid thing on when they walk away. That’s when it really hits me just how much water we waste.
Enter the touchless, infrared faucet and all of its water-saving glory. Now, I’m not going to try and oversell this thing because frankly I’ve never used one in my home. However, I can go on about the statistics of these things– and they’re GREAT. Not only are they a lot more convenient to use than traditional faucets, but the manufacturer says that they cut down on water consumption by 70%. That’s nothing to shake a stick at. This is something that should really be taken seriously by readers in places like Utah and Arizona. Water bills in places like this are extravagantly expensive, making a device like this the perfect solution to a major source of financial strain on your home.
No matter what, we can all do better. However, it’s great when you can find something that can “do better” for you. This is one of those times when you can save money while saving the environment, and that is always an awesome plus to have with any purchase.
