SENSOR TAP WATER CONSERVATION CHARTS
Facts and Charts on Sensor taps and Manual taps
Cross Contamination | Hygiene | Maintenance
The level of cross contamination when using a manual tap is significantly higher than sensor tap.
With sensor taps, the user does not need to touch the tap to get water. Water is dispensed automatically using infrared sensor activation.
Long-term Cost | Water Saving | Energy Saving
Taking water conservation into consideration which in turn saves money on water bills, sensor activated taps saves more money long term.
With sensor tap, less water is wasted and less water for processing plants to process. The level of energy saved is usually not apparent at short-term, but adds up at long-term basis.
Hand Washing | Tooth Brushing | Dish-washing
Water wasted when washing hands is significantly higher where a manual tap is used. With automatic taps, water is dispensed exactly when needed and shuts off automatically when hands are removed or outside the infrared sensing zone.
Energy Conservation | Water Conservation | Manufacturing Process
In terms of environmental impact, manual taps are discarded in higher percentage than sensor automatic taps. With higher rate, more energy or resources are needed to dispose or recycle them. With most places using normal or conventional taps, the energy cost is considerably higher. Once sensor taps market penetration begins to increase, the graph above will start to change.
