The Best Water-Saving Faucets for Your Home

Installing water-efficient faucets in your home can reduce water consumption by 20%. If you’re ready to install water-efficient faucets, it can be difficult to decide which faucet is right for you. At Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Pittsburgh, we always stay updated on the plumbing fixtures that can help you conserve water and save money. In this article, we will outline some of the best water-efficient faucets you can install in your home to lower water consumption.

Hands-Free Faucet

Also known as touchless faucets, hands-free faucets use presence sensors at the tip of the faucet spout to turn the water on or off.

When you move your hand directly in front of the sensor or place an item under the spout, the presence sensor sends a signal to the solenoid valve, turning the water on or off.

Here are reasons to install hands-free faucets in your home.

  • Save water: Hands-free faucets drastically reduce water usage when compared to traditional faucets because they only run when you need them to.
  • Improve hygiene: Since you don’t need to touch these faucets, they do not get as visibly dirty as traditional faucets.
  • Germ prevention: Regular faucets can be a breeding ground for germs if you don’t clean them often. With touchless faucets, you don’t need to touch the faucet to turn the water on or off, and this helps to reduce the risk of spreading germs.

Pull-Down Faucet

A pull-down faucet features a spray head that can extend down into the sink and pull the hose back in when you let go of it.

The pull-down functionality gives you more precision when performing cleaning tasks, accommodates a large stack of dishes, and gives you more versatility than regular faucets.

Pull-down faucets not only allow for greater control, but they also stand out in a space thanks to their modern, sleek style.

Pull-Out Faucet

Pull-out faucets come with a faucet head or sprayer that can be pulled directly out of the faucet body. These faucets use a very simple system to retract back in when you let go of them.

Some of the advantages of pull-down faucets include:

  • Much less splashback than pull down faucets
  • Longer hose for better maneuverability
  • Work great in small sinks

Faucets with Low-Flow Aerators

Low-flow aerators work by mixing air into the flow to reduce the flow to 1.5 gallons per minute or less. These fixtures are installed at the mouth of the faucet. These aerators can be installed in kitchen faucets, showerheads, bathroom spouts, utility sinks, garden hoses, and other faucets. If you’re unable to decide which faucets are best suited for your home, make sure you consult with a professional plumber.
