Electronic taps

28 May 2018 / By: rmmcia

Also known as sensor tap, the electronic tap is characterized by the water flow is activated just for approximation, thanks to an infrared sensor placed in its frontal side.

Let’s indicate a few of its main advantages:

low consumption: water flow control allows saving cost and benefits the environment

security: especially designed for public spaces, but also for private use, with no risk of leaving it opened and also avoiding bacteria propagation

comfort: as it is activated with no touch, is kept clean, and it is also of easy use for disabled people, kids and even pets!

Installation: except the wall mounted tap which is requiring some works, its installation is simpler than expected, it can be installed as a conventional tap, only to be taken into account the small box containing the electrovalve of sensor activation. The electrovalve is connected to power, but it is including 4 standard batteries in case you do not have an electrical conection point; they can be added also for granting its performance even if there’s a blackout. This electrovalve is normally placed under the washbasin, hidden by the washbasin furniture.

In any case and even if simply to install, from rmmcia we always recommend to leave plumbing installation in a professional’s hand.

As per the taps range, at rmmcia we offer 6 different options depending different variables such as design, place and temperature:

- one water (natural temperature)/ two waters (pre regulator of cold-hot water)
- wall mounted/ traditional
- squared design/ rounded design

Although price of this sort of taps is a bit higher than conventional taps, investment is worthy as you save in water consumption in a short length of time. We have calculated it, and in the medium term the saving is important, apart from the good you do to the environment with no water waste. Some interesting data:

- As per a Spanish governmental report, 73% of water consumption (houses without garden) is produced in the bathroom, 18% at the hand basin.
- Water consumption in Spain in 2014 was of average 132 litres per inhabitant/a day! (source: national statistics institute INE).
