The myth: Touchless faucets are difficult to install

 The facts:

  • Touchless faucets can be installed even faster and easier than a traditional single-lever mixer faucet.
  • An electrical connection is usually not required, and touchless faucets utilise the same infrastructure, washbasin configurations and fixing parts as traditional single-lever faucets ­– so there’s no need for added holes or special adaptors.
  • Plus, all touchless faucet models are equipped with flexible pipes, making it easier to install than copper pipes, especially when space under the sink is limited or tight.

 

The myth: Battery life is short requiring frequent battery changes

 The facts:

  • SMART faucets require lithium batteries which last 3 to 5 years.
  • A blinking red light on Oras touchless faucets lets your customer know when it’s time for a battery change, which they can easily do in minutes.
  • The Oras App, which comes with our touchless faucets, also displays battery life status.

 

The myth: Touchless faucets are only for public places

 The facts:

  • As more and more people experience SMART faucets in schools, day-cares and offices, they become inspired to install them in their homes. We see the demand in private homes growing exponentially.
