Advice for automatic/motion sensor faucets?
I'm hoping to replace an existing bathroom faucet with a "hands-free" model that senses motion. I'm getting this for my husband's dental office in their "toothbrushing station." I figure it would be easier for kids to have an automatic faucet.
Does anyone have experience with these? I see in the Kitchen forum that some like Delta Touch faucets, but that still requires you to physically touch the faucet. Unless I put up a sign, I could see lots of kids getting confused re: the lack of handles and how one needs to touch it to turn it on.
I also assumed we need to avoid a battery-operated model as we could have 50-60 patients/day using the faucet, unless the battery replacement is really easy to do. Yet I found a Sloan model (SF-2200 with plug-in adapter/2250 with batteries) and the battery-operated version says the batteries will last 2 years if used 8,000 cycles/month. Does cycles mean each use? If so, I don't think there would be 8,000 uses/month.
Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated! Please let me know if this is the wrong forum, too.
