Water Conservation through Sensor Faucets

Pros and Cons of Sensor Faucets
- Most faucets are battery operated
- Cost of batteries could get costly
- Hard wire products are harder and more expensive to install
Our main goal is to convince commercial buildings and Universities to switch from traditional faucets to sensor faucets. Since water is an essential resource and clean water is a limited resource, our message is trying to educate people in ways to conserve water for future generations.
Hopefully from our presentation our audience will see a great benefit in sensor faucets and will be convinced to change from traditional faucets to sensor faucets. Sensor faucets can help cut down on costs, improve water conservation, and cut back on the spread of germs. Furthermore, our presentation has displayed the benefits of using sensor faucets compared to traditional faucets. If everyone can find a way to pitch in, at UMASS and other large commercial businesses by making the switch from traditional to sensor faucets, we can all make a huge difference in conserving this limited and life sustaining resource.
Most major brands carry various models of sensor faucets including Moen, Sloan, Delta, Zern, and Kohler
As with most products, there is an enormous range of price and quality
Prices range from around $100-$1000+
Features include cycle length settings, sensor range, and response time
Comes in large variety of designs and finishes similar to traditional faucets
No additional technical installation necessary to replace existing traditional faucets
Exception in the event of hard wire installation
Powered by standard, readily available AA Batteries, which are easily accessed and replaced
Installing Sensor Faucets
- Sensor Faucets were first introduced in the 1950's
- Either hard wired into your home or battery powered
- The laser senors your hand in front of the faucet to turn the flow of water on

- Sensor faucets save an average of 50% of water compared to traditional faucets

- Sensor faucets are 10% better at saving energy then your the traditional faucet found in an average home
Saving & Costs
-This graph reassures that the water saving capacity, and energy conservation of sensor water faucets is much higher and more productive then the average traditional faucet

Creating Awareness
With sensor water faucet
If your company is concerned about the environment and wants to find ways to save it or is trying to save money but doesn’t know what can be cut out of their budget. Looking at the water bill is a good place to start. Water is one of the most commonly wasted natural resources in the world. Installing sensor water faucets will limit your water usage, saving the environment and money. Telling friends, family, and local business about how much water would be saved by switching over to sensor water faucets is a good way to get your community aware of the problem.
