We've had these for three years now. I thought I should get around to reviewing them so people know how they hold up. They have worked out very well for us. We have them in three bathrooms in our house. We were in a drought when we got them and were doing everything we could think of to conserve water. Our then 7-year old son liked to goof around in the sink and leave the water running. My husband did say they were challenging to install but he also says it was worth it. The batteries have lasted about a year in each one. Changing them is easy because the compartment just slips out without taking the whole assembly off. Lastly, you can bypass the auto feature if you need the water to stay on. We will buy these again when we need to.
Water is a big issue in southern AZ and I had been thinking of replacing all my faucets with automatic faucets. Automatic faucets are expensive and I am old enough that I no longer enjoy laying on my back underneath sinks to do plumbing. Somewhere along the way, I came across the iTouchless EZ Faucet, which were available from Overstock at a very good price. So, I ordered one to see if the iTouchless EZ Faucet would perform as advertised. I'm happy to say that it did. As a result, I ordered and installed four more. I am very pleased. The manufacturer says that the iTouchless EZ Faucet reduces water consumption by 50% to 70% and I believe it. Figure fifteen minutes for installation. One caution. There is a 50/50 chance that you will have a small drip at the connection point after installation. Don't worry about it, in a day or two it will stop.
This is a great idea, the best application seems to be in a sink just for handwashing, does not easily allow for all functions needed for the main kitchen sink. I found that the water temp had to be set at cold. When I tried to set the water at a warm setting it caused the hot water in other areas of the house to be altered. Often only cold water only was coming from the hot taps in other areas of the house. So... for hands free hand washing in cold water, not at the main kitchen sink , it is great. I will use it at my bar sink.
This is a handy little item that has stopped the splashing by the on/off handles. No need to drip all over the place and make a mess. Also, it shuts off immediately whenever you are not using it so I can see a real potential for great water savings. May have to get a couple for the kids too!
