Supplyhouse.com is now selling Instant-Off Water Saver Faucets and adapters, an innovative attachment to faucets of all types and sizes that produces various benefits to its users.
Here’s how it works:
It takes about two minutes to install. It has a threaded housing (comes with both male and female) that is attached on one end to the faucet, and on the other end to a push rod, which, when pushed, releases water. When the rod is released the water stops, it is automatic, not a switch. It’s as simple as that. Additionally, Instant-Off offers push rods with an option for continuous water flow, for when you do need to leave the water running to fill a pitcher or a sink for laundry, which works by simply pushing the rod upward into the housing and twisting it.
How is this better than normal faucet handles you may ask?
- It conserves water – by using the push rod, the water is only running when you are using it. You don’t have to worry about remembering to turn it off while you are brushing your teeth, shaving, or washing dishes. This is especially beneficial to people with disabilities and illnesses that limit their mobility, as well as to elderly people and children, and those with memory issues or hearing loss that may accidentally leave the faucet running.
- It saves money – In addition to the environmental benefits of conserving water, there are economic benefits. For example, Pilgrim’s Pride, a producer of chicken, installed Instant-Off faucets in their processing plant in Louisiana. In an audit conducted in the 15 months prior to installation, Pilgrim’s Pride calculated that they used over 36 million gallons per month. After the installation, it went down to roughly 30.6 million gallons per month. The cost of water was $1.62 per thousand gallons, and thus costs were reduced by $9144 per month and an annual savings of $109,729! Even when bringing Instant-Off into the home, families will save money and pay off their investment in 1-4 months.
- It reduces cross-contamination and the spread of germs – Faucet handles are ridden with food and germ particles. The Instant-Off virtually eliminates cross-contamination caused by faucet handles, according to a study conducted by the Center for Bio-Defense. This is a huge benefit for institutions in the food industry and healthcare. Cross-contamination is one of the leading causes of food-borne illness, and is therefore a major safety concern. What makes the Instant-Off preferable to an infrared faucet or foot pedal? It costs about 80% less, and it doesn’t use batteries or electricity. It runs purely on water pressure.
- Bonus: It repairs drippy faucets – If your facet has a drip, or it’s difficult to turn the faucet completely to stop water flow, Instant-Off is a solution to this problem, in addition to all the other benefits. Water will only be released when the rod is pushed.
Instant-Off has two types: the Home Series and the Pro Series. The Home series is designed for home kitchens, bathrooms, laundry, boats, RV’s, and general personal use. The Pro Series offers push rods that are designed for commercial and public use, and some have features that protect against theft, vandalism, and abuse. It is recommended for the food industry, healthcare institutions, commercial buildings, shopping malls, and any other institution.
All Instant-Off faucets have male and female threads. The Instant-Off faucet is shipped with a male 15/16″ adapter installed at the top. When unscrewed, the faucet is found with a female 55/64″ thread. But worry not – Supplyhouse.com also sells Instant-Off adapters for other sizes and types, as well as a no-threads adapter for pipe faucets. The stainless-steel push rods come in four sizes to adapt to different faucet heights and sink depths.
So, get ready to lower your water usage, save money, and be a friend to the environment, both human and natural. Check out all the Instant-Off Products here. And for all of your plumbing, heating, and HVAC needs we have you covered at SupplyHouse.com.
