The Importance of a Good Faucet During Quarantine

Washing your hands has always been at the top of the list for good hygiene practices, but now more people than ever are paying attention to hand-washing to prevent the spread of COVID-19. In addition to soap and water, you can also benefit from having a faucet with good water pressure in your home and perhaps even a hands-free faucet.

This article covers the importance of having a good faucet during quarantine and how the right faucet can help you curb the spread of disease.

Faucet Pressure and Flow

With the constant washing of hands necessary during this time of the coronavirus quarantine, you need home faucets with good water pressure and water flow. This is true for kitchen faucets, bathroom faucets, and utility room faucets. Faucet pressure refers to the rate at which water comes out of the fixture, while faucet flow is how steadily water streams out into the basin.

How to Improve Faucet Water Pressure

To improve water pressure coming from the faucets in your home, you may need to clean the aerator, rinse out the filter, or flush the water supply line. However, adjusting the pressure may be as simple as turning the shut-off valve to a more optimal position. Something could be blocking the pipe that leads to the faucet, such as debris or build-up that needs to be removed for the faucet to work properly.

Low pressure is more common of a problem than high pressure in homes, and it’s even more problematic these days because you need a reliable flow of water to keep your hands clean and sanitary. Therefore, now is a good time to upgrade old, malfunctioning faucets to newer, advanced ones that amplify water pressure.

Benefits of a Delta Voice Faucet

Since studies show that coronavirus can linger for at least several days on surfaces, such as stainless steel, this is also a good time to upgrade to a Delta voice faucet or other type of automated faucet that you don’t need to touch to access water. Hands-free faucets are activated by motion sensors or your voice to provide safe and clean water for hand-washing and also help you conserve water usage in your home.

Faucet Maintenance Tips

Here are some faucet maintenance tips to keep your new faucet in great working condition:

  • Clean faucets with a mild cleaners and damp cloth daily
  • Remove hard water mineral deposits when they appear
  • Clean the aerator to prevent premature replacement
  • Buy a basic faucet repair kit at a hardware store for minor DIY repairs
