The Deluxe Kitchen Foot Faucet is a hands free way to have automatic control of the hot and cold water independently or you can press both levers for warm water. The Latch feature turns on the water and leaves it on so you can walk away while leaving the water run, this also effectively can switch the system from hand control to foot control with the touch of a lever. The garbage disposal lever does not have the touch sensor and has to be activated from the side for safety and the lever also activates the cold water while the disposal runs. The levers are made of solid stainless steel. The levers move in any direction providing a "Toe Safe" feature, pedals that only move in one direction would pose a trip hazard and can injure bare feet easily. The touch sensor feature activates the hot or cold water with bare feet or thin sock, the touch sensor on the latch has a slight delay to prevent inadvertent activation. The Foot Faucet operates on a regular 120V outlet, but the voltage is converted down to 12VDC eliminating any risk of electric shock.
Using a Foot Faucet can save huge amounts of water because the water can be control with short bursts instead of leaving the faucet run, like when washing dishes by hand or cutting/cleaning vegetables and especially raw meat. Foot control also eliminates a major source cross contamination and food poisoning, the faucet handle.
