Commonly Asked Questions About Automatic Toilet Flushers
How do automatic toilet flushers work?
Automatic flushers have a built-in infrared sensor that detects when a user is in range to use the toilet or urinal. This range is adjustable, so it is compatible with toilets of different sizes. When the user steps away, the sensor activates the motor to flush the toilet or urinal. Toilet models often have a courtesy flush button on the front of the unit so that a user can manually flush if needed.
How are automatic flush toilets powered?
Automatic toilet flushers are powered by batteries. One set of batteries generally lasts several years. When power is low, an indicator light will alert the user. On some models, an audible low battery alarm can also be set up.
What are the benefits of an automatic toilet flusher?
The main benefit of an automatic toilet flusher is that there is one less surface guests and employees must touch in the restroom, limiting the spread of germs. This can also help limit damage and vandalism.
