• Thermostatic – gives the water with appropriate temperature, until you change the value.
• Sensor faucets – without any valves. You just put your hand to contactless faucet and here’s the water. It’s one of the latest innovations in the field of water supply. The faucet can be programmed to water to be flowed a few second or a bit longer after the putting your hands. Hot/cold water mixes with the help of such devices as sensors. They can be different types, and the most popular is the one with photocell.
