This model is fuss-free and allows you to adjust the height of water and temperature with a single motion. These faucets show very impressive in every interior. In the interior of the bathroom you can use a special built-in lever faucet which is mounted directly in the bath-tub carcass (or in the wall in front of the bath-tub). In the kitchen, lever faucets are very convenient during cooking when you keep something in your hands or they are dirty.

The main advantage of this faucet is hygiene: to turn on the water, you should put your hand to the faucet spout. It’s a hot topic for public establishments and allows you to avoid getting germs on yourskin  turning off the tap after washing. The kitchen sensor faucets are also very convenient, because they do not require unnecessary movements with already busy hands.
