Automatic Soap Dispenser

Soap dispensers are generally divided into two categories. There’s the manual soap dispenser and there’s the automatic soap dispenser. The manual soap dispensers are those that you need to apply pressure on. These are those that you have to pump or touch in order for the soap to be released. On the other hand, there is the automatic soap dispenser. This kind of dispenser is touch-free. What does that mean? The automatic soap dispenser has sensors to know when to release soap. So if you put your hand under the nozzle, it will drop some soap into your hands.

Now the common characteristic of both soap dispensers is that both can be mounted. Both can either be surface mounted, recess mounted or simply positioned on the countertop. Another common thing about the two is that they both come in various reservoir styles. Some come in cartridges while some in tanks or urns. Of course, whatever style or mount they have, they all serve the same purpose and that is to dispense soap. So how does the automatic soap dispenser step up to the usual manual dispenser?

The toilet or bathroom is one of the places where you can find all sorts of bacteria, viruses, and germs. Public restrooms make use of soap dispensers too. So when you see manual soap dispensers in public restrooms, you’re sure to find every sort of germ on it. That’s when the automatic soap dispenser comes in. Avoiding the action of pressing the pump makes it safer and cleaner for you to wash your hands in a public restroom. Same goes with the automatic paper towel dispensers. Good thing that a lot of public restrooms are now changing to automatic dispensers to promote a healthy and clean environment for all of us. Maybe you should too.
