Ecopedal Is the Hygienic Way to Use the Faucet

The average kitchen faucet is home to 13,227 bacteria. That’s a lot of ways to get sick. If you would prefer to stop the spread of germs, ecopedal offers a more hygienic way to use the faucet. Using this foot pedal, you never need to touch the handle again.

– Slim foot pedal can be installed under any sink

– Simply step on the pedal to open the faucet, with 2 different flow settings

– Instant on/off design prevents water wastage

The More Hygienic Way

We have learned that the kitchen faucet is pretty dirty. But what about the bathroom? Which surface harbors the most germs? Nope, not the toilet handle or even the seat. Once again, the wash basin is where all the nasties lurk.

ecopedal makes every sink in your home much more hygienic. The pedal can be installed in around 30 minutes, and it provides full, hands-free control.

For a quick hand wash, you step on the right-hand side of the pedal. This keeps the water flowing while you apply pressure. The instant you remove your foot, the water stops.

Unlike motion sensor faucets, this system wastes no water whatsoever. In fact, the folks behind ecopedal reckon it could save 52 gallons a day in a regular US family home. That means smaller bills and a better conscience.

For washing food or removing dirt, you just tap the left-hand side of ecopedal to start a constant stream. Tapping it again shuts off the water. To prevent your pets causing havoc, the pedal even has an adjustable shut-off timer.

In addition to better hygiene, ecopedal just makes it easier to use your faucet. New Moms can keep hold of baby while using the sink, and kids can reach to get themselves a glass of water.

“Stop turning water on with traditional faucet handles that easily spread germs and bacteria…Simply take a step to turn water on and off at your kitchen or bathroom sink“ – ecopedal on Kickstarter

What We ❤️

Hands-free faucets that actually work. Manic hand-waving in front of the motion sensor gets old.
