    Here I am, going at it the other day – swapped out three more faucets for the metering type for all the little kids. I swear, we’ll probably make up the cost of the upgrade in the first month just from water savings!

    I’ve never seen this before, what is a metering type of faucet?

    Kind of like a low flow faucet. It only lets out a certain amount of water per cycle to try to cut back on wasted water or people leaving the taps on.

    @kswiss you got it – it’s a row of six sinks in a daycare I work with.

    @r-ice metering faucets are the kind you push pn and then the mechanism inside the faucet gives you a certain amount of time before it shuts off the water. Most of the ones I’ve used/ worked with are spring actuated. These ones are a newer style from Moen with a levered handle that seems really easy to use. We have a few others on the other side of the building that are like a lot of the public restrooms at parks where it’s just a big knob that you push and that style doesn’t have any mechanical advantage, so it’s a bit more difficult for the littler kids to use.

    @r-ice I really like them – no electricity but still have a kind of automation to them. Definitely saved money and is more hygienic too!
