If you own a touchless faucet, then you are in need of knowing how to set the temperature control on it. It’s very easy to use and easy to adjust depending on your needs. After all, the most important part about a faucet is that it should be convenient to use and achieve the right temperature.
How to adjust the temperature on a touchless faucet?
In addition, we should take a closer look at this subject since there are some small differences between kitchen and bathroom faucets and also from one brand to another. Most touchless kitchen faucets have the same principle for adjusting water temperature, but bathroom faucets have some differences.
Adjusting the temperature of a touchless kitchen faucet
The handle controls the water temperature and pressure in touchless kitchen faucets. If you want hot water, you set the handle in the back. If you want cold water, you set it forward. You can adjust the water pressure by pulling or pushing the handle toward the faucet. Some of them have a led light indicator that changes from blue to red as your faucet’s water changes temperature. A very useful feature to prevent scalding.
Some of them have a dial underneath the sink
In some older models or budget ones, the mixing temperature is controlled by the electronic control valve underneath the sink. A small knob adjusts the water temperature down there. If you have a touchless kitchen faucet with this feature, you can still change the temperature by turning it clockwise or counterclockwise until it feels right to you.
