Last week I showed you my new kitchen floor. Well, my kitchen also now has a new faucet! The fabulous people at Moen asked me to try out their new Arbor kitchen faucet with MotionSense. Test out a hands-free faucet? You bet!
To put it In a nutshell, Arbor with MotionSense is an amazing new system that allows you to operate the faucet without physical contact – literally eliminating steps and inconvenient messes that still happen with those faucets that you have to touch to turn on.
I decided to install the system myself. I don’t consider myself adept at plumbing so I’m not going to take you through the process. I will say the hardest part was removing the old faucet.
Installing the new one was super simple. I couldn’t believe it. The only real challenge was that I turned the water off to my whole house and had no way to wash my hands until the job was complete.
Anyway, that’s not the point. I completed the process flawlessly, if I do say so myself. The best part? No leaks!
Now, more about the faucet. It is freaking amazing! There are a couple sensors in it. The first, which is on top, is called the wave sensor. You just wave your hand across the top and the faucet turns on. Wave your hand across it again, and it turns off.
The second sensor, the ready sensor, is located in the bottom front of the faucet. This one is my favorite.
If you put your hands, a drinking glass, or a pan in front of the faucet, it automatically senses your presence. When you are finished and move away from the sensor, the faucet automatically turns off. Genius!
The Arbor with MotionSense is more convenient than standard faucets because it senses how the user wants the faucet to work and responds accordingly.
There is also a traditional handle that allows you to adjust the water like a standard faucet.
For the hands-free option, the system allows you to set the water to whatever temperature you want. Mine is set right in the middle, room temperature. There is also a pull-down sprayer. This can be adjusted to a stream or spray. Love that!
Needless to say, I am enthralled with the Arbor with MotionSense. I also feel pretty cool when guests come over and I can show them how awesome the faucet is. And of course, I love the fact that since I’m not touching the faucet or lever constantly, it stays significantly cleaner and “less germy.” A real bonus in my busy kitchen.
So what do you think? How would the Arbor with MotionSense simplify your life?
