Prestige IFS8804D automatic tap is water saving and low maintenance as well as conveniently adjustable thanks to its temperature mixer lever. While its flow reduces water waste in comparison with traditional faucets, the hands free system reduces scum around the unit and prevents cross-contamination between users, which makes this smart tap suitable for domestic use and commercial washrooms. Being quite straightforward to operate, our basin sensor taps also improve accessibility in sanitary premises.

The fine layout will match the neutral finish of modern bathrooms without giving up the durability that brass provides. Furthermore, manufacturer's tests proved that the mechanism should last for at least 5 years. To avoid vandalism, there is a cut off time of 60 seconds. Likewise, as an antiblocking measure, the item comes with special pieces.

Should you need a simple to use and maintain, long-lasting appliance that also limits water waste and reduce bacteria transfer, IFS8804D automatic tap should definitely be an option.

Technical description

This deck-mounted automatic tap needs four 1.5V AA batteries (not furnished in the box), although a mains operated version of the model is available in stock. In order to preserve the chrome plated surface as new, we recommend to wash with non-abrasive solutions using soft cloths.

Please bear in mind that like all tapware the faucet needs its filters cleaning often. We encourage you to disinfect the internal parts from time to time too. Beware that, if other sensors or reflective surfaces are in their detection range, infrared sensors may make mistakes, therefore it is essential to follow the installation manual provided in the package.

Why would (not) you recommend a sensor tap?

We've compared different types of faucets and we've found a lot of advantages of sensor taps, specially for commercial bathrooms and public toilets. You can read them in this blog post, including a few less positive considerations.

You can also check this summary:

  • Advantages
    • Water conservation
    • Energy saving
    • Reducing costs in the bill
    • Easily operated by any user
    • Cut off time to prevent misuse
    • Customisation once for good
    • A cleaner washroom (no dirty handle, less splashes, no sink overflow)
    • No cross-contamination
    • No corrosion (depending on the model)
    • One remote control can adjust infinite taps
  • Neutral features
    • Users will have to learn how to use them (once)
    • Maintenance is required, like any other tap
    • Batteries must be replaced
  • Disadvantages
    • Greater initial investment
    • Remote control to change settings
    • Power cut would entail no operation
    • Infrared sensors can make mistakes
    • Animals activate them as well
    • Some internal parts may favour bacteria
    • More likeliness to replace the whole unit

We advise you to assess what points are more relevant and frequent according to your needs and the location of the tap.

Anything practical to know about infrared sensors?

The proximity sensors in our taps and some soap dispensers use active infrared technology: they detect the infrared radiation that a close object (in their range) reflects back. This means that hands, washroom accessories or just even dirt near them will activate them.

Furthermore, infrared sensors can misinterpret certain situations and open the solenoid valve when they are not suppose to:

  • Mirrors and very reflective finishes (like polished chrome) in front of them will send confusing signals if they are closer than 1.5 metre to the tap. One must be careful for example with the elements of the basin bowl: the spout of wall-mounted sensor taps should be at least 300mm away from the bottom of the sink and not facing a shiny basin plug. Tap sensors can also react if a person is wearing striking garments.
  • Other infrared sensors opposite them also imply unintended triggers.

Therefore, we encourage you to read the installation guidelines the manufacturer provides and accept that accidental unlocks are a (rare) fact.

How often to clean the filters?

This sensor tap has one filter per water supply (included in the package), in order to be placed before the solenoid valve. Furthermore, the tap aerator in the spout will also act as a filter.

Filter before the solenoid valve of a sensor tap

Like in any type of tap, filters must be taken out and washed regularly with running water. In particular, the solenoid valve diaphragm should be checked every 6 months.

There are two situations when the upkeep is essential:

  • After the installation, since a lot of dust is spreaded during the process.
  • After a water cut, this liquid will have dirt.

Is this sensor tap Doc M compliant?

Automatic taps should be easily operated, as Approved Document M requires. Other requirements will be up to the installer, like fixing the basin tap at the right distance from the WC and floor or setting a safe temperature for the users.
