Maintenance & Cleaning
Clean The Faucet

DO NOT use steel wool or cleansing agents containing alcohol, acid, abrasives, or the like. Use of any prohibited cleaning or maintenance products or substances could damage the surface of the sensor unit. For surface cleaning of the faucet use ONLY soap and water, then wipe dry with clean cloth or towel. When cleaning bathroom tile, the unit should be protected from any splattering of harsh cleansers.


Clean The Sensors

Turn OFF tap to prevent activation. Wipe sensors using a soft cloth and non-abrasive cleaner, ensuring sensor is clear from foreign objects, finger prints, grease and water marks.


Clean & Check For Blockages

Turn OFF water supply, remove connections and filters from solenoid valve. Wash components under running water and reconnect ensuring there are no water leaks.
