Simple, straightforward and low shipping rates for these hydro generators for electronic faucets.
Q. "Will this hydro-generator work with faucets besides the T&S ChekPoint™ faucet?"
A. The EC-Hyrodgen kit is designed specifically to work with the T&S ChekPoint™ faucets.
Q. "I already have a T&S Chekpoint™ faucet installed. How hard is this kit to install?"
A. The EC-Hyrodgen kit it fairly simple to install. You simply turn off your water supply and disconnect the water line attached to your faucet. Then connect the EC-Hydrogen unit to the faucet using the included swivel coupling, then connect the water line to the EC-Hydrogen unit. Then plug in the power cord from the EC-Hydrogen unit to the faucet and the installation is complete.
Q. "Does the hydro generator waste water?"
A. No the hydro generator does not waste water as it only charges itself with the water that you use to wash your hands or any other time you or anyone activates the faucet.
Q. "How long will the EC-Hydrogen stay in standby mode before it's stored power is depleted?"
A. The hydro generator's internal battery will hold a charge for approximately for 6 months to 1 year.
Q. "What happens if the hydro generator does not have enough power to open the valve on my electronic faucet? Will I still be able to use my faucet?"
A. Yes you will still be able to use your faucet if the hydro generator's internal battery has no power. In the event that the hydro generator does not have enough power to open the valve you still have a convenient battery backup that is powered by 4 "AA" batteries (batteries not included).
Q. "Are the 4 external 'AA' backup batteries included? Do they need to be rechargeable batteries?"
A. The 4 "AA" batteries are not included with the hydro generator, but the batteries are very common and can be purchased locally from most stores. Since the hydro generator does not charge these batteries, they should be standard AA non-rechargeable batteries.
Q. "Where are the external batteries mounted?"
A. The 4 "AA" external backup batteries are contained in a battery pack which is clipped to the side of the hydro generator unit.
Q. "Does the hydro generator charge the 4 external 'AA' backup batteries as well?"
A. The hydro generator only charges its internal battery.
Q. "The flow rate coming out of my faucet is low. Will I be able to use the hydro generator?"
A. The hydro generator is designed to work on as little as 1 gallon per hour flow rate.
Q. "How do I determine my flow rate?"
A. First turn the fixture on full and collect water for ten seconds. Measure the quantity of water in the container in gallons. Then multiply the volume of water by six to get your flow rate in gallons per minute.
Q. "If the internal battery no longer holds a charge can it be replaced?"
A. The internal battery on the hydro generator is not replaceable.
Q. "What is LEED certification?"
A. LEED certification is a recognition that a construction project or building can attain by utilizing environmentally friendly building practices during construction or remodeling. LEED is the acronym that stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design and is the Green Building Rating System developed by the U.S. Green Building Council.
Q. "What does 'ADA Compliant' mean?"
A. Complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990. The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 is a comprehensive civil rights act for people with disabilities. On July 26, 1990, the President signed the ADA into law as wide-ranging legislation intended to make American society more accessible to people with disabilities and to prohibit discrimination on the basis of disability. The ADA was built primarily due to the desire of individuals with disabilities to work toward their goal of full participation in American society, and effects the ADA may have on businesses include restructuring or altering the layout of a building, modifying equipment, and removing barriers.
Q. "What does 'UL listed' mean?"
A. When something is UL-listed it means that the Underwriters Laboratories has tested the device, and it meets their requirements for safety when properly installed.
Q. "What does it mean to have ANSI Certification for lead free plumbing products?"
A. Laws requiring plumbing products that come in to contact with drinking water to be essentially lead-free (0.25% weighted average) have been passed in California, Louisiana, Maryland, and Vermont. In order for companies to ship these plumbing products to locations in CA, LA, MD and VT, they must be ANSI certified lead free.
Q. "What is CA AB 1953, LA Act No. 362, MD HB 372, and VT S.152 and how is this different from previous low-lead legislation?"
A. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulates the amount of lead in drinking water under guidelines established in the Federal Safe Drinking Water Act (passed in 1974; amended in 1988 and 1996). This Act defines "lead-free" as not more than 8% lead in pipes and fixture fittings. PLEASE NOTE: Use of the term "lead-free" varies between the new legislation in CA (AB 1953), LA ( Act No. 362), MD (HB 372), and VT (S.152), and in the current Federal Safe Drinking Water Act requirements. In the new legislation for CA, LA, MD and VT only (as of Jan 2013), it will mean 0.25% or less (weighted average). Similar national legislation is scheduled to go into effect Jan 2014.
