Yes, you read that right. Easy to use and discreet, this foot faucet will save water, stop germs from spreading with the hands-free design.  Imagine having control of hot and cold water and the garbage disposal with your foot!   This system is also an ideal consideration for homeowners designing their spaces for aging in place!


The foot pedals simply mount in the toe space of your sink cabinet, while the control cable and housing are inside the cabinet.  The levers are made of solid stainless steel and can move in all directions.  No worries if you are barefooted, the patent-pending touch sensor features allows a gentle touch to turn on.

The garbage disposal pedal has two safety features to avoid accidental activation – First, the garbage disposal pedal does not have the touch sensor feature, that pedal must be pushed to get it to activate. Second, the disposal pedal must be pushed from the side to activate so if a person inadvertently steps into the lever it will not turn on.

This system installs on any new or existing sink that has standard plumbing connections. The foot pedals fit in the toe space under the sink cabinet and use power from the garbage disposal outlet or dishwasher outlet. The Control Box has an outlet where your existing garbage disposal cord plugs in. Foot Faucet valves are installed between the water shutoffs and your existing faucet. The AC power is regulated down to low voltage DC current for safe use at the foot pedals. The regular AC plug still runs the garbage disposal, but this power is isolated from the foot pedals, so the risk of electric shock is removed. The levers move in all directions making them ‘soft’ to a bare toe that might hit one from the side.
