Tapmaster at the Vancouver Home Show

See you at the Vancouver Home Show...or, if you don't live nearby, request a Tapmaster® Online Demo!

Fast-growing Calgary company Tapmaster Inc. will demo its line of revolutionary, hands-free faucet controllers at this year’s Vancouver Fall Home Show, Oct.14-17 at the Convention Centre, West Building (Booth 614).

 

Why revolutionary? The answer is simple: Tapmaster® breaks the chain of infection (preventing germs and viruses from spreading) at the #1 cross contamination point worldwide: the faucet. The most amazing thing is that Tapmasters don’t use electronics or sensors to do it!
 

In fact, Tapmaster® was built specifically to work better than sensors. Tapmaster® founder, Calgary-based inventor Peter Pubben, was fed up waving his hands around in front of sink sensor faucets with nothing happening! He decided to change the game (yes, he’s expected be at the Show).
 

Mr. Pubben came up with a brand-new way to convert any faucet to hands-free operation. He designed “retrofit” controllers (for any faucet) that -- using existing pressure in the water lines -- activate with a tap of the toe or a slight press of the knee. More reliable than sensors, these water-powered, hands-free controllers save water, money and lives.
 

The 2021 foot-activated models are attractive, discreet, chrome-plated brass fixtures that could easily become the home kitchen and bathroom installation of choice for pandemic-aware home interior designers. The knee activators? You’ll never even see them! Hidden behind your cabinet door under the sink, they run the water by moving 1/1,000 of an inch… with a stealthy nudge of the knee.

 

Still wondering why you might want to visit the Tapmaster® booth? Here’s why: The family-led Tapmaster® team will be there to answer questions like these:

  1.  How does a Tapmaster® break the chain of infection?
  2.  How well has your product been received in the North American dental industry?
  3. How many Tapmasters® have they installed at Toronto’s largest hospital, Mt Sinai?

 

A visit to Booth 614 at the Vancouver Home Show will be almost as good as watching the Tapmaster® team machine the product parts and hand-assemble them, one-at-a-time, in their Northeast Calgary shop, testing as they go for 100 percent quality. If you’re in Vancouver but can’t make the Show, visit Tapmaster.ca or give the company a call. Let them know you’d like to book a live Tapmaster® Online Demo!

Fast-growing Calgary company Tapmaster Inc. will demo its line of revolutionary, hands-free faucet controllers at this year’s Calgary Fall Home Show, Sept.30-Oct.3 at the BMO Centre (Booth 441).

 

Why revolutionary? The answer is simple: Tapmasters® break the chain of infection (preventing germs and viruses from spreading) at the #1 cross contamination point worldwide: the faucet. Tapmaster® is unique on the market because it doesn't use sensors or any electronics of any kind. It is powered by the water pressure in your plumbing.

 

Tapmasters® were built specifically to work better than sensors. Tapmaster® founder, Calgary-based inventor Peter Pubben, was tired of waving his hands around in front of sensor faucets with nothing happening! Peter and the rest of the Tapmaster® team will be at the show ready to answer questions and explain how the Tapmaster® system works.

Make it a Safer “Stay-At-Home” Summer!

June 30, 2021News, Home/Consumer

Tapmaster® hands-free faucet controllers slow the spread of infection and bring convenience and style to our homes, the most important places in the world.

Tapmaster® hands-free faucet controllers slow the spread of infection and bring convenience and style to our homes, the most important places in the world.

As summer heats up, our home lives spill out onto decks and patios and into the garden for BBQ meals, cold ones, laughter and sunsets. When we go RVing, we often take most of our kitchens with us. Doing yard work, we enjoy ourselves by getting a bit dirty! During this summer fun, of course, it’s a good idea for us to keep thinking about how to stay “clean, safe and well” with some help from Tapmaster®.

How can we have an even safer summer?

When we touch our faucets, germs immediately transfer to our skin. We wash our hands, following the latest advice on how to do it right, thinking we’re being “clean and safe.” But the water is still running and as soon as we grab the faucet again to turn it off, the germs are back on our hands, ready to contaminate everything and everyone. The only real solution is this: Never touch the faucets! Tapmaster® hands-free controllers make this possible. You run them with your knees or feet and they use the water pressure in your lines, not electricity. They make kitchens and bathrooms cleaner and safer for families and individuals everywhere. They block the spread of infection, make busy lives easier and stylishly accessorize our interiors.

Tapmaster® hands-free controllers make this possible. Plus, they save water, power and money, making them superior to sensors because they don’t need electricity. They run on the water pressure in your lines. For more than 25 years, Tapmaster® has recognized the importance of hygiene and safety in our homes. Our high-quality, hands-free faucet controllers make kitchens and bathrooms cleaner and safer for families and individuals everywhere. They block the spread of infection, make busy lives easier and stylishly accessorize our interiors.

Number One in the dental industry

The first Tapmaster® was sold into the dental industry in the 1990s. It earned us an immediate reputation for reducing contamination as well as for reliability, ease of installation and water savings. As a result, Tapmaster® controllers are the leading hands-free faucet solution in North American dental offices and they are pre-installed in many cabinet products sold by major manufacturers into the dental industry.

Toronto’s largest hospital did WHAT?

Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto, the city’s largest, flat-specified Tapmaster® for all ongoing builds and renovations. In other words, they’re not interested in using anything else to run their faucets in the Emergency Room or anywhere else. And Derrick Muir, Operations Supervisor with Building Services at Mount Sinai thinks so highly of Tapmaster® hands-free controllers, he’s also recommending them to other hospitals.

A safety showpiece for an American hospital

Lancaster General Hospital (Lancaster, Pennsylvania) is one American hospital that was quick to install Tapmaster® solutions based on its own research. Its new Seraph-McSparren Pediatric Inpatient Center was designed as an engaging and uplifting space for patients and their families. Infection control was a key consideration for the new unit and products selected for installation had to have proven track records for exceptional reliability and effectiveness. Tapmaster® created a health and safety showpiece in the waiting area: A custom-designed, hands-free washbasin for children and families visiting the unit.

“Awesome product. We flat specified it!”

April 14, 2021Home/Consumer, Commercial/Industrial

Derrick Muir, Operations Supervisor, Building Services at Toronto’s Mount Sinai Hospital thinks so highly of Tapmaster® hands-free faucet activators (also known as controllers), he’s recommending them to other hospitals.

“It’s an awesome, back-to-basics product,” he says, adding, with a smile, that he believes the installed activators will last another 10 years, until he retires. “I don’t think about them once they’re in.”

Muir was there when the first unit was installed as a trial in the Mt Sinai Emergency Room in 2013. Since that time, “that original Emergency Room activator has been used at least every 15 minutes, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year,” he says.

And since then, Mt Sinai has installed approximately 900 Tapmaster® hands-free faucet activators and flat-specified the brand for ongoing construction and renovations.

That will likely mean several hundred additional units, he says. The current Renew Sinai initiative is the largest and most ambitious redevelopment in Mt Sinai’s history. Many important facilities will be completely redesigned and rebuilt by the end of 2022. The work will include more than 140 distinct projects on 20 floors and about 300,000 square feet of hospital space. That’s the equivalent of five football fields!

During our recent Zoom call with Muir, we also asked him: “Would you say Mt Sinai medical staff believes Tapmaster® controllers slow the spread of infection?”

Muir’s response: “One hundred percent!”

Asked about sensor faucets (the competition), Muir says they’ve had to be replaced numerous times. Cleaners often damaged them, whereas Tapmaster® activators “show no wear and tear.”

Muir also likes that Tapmaster® activators require no electricity. They’ve “held strong through power outages” and Mt Sinai (a Jewish healthcare facility) does not use electricity on the Sabbath.

“I recommended Tapmaster® to two other facilities: Sunnybrook and Lakeridge in Oshawa,” Muir says, adding “It’s low maintenance, which is low cost. It has been installed in the public washrooms and on drinking fountains as well. It lasts longer. The new spaces throughout the Mt Sinai hospital system are all Tapmaster®. And no other manufacturer gives me service like Tapmaster®.”
