Gojo 273012 TFX Foam Soap Dispenser Review
Table of Contents
We are all familiar with the gross feeling one feels upon touching soap on a rusty sink. No one likes the idea of washing their hands in some dirty looking sink with a dirty-looking soap after using a public bathroom.
It is for this reason that touchless foam soap dispensers came into existence – to make you feel comfortable while washing hands in that shared bathroom, whether it is in the office or back at home.
Using one of these dispensers ensures minimal contact with germs since their manual counterparts usually carry lots of germs – because people must touch them before cleaning their hands.
With that in mind, there are many different brands of automatic soap dispensers that you can buy. They are available in different sizes, shapes, features, and cost. One of these dispensers that is worth checking out is the Gojo foam soap dispenser.
Below you are going to see some of its features, how it works, and whether it is worth investing in. Before we get into it, you need to know that Gojo offers several different models of automatic soap dispensers – the one we are going to have a look at is the Gojo 273012 TFX foam soap dispenser.
It features sanitary-sealed refills that make it possible to keep out germs. With each refill, you will find a fresh dispensing valve, and each of these secures itself into place with an audible click sound if you load the bottle properly. Regarding certification, the Gojo Foam Dispenser complies with the following: Conformite Europeene (CE), Underwriters Laboratories (UL), and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Regarding size, the dimension of the Gojo unit are 11.2 x 6.2 x 4.2 inches and weighs 1.5 pounds on shipping.

The Gojo 273012 TFX Foam Soap Dispenser comes in black and has a three-year manufacturer warranty. It goes with the 1200ml Gojo TFX refill bottles for the best user experience.
Gojo foam dispenser requires batteries to power up the sensor for automation. Besides regular foam soap, you can also use foam hand sanitizer. For the best results, ensure you replace the batteries when necessary and always keep the sensor clean to avoid untriggered soap dispensing.
To ensure the dispenser remains in perfect working condition, position it in the driest possible area. You would not want a wet battery compartment as it would damage your dispenser. Proper maintenance is key to any dispenser’s ability to serve you for a long time – so ensure you take all the necessary precautions and measures to ensure you get the best out of the Gojo foam dispenser.
From the Gojo Foam Dispenser review above, you can be sure that this product will deliver when it comes to keeping your sink area free of harmful germs. Not that they are many but the Gojo dispenser has all the features that define a great automatic soap dispenser.
It is quite affordable so getting it would not make a significant depth in your pocket – keeping away germs will also spare you from medical costs associated with germ-contaminated bathrooms.
Given the unit’s large capacity, it is ideal for commercial use – that is in offices or any other public places with human traffic. Also, installation is quite easy and it would take you a few minutes to get it up and running.
Not to take anything away from the Gojo 273012 TFX Foam Soap Dispenser, but it does have some shortcomings.
Nevertheless, these are small issues that you can live with without much inconvenience. For one, you require proprietary Gojo TFX bags for them to work.
The problem with these bags is that they are difficult to find a way around to put in another brand of soap. Also, like any other automatic battery-powered soap dispenser out there, you must replace the batteries after some point in time.
The shortcomings of the Gojo 273012 TFX do not take much away from the soap dispenser. The dispenser would still be a prudent investment especially if you are keen on the price because it is an affordable unit. Regarding performance, this product works just fine if the batteries are in good condition and it is in a good position where it cannot easily get wet. To get the best out of it, ensure you regularly clean the sensor and ensure no moisture or foam gets into the battery compartment.
