This Smart Faucet eliminates water waste by providing water only exactly when it’s needed (in the beginning and end of the hand-washing event), and automatically shuts off the water while you’re lathering up, which saves water and heat. No more constant adjustment with the hot and cold temperature setting trying to get the right temperature, as it is set at the desired heat setting. The best feature of this product is that it’s made to retrofit directly on to your existing hardware.
The Smart Faucet is a 1.5gpm (gallons per minute) aerator with an antimicrobial handle that controls water flow from the faucet. Water only flows when the handle is depressed, although there is a locking disk for continuous flow when needed.
The Smart Faucet requires no batteries or electricity to control consumption and is produced and packaged in the United States. The Smart Faucet can save up to 15,000 gallons when compared with the use of a standard 2.5gpm aerator. The Smart Faucet is an example of a low-tech solution that can save lots of resources and educate at the same time.
