Innovative Sink Faucets Save More Water

Now the awareness of energy saving is increasing, especially in water conservation. However the ordinary sink faucets do not have water-saving feature, which results in the water waste in daily life.

This water-saving sink faucet designed into a cuboid shape, has the chrome surface giving it an elegant apperance. Instead of the traditional or touching switch, the designer inspired by the storage principle of water fountain makes the sink faucet could store a certain amount of water flowing out when pulling the ring of it from bottom to top.

You can also press the regulating valve next to sink faucet to adjust the amount of water, which is very humane. In addition, if you want to fill the entire basin, you can press the control button at the bottom of the sink faucet. Then the water will flow out constantly to meet the needs under different conditions.

Seesaw faucet can save more water than some sensor-saving devices. When you get the hand sanitizer from one side of it, the other side will stand up to close the faucet immediately.

Water storage type
sink faucet often reserve rated water. But if you don’t turn off the faucet
when you get hand sanitizer, the water stored in pipe will soon drain away. The
consequence is that your hands with hand sanitizer can not be cleaned instantly,
because you have to close the faucet to wait for it conserving water again.
