Sure, you probably hate those infrared automatic faucets that populate mall and movie theater bathrooms. But they sure do help those high-traffic hot spots save real cash on their water bills. If you've got a high-traffic home, why not retro-fit this spring-loaded Smart Faucet attachment to your own tap and start saving water?
The Smart Faucet is definitely an easy and relatively cheap fix for anyone who's got children (or grown ups!) in the house who can't ever seem to turn the water knobs when they're through. It's a retro-fit attachment that screws on to nearly any standard tap.
The Smart Faucet attachment features a lever that when gently pressed gives you the stream of water your sticky hands were looking for. You'll get water only when you need it, putting an end to drips and leaks. In addition to being the perfect kitchen tool for anyone concerned about being green, it's also a great accessory for chefs and bakers, allowing you the filthy-finger-free ability to get your hands wet and clean.
But if you ever need a continuous stream, all you've got to do is flip the lever upwards. The Smart Faucet does what you want, when you want it. And all for $39. Grab one from Gaiam.
