The Smart Faucet

The Smart Faucet

One of the easiest and simplest ways to be a little greener is to turn off the water while you're brushing your teeth or soaping up your hands. But that's not always possible: you've got a job that's complicated or dangerous, you've turned the faucet on for a kid who's too small to reach it himself…

...and just getting him to rinse his hands after he's put them in his nose—or worse— is goal enough! Or you'd like to turn your faucet off but as hard as you tighten it, it still drips and right now, post-holiday, calling in a plumber is not in your budget. Solving these problems? One Smart Faucet to rule them all.

Okay, truth be told, we encountered this faucet in action at a friend's house over the break and the faucet may be smarter than we are; it took us a few minutes to figure it out. What's really awesome about this faucet, besides its water saving properties, is that if you have kids in your house (or kid visitors) who are too small to reach the handles but can reach the spout, they can easily turn the water on and off themselves. (Once you set the water to the desired temperature and pressure, all it takes is a push on the lever to allow the water to flow). Installing the Smart Faucet also solves the dripping faucet problem; the Smart Faucet completely stops the faucet from leaking when it's installed.
