Efficient Living: Faucet Aerators

Easy to install, these faucet aerators not only swivel, spray and stream, but they also feature a flip switch that lets you briefly turn the water on and off. This is great while washing dishes because it maintains the water at your perfect temperature, while allowing you to temporarily shut off the water when you're doing things like: (1) transferring big pots after rinsing, or (2) each time you lean over to fill a dish rack. Because you're not changing the entire faucet, just adding to the tip, they're great for apartments!

These faucet aerators will lower your water bill. They're also are durable, long-lasting and inexpensive. Best of all, they're an incredibly easy eco-friendly fixture for your home.
