The average household tap consumes more than 2 liters of water every minute. This may sound small until you think it can equal up to 3,000 gallons of excess water a year. High-efficiency aerators help save water and deliver a smooth and powerful water flow, while saving money. A high-quality faucet aeration adapter helps connect the water-saving aerator to almost any common faucet. Here’s what you need to know before you start.
Nickel and mold should be kept in mind here. Start by removing the washer and inserting it from inside the aerator. Grab a nickel and place it over the aerator. If its size is close to nickel, it has a normal sized aerator. An aerator that can hold a cent is a junior-sized aerator.
Determining the thread is a little easier than discovering the size. A female threaded aerator is screwed onto the tap so that the threads are inside the aerator. The thread of a male aerator is located on the outside, top, of the aerator. It’s very simple, right?
Another consideration to consider when selecting a faucet aerator adapter is the type of water stream it produces:
Spray patak resembles the pattern distributed by the shower head. This type is ideal for bathrooms in commercial premises.
Ventilation / Bubble stream it works by mixing water with air. This pattern is softer than the other options and does not result in splashes. This type is usually found in a residential environment.
Laminar stream excellent for high-flow, splash-free locations such as healthcare facilities.
The slightest change can cause you to have a significant impact on your community’s water consumption. Performing a simple task such as installing a faucet aeration adapter over the taps can save up to 3,000 gallons of water per year. This can be done without much effort and without sacrificing water pressure.
