We are taught to shut off taps when we brush teeth or do the dishes. But even when the tap is in use, nearly half of the water goes to waste. And that is because taps are designed to let out thick streams to make the work “quicker”. Pretty useless, but then when have we really spared a thought for the environment while creating utilitarian merchandise?
What if a small addition to your tap could save nearly 90 per cent of water that goes down the drain?
Earth Fokus’ adaptor is all you need to be a water hero! Click here to choose between their EcoMist and QuaMist adaptors.
Save 95 per cent of water while using it:
Earth Fokus has two different adaptors, both of which are designed to save 90-95 per cent of water-waste in your house. The difference is in their installation processes. So whether you want the adaptor to fit on your taps or go for a retrofit, the organisation has you covered. Both adaptors can be installed in less than a minute and no, you won’t need to call the plumber.
The EcoMist adaptor that costs just Rs 550:
This water adaptor is designed to convert the normal tap flow into a gentle mist. If an ordinary tap dispenses about 10 litres of water every minute, this adaptor reduces it to just 0.5 litres per minute, saving 95 per cent of the water. Best used in commercial spaces, the EcoMist adaptor will also slash your water bills considerably.
The adaptor is made of brass, which is both water-resistant and safe. This device will fit inside your tap and the mist will not compromise on your washing experience. In the words of Earth Fokus, “No one would know what sorcery is happening.”
The retrofitting QuaMist device:
Designed to ease your job at the kitchen sink or washbasin, this adaptor also saves 95 per cent of water. It has two settings – mist mode and jet mode. The former covers more surface area while the latter gives you a sharp flow. It will take you just 30 seconds to retrofit your taps with this adaptor.
QuaMist works best when the minimum water pressure is 1.5 bars. If you have a booster pump or an overhead tank, this pressure is easily achievable. Compatible with both, female and male threads, the device fits on a standard-sized tap (24 mm outer diameter).
