Save Water – 10 Second Water Faucet Timer
Problem: Children (and adults) tend to turn the water faucet on first and leave the water running while they are soaping and lathering their hands. They also “take their time” doing so, sometimes leaving the water running for minutes at a time.
Answer: Follow POSTED INSTRUCTIONS next to the faucet sink (on the mirror):
- Put lathered soap in your hands from a dispenser.
- Rub your hands for at least 10 seconds.
- Trigger the laser faucet on a 10 second timed water faucet.
- Rinse your hands while the water is on.
- Dry your hands.
Implement this in every school around the country first and save thousands and millions of gallons over the continuing life of the faucet.
