Even today – A water tap is a poorly designed product.
Generally, water taps are flowing with high volume of water than required.
Water tap with high flow
Water tap with required flow
If Water Tap turned to max speed then
If Water Volume in one minute is greater than 6 liters then
Water tap has a defect.
Water tap should not flow more than 6 liter water in a minute. Thus saving water.
Earlier, Water tap outlet was hallow and no restriction to water flow. Thus wastes water.
So, with the time, aerator added on the outlet space of water tap.
Aerator is a kind of net that restricts the flow of water.
Further, air occupies space that restrict the flow of water – allowing air bubbles.
The purpose of aerator is to reduce the water flow up to 40%. Hence save water.
Unfortunately, this aerator is not reducing the water flow but increasing the water pressure.
That is the defect in the water tap design.
So, how to find the solution?
Proposed Solution 1:
Either change the design water tap to reduce the volume of water flow.
Such water tap exists. But changing existing water taps will be costly and time consuming. And not many will be interested to change existing taps.
Proposed Solution 2:
Is it possible to reduce water flow to water tap without any cost?
It means it has to be done without changing the design of water tap. Right?
If water tap exists on wash basin then
If knob below wash basin connecting to water tap exists then
Action: This knob needs to turn little to reduce water flow.
Illustration as follows: Save Water – Reduce Water Flow To Wash Basin
Give a Measure: From 9 liter to 6 liter
Measure actual volume on maximum volume of water in a minute. Don’t be surprised if it is 9 liters or more.
Reduce the flow so that maximum volume of water should be 6 liters in a minute.
If lesser is possible and agreed to the user, go for it. The idea is to optimize it.
So – it may save 3 liters or more. Or it’s 33% or more saving of water at washbasin. That’s a good count. Hurray!!
Salient feature of this Save Water tip:
- Zero cost.
- 2 minutes to do it.
- No skills required.
- No device/equipment needed.
- Feasible everywhere
Let’s summarize it as follows:
A simplest way to save water in the world with no cost as follows:
- Step 1: At a washbasin – Just turn water tap maximum and measure total volume of water in a minute. That’s around 9 liters or more.
- Step 2: There is a knob below every wash basin.
- Step 3: Turn it little to reduce water flow.
- Step 4: Water tap maximum volume of water in a minute should be equal to 6 liters or near it.
So, you save water 33% or more at the wash basin with no cost, time, or much effort.
This makes it to be the Simplest way to Save Water in the World and it comes with no cost.
Computation: Annual Saving on one Tap
- 3 Litre x 10 minutes in a Day x 365 days in a year = 10,950 litres water saved
- Market cost of 1 Litre water Bottle is Rs. 20.00 (In India)
- So – Cost of 10,950 Litres X 20 = Rs 2,19,000.00 (Rupees Two Lac Nineteen Thousand Only)
Appeal: Please do this change in your home/ offices/ shopping malls/ hotels everywhere in the world. Thanks
