Water-saving basin / wash basin

Water-saving basin
Water-saving basin

When using hot water,we have trouble with waiting for water being heated.Much water have been wasted after water in pipeline is hot enough to use.
Smart water-saving wash basin sloves this problem by storing not-hot-enough water in a tank.With senors,the computer embedded in the basin gathers info from hot water pipe.Based on the info the embedded computer controls valves.If
water in hot pipe flows but not hot enough,computer closes the valves in front of
the main tap and open the valves in front of the tank.In this way water is stored.When using small amount of cold water,user can use stored water by turning on the secondary tap.
