2STEP Time Delay Faucet / Time Delay Faucet

2STEP Time Delay Faucet
2STEP Time Delay Faucet

Time delay water tap turn off the water itself so that we don’t need to touch the button again when finish washing our hands.
However, we can not decide when to turn off which result in water wasted.
I change the button into a 2-step-button.
People can choose to push a shorter step or a longer step.
Our hand will stop us pushing deeper.
Two step will have different delay effects.
This concept will reduce the water we waste and enhance our awareness of water saving when people using the water tap.
