ecoturn / water faucet


Have you ever think about how much water you need to wash your hands ?
ECOTURN visualize water consumption and brings more attention to the use of water in our everyday life.
The index on the water faucet shows how much water will be released until the turn-switch close the valve.
By turning the turn-switch to the right the water starts to flow and the „automatic turn back function“ brings the turn-switch back to starting position.
This „automatic turn back function“ prevents from wasting water and is therefore especially suitable for locations where water faucets are frequently used. For example airports, restaurants or public buildings.
