Auto shut off faucet with universal design for public facilities such as parks and buildings. Traditional way of auto shut off faucet has powerful spring and the handle is tight, that's hard to use for disabled people, elderly people and small children. To solve the issue, produced with newly designed light spring which works for water pressure helps to stop water. The unique body shape “T” is a handle-work improvement and both sides of big handles make it easy to pull, push and turn by either hand. The height complies with the guideline for Japanese public water fountain, so, fits for various places.
