Touch Water

People usually sacrifice a lot of time in front of the tap, especially during shower, adjusting the temperature of water to a cozy degree. And the water wasted during this process is often ignored. Supposed that a most suitable temperature can be set in advance, it surely will avoid some unnecessary waste. Through electronic components which can achieve the conduction of water temperature in the pipe onto the faucet switch, just by touching the switch instead of making adjustment in traditional way, the most suitable water temperature can be found out.
