Cascade / Smart Tap


Cascade is a smart tap designed to reduce water usage while displaying the water beautifully. It aims to reduce the water usage as there is no water flowing through the middle. This reduces the waste of water whilst creating a beautiful visual effect to the water, similiar to ones seen on waterfalls or a weir.

The tap also can monitor water usage, in terms of volume and money giving the user a real sense of how much water they are using in a measurement that they would understand the implications of instantly.
