TAP GUARD / water saving device

TAP GUARD
TAP GUARD

TAP GUARD is a water-saving aerator that can inform people the amount of water they used.
A recent research said that most people are astonished when they are told the amount of water they have used for daily washing. And many people said that they would not use such large amount of water if they do know the exact amount they were using.
In order to constantly remind people to save water, I hope to add a flowmeter to the tap to inform people how much water they have used. Considering most faucets now already have an attached aerator to save water, the flowmeter could easily be integrated with the aerator.
