PreTap / Purified Water Tap

PreTap
PreTap

Isolate the purified water in the pipe from air as the valve element is closed to keep bacteria from growing in the purified water by using front-facing switches.

we get our inspiration from the caps of bottles and innovatively put the switches of water purifying taps at the water outlets. In this way, the purified water is kept from direct contact with air,which effectively keeps bacteria from going into the pipe and growing in the purified water.
