Only 45° Outfall / Outfall

Only 45° Outfall
Only 45° Outfall

Only 45° Outfall uses a simple design to remind the user to save water (turning off the tap). Its trait is that it only can been rotated 45 degrees so that actual drainage is half of before. When people forget to close water faucet in daily life (such as washing hands and brushing teeth), the water won’t lose all, but nearly half of water will remain in water channel. This phenomenon amplifies the act of wasting water so that it attains the goal to remind people to save water. It is a simple solution to a big problem.
