The Salva Faucet Does Not Need to Run to Produce Your Preferred Temperature

A great deal of unnecessary water is wasted by people multiple times each day, just during the process of achieving one's desired temperature. The Salva Faucet concept would change this practice by eliminating that one initial step.

JungJun Park's idea is to enable the tap to prepare H2O within the fixture before it's dispensed. First, the user would push the pivoting lever to the left or to the right, choosing either cold, hot or something in between. Once this has been done, the handle can be lifted vertically and left to pour freely, already delivering liquid of one's preferred temperature. Standing upright, the switch of the Salva Faucet resembles an exclamation mark, communicating a subtle warning to those who waste water. Stats for Aqua-Conserving Taps Trending: Older & Mild
