Add some more air into the mix to save water and money.
These handy little devices can reduce water usage from your taps by more than half without you feeling a difference. And, because they fit onto the end of your existing taps, they’re an economical option for anyone looking to save water without forking out for a whole new tap.
Tap aerators restrict the flow of water from your tap without reducing pressure or changing the tap’s appearance. Where a standard tap might use anything from 15 to 18 litres of water per minute, the same tap installed with an aerator could use just 2 to 9 litres of water per minute, depending on the aerator’s flow rate (usually found listed on the packet).
Tap aerators can be found in most hardware stores for as little as $5 each and are easy to install yourself. Unscrew your current aerator from your faucet and take it with you when you go to buy a new one so you can be sure you’re getting the right fit.
