Despite the fact that 70% of the earth is covered by water, the 7.6 billion people all over the world is still thirsty for clean drinking water. Not only developing countries like Africa, but developed countries such as Australia as well are also meeting this unquenchable thirst with just drops of water. India is the largest user of ground water in the world, after China. An estimated 1.32 billion Indians is already facing desperate domestic, agricultural and industrial shortages because of the wasteful usage of water by several human activities.
Nobody will ever know the worth of water until the well is dry. The issue with regular faucets is that they dispense between 10 to 20 liters of water per minute but only use a fraction of the water coming out. It basically bounces of the surface of hands and dishes, or even worse, just flows straight down the drain much more than what is actually required. This leads to extreme wastage. Results predict that if something is not done soon, there will not be enough water in the world to meet demand by 2040.
Altered Company has made a small contribution to solve this huge problem by creating Altered Nozzle. This reduces water usage by an unbelievable 98% while simultaneously retaining functionality, i.e., “Same tap. 98% less water”. Its goal is to reduce the unnecessary wastage of 32 gallons of water by average household to less than one gallon using a revolutionary water-saving design. It comes with dual flow specially designed to increase the everyday efficiency.
The mist mode is perfect for washing your hands, brushing your teeth and washing dishes and greens with 98% savings; while the spray mode is perfect for filling a glass, pots or pans with 85% savings. It provides washing hands in 0.2 liters/min rather than 12 liters/min provided by standard faucets. That means it takes all the water that would slip through our fingers down the drain and puts it into good use. It is easy to install, fits into your existing tap, and pays itself in a couple of months while saving tons of water and energy.
