We’ve all seen those modern public restrooms with the convenient touch-less faucets and paper towel dispensers and wondered to ourselves: What would it take to get that in my home? Aside from spending a fortune on a new high-tech faucet, there’s a new start-up that’s selling an adapter you can use on your current setup in the kitchen or bathroom. The Autowater faucet adapter is currently being funded on Indiegogo and it looks as though it is easy to set up and even simpler to start using.
The Autowater range of faucet adapters look like an easy way to get an automatic tap in your home. The company that created it, Techo, is saying that there’s no need to hire a plumber to install the adapter on your faucet. It’s just a matter of clicking it in to your existing setup and then you’ll be ready to start saving water and spreading less germs around.
This new adapter has two different sensors. There’s one at the bottom for short bursts and one at the side for longer use. It should work great in bathrooms where you don’t always want to touch the faucet. Or you could plan a nice upgrade for your kitchen with one of these and start saving water and have a more convenient setup.
One of the main reasons this system has been developed is to more easily prevent the spread of germs in everyone’s household. Kitchens and bathrooms can have millions of bacteria which can lead to illness for anyone that comes in contact with them. By eliminating the need to touch the faucet when washing your hands, Autowater is an easy way to help reduce germ contact around your house.
Autowater helps prevent the spread of germs and lowers water consumption at home. It is easy to install and looks elegant in most settings with its beautiful aluminum casing. Autowater’s motion sensor night light makes it easy to get water in the dark. Its powerful battery can be charged magnetic and lasts 8-12 months per charge.
With only 22 days left in its campaign, the Autowater has met 100% of its funding goal and then some. If you would like one of these adapters in your kitchen or bathroom, you can pledge $59 or more and get in on the early bird special from its Indiegogo campaign site. That’s half-off the expected retail value and currently the lowest price they’re offering it. You’ll get one Autowater K (kitchen) or Autowater B (bathroom) faucet adapter. If all goes as planned, shipping to backers is estimated for February of 2018.
