An aerator, which is a metallic device with a system of screens that can be screwed onto the end of a faucet, mixes air into the water and reduces the overall flow of water out of the faucet.
Why this Matters
For My Organization
A faucet aerator can reduce water consumption by 50%, thus reducing the costs of water and energy used to heat the water by as much as 50%. The device can save 7,800 gallons of water per year.
For New Orleans
Faucet aerators reduce water and energy waste in cities.
