Water saving aerators

Aerators (or faucet aerators), which are screwed into the spout of the faucet, provide a uniform and splash-free waterflow. The water consumption is reduced by over 50% by the mixing soft air into water jet.
Thus, washing hands is not only enjoyable, but it also saves money significantly by reducing the flow rate.
The amount of water can be reduced quite easily by an faucet aerator without loss any of comfort, because air is added simply to the water. From a normal 12 to 15 liters per minute of water flow, limitedto only about 5 liters per minute . That means (depending on your rate) a possible saving of up to 100 € a year.
Such aerators are available in any hardware store, you can also buy them online.

If you don´t have a nice and even warterjet anymore, but spray in different directions, it is time to replace the aerator or the inside bets, since it will probably be calcified and / or very dirty.
