Tap on/Tap off Faucet Aerator from Advanta is Perfect for Kids' Bathroom

Advanta Water Saving Tap-On/Tap-Off AeratorI just got back from the Kitchen & Bath show in Chicago, where manufacturers from around the world were showing-off their latest and greatest. Amid the $12,000 soaking tubs and top-grade kitchen appliances being demonstrated by celebrity chefs, I found a little product with a lot of potential—the Tap-On/Tap-Off Water Saving Aerator from Advanta Faucet.

The concept behind the aerator is simple. A little button allows you to start and stop the flow of water without touching the faucet handles. Perfect for the kids' bathroom—no more wasted water while they brush their teeth. Would also be great for shaving or for use in the kitchen to avoid contaminating your faucet when handling raw poultry.

Best of all, the Advanta Tap-On/Tap-Off Aerators are cheap and easy to install. Just screw-off your existing aerator and screw-in the Tap-On/Tap-Off. The basic model is only $15. The Time Delay model ($18) has an adjustable automatic shut-off that can be set from 2 to 20 seconds.

Here's a video I shot at the Kitchen & Bath show of the Tap-On aerator. Sorry about the quality, only had my Blackberry available!

These taps do look handy

These taps do look handy for little ones and for handling raw food especially as it would technically semi-clean itself with the button being in the stream of water.

Unfortunately, seems to be not available

I tried to track down current info on this device and couldn’t find anything. It looks like the company that made it, Advanta, may no longer be in business.

However, there is a nearly identical product being sold by an Australian company, Hihippo. They may ship to other countries: http://www.hihippo.com.au/onetouchtap-trade-.html
