Freshwater is essential to life on earth. We need freshwater in order to grow food, keep clean, produce energy, and to stay alive. While approximately 71% of the earth's surface is covered in water, only about 3% of this water is freshwater suitable for human consumption. Although freshwater is produced through the earth's water cycle, because of growing populations and urbanization, the earth's freshwater resources are being depleted faster than they can be replenished. This increased use of freshwater, coupled by a growing number of droughts, likely due to global warming, make the need for water conservation more compelling than ever before in human history.
While desalinization may be a viable option in the future to increase freshwater supplies, the technology is expensive and energy consumptive. Water conservation is the most cost effective and environmentally sound way to reduce demand for water and stretch our freshwater supplies. Water conservation also saves energy and reduces carbon emissions, which helps in the effort to stop global warming. Water and energy are inexorably linked, as energy is required to lift water from underground aquifers, to transport water from the areas where it is found to areas of human use, including pumping water uphill, and for treatment of water waste. Globally, it is estimated that more than 7% of the world's energy consumption is used for delivering water. In California, this number is estimated to be as high as 10%. A large amount of freshwater is also used in the process of creating energy.
Use of the Smart Faucet™ water saving device is an inexpensive and easy way to conserve freshwater and energy, to help the environment and to reduce global warming. Nearly 80% of freshwater used at the faucet goes straight down the drain unused and is wasted. This places an unnecessary burden on wastewater treatment plants, and is a waste of billion of gallons of freshwater per year. It is also a waste of all the energy used to move, heat and treat this wasted water. Installation of the Smart Faucet™ eliminates all water waste at the faucet, saving up to 15,000 gallons of water per year, per unit installed.
The Smart Faucet™ is also a preferable alternative to infrared sink sensors. Unlike infrared devices, the Smart Faucet™ does not require any batteries or special tools for installation, and costs a fraction of the price of an infrared device.
