Water-Saving Sink Faucet Pours Water In Swirling Lattice

March 6, 2015


This is the Swirl faucet design concept from Simin Qiu. It uses two turbines to pour water in a two-layer swirling lattice. Because the water doesn't fall in a solid stream, it's supposed to save water consumption by up to 15%. Of course, the extra water you spend just sitting there staring at it will probably increase your water consumption by 15%, so it's a wash. A HAND wash. Get it? It's Friday and I really wanna catch a nap before happy hour.

Keep going for several more shots.



Thanks to Terrance, who learned the trick of washing your hands in the back of the toilet tank as it fills up to help conserve water. Clever.

    This does resemble my gifting concept. Cool & practical. :)

    Great design, love to see this hit the market soon.

    Take my money!

    Lol like "two turbines"? How much power does this need? Seems not very conservation minded

  • disqus_k2QxOV9H7Z

    By the looks of it 0. Not all turbines consume energy, many are used to produce energy from movement instead of consuming energy to produce movement. In this case it seems like it use the water pressureand movement to move the parts.

    All those moving parts will get clogged with mineral deposits in about two weeks.

    Actually, if you have a filtration system in your house it wont be that bad. I have a whole house filter that brings our mineral levels WAY down (RainSoft) to the point where we could actually install one of these if it fit the style of the house.

    That was my thought. I hope they included an easy way to replace the turbine core and spare cores.

    Until you want to fill a pot to boil some water or something... then you'll be standing there all day. I took the mesh thing off my kitchen faucet for reasons like that.

    Or better yet, don't be an idiot and put this in your kitchen. Put it in your bathroom sink like it was designed for.

    Gimme, 'n such!

  • Jenness

    If this works the way it's proposed it would be beautiful, functional and conservation minded so I'm hoping it does, because we need more of this type of inventive design and less the "Butt selfie stick" or "smoking dope hoodies" and useless, makes the world cringe innovations.

  • Ben Udkow

    I sort of agree with you, but a world without useless inventions sounds like a pretty boring world to live in...Is "Big Mouth Billy Bass" useless? Yes. Is it annoying? Yes. Is it awesome? YES.

    It's a gravity lift!
