"Altered: Nozzle" is a nozzle that is used by attaching it to a faucet. The amount of water used for washing and washing hands can be reduced by up to 98%.
Developed by Altered, based in Stockholm, Sweden. According to the company, when we wash our hands and dishes, much of the tap water falls into the sink instead of being used for cleaning.
"Altered: Nozzle" is a water-saving solution that makes effective use of tap water from the nozzle to the sink. As tap water is sprayed and released, the water spreads widely and spreads throughout the wash and hands. Altered argues that this will reduce the amount of water that flows into the sewage without being used for cleaning. The mist of water also has the advantage of taking longer to fall into the sink.
The amount of tap water released when "Altered: Nozzle" is installed is only 180 ml per minute. It's too small to fill a 200 ml measuring cup. However, the high-speed mist is said to be able to thoroughly wash hands and dishes.
If it takes more than a minute to fill a lightweight cup, some may be wondering what to do when filling a kettle or pan with water. "Altered: Nozzle" also has a shower mode that cuts the amount of water by 75%, and although the amount of water is small, you can fill the pan and kettle with water much faster than the mist.
Altered is currently running a campaign to recruit investors on the crowdfunding site kickstarter in search of initial lot manufacturing costs for "Altered: Nozzle." At the time of this writing, one "Altered: Nozzle" is available for 324 Swedish kronor (about 3,875 yen). Shipment is scheduled for December 2016.
"Altered: Nozzle" is compatible with 3 sizes of faucets that are often used in Europe. However, when I asked Altered if it could be attached to the faucet used in Japan, I got the answer that it is unknown at this time. However, if you let them know the inner diameter of your faucet through kickstarter's "Contact" or Altered's official website "About", they will investigate whether it can be installed and answer as much as possible. In addition, if the demand in Japan is large, it is said that it will consider supporting Japan in the future.
