How Does a Tap Aerator Work?

Also known as flow regulators, tap aerators are small attachments that either fit onto the end of a tap or insert into the existing spout. Tap aerators work by mixing air into the water to restrict the amount of water passing through the tap. The aerator behaves like a fine sieve, separating a single stream of water into many tiny streams surrounded by air. The reduced space for the water to pass through, as well as the introduction of air, results in no perceivable loss in water pressure and up to half the water usage! This increased water efficiency can have a real impact on your annual water usage and a beneficial effect on water bills, especially if aerators are fitted to multiple taps. The only downside is that filling a basin will take longer, though this is a minor price to pay for considerably reduced water usage and bills.

It’s estimated that aerators can save you up to 1,274 litres of water a month and this in turn means less energy is used for heating it, thus gas or oil bills are also reduced.
