Has anyone tried these automatic water faucet control add-ons? They screw on in place of the aerator, have a short "wand" extending from them. Set the regular faucets and then push on the wand for water flow. Looks great for conserving water.

I encountered one in a Walmart restroom and it seemed like it would be pretty useful.

I installed one of those tigamajigees last summer on the bathroom sink faucet. I think its a great idea and it's a water saver..you can leave it on the "on" posiition if you want to let the water run constantly ..

There was a thread going here about a week ago about showers going cold using the shut-off on the shower head. I assume that this gizmo on the faucet would cause the same problem, but it may not matter as much in the kitchen.

another thought... when the auto valve is set on the "on" position and your hot and cold valves are left in the open position if you draw cold or hot water from another faucet it is possible to have some feed thur.. example:at another sink draw cold water and some hot water will past thur the valve that you have the auto control on .. hot water will bypass into the cold water due to the pressure drop when drawing the cold water. This is almost unnoticible.. but having a plumbing backgound this has happen when automic washing machine valves get stuck in the open position.

That thing sounds like a device I have so my dogs can always have fresh clean water.You attach it to a hose bib. They learn to lick the wand and the lateral displacement of the wand allows water flow. It is called a "Lickzit".

We use this faucet control. It is a little wand that attaches to the sink. We only use it in the kitchen and love it. Moving the wand with your hand allows the water to flow. We notice no difference in loosing hot water. The wand can be turned to allow water to freely flow. For only a couple bucks, I highly recommend it.

We keep a spray bottle by the sink for when we need only a little water.

I have 2 of these and had bought them for friends and now more friends want them. The local RV place I bought them from 3 years ago no longer has them. At the time, they were reduced for sale so I bought a bunch of them. I believe the name on the package was "water saver". They work pretty good. I have searched the net but can't seem to find them now. Anyone know where to get them??. See first post here for description.
Oh yes.. and Ken is right.. if both valves are open with this device on, you get a luke warm shower

Found this by doing a google search. Is this the product you're talking about? Looks like something we could use.

I love the one I put on my bathroom sink. It took some getting used to, though. I got mine from the RV Water Filter Store. Look here

We tried the "water saver" on both our bathroom and the kitchen sinks. Didn't work out to good in the our bathroom sink, if I remember because our sink was so small with the pressure turned up enough to allow it to work right it splashed all over.

We learned our lesson in the kitchen sink. If you have one of those dual sprayer nozzles don't even think about using one of these devices. In order to use it properly the fawcett has to be opened, and that puts pressure against the head. Those heads are attached by just popping them on. The head will pop off and you or your RV will get a shot of water all over the place.
