Push taps or twist taps- which saves more water?

Lets find out ………….

By

Miss Guest’s First Class

our experiment
Our experiment:
  • We had the task of finding out which tap- twist or push, was more efficient, i.e. which one used the least water.
what we did
What we did:
  • We nominated two people to wash their hands- one using the twist tap and the other using the push tap.
  • We collected the water being used in a basin and poured the water from both basins into two separate jars of the same size.

Next …….
  • We drew a line on each jar at the point where the water rose up to.
  • There was a BIG difference between the two!
for the next five school days
For the next five school days…
  • We wrote a tick beside our name on a chart which teacher had made, every time we washed our hands after going to the toilet.
after the 5 days
After the 5 days…
  • Teacher counted up all the times we washed our hands during a school week using our new push taps in the toilet and then multiplied that by the amount of water in the jar from the push tap
slide7
Also…
  • Teacher calculated how much water we would have used if we still had twist taps in the toilets.
  • We examined the difference between the 2 results.
we discovered
We discovered…..
  • That each time we washed our hands with a twist tap, it used about 12ml of water.
  • Whereas if we still used twist taps, we would use around 90ml of water each time we washed our hands!!!
  • That’s a BIG difference!
finally
Finally….
  • We calculated how much water we would save every week by using these fantastic water- saving twist taps.
  • We discovered that we would save 11.7 litres of water per classroom, PER WEEK!
imagine if
Imagine if….
  • We still were using twist taps and washing our hands that many times in a week!
  • We would be wasting a lot of water so we think that the Push Tap is a clear winner!!
