More than ¾ of our planet is covered by water, yet less than 3% of that is fresh and most of it is in the form of polar ice and out of reach. As the world population grows, more and more people are competing for access to this limited water supply. The impact of human induced pollution and global warming makes water the most important environmental challenge in the 21st century, both in terms of water quality and quantity. The realization has already been reached: Water is not a limitless commodity, nor is it a substance that can be cost-effectively diverted from a region or taken away from a group such as farmers or ranchers without severe consequences to our food supply. One thing is certain, all species on this planet in one way or another will be affected by the increasing water deficit. The key to lessening the impact of such a shortage is in public awareness, education and the introduction of water saving equipments, which provides convenient ways to eliminate waste and encourage conservation. AutoTap is such an equipment….. for today and the future.
At AutoTap, we are proud to provide the public with a convenient and user-friendly system capable of reducing water and energy waste.
AutoTap is for a Greener environment
Each day in the process of washing hands, brushing teeth or washing dishes by hands, millions of gallons of heated water are being wasted as runoffs. The environmental cost of this waste in terms of spent energy for conveying water, purification, distribution, heating before use and the energy spent for wastewater treatment is substantial and is not without a carbon footprint on our environment. AutoTap saves water and energy and that can help to reduce the traces of carbon on our environment.

AutoTap brings efficiency to any faucet by making its use easy and convenient. Once AutoTap is installed , any waste of water would be intentional.
AutoTap is a Green Building product
Of all the requirements for a green building, none is as important or as crucial as the efficient use of water and energy. AutoTap compliments other water and energy saving appliances in making any faucet more efficient. That’s why we say: No home is fully green without AutoTap.
“Water is a precious commodity and a fluid substance that if it is not controlled intelligently has a great tendency not only to waste itself but also the energy it contains.“
Saving Water Saves Energy
Transporting water and its process from the source to tap, requires huge amount of energy. This is known as Embedded Energy. At least 70% of water cost is energy relate, therefore any reduction in water use or its waste should reduce its cost and help the environment.
By reducing tap water waste, AutoTap can save embedded energy one home at a time, with huge accumulative results for the supplier. For the consumer AutoTap saves energy cost by reducing hot water waste. The combined energy savings potential of AutoTap can also benefit the environment by reducing the emissions of green house gases from power plants.

Water is no longer the inexpensive commodity it once was and our water bills are a testament to this fact. As the population grows and the demand for water increases, the municipality has no choice but to continue to increase the cost of water.
AutoTap can save up to 69% water when washing dishes by hand and up to 75% when rinsing dishes prior to placing them in a dishwasher.
With today's high cost of water, that can add up to some savings.
