Startup environmental technology corporation has invented and patented hands-free device to control water flow and avoid waste

LOS ANGELES – Eco Products Group (EPG), a startup environmental technology corporation, has invented and developed a hands-free device capable of reducing water use by 50-70%. The Ecofaucet™ product line is arguably the first major innovation in faucets since the Romans invented the screw valve and Delta introduced the ball valve. Using the Ecofaucet™ allows consumers to control water flow hands free to use only the minimum amount of water needed for either bathroom or kitchen sinks.

It is common knowledge that we have a global shortage of clean, fresh, potable water. The situation is rapidly becoming so dire that it can only be a matter of time before we face mandatory restrictions on the amount of water we use on a daily basis for personal hygiene, washing dishes and clothes and flushing toilets. According to a recent article on UPI.com, for example, officials in California are convening a summit of state, local and federal water agency officials in Sacramento this week to discuss a statewide drought.

In the US alone there are approximately 112 million households with an average of 2.6 people per household. Average per-capita use of water through faucets is 10.9 gallons per day; the Ecofaucet™ could therefore conserve around 9,000 gallons per household a year. The Ecofaucet™ system can be retrofit installed for any existing faucet fixture with just pliers, a screwdriver and basic 'handyman' ability.

"I first conceived the idea of a hands-free way to control water, when I observed the amount of water that was being wasted either washing a glass in the kitchen sink, showering, or shaving," says EPG CEO Harmon Houghton. "It was obvious that we needed to find a way to control the flow of water that was hands free - from that point, we had the concept for what would eventually become the Ecofaucet™."

Eco Products Group (EPG) is an environmental technology corporation developing proprietary water conservation products for residential, commercial and institutional buildings. The corporation holds (10) patents and patents pending, including a proprietary cylinder valve that represents the first technical innovation in faucet valve design since Delta introduced the ball valve fifty years ago and the Roman's invented the screw valve.
