As I was just washing my hands, I noticed that the sink water comes
out bubbly. I've used a few over the years, where the water came out
Other than the "savings" from lower flow, is there any other advantage
to bubbly water for hand washing. Instead of clear water?
Would it work as well if I had a simple non-aerating faucet which
delievered clear water?

You can\'t shout down a troll.
Pretty much the same with or with out the bubbles. However it does
reduce splashing, breaks up the surface tension a little and does save a
little water. Really those are all good things. Why do you want to change
What? Are you sayin' I'm not a man because I like the aerator? I'd make
some comment about my wife thinking I was gay when we first me, but
that might be crossing a line... ;-D
What I DO hate about aerators is that they get clogged quite easily by
debris in the water line. Living in a hard water area, I get lots of
calcium deposits in the hot water line that throw tiny little black
chips which build up and clog the faucet. About every other month I
take the aerator off the faucets in the house and clean out the
"stones" (as my wife likes to call 'em).
If you like aerators, you lack testosterone, and thus you are NOT a
man. Your wife is probably right, YOU ARE GAY !!!!
(Sorry, I knew this would hurt).
Be a MAN, remove the sucker......
Your balls will firm up and your dick will grow at least 4 inches
The bad part is that your wife will probaly leave you, and you wont be
able to use your new dick and balls !!!! :)
By making the opening "smaller", you get less water at the same pressure.
Put your thumb over the end of a garden hose so most of the stream is
blocked. The water pressure coming out is a lot higher, but there is
actually less water coming out.
Aerators restrict the flow ....... which does actually maintain the water
pressure IN THE STSTEM>>NOT AT YOUR HANDS YOU IDIOT! and air is introduced
to reduce the amount of water consumed ...Please fully comprehend what you
are reading! Jimi
A) Then they should say that. What do I care about the pressure in
the system? I care about the water I'm using. And it's nonsense
anyhow. If not having an aerator would decrease the pressure in the
system, then having an aerator that decreased the water flow by 50%
would still decrease the water in the system by 50% of the amount it
decreased without the aerator.
In the average home, how many people and devices are using water at
the same time? I don't know, but I've never heard anyone say they
have a shortage of water or water pressure when others are using the
sink. Whether there are aerators or not.
What's wrong with you?
I'm glad to see that you noticed that one could make a distinction
between in the system and at your hands, but after that, you lost
control. I seem to understand it better than you do.
Is it just me, or does the subject and the season somehow just make
you want to sing?
Aerators on faucets
and whiskers on kittens....
Mugs of hot cocoa
and warm dried out mittens
These are a few of my favorite things!
