Automatic Faucet Shut-Off Valve

** This product is not returnable. It fits a standard size faucet requiring a female thread. If this doesn't fit your faucet you may need to go to your local hardware store for an additional adapter for a proper fit.

For those who have trouble adjusting the water temperature, turning the handles, or who may forget and leave the water running the Automatic Faucet Control is just what the doctor ordered.

This clever and inexpensive device screws right onto the end of your faucet (replacing the existing aerator). A small wand then projects down and any contact with that wand will turn the water on. Just moving your hand away, releases the pressure from the wand and, like magic, shuts off the water. What could be easier?

This Automatic Faucet Shut Off is a Male Thread. Please read the fitting guide below to ensure this thread will work with your tap.



Fitting Guide

The most basic thing you need to know about your faucet in order to add an Anti-Scalding device is the threading - either male or female. If your faucet has threads on the outside, it is male threaded - which means you need to use just the FEMALE threaded component. Conversely, if your faucet has threads on the inside, it is female threaded and you'll need to use the included MALE threaded adapter.

Our Anti-Scald device works on "REGULAR" size plumbing. Typical "REGULAR" size for a faucet aerator is 15/16" male threaded or 55/64" female threaded. Some faucets use a smaller "Tom Thumb" metric-size aerator, which is M18x1 male threaded or M16x1 female threaded. If your faucet or pipe is not "REGULAR" you will need an additional adapter. Before you get out your tape measure, there's a very easy way to tell what size your plumbing is.

Example of faucet sizes

First, take the existing aerator off your faucet - usually these just unscrew, although you may need a wrench if it's on tight. Then grab some spare change from the couch or your rainy day jar, specifically a quarter, a nickel, and a dime. Place the coins over the aerator. If your current aerator is about the size of a quarter, you have a "REGULAR" sized fixture!

If it's about the size of a nickel, you have a "Junior" size aerator. If your aerator is approximately the size of a dime, you have a "Tom Thumb" size aerator. Both "Junior" and Tom Thumb" sizes will need an adapter that you can purchase from the hardware store.

My dad has a habit of leaving the bathroom taps on and has nearly flooded his bathroom twice. This is a life saver in terms of peace of mind, cost savings for sure & no further insurance claims!
