Taps 26: a weird "lever from aerator" tap

This one is also from a friend visiting Mexico:

This tap is a personal favourite of mine!! It was in a restaurant in Manzanillo and perhaps should have come with instructions!! There is a small lever coming out of the tap (where the water comes out [aerator]) and to turn the tap on you had to push this lever. You also had to keep it pushed to keep the water flowing which meant you needed some pretty fancy finger gymnastics to be able to wash your hands.

Well ... I have no comments :=). The designer of this tap mush have had imagination.

Paul on :

The tap design is creative and the main purpose is to save water. But the design is a little bit inconvenient.

mkljun on :

Couldn't agree more. Especially in public spaces where water consumption can be very high. Although, hindering the design to a level where it is hard for users to wash hands (e.g. http://pim.famnit.upr.si/blog/index.php?/archives/295-Taps-24-separated-push-tap.html) or users have a hard time to figure out how taps work (e.g. http://pim.famnit.upr.si/blog/index.php?/archives/256-Taps-13-confusing-pulling-and-turning.html) is not helpful either. Saving water and still considering users' needs should drive the design - not only the saving bit.
