Aerators

aerators

A faucet aerator attaches to the end of the faucet and mixes air into the stream of water for a smooth flow. You get the same water pressure, but the actual volume is reduced. Using low-flow aerators on all faucets in your home is a simple and inexpensive way to conserve water. Almost all faucets have an aerator, which is located at the tip or end where the water exits. Aerators manufactured in the U.S. after 1994 must have a flow rate of 2.2 gallons per minute (gpm); or less.

To determine the flow rate of your aerator, remove the aerator. You should be able to twist it off by hand or with a wrench. The rated flow should be written on the side of the aerator.

Aerators should be cleaned periodically. Once you have removed the aerator, use a brush to clean the screen and replace the aerator. If there is scale build-up, you can remove this by soaking the aerator in vinegar or lime dissolver. 

If you are a Titusville water customer, you can receive a free 1.5 gpm bathroom faucet aerator by contacting the Water Resources Conservation Office.
