Faucet Aerator FAQS

How do I determine the size of the aerator?

With the help of a nickel and dime, you can easily determine the size of your aerator. First remove the insert and washer from the inside of the aerator. Set a nickel on top of the aerator, and if it’s almost the same circumference, the aerator is a regular size. If it’s not a regular size aerator, use a dime. The dime will fit inside a junior size aerator and will sit on top of a tom thumb size aerator.

Pick the stream that’s right for you.

Spray Stream is used to produce a miniature shower pattern and provides full coverage of hands during washing. Similar to the laminar stream, it is non-aerated and restricts the flow of water. Suggested for use in public lavatories.

Laminar Stream produces a non-aerated water stream ideal for high flow applications or health care facilities with a beautiful crystal clear, non-splashing stream.

Aerated/Bubble Stream mixes air into the water. It produces a larger, whiter stream that is soft to the touch and non-splashing. This stream is usually the choice for residential faucets.

How do I measure water pressure?

To measure pressure you’ll want to get a pressure gauge with a hose bib adapter. After the gauge is screwed on, turn on the water supply and read what the PSI is. Measure pressure from a city water or reclaimed water source in the same manner as the pump, simply connect the pressure gauge to a hose, turn on and read. Measuring flow from a city water or reclaimed water source will be similar to measuring flow from a pump. If you have any questions you can always call your local public works or water authority to ask them the available flow and pressure (when on public water system – not a well).
