What Is A Spatap?
It was a warm summers day in 2012, at Coolum in Queensland, Australia when Stu Mason was working on his car. He had a bottle of water sitting in the back seat. His hands were really dirty after working on the car so he grabbed the bottle to wash his hands. As he was pouring the water on his hands, he was noticing how much of the water that was being wasted to simply wash his hands.
It was then, he started to think:
What if there was a device, that could dispense the water in such a way, that would just put out enough water to wash my hands and not waste all the water running off my hands?
The Creation of Spatap Began.
Spatap is a food grade, silicon water dispensing device, that uses a shower mode and a tap mode. The Shower Mode has small holes in the bottom of the device that sprinkles water as it is needed, using gravity by squeezing it to push more water out.
The Tap Mode has a bung to the side that when pulled out and squeezed, turns the water into a tap flow, not as much as would flow out of an open bottle, but enough water that pushes more out than in shower mode.
The Spatap has been designed so that it can fit into any bottle size. From a simple 300ml water bottles, to massive 15 litre bottles. The principle is the same. The Spatap, will restrict the flow, so that water is distributed to a sprinkle or a flow, but maximising the use of the water in the bottle.
The videos to the side show both the shower and tap mode and how easily the modes can be changed, as well as the difference in water flow.
The Spatap has 3 inner rings in the spout. These ensure any size bottle is able to fit to the Spatap.
