  1-     Do you have economic taps in your house?
   - No, I donít but I used them before.
 2-     Do you think using economic taps helps in saving water?
   - I donít think they are efficient because with some types water goes on running until it stops by itself even if you donít need it- you cannot control them - and other types send out too little water; this drove me mad and I pulled out the whole tap.
