DIY: Tap/Faucet Extension

A while ago I noticed the faucet of the bath had a leak. After calling the plumber I used a juice carton box with some thread hanging from the faucet, but since the dropping was quite often (and the carton didn’t have enough capacity for the water), I remembered that while surfing for green inspiration and eco tips, found a website where there was an idea on how to reuse a shampoo bottle to extend the faucet and since my tap is very close to the wall the bucket doesn’t really fit. so with this method I could properly place a bucket underneath so that the water can be stored there and then be reused to flush the toilette or something while the plumber comes and properly fixes the leaking. The tutorial I mentioned originally is to extend the faucet so that kids can reach the water to wash their hands, which is also very convenient!

I found it so satisfactory and great how a big issue (because I noticed there were 10L of water a day wasted with that leaking, 10L!!!) had such an easy temporary solution (I write it in bold because the ideal solution is to fix properly the leaking wherever you find it). So, here are the steps of this super idea. I practically followed the steps from Cheerios & Lattes tutorial:

I hope you find this idea useful and inspiring!
