The Faucet Friend helps users avoid being scalded when using kitchen or bath faucets. It is an inexpensive one-piece retrofit attachment; once installed no other modifications or adjustments are needed. The attachment turns from blue to red as the water temperature rises over a set temperature with the use of thermochromic ink applied by screen printing. Attached by anyone with normal hand strength.
