Three Way Switch

B.Ravi.Kiran, Hyderabad, India

Switch is a connotation for any on-off situation. The switch here works actually three ways but only two conditions are represented.

Any switch generally implies two actions, on or off, and that is how people expect it to work. Any user initially tries to press it to its full extent and switch it off but here that goes into normal water flow mode.

At the extremes are the flow mode and the off position is in the middle. The user has to be really careful about how much pressure he has to apply to get required state. Also the written indication is not very clear to a user.

The attempt was to replace two switches by one to get rid of some extra actions but it fails to do so and adds more complexity.
