The Aqueduct LED bathroom faucet from Altmans takes the guess work out of handwashing. The self-powered, 1-1/2 gpm faucet features LEDs that sense water temperature and generate colored light appropriately. Red signals hot, blue signals cold, and purple indicates a warm water temperature. The faucet is constructed of low-lead brass. altmansproducts.com
