This faucet aerator is a great introduction into water saving. The flow rate is 1.0 GPM (Gallons per Minute) which means that you can save A LOT
You also get the ability to limit the amount of water when you’re soaking up your dishes and then let the water flow out at its full rate when you’re ready to rinse them off.
Thanks to this you can maximize your water savings when your washing dishes.

Steps to replace your aerators:
Installing faucet aerators on bathroom, kitchen and laundry faucets can cut their water use by 30 percent without compromising water flow and is the easiest plumbing repair in the book.
Turn off the water supply to the faucet or really you may just make sure the faucet handle(s) are in the close position which should be good enough
Unscrew your current aerator by turning it counter-clockwise. If you need to use a wrench, make sure to protect your faucet with tape or a rag so it doesn’t get scratched. Clean the threads of the faucet spout with a cloth. If your old faucet aerator does not unscrew, consider investing in a new faucet. You will most likely still be able to use this .5 gpm aerator on the new faucet since most faucets do not come with this low of a flow out of the box. You will soon make up the cost of the new faucet with savings on your water bill.
Twist the new aerator clockwise into place. Avoid using a wrench that could scratch the new aerator and faucet.
What a snap-congrats you’re on your way to saving water immediately
