I find myself thinking of a lot of things when I shower. It’s one of those times in my day where I can just, you know, be alone and reflect on the day ahead (when it’s early morning) or the day that was (when it’s late at night.)
Long showers may be good for you, in the hygienic and therapeutic sense. But when a water shortage is upon your region, taking extremely long showers (and using a lot of water in the process) might not be a very good idea.
After seeing a sign that read “Please use water sparingly” in a hotel room, Paul Priestman developed the WaterPebble.
What the WaterPebble does is monitor the amount of water that’s going down the drain. It takes note of the amount of water you used when you first showered with it and uses this as the benchmark for the rest of your showers – so make sure you shower just right the first time you use it.
For your subsequent showers, the WaterPebble will then flash from green to yellow to red like a traffic light to signal when it’s time for you to wrap your bath up. It will fractionally reduce your shower with each use, so you will slowly work your way to using less water each time.
