You are seriously wasting water. Even in times of drought, you are wasting water and there is nothing you can do about it!
Or is there?
Every time you turn on your hot water faucet (or tap), you are wasting water! This obviously happens in the your kitchen and when you shower…. and you can’t do a thing about it… clean drinking water, down the drain…
UNTIL NOW (of course!)
One of the categories that Unwired mind has is making a difference with minimal life affect. Honestly, we all don’t want to be bothered by overtly making a difference in the world in our day-to-day lives.
There are two solutions for this… the first one is to get some re-plumbing… but once done, it is done and you can forget about it!
If it is easy for you to do… you can get an awesome valve that your local plumber could put in for you in some of your taps…
There is this little valve you can have installed and potentially piped into say… a rain water system and used to water plants… or even collected for drinking! I guess it really depends on how much you want to spend…
The valve is sold here
The site says this:
With the Enviro Save Water System, every time you turn on a hot tap, water in the hot water line passes through the thermal valve.
The initial flow of water, which has cooled in the lines, is diverted back into the cold water lines and stored (either in a pressure tank [System A] or a rainwater or other suitable container [System B]) for reuse.
When water arrives at the correct temperature the thermal valve switches, directing the hot water immediately to the spout or shower rose. The first drop of hot water out is at the right temperature, and the cooled water is automatically saved.
Sounds great! I think I can install at least two of these off the top of my head.
The 2nd solution impacts your life a tiny bit…
They are these plastic bags that you fill until hot water comes. Then you go on with what you are doing.
Now you can use any strong bag you like or even a bucket! But these little bags are great as the design enables you to hang it over your shoulder and there is even a water spout!
As with many products on Indiegogo, there are pictures of kids and the product. This is usually disarming and make you more open to the product… but hey… we are human and easily manipulated… um sorry… FOCUS on the product Felix!
Anyway, sounds like a great product… and here is the link!
While this is pretty cool, if you don’t want to spend the cash, buy a couple of buckets.
Which one is better for your life?
