waterwise / water-saving shower concept


Waterwise is a shower shaped like a tree, which is a symbol for life. It illustrates the value of water by visualising the water use and therefore reducing it. Before showering the amount of water that will be used, has to be defined by turning the reload device. While water is running, the device turns back, always showing how many litres are left.
When the device has reached zero the water turns off. One full reload contains 30 litres, which equals 5 minutes of showering. The user should not be forced to reduce his water consumption but he should become aware of how his water usage and learn in an nice and easy way to reduce it.
