EcoDrop / EcoDrop


The excess of water spent on the shower results mostly of the lack of information that the user had about his own consumption. This system pretends to fulfil this problem with an app system that informs about the consumption at the real time and about the ideal consumption for each user. First of all the user programs the app considering his own characteristics – gender, hair type, height and weight. While using the wc, the system records liters of water spent and informs the user about the recommend quantity and if it was exceeded. A pedagogic system for the user to have a behavior more eco-efficient during the utilization of water in the wc
