DualWaterSystem / concept for using water


Using water without using it up at the same time? - While taking a shower, washing hands etc. trickles off a lot of water „unused, because just once used“.
The DualWaterSystem offers for this problem a circulation to catch the water und reuse it again and again.
Its a concept to use water in an intelligent way in households. All units like shower, clothes washer, dishwasher and washbasins have their own water tank.
With the help of those circulates the water all the time between using and recycling. The tank on its own get recycled regularly with a kind of a refund system.
