Hydroelectric Drain / hydroelectric power system

Hydroelectric Drain

The water we used everyday flow down through the pipes. These flowing waste water generate energy. But they only go into the city drainage system without being noticed. This design make the use of the water in drainage pipes to accumulate the power.
First idea is the design of a small household appliances that can connect to a water pipe. It is itself part of the pipeline. Waste water create electricity to get the phone, battery or torch charged. Second is to create a large-scale equipment for the building. So that all waste water can accumulate together to create electricity.
