want to plunge into a deeper shade of green?

Do you multitask while you wait for the shower to get hot? Brush your teeth? Make the bed? Maybe even pick out your clothes or iron a collar? Many of us do—and don’t know that while we’re feeding the dog or grabbing that second cup of coffee, two-and-a-half gallons of hot water per minute are funneling down the drain.

That’s where evolve™ showerheads come in. Utilizing the unique, patent-pending ShowerStart™ technology, these showerheads allow you to continue multitasking – only now you’re saving water instead of wasting it.

Evolve showerheads do this by stopping the flow to a trickle when the water reaches a comfortable 95 degrees. This way your hot water’s no longer running down the drain while you’re away from the shower.

Using an evolve showerhead can save a yearly average of 2,700 gallons of water, the fossil-fueled energy it takes to heat it—and up to $75 off your utility bill.

Oxijet air shower reduces water use by 50 percent

Post by dean on Tue Feb 05, 2013 9:26 am

Low-flow shower heads are a good way to save water, but using one can be a bit like showering with a spray bottle. New Zealand company Felton, in collaboration with Australia's Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), has developed the Oxijet – an “air shower” head that injects tiny air bubbles into the water droplets to make the shower feel like it’s at full pressure, yet while using 50 percent less water.

"Traditional flow restrictors reduce flow and pressure, whereas Oxijet uses the flow energy to draw air into the water stream, making the water droplets hollow," Dr. Jie Wu, a fluids specialist at CSIRO said. "This expands the volume of the shower stream, meaning you can save the same amount of water, while still enjoying your shower."

When it comes to sink/urinal combos, the Tandem is Number 1

When it comes to sink/urinal combos, the Tandem is Number 1



Looking at the wall-mounted device, one could be forgiven for thinking that it’s designed to let today’s busy multi-taskers get two things done at once ... but that wouldn’t make sense, not in this case. Instead, the idea is that users will have a sink right there in front of them when they’ve finished widdling. That way, they can’t “forget” to wash their hands, as they might do while making the long trek from a conventional urinal to a separate sink.

On the more practical side, the Tandem saves water by reusing the hand-washing water to rinse out the urinal. Presumably it could also allow bathrooms to be more compact and less expensive to build, as it replaces two appliances with one, and thus requires half as much plumbing to be installed.

The Tandem was created by designer Kaspar Jursons. According to a report on PSFK, it’s currently being manufactured on a small scale, is priced at US$590 per unit, and has already found buyers in Norway, Germany, Russia, Poland, and Latvia.
