Problem Statement

How might we reduce water usage in households?


Customer / Problem

Our customers are people living in rural communities with severe water restrictions. These communities rely on water for farming and gardening as well as for their household needs. Due to drought, their livelihoods are challenged by water shortages. Having a way to conserve water usage and reuse water would be really helpful. 


Solution

Our solution is to design a water-saving shower and underground water pipes that lead to a reservoir tank to water flowers and veggie patches. Re Water shower has a timer set on the taps which you can program so that after a certain amount of time the shower automatically turns off. The used water is drained into a container with a filter and cleaner. When the water is filtered, it flows into the reservoir tank ready for watering gardens and veggie patches.

50% of the money from sales will go to Drought Angels to support more water-related projects in rural communities.
