Divided Shower

The BRS is a shower system that features a transparent tank that divides the shower panel from the washbasin and toilet cistern, back to back. Although this Liteon Awards winning design is intended for water saving means while waiting for your shower water to heat up; I like it for its design layout. The only change I would like to suggest is to have everything on one side, because the back-to-back design limits space usage and will not be feasible for small toilets.

      Nice concept. Both functionally and aesthetically.

      This is not realistic at all.
      Reason 1) Let's say every shower, 5L water is stored in the container and in average 3 people use shower daily (as the family size grows, the number of bathroom increases too). That is 15L water. Is 15L water enough for daily flush and washing hand? Keep in mind that each flush need 5L of water for high efficiency toilets.
      Reason 2) how to keep the water in the container clean for hand washing? Don't tell me I need to UV it everyday.

        whatever dude! this is a fantastic design. Besides, it clearly

      • oelc says:

        just a bit of imagination… is enough some kind of valve that opens when water level goes down to 5L.

        I’m also annoyed about the water being wasted so I use it to water the plants :)

        Reason 1) put it in a one bedroom apartment or hotel, no one claimed this would serve X amount of people, add a senor in the holding tank to keep a minimum amount of water in the tank at all times, user can set amount they need for their day and the shower automatically keeps the water at that level. Reason 2) do you UV the water that comes in from your sink after sitting in the pipes in your house and the ground every day?

      This is a great planet saving idea.I've always been annoyed about how much water is wasted waiting for the right temperature.Maybe something similar could bee designed for the kitchen too.

      @andy,
      The product description says that the sink and the toilet use the stored water first and switch to normal water source when the container is empty…so the first reason is invalid. Yeah, keeping the container clean might be a problem though.

      Anyway, an awesome design.

      Looks cool as a 3D rendering but in the real world this will look like hell after just a few weeks.

      That rectangular shower head looks like it’s completely non-adjustable, which would drive me nuts!

      This is unsanitary, who wants to wash their face/hands/etc with water that's rinsed through the same place they bathe!

      Sure, it's fine for flushing a toilet but even then bacteria from the shower would breed.

      This is just unsanitary and a bad idea. Though it's aesthetically lovely.

      • Anon says:

        You obviously did not read the description at all. The water stored is not the water used to clean yourself. It is water that would normally be wasted by letting the shower run waiting for the water temperature to rise. Read before complaining.

        This is a beautiful design.

      Did everyone miss the part where it switches the toilet and the sink back to normal water source when the tank is empty?

    • b.b.rodrigues says:

      – The tank will have to be cleaned like an aquarium pretty often to avoid staining
      – Even if half a liter of hot water is going too be used, we will have to wait for all the water in the tank to heat up (loss of time and more importantly energy)
      – If the water in the tank is already warm, we will need to wait a long time and spend a lot of energy to get it back cold if we need cold water.
      – The whole concept will look much more dull without the wave effect that is to be seen in the renderings
      – The weakest part of the concept is that it will be wasting much more energy while claiming to waste less water.
      + Nevertheless it's an idea that has the potential to be developed for common use and is aesthetically pleasing. It deserves a credit for that.

    • Why is the water never level? Is this thing on rockers?

    • bailey says:

      15L will give you 2 flushes… but a normal 30-minute shower uses 456 liters. 456 liters would get u 81 flushes. If u only use 5L a shower, kudos to you! thats only 1.4 gallons!
      also, you dont need 100% clean water for hand-washing. thats what soap is for. you’ll be fine. this is an AMAZING design for practical conservative families. for wasteful families that need clean water for hand washing and flushing, this is not for them. clean water is running out. would u rather waste clean water for your hands and not drink any, or wash hands like a human being and drink water free of pathogens? your choice.

    • bailey says:

      I did miss that. so its not as water- conservative as it says. its just as bad as a normal bathroom if you dont take a shower first thing? that sucks.

    • Really love this web site, great information here, was actually a little sceptical in regards to purchasing a steam shower unit for
      our house however, the content here sorted my head out,
      wonderful many thanks

    • Clifton says:

      Was initially in actual fact trying to find just an average shower
      enclosures when I discovered this site, did not even know there were such a thing as a ‘steam shower enclosure’, wow, might possibly just may have to
      buy one

    • Looked over this incredible website and decided to buy a steam shower and never gazed back again,
      quality info on this website cannot say thank you enough

    • Really like these steam showers
