Intelligent Hose

Knowledge is a powerful tool and it empowers you to make better choices. Like we all know that while washing our car or hosing the lawn we should use minimum water. My question is how do we derive what is minimal when we don’t know exactly how much we consume. We use 80-100 gallons of water per day; now this is real figure to work on and make amends to. Likewise the Measuring Consumption water sprayer displays how much water is consumed during your watering/washing activities; urging you to be a conscious consumer.

    nice idea (and it looks gorgeous). I really like the idea of a adjustment switch as ive only experienced a trigger system with hoses like that which doesn’t give you much control in the respect (though granted they would probably be a lot cheaper than this one). Good work!

  • The husband & I have made a sort of “Frankenhose” with a flow adjustor and a spray nozzle, but the two don't like to be joined and there is often much dripping and soaking of clothing.

    I like this idea MUCH better!

  • I’d be afraid to set this beautiful thing down on the ground while washing my car for fear of scuffing the shiny plastic finish.

    Could easily be replaced by a flow meter at the spigot with a cheap-o adjustable spray nozzle that I wouldn’t mind dropping on the ground (like the one I currently use).

    it looks great, i think it has more uses than just the car washing

      The car washing was just an example. The design of this feels more like an in-home product than a utilitarian outdoor product, was my point.

    Sounds like award bait, and not much else. Personally, I’ve found the automatic shutoff timer valves to be much more useful than this meter would be. We just set the water for the garden for 15 minutes, then head on our way.

    Now isn’t that just a fine idea.I’m surprised there aren’t more types of meters for your hose.
