Put A Brake In Your Shower

There has been no dearth in designs that harp about water conservation, and adding to the list is the Shower Brake. This one suggests that we kinda allot ourselves a quota, and use that bit only. The water controller sucks in a designated amount of water (when pushed up) that is ideally sufficient for a shower. As the quota depletes, the visual stats of the controller descends at a constant rate, letting you know how much water you used over number of minutes. The time of the shower is directly proportional to the amount of water used.

So basically, you use the various knobs to control the amount of water you use, at a desired pressure and temperature. The sand-clock vibe that it exudes is meant to awaken your eco-water-conservation-consciousness. In short, if you go to crank up the controller again, you should feel guilty of splurging water.

    Great concept, but not every home can accommodate for an overhead shower. Most renovations require retro-fitting to original plumbing. Depending on the country you are planning on marketing this product to, take note of the process of a bathroom renovation – this is important as most people don’t want to spend thousands of dollars trying to re-route plumbing just for one product. However, amazing design… great look and one that would really suit current bathroom trends – if you have the money to burn! 😉

    Question: Does it have to be an exposed rail system? Can it be controlled remotely?
