Countries all over the world are currently in some of the worst drought conditions in history, experiencing “exceptional” drought conditions – the harshest on a five-level scale. Consequences of this high level of drought include: exceptional and widespread crop/pasture losses and shortages of water in reservoirs, streams, and wells, creating water emergencies.
According to the International Water Management Institute, the world can expect more extreme weather and rising numbers in the world’s population, which will dramatically increase a demand for water.
An inventor from Santa Ana, California, has developed a very unique device that will save you water without ruining your shower experience. Called EvaDrop, this device will reduce water usage by up to 50 percent.
This new invention will no doubt revolutionize water conservation and it will help you save big on your monthly water bill.
It has many features, a setting that shuts off water flow prior to you entering the shower. When a desired temperature is reached; a unique sensor system that adjusts the water flow based off your needs and a timer that notifies you when you are taking too long of a shower. It ensures that there is no wasted water before you get in the shower.
It has specialized smartphone app which controls the device, EvaDrop can be calibrated to fit different showers, shower heads and user preferences. The app can also track your water usage, habits and savings; providing you with valuable information that can help you learn and conserve even more.
With data from thousands of EvaDrops feeding into the app, you will be able to compare your usage with other users, as well as track the trends and changes in water consumption of the entire EvaDrop community.
Eva automatically throttles water flow from 0% – 100% and everything in between. Saving water when it’s not needed, while maintaining an enjoyable shower experience.
The average shower is 9 minutes long, using an estimated 19 gallons of water per shower.
– Using Eva can save up to 9.5 gallons/ shower
With 316.1 million people in the U.S., we are averaging 6 billion gallons of shower water per day.
– Eva could save the U.S. 3 billion gallons of water per day
The U.S. uses an average of 2.2 trillion gallons of shower water per year.
– Eva could save the U.S. over a trillion gallons of water every year.
Due to drought, the cost of water has been rising rapidly in the past few years, and is quickly becoming one of a household’s costliest utility bills. Showers are one of the top contributors to a high water bill.
With the average price of water rising and majority of household water waste being in the shower, EvaDrop will be able to pay for itself within a year of use. Presently, the world needs this kind of Innovative solutions which helps in reducing the water waste by using latest technology. (Source: EvaDrop)
