Waterpebble tracks water used

I’m one of the many who’s a bit notorious for just letting too much water go down the drain.  It’s not that I mean to, it’s just when I’m half awake in the morning, I’m not that worried about water consumption.  If you’re not ready for a device that just shuts off the water when you’ve used too much, then this Waterpebble is a nice happy medium.  Instead it goes for a subtle approach.

It has 3 different shades of lights, one is green, then there is red and yellow.  You can pretty much guess which colors mean what.  The red means you need to get your tail out of the shower, the yellow means you should speed things up a bit and the green means you’re in the clear.  It sits right next to your drain and just keeps track of how much water goes down it.  Right now this is a concept design by Paul Priestman.

  1. This is kind of pointless.

    If you’re in the shower too long, the water gets cold. That’s how you know you’ve been in the shower too long, you don’t need a light.

  2. @Nick

    not if you live in an appartment and have pretty much “unlimited” hot water.

    but also just knowing how much water we waste every day would probably solve the problem.

  3. I would really like one, (or many) of these. I am an environmental science major at Portland State University and think this is a really good thing. Please let me know if i can purchase any of these!

  4. Or you could just pay attention to your water bill which tells you exactly how much water you’re using. Though I suppose this would help for knowing how much you used in the shower alone.

  5. Or the more simple and cost effective approach to saving water. Don’t shower for an hour. I fail to see how people need a product to tell them that water is being wasted.

  6. I don’t understand you environmentalists are so hung up on saving water. Haven’t you ever heard of the water cycle.
