how can u wash ur hand using exactly a liter of water? well, check tis out!

1ℓimit faucet looks more like an elegant test tube inverted on top of a tap. The glass tube holds exactly one liter of water, sufficient for a quick handwash. The theory being that we waste almost six liters of water and use only one, while washing hands. Once the stored one-liter is used up, you have to turn-off the tap till the next one liter fills up the tube. A cumbersome rationing process that will hopefully drive home the point of conservation!

low flow shower-head

i just recently installed a low flow shower-head that delivers a maximum of 2.5 gallons per minute! water saving intervention indeed! accordingly it uses just 1.75 gallons/minute @ 60 psi: it conserves water, saving 30-70% vs. traditional shower-heads.

Oxygenics Five Star Resort Spa water saving shower

Using the same principle as a jet engine, the Oxygenics Body Spa showerhead continually draws in fresh oxygenated air through 16 intake ports and infuses it into the filtered water, creating a powerful oxygenating spray of revitalizing oxygen enriched water. Oxygenics  increases the water’s oxygen content up to ten times, helping to enrich your shower water, and leaving your skin and hair cleaner than ever before.

The Oxygenics Five Star Spa Resort showerheads never clogs up or needs cleaning and are designed to work as well in 20 years as it does when new.

wow! cool eh?

according to a military guy….

Get wet in shower for just 10 seconds max. Turn off and lather up properly for two minutes to get clean. Shower 20 seconds max, to rinse off.

Avoids the scenario where most people expect the water to wash off dirt. Only contact provides sufficient skin oil solubility via mixing and kinetic energy to dislodge dirt. And 99.9% of water molecules never touch the skin .

The Thirty second shower surely saves precious potable water.

pls. be reminded that military pple have short hairs….no wonder they can rinse shampoo easily….installing low flow shower heads can do d trick…they consume less water so you can shower more than 30 seconds!
