But so much of our planet’s precious resource is becoming a crisis situation. With California in water crisis mode now and other states soon to follow, we have a couple devices that will help you stay on track with your water usage.

Water Usage

Water Wasted

2 inventors came up with a solution to help water waste when it comes to the toilet and the shower.


Toilet water use can vary significantly. Older toilets can use 3.5, 5, or even up to 7 gallons of water with every flush. Federal plumbing standards now specify that new toilets can only use up to 1.6 gallons per flush (GPF), and there are high efficiency toilets that use up to 1.28 GPF.


The POTTYMISER controls the water at the base of the water intake to prevent any loss of water due to water leaks, toilet chain hook ups and catastrophic failure. Those who live up north know that a frozen toilet is sure to crack and break making a big mess once discovered.

The Shower Wizard

In an average home, showers are typically the third largest water use after toilets and clothes washers. The average American shower uses 17.2 gallons (65.1 liters) and lasts for 8.2 minutes at average flow rate of 2.1 gallons per minute (gpm) (7.9 lpm).

The Shower Wizard will allow you to get your shower taken in 8 minutes thus reducing a lot of water waste! It will give you a 1 minute warning at 7 minutes in with a stop and restart of water pressure. This will give you the time needed to rinse off and be done.

Help save water while saving our planet!
