As we head into winter (in the northern hemisphere, anyway) one of the hardest things to do in the morning is get out of a hot, relaxing shower. Actually shutting off the hot water and facing the chilly air is…well, tough. However, for those of us in need of help, there is the Eco Showerdrop.Acting as both a water measurer and timer, the ECO Showerdrop is programmable so once you hit the water limit you’ve set for yourself, like a good friend - or a Water Watcher - it beeps at you until you quit. If you keep showering, the device calculates how much water you’re using until you’re guilted out of the shower.
The extra cool part is it can be made specific to your shower. Different showers use different amounts of water. The Eco Showerdrop can read how much water your specific showerhead is releasing. So…a water saver shower head means longer showers.
Currently for sale in the UK, it runs about $20-$24 and works universally on all showers.
