NASA Inspired Shower Recycles Water In Real Time

Stop wasting water with this NASA inspired shower. via builder online.

Showers account for a third of a person’s average water use, with the typical 10-minute shower gushing nearly 40 gallons of water. But a new concept by Swedish company Orbital Systems aims to cut that volume down to roughly 1.5 gallons.

The Orbital Systems shower design collects the used water in a basin, purifies it to drinking-level standards, and puts it back through the shower head to be reused during the same shower. Not only does the closed-loop system reduce water use, it can cut energy use by 80 percent since the recycled water doesn’t need much reheating to maintain its temperature.
