I’m going to tell you about a product, but first I want to get something out of the way, if you have a problem with recycled water, you may have a problem with this device, but I need you to promise me you’ll make it all the way to the bottom of this article before you give up on the idea of it being a good idea.
The Rainstick Shower is a device that promises that you can have your long warm showers while still saving 80% water and 80% energy consumption while still putting out twice as much water as a normal shower. How do they do that? By taking the hot water you just hosed yourself down with and returning it into the system and back onto you.
The water is collected at the base and is then passed through a triple filter system. The first filter layer is to get rid of any larger particles, like hair or debris, in case you work in construction. The second layer filters the water further to remove anything unwanted, like dirt and soap, and the final filter system is a UV light system to remove any bacteria or viruses that might be sent through the system.
Additionally, the system can be turned off and turned on with the touch of a button and does not maintain water from any prior showers, so you won’t be sharing anyone else’s bathwater.
