While 70% of the earth is covered in water, less than 1% of it is available for human use. 40 out of 50 USA State water managers expect water shortages in their states over the next decade. Each American uses an average of 100 gallons of water in their home per day and the average household spends as much as $500 per year on their water and sewer bill.

Water conservation is an already important issue that will become more and more pressing as we move into the future. We make faucets, showers, and fixtures (anything that dispenses water) and want to know: what is a cool new way household faucets, showers, and fixtures can conserve water? We are looking for creative new ideas that have never been done before!


Propose a unique, new way for household faucets, showers, and fixtures to conserve water:

1. What is your modification to an existing household faucet/fixture or new product that conserves water?

2. How does it conserve water without sacrificing user experience?

3. (Optional) Sketches, drawings, CAD renderings, mock-ups, charts, videos, graphs or any other visuals that support your idea

Important: We only want new ideas for this challenge, if we can find it easily on Google, it’s best not to submit that concept. Please avoid concepts around gray water tanks and water recycling unless you have a unique new approach.
