Water Widget

Water-saving device for shower


An affordable device requiring no external power source to save water.

It has the function of reducing water usage and energy consumption in showering applications without diminishing the users' experience. Applying the Venturi effect, the water flow induces a negative pressure in the device causing air to be entrained in the flow via a small orifice located in the device housing. The effect of diluting the water flow with air is to reduce the volume of water passing through the device without limiting the efficiency of its cleaning function.
