Eco Loop Showers

Retrofit showering solution preventing water and energy waste

Identification

Currently, 11% of EU territory has a serious water scarcity problem, and our overconsumption of water increases drought frequency by 20–25%. Households and service industries use 12.9% of all EU freshwater, accounting for 144 liters of water per person per day. This is 3 times the basic human water needs. Showering takes 80% of our household hot water and 31% of our total household water consumption – meaning that our showers alone account for 3% of EU energy consumption and 4% of EU freshwater consumption. Within this, we have also seen a doubling of the water used for showering over the past 30yrs. This is wasteful. In addition, this problem is exacerbated when we waste hot water. Flow Loop's Eco Loop Shower is a retrofittable water recirculation shower. Instead of letting all the warm water go to waste down the drain, Eco Loop recovers it from the floor and passes it through the filtration system, before recirculating it to your shower head cleaner than before and with 50% higher flow - while adding just a little bit of warm water to keep the temperature comfortable. This way the Eco Loop Shower enables households to save both water and energy without compromising the comfort of the experience
