Orbital Systems is developing a new household shower that recycles any water that goes down the drain by purifying it and sending it back to the shower head
To recycle the water coming out of it, a sophisticated filtering system and pump is fitted directly beneath the shower drain in the floor
Instead of a set of knobs like in most showers, the current model of the OrbSys Shower has a touchscreen embedded in the wall
As the soapy, used water flows into the drain, it's immediately purified and pumped right back into the shower to be re-used again and again
According to the company, running an average shower for ten minutes consumes approximately 150 L (39.6 gal) of water, whereas its recycling shower consumes only 5 L (1.3 gal)
A Swedish technology company called Orbital Systems is tackling the issue of water conservation with a new household shower that purifies any water that goes down the drain and sends it back to the shower head. By the company's estimations, its closed-loop system could retain over 90 percent of the water and 80 percent of the energy consumed by an ordinary shower.
