Waterpebble

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Product Design / Home / 2010

A world first, Waterpebble is a revolutionary device designed to take the effort out of saving water. Paul Priestman, director of design company Priestmangoode, was inspired by a sign in a hotel bathroom asking him to ‘use water sparingly’. He started developing the concept on his return home. The clever device monitors water going down the plug hole when you shower. Memorising your first shower and using it as a benchmark, Waterpebble then indicates, via a series of ‘traffic lights’ flashing gently from green through to red, when to finish showering. Waterpebble also automatically and fractionally reduces your shower time each time you shower, helping you save water.
