The most elegant solution to saving all your shower water developed by students from Stellenbosch University.
The City of Cape Town is in a serious drought. Level 6B water restrictions are in place and a lot of effort is being done by members of the public to save the little that is left in our dams. All over the city you can see the effects on gardens, unwashed cars, the massive increase in water levies, and the trucks full of JoJo tanks. We need to save all the water we can to push back Day Zero when the city supply will officially run dry.
As over 50% of the average household water use goes to showering and flushing toilets, this seems like a good place to start.
About the product
A waterproof PVC canvas sheet is threaded through stainless steel eyelets with high quality braided poly rope in a way to lift up the edges of the sheet and form a flexible bowl that will conform to any shower floor. We call it DROPSTOP.
Due to the wide base, it catches all the water from the shower unlike trying to fill the shower up with multiple buckets. It can even be used to lift water out of a bathtub in one fell swoop instead of multiple small scoops.
It’s very simple to use since lifting the device by the rope causes a neck to form at the top, capturing the water into a bag that’s easy to carry and pour out.
DROPSTOP is easy to fold and store, taking up as much space as a folded newspaper and can be used for various other applications such as leaking roofs, dripping laundry, or defrosting a freezer, multiple uses while camping, or even just for catching some rain.
