Carbon-dependency, de-forestation, climate change—on this Earth Day, there's certainly no shortage of global crises to address. On a more manageable scale, the Water Pebble can help keep your water usage in check. Placed near the drain, it takes a baseline measurement of the duration of your shower and the volume of water consumed. For all subsequent showers, the Pebble not only signals [via a yellow light] the half-way point of the cleansing routine, but also automatically shortens the length of the shower.
