    This is really exciting. I'd like to know if you plan on doing anything about collecting water that goes down drains during a shower. I think there's potential to recycle- but I'm not a designer. I'd love to know what your thoughts are on collecting water. Because I love the idea of rain barrels, for example- but I've never seen the same thing done for faucets or shower heads.

      Hi!

      Actually, Recycling water from drains is already being done (I think it's called-gray water system). The problem is people have yet to market it, it sounds complicated and for some the cost is too high (considering water is not very expensive).

      I think down the line that's something that I will take on, my goal would be to, bring cost down while increasing efficiency. The hard part is getting people interested and being patient enough to see the idea take years to catch on. Right now I'm hoping to make Luka work out for 2 reason: save water and shift peoples attitude towards our limited resources.

        Great idea! Good luck in this project. Perhaps it would help to post a video of your device working- and do a comparison of how much water it saves vs. a regular faucet?
