PENTASH: 5-Minute Shower Control

Water and sanitation

This project aims to reduce unnecessary daily water use. An overly extended shower not only wastes a large amount of water but also increases the risk of skin diseases. This physical interface encourages users to shorten their shower time. The shower control functions both as a push-down switch and a timer. The spring-back mechanism automatically turns off the water every time the shower hits the 5-minute maximum, and allows users to keep track of time during shower. Preserving as much water as we can is a more sustainable practice for both ourselves and our cities.
