What design changes can save water? Can products be designed efficient to save water. For example, Wash basin should be foot controlled and can save water up to 70%. How it can be designed?
This video converted from ppt showcased in Green Week at IIT Delhi held on 22nd Aug 2015. Please share.
This is suggested design for a water bucket that should save water. Estimated 20% water should be saved with such design.
Adding Overflow Marker: A simple red line drawn in circular on the top of the water bucket defines the problem of water wastage on water bucket.
Margin Space left on top level of bucket and overflow marker line is actual and immediate water saved with this design. It may be 1 or 2 litre water that is directly saved.
‘No Overflow’ Label: A simple label but attempts to resolve the problem. It makes user responsible towards water use as well.
Volume Indicator: A simple scale for volume of water at different levels in water bucket. This volume value tells the user every time how much water is being used. The measure of volume helps in analyzing and helps in understanding water significance. It is expected that user will tend to use less water with such volume measure available.
Here, scale in design is not actual measure and may differ with product design.
Business Opportunity: Water Bucket Manufacturers can make more profits with such product design. At the same time, it solves global water crisis problem.
