Simplest way to Save Water in the World

Problem Statement:

Even today  – A water tap is a poorly designed product.

Generally, water taps are flowing with high volume of water than required.

 water tap throwing more water

Water tap with high flow

 water_tap with required wate

Water tap with required flow

If Water Tap turned to max speed then

                 If Water Volume in one minute is greater than 6 liters then

                                    Water tap has a defect.

Objective:

Water tap should not flow more than 6 liter water in a minute. Thus saving water. Continue reading

Global Water Crisis //Part 3 (Solution: Four Marble Theory for saving water)

Water is life. Let’s give another attempt to solve a commonly known problem: Global Water Crisis //Part 3 (Solution: Four Marble Theory for saving water)

Generally, a tap at wash basin is turned high for the hand wash. It is hard for anyone to tell, please slow down the water flow. There are knobs at the bottom of all the wash basin which
can be rotated to slow down the flow of the water. It may be a good way to save water, however, some people won’t like it. Some people may argue for not adapting to it.

I see an observation. While hand wash if there is something struck on the outlet of the wash basin, water starts collecting in the wash basin. Seeing the level of water going up in the
wash basin, the person moves the tap to slow down the water flow. This action is a reflex action. It means the person is doing it involuntarily and there is no thought on saving water. But
it saves water. How about utilizing this reflex for saving the water.

Lets keep four marbles in the wash basin outlet. These four marbles will level up the water in the wash basin. The person will slow down the water and that’s where it will save the water. I call this solution as Four Marbles Theory for saving water. Instead of marbles, non soluble stones can be used, but I used here marbles as it good looks.

It may reduce water wastage by near to half at the wash basin.

Let me tell you a real story that may support the practicality of this theory.

Once upon a time, few senior executives of a company sat together to find how they can increase the sale of their product – Toothpaste.

A peon came to serve the tea to all the executives and understood on what they are talking. He made his thought, and said, “How about widening of nozzle/cap of the toothpaste tube?”.
This idea was disregarded by the executives. They then keep on brainstorming to find the solution. Do you know what was concluded? The idea given by the peon. It was implemented by the company and sales was up for the product. This happened in the commercial market of India.

In case, you share it on facebook and let me know the concluded response in the comments section. You can also enter your thoughts in the comments. In case you see this theory don’t work, you have to find what change will make it a success. thanks.

Global Water Crisis //Part 1

Water is life. Let’s attempt to solve a commonly known problem: Global Water Crisis //Part 1

Water tap is a poorly designed product. It runs unnecessarily and wastes water. It is difficult to manage water tap when both the hands are busy washing each other. Also, water tap does not allow cleaning hands. The person opens the tap with dirty hands, wash it with soap, and then closing the tap means dirt from tap can again come back to the cleaned hands. The two problems are addressed with motion sensitive taps. It may be liked by many but it again does not meet requirement of common man. The pricing of the technology is far difficult to manage for the common man. So, there is a need to design simple product and at the price where common man can manage.

Look at the Tailor’s sewing machine in your near market. The tailor sits on a chair, and then use his feet to manage the mechanics of sewing machine. Hands are free from managing the mechanics and sewing the cloth becomes much easier. Similarly, now think for making a wash basin. The person sits on a chair, and then uses his feet to manage the flow of water from the tap; uses one feet for controlling the soap dispenser. Hands are free from managing the water tap and soap dispenser. Now, Hand wash with soap becomes much easier and hygienic. This product design will not only meet the objective but will extend many other benefits –

1)    Water is not wasted.

2)    Hands are not touched to tap

3)    Hands are not touched to soap dispenser

4)    Highest hygiene

5)    Better wellbeing

6)    Pricing of the product for the common man etc

Let’s be practical. The design needs a prototype (working model) and rather designing it and showing it, it was thought to find something similar to it on the internet. Luckily, it was available on Internet. The paddle based hand wash is designed and is in use in Africa.  The product might miss patenting the design and so could not went into our homes.

The existing product is a prototype and is working as a success. The existing product can be improved with the mechanics of sewing machine. This new product will definitely solve the commonly known problem: Global Water Crisis and do much more. Don’t you think so?
