Plug this device onto your shower and never waste water in the home again
If you're looking to save money on that water bill that always seems a little too high for you liking, then we have the perfect bit of home tech for you. This is the FloSTEM from 3form Design.
The golf ball sized device uses a tiny, inbuilt gearbox that enables you to easily control and monitor your domestic water consumption without the need for expensive smart devices or apps. It simply fits on your taps or shower head and can help you shave pounds of your next utility bill.
Essentially a ‘fit and forget’ device, FloSTEM can be easily fitted between a shower-head and shower, or a tap and a hose pipe, and enables you to monitor you water usage in ‘packets’ of 45L. When 45L of water has passed through the device it shuts off until the you press a button on the side to start the water flowing again.
The FloSTEM certainly has a lot of potential, especially if you think you're using too much water at home, however there's no word on a price or a solid release date just yet.
