Water saving set for the bathroom

The morning shower is usually a race against the clock, as I have to do everything in a hurry and get to work in time. However, most of the times I have to wait for at least five minutes with the hot water running because the hot water is not hot at this hour, but barely warm. So I have to wait until enough water goes through the plumbing and finally the hot water arrives at destination. But I am bothered both by the waiting and also by the fact that I waste a lot of water until I get to shower. Well, apparently there are more people bothered by this thing, so they try to find some innovative solution that will allow us to save all the water that goes down the drain.

There is this smart guy named Frank Guo who designed the award-winning Bathroom Recycle System, the gadget that I intend to present to you at the moment. Well, the basic idea of this project is that you can place the toilet, the shower and the sink . This way the water that keeps running until it becomes hot will not be wasted, but used for supplying the toilet and the sink. This is possible thanks to the common tank that is split in two.

The design of the set is minimalist , but very effective and innovative. Plus, it helps you save some good money, too and also to be “green”, as you will use less water. Pretty cool, but I wonder how much that costs or if you can make it by yourself.
