A Drop of Water

November 4, 2009

Here’s a different take on the rain barrel…it looks a little like a pregnant belly but still better looking than a big plain barrel.

‘A Drop of Water’ is a rain barrel that makes saving water really easy by providing a watering can that is automatically filled when it rains. This way, the user doesn’t have to fill the can with our precious tap water, but uses ‘free’ rainwater instead to water the garden.

MOSS SUND Architects and Fig Forty have created the fantastic CISTA Rainwater Harvesting System. The harvesting system provides 100 gallons of rainwater storage within an 8-foot vertical planted frame. Below right is the concept featured at the 2009 Interior Design Show in Toronto…..sure beats the typical barrel collection method!

My garden is no where near my hose, so I thought something like this Rain Barrel from Smith and Hawken would be perfect to set down by the garden and also save on water at the same time. Crafted from high-density polypropylene, this barrel catches and keeps 60 gallons of rain water close at hand for watering chores.

This small, lightweight (just 2.6oz) cap fits on any ‘standard’ water bottle (2” wide mouth) such as Nalgene®, Camelbak®, GSI® and most others, turning your bottle into a solar-powered lantern.

AQUS System

April 23, 2008

Oh this is brilliantly simple….

The AQUS System is an innovative water conservation device. The AQUS system capters water from the sink and filters and disinfects it to be reused for toilet flushing. Tucked inside the vanity below the sink, the AQUS reservoir works in conjunction with standard lavatory pipes and holds up to 5.5 gallons of water that is reused from the sink. A single hose connects the reservoir inside the vanity to the toilet, eliminating the unnecessary use of fresh water.

The Eva Solo Thermo Water Flask is a double-walled thermo flask of stainless steel. It is available in both matt and polished stainless steel

The Falling Water Fountain is a fountain that actually looks nice as opposed to those ugly plastic things that you see everywhere.

Slide Faucet

The Slide Faucet has a top section that functions much the way a dimmer switch does, the more you slide the warmer the water gets.

It’s part of the collection for RVB by Alain Berteau.
