Shower Head Optimizes Water Usage

Nebia’s advanced nozzle technology atomizes a normal solid stream of water into millions of little droplets that significantly reduce water use, while enhancing comfort.

Nebia is a meticulously crafted showerhead that uses advanced technology to atomize a stream of water and turn it into tiny droplets. Developed with the same software used to study jet engines, the array of atomizing nozzles increases comfort and is up to 13 times more efficient than a regular shower, using 70% less water, according to Nebia. Compared to other water-saving shower systems, Nebia’s technology saves water by multiplying droplets directly from the showerhead rather than recycling the water going through the whole shower unit.

The showerhead can be installed without the need for contractors and plumbers and without breaking tiles. The company has tested prototypes, secured crowdfunding from more than 8,000 backers, and is currently producing showerheads to be shipped to the first backers by the end of 2016.

Relevance of solution

Showering accounts for nearly 17% of residential indoor water use in USA, and installing more efficient showerheads can provide massive savings on water, benefitting both the environment and reducing utility bills.1 By establishing an entirely new standard in water use, Nebia saves water without compromising comfort.

Triple Bottom Line

Environmental

According to a study done by the company, an average American household of four using a Nebia showerhead can save 80,000 liters of water annually.

Social

The showerhead is easily mounted to the wall and does not require exchanging the entire shower unit.

Economic

For the average American home, Nebia provides a return on investment within less than two years because of water and electricity savings, according to the company.
