One watersaver can change everything

Updated: May 5

Almost six months back, when Cognizant Chennai called us for a demo, we were all excited, and we only had one product at that time (Quamist). We showed our demo, and the building maintenance representative was delighted. We gave them a couple of samples and asked to test them out. My colleague and I were happy that they even called us for a demo ( It was a great deal for us at that time). After a week, when I was in Delhi, I got a call saying that the employees were removing or altering the position of the cap, and they can’t implement Quamist. The challenge was to come up with a water saver design that is tamper-proof and can be used in public places. My product designer and I worked day and night and came up with a new model within 3 days, and I submitted this deck to them, and they accepted our product. That’s how Ecomist was brought to life. Our initial only goal was to design a tamper-proof model that’d save 95% water, over time, we realized EcoMist has more USPs than just saving water. They are

After a week, when I was in Delhi, I got a call saying that the employees were removing or altering the position of the cap, and they can’t implement Quamist. The challenge was to come up with a water saver design that is tamper-proof and can be used in public places. My product designer and I worked day and night and came up with a new model within 3 days, and I submitted this deck to them, and they accepted our product. That’s how Ecomist was brought to life. Our initial only goal was to design a tamper-proof model that’d save 95% water, over time, we realized EcoMist has more USPs than just saving water. They are


1. You save 95% of the water every time you wash your hands.

A regular tap would give around 12 liters of water per minute. Water-saving aerators provide more than 6 liters of water per minute. Extreme water-saving nozzles give up to 3 liters of water per minute. EcoMist only gives 450 – 550 Ml water per minute. How? It converts normal water flow into a gentle mist by atomization. By doing that, we get an effective handwash, and you save more than 95%water compared to a conventional aerator.


2. You get a better hand wash.

Every time we wash our hands, only one layer cleans our hands. The rest goes down in the drain unused. By atomizing water, only one coat is formed over the surface ( Your side), and this water is more than enough to wash your hands without compromising on the washing experience. In conventional aerators, you’d have to reach your hands to the point of contact (Water). With Ecomist installed, there is an increase in the surface area, A cloud is formed below the tap, and it’s a more ergonomic way of washing your hands. More than that, it’s a more effective way to wash your hands as well. Hence by using Ecomist, you’d get a better grip wash as well as an effective one. By using EcoMist, every drop that comes out of the tap will touch your hands.


3. You get back the money that you have invested in the product.

Comparing it with the flow from a standard tap, Ecomist saves more than 95% water. In commercial places, water is a commodity, and people buy water. You save not only 95% water but also the energy that is used to transport this water form one place to another. By conserving all of them, Ecomist clearly becomes an investment, not an expense. You save both financial wise and earth-wise.


4. You save not only water but also energy.

You not only save 95% water, but you also avoid the energy required to transport them from one point to another. You keep the fuel that is necessary to carry this water by a commercial vehicle. You also save the energy used by the pump to transport the water. You keep the energy used by the booster pump/Pressure pump as the consumption is reduced by 95%. Summarizing this, Ecomist minimizes the building’s carbon footprint. You might not realize it, but over time, one device could save more than 30,000 liters of water per year, and if it’s a commercial space, lakhs of liters can be saved from going down the drain as waste.


5. You achieve your sustainability goals.

Changing all your taps to ecomist would create a significant impact on the sustainability of your building. Ecomist decrease your water consumption and saves you electricity as well. There would be a massive leap on your premise’s sustainability goals and targets. You set an example. We believe Ecomist is the future of the hand wash experience. We’re fortunate to have a lot of great companies like Google, Accenture, Cognizant and more to accept ecomist and install them in all their facilities. They are not just saving water or doing everything that we have mentioned above. More than that, they are setting an example. An example to all the others in the world that we can do something small to create change. That’s what ecomist is all about.


Conclusion

The biggest challenge for this product is its acceptance, People are used to washing their hands from taps with water gushing out. You would never have to compromise on the washing experience using EcoMist.People who experience this product for the first time get excited and love it, But few people felt that they needed more water. For them, we’d have to change their mindset before changing the faucet. So can one small product change anything? It’s just a simple update for your tap that can change everything, words can’t explain how good Ecomist feels when used. This is just the first step that we attempted and accidentally accomplished. We are continually working on updating this model to make it even more efficient and effective. If people understand how precious water is and start to take small initiatives to conserve them, we can make this world a much better place. Wanna know more? visit www.earthfokus.com
