SAN FRANSISCO, California – February 1, 2016 – The WUPI Valve, an innovative water utility prevention instrument, was recently announced by Sunday Projects. The WUPI valve is a simple product for a complicated problem, and with it the average household can save 1,300 gallons per year! Every year people waste millions of gallons of water while waiting for the shower or bath to heat up. Part of the problem is structural; many homes have inefficient hot water delivery systems. Part of the problem is behavioral; few people will stand in a cold shower, and even fewer will take the time and effort to collect the water wasted as the shower heats up.
Millions of gallons of clean water flow down the drain as people wait for the right temperature before jumping in to begin that perfect shower or bath. Current studies indicate that waiting for the shower to warm up creates an average of 2.9 gallons of water waste for every shower an individual takes. In one household, the potential waste amounts to nearly 1,059 gallons per year, per shower. The Water Utility Preservation Instrument (WUPI) is designed by property developers and members of the residential construction industry. With the help of engineers, designers, and manufacturers, they set out to develop a new approach to reusing and saving water. To accomplish this goal, they tackle two major problems in residential hot water delivery.
First, stopping structural waste! Hot water delivery is inefficient and wasteful, especially in older homes. Hot water is heated far away from the shower. It is possible to develop and implement a more efficient hot water delivery system, but construction and renovation can be expensive and time-consuming. Also, many solutions involve reheating water which is then recirculated back into the inefficient system. This is a waste of energy. To solve these problems the WUPI is designed to work with any standard showerhead. The WUPI valve mounts at the base of any shower fixture. Best of all, installation is simple. There is no need to purchase a new shower. The WUPI is designed to engage at 80-degrees Fahrenheit. That means as soon as your shower hits the perfect temperature to get in, the water will begin to automatically flow. So no more wasting the cold water as you wait for your shower to heat up and no more having to test the water every 5 seconds to see if its warm. The 80 degree start point offers the user the freedom to adjust the shower temperature well above, or below, the average shower temperature of 105 degrees while still saving up to 3 gallons of water per shower.
The days of turning on the shower and waiting for the water to heat up are over! However, before this innovative product can save the average household 1,300 gallons per year, Sunday Projects needs help. That’s why they launched this Kickstarter campaign. The goal of this project is to raise $300,000 by February 28, 2016. The future of the WUPI is bright and exciting. Contributions and backing will help them, both in bringing an amazing and transformational product to the market, as well as in continuing to meet the challenges noted. They see the future of the WUPI as the future of water conservation, not only in the United States and Europe, but also in developing countries where the scarcity of clean and potable water is a current threat to health and sustainability.
To help bring the WUPI Valve to market, please visit the Kickstarter campaign or click here. Perks will be delivered between March 2016 and June 2016.
Please keep in mind this is an “all-or-nothing” deal, which means if the campaign does not reach the funding goal then the project cannot move forward. So know that any amount given can make a difference, and this is an incredible opportunity to be a part of a special campaign! Help Sunday Projects reach the goal by sharing this on Facebook, Twitter, and other social networks. The more people know about this, the more support the campaign will receive.
