Their Problem

Researchers estimated that over 10% of all the hot water drawn for showering in a typical single-family home is wasted waiting for hot water to arrive. With Americans taking over 200 million showers a day, that’s a lot of water and energy literally down the drain, of no benefit to anyone. Using EPA estimates of shower water use, that’s about 280 million gallons of hot water wasted each day. Our InvenTeam will prototype technological solutions to help reduce wasted water and energy.
