Case Study: Sustainable Renovation Project with Recirculating Shower technology

Just outside Vancouver, British Columbia, an eco-conscious couple in their 30s embarked on a mission to seamlessly integrate water and energy conservation into their daily lives. Their commitment made them pioneers in a groundbreaking project, incorporating RainStick, North America's first circular shower, into their home.

Why Choose a Recirculating Shower?

In an era where water scarcity and conservation take center stage, opting for a recirculating shower goes beyond personal preference—it's a conscious choice to address a broader environmental challenge. The average household in the United States consumes a staggering 320 gallons of water*, with a significant portion used in your bathroom.
Driven by their passion for water and energy conservation, the homeowners faced a dilemma. While adamant about reducing their environmental footprint, they were unwilling to compromise on the quality of their daily shower experience. This is where RainStick, the innovative recirculating shower, emerged as the perfect solution, aligning with their sustainability goals and addressing the broader issue of water scarcity.

The Pilot Project Overview

Tailored for both new builds and renovation projects, RainStick became the go-to choice for the discerning couple seeking a bathroom upgrade. Eager to revamp their master bathroom with a fresh aesthetic and a shower embodying sustainable living, the homeowners selected RainStick into their renovation plans as part of our pilot project. The installation was complemented with traditional floor and wall tiles. This harmonious blend not only enhanced the bathroom's visual appeal but also brought together contemporary technology and traditional design.

Impact and Results of the RainStick Pilot Project

Now, let's delve into the impact. The RainStick installation proved to be a game-changer, not just in terms of savings but in redefining the essence of a daily shower routine. Results are based on a 2-person single-family home, with a total average shower time per day of 24 minutes.

$600 CAD in Savings

The RainStick shower resulted in substantial financial advantages, leading to a noteworthy decrease in the homeowners' water and energy expenses. The immediate impact on monthly expenses showcases RainStick's cost-effectiveness, emphasizing its long-term financial benefits and sustainability.

16,183 Gallons of Water Saved

RainStick's recirculating shower technology maximizes every drop of water, resulting in a noteworthy ecological impact. The conservation of over 16,000 gallons, equivalent to an average-sized swimming pool, not only represents substantial environmental benefits but also elevates the daily shower experience, adding a sense of satisfaction to every use.

1,171 kWh Energy Saved

The impact extends beyond water conservation to energy efficiency. RainStick's technology can save up to 80% of your energy costs with a traditional shower.

The Homeowner's Reflection

In their reflection on this sustainability journey, the homeowners express, "RainStick has become an integral part of our daily lives. It's not just a shower; it's a conscious choice towards a greener, more sustainable future. We're proud to be at the forefront of this innovative technology."

What Does the Future Hold For Recirculating Showers?

As the RainStick shower continues to prove its worth in the BC home, our CEO, Alisha McFetridge, is excited for the RainStick project to inspire more people to make environmentally conscious choices in their homes. It's not just about showers; it's about shaping a more sustainable lifestyle for the future without compromising on experience or luxury.
The RainStick recirculating shower is not just a home upgrade—it's smart technology driven by our vision, allowing people to thrive using only 50L of water per person, per day. This case study showcases how a simple decision to embrace innovative technology can have profound implications for both individual households and the broader environmental landscape. As we witness the shift towards sustainable living, RainStick stands as a beacon, demonstrating that every shower can be a step towards a greener, more conscious tomorrow.
