It’s not so eco friendly when you realize the pressure is provided by a pump running on electricity generated at a power plant.
True, it is running on the water pressure that is likely generated by an electric pump. However, does this cause any additional load on the pump?
My understanding is that it does not, so using the water powered radio doesn’t cause any increased electricity usage by the water company. It just would slightly reduce the pressure of the shower water. If this is correct, it would still be a net benefit to the environment compared to using an electric or battery powered shower radio.
Now I can sing in my bathroom at home! 🙂
I believe the water pressure is primarily generated by gravity and your local water tower. What did you think they were for?
Yes…but how does the water get up into the water tower? Electric pumps.
Do you not see the efficiency of this product. It is using the exact amount of water you would use anyway while showering, plus it does not use batteries which contributes to toxic landfill, it is a win win and most definitely eco-friendly
