Water restrictions are being relaxed in Melbourne next month, but that hasn't stopped Melbourne-based iPhone developer The App Bakery releasing Water Buddy, an app intended to help save water.

As more Americans become aware of the need to conserve water for environmental reasons, or due to drought-related water use restrictions, the water utilities have found themselves struggling to stay financially sound as they begin to sell less water to their customers.
I am working on a project where I have to detect when there is no water in a pipe. This is water in pipes from boreholes that are located far away from town. So I'll be able to detect when a borehole pump is off if there is no water in that pipe.
Over the last years the demands for rushing water increased dramatically. It seems as if people suddenly stopped realizing that while three quarters of the world is water, the stream that comes flushing down our faucets and bathroom faucets are actually very limited. Somehow people got too busy to care about how water needed to be conserved as much as anything else.
Anyone have one of these? My water in my house takes a while to get hot probably close to a minute, all the while money is going down the drain... my whole house is electric including the hot water heater and I do have a water bill so it makes me curious if the hefty $200.00+ price tag for a good one is worth the investment, do they really provide instant hot water???
I consider my self quite lucky to live at a place(Norway) there good and cool drinking water come out of the tap. No need to get fancy and high priced bottle water. The picture shows me filling my water bottle at the gym. The sink is put up to work as water post. And many use it to fill up their water bottle.
