If you live in an apartment or building with a water heater from 1901 (like me) you know how long that sucker takes to heat up the water. The Shower Start is a little device that can detect when water is warm and turn off the flow. Confused? Yeah, me too. Apparently you turn on the water then go about your regular business of making breakfast, shaving, whatever, and the Shower Start will flip off the water flow when hot water is detected. When you are ready to hop in just flip a lever and rub-a-dub-dub. No more wasting water or time waiting for the vintage water heater to do its job. $50.
Actually wouldn't this waste MORE water? Think about it. It turns off when the water get's hot. The reason the water is not hot to start with is because of how far it travels from the water heater to the shower, all that water gets cold siting there. So you turn this thing on and go do the laundry and you come back to it shut off and then you get it and turn it on and get blasted with COLD water anways because you were gone to long and the water between the shower and the water heater has gotten cold already.
What moron invented this?
