At the IDEX exhibition held in Abu Dhabi (Feb. 17-21, 2013), one of major attractions was a tankless shower using recycled water developed by French firm Geopack Industries. The Geopure mobile, modular water recycling system was presented by Bahrain-based company Janada, an international marketing, consulting, solutions and services provider company. A Plug n Play concept, the innovative shower was first introduced to IDEX two years ago, but it had some issues at that time that needed attention.
Nader Said Eldajani, president and CEO of Janada, cited that those issues have been addressed and the tankless shower system works smoothly now. The Geopure shower has a double compartment container that holds up to 50 liters of water that goes to the showerhead. When the user takes a shower, the water drains to the second compartment where it is filtered and purified for re-use. The innovative system is capable of recycling the water as many as 50 times.
The Geopure kit comes complete with the shower, along with the and antibacterial and purifying tubes that need to be replaced once every six months, depending on the usage of the shower. The 70kg shower cubicle is made of light material and features shower tray, a fixed showerhead, a shower hose, a shower mat, an LED light and a small mirror. Moreover, there is a hidden pocket that the users can use to store and keep your clothes dry while you enjoy a relaxing shower.
To add to its green credentials, the shower system comes with two solar panels and uses minimal power, 500 watts. Easy to use and set up almost anywhere, the Geopure shower system sells for €10,000 (about $13,270).
