A 12-year-old Nasik girl has taken it upon herself to solve the water woes of the world. Quite literally. Shrusti Nerkar, a Std VI student of Rachna Vidyalaya has invented a shower with special nozzles that actually saves water.

According to Nerkar, it was her concern for environmental issues that prompted her.

A car wash inspired her

  • Shrusti Nerkar told the DNA that it was when she accompanied her father to a car wash that she realised that saving water is not that difficult.
  • She says, “I heard them announce that they will wash the car with just two litres of water. That really made me curious and I asked them they would go about it. That’s when I found out that they use special sprinklers. Later, I spoke to my father about whether we could use such sprinklers in our shower as well.”
  • She experimented with electric wire pipes and PVC pipes before finally settling for foldable pipes. It took her about four models before the fifth one finally worked.

How does it work?

  • According to media reports, thanks to her design, the shower uses only 15 litres of water for one person as opposed to the 80 litres that is normally used. So effectively, 65 litres of water per person, per shower is being saved.
  • It seems the technology can supply water to a population of 17 lakhs for 34 days.
  • Nerkar’s invention was noticed by District Collector Dipender Singh Kushwah. She has now applied for a patent as well.
  • The young inventor is also a good painter, has a collection of 3,000 erasers, plays the keyboard, likes basketball and is also an amateur magician!
  • She says, “My next step to improve this innovation and make it more environment-friendly is to develop a sensor which will save water when the person is not under it!”
