The 4…uh 4-15 min shower timer

BronwenWeeGo.jpgLike the rest of Brisbane (maybe even Queensland) we were issued with our 4 minute shower timer in an effort to get all households to use a maximum of 140L of water per person a day.

This is all well and good…except it’s not the best “egg timer” in the world.  Not sure what they’ve done with the design, but I’ve seen it “clog up” on 3 separate occasions now..and you have to give it a little tap to restart.  This of course means your 4 min shower can easily become 15 as it’s hard to see the grains of sand falling in a steamy shower room..let alone notice that it’s blocked up.

So did I get a faulty one or are they all llike this?
