A shower regulator with timer that slowly cools your shower's temperature
Semi-Fact: They say people can get sick
from going from a hot shower to a cold
Fact: Me and the kids are always running
late in the mornings from staying to long
in that hot shower
Fact: Foggy mirrors after a hot shower
be very annoying!
Fact: Nothing is more refreshing,
wakes you up more, than a cold shower.
The Eazy showe is temperature regulator
with a timer that goes between your
shower head and the water valve. You set
the timer for how long you want
be in the shower. The regulator let's
you enjoy your hot water for most of the
shower, but during the last five minutes
slowly starts turning down the hot water,
making your water cooler. The change is
very suttle, so you hardly notice, but by
the end of your shower time your water
will be room temperature. No more
of leaving that shower into a cold room!
No more foggy mirrors! No more staying
in the shower too long! You leave your
shower more awake and refreshed than
||Semi-Fact? There's a halfbaked idea or two in there.
||My shower already does this. As the hot water stored in the tank runs low, the temperature starts to go from hot to warm to cool. No need for a timer.
||The reason you become cold coming out of the shower is
*not* that the water was warmer than room temperature.
In fact, the air in the bathroom is significantly above room
temperature by the time you get out.
||The reason you become cold is because the water
remaining on your skin evaporates, carrying away heat. If
anything, take Larry Schlusser's shower system and add a
water-tight compartment for a towel. ;)
||Oh, and your second Fact could be addressed by an egg-

A semi-fact has more wheels than a regular fact, and a tighter turning circle.

Yes, Yes, Fact grading. Little know, scientists agree, well known, irrefutable.... semi-lie? Somebody should post this, just not me, my delete track record is very poor.
