Recycling bathwater

A JAPANESE company has introduced a bathing system that helps conserve water. The Full Time Bath enables the same water to be used for upto a month of body-scrubbing. The computer-controlled system, equipped with double-filtration and anti-bacterial function, keeps the recycled water as sparkling clean as tap water.

The company claims that the system is self-cleaning and requires no maintenance. So far, however, there haven't been too many takers for the $9,259 gizmo, largely because the human mind resists wallowing in its own gunge.
