This shower wastes almost zero water, without sacrificing comfort

If you ever feel guilty for whatever length show you happen to take....you're doing in wrong and a fool.
The link mentions "Precise Temperature regulation".
I'm assuming this means the closed loop system reheats your filtered 'drinking water quality' used water up again.
Surely all this technology to save some water, is over-kill, where water can be better saved elsewhere with easier, and more practical solutions, and at a better cost - how much does this recycling plant cost ?
Cute idea, but nuclear powered water desalination plants with nuclear powered water distribution networks would be a better long term strategy.
@kralspaces There isn't a desalination plant within 100 miles of most people on earth, I don't think that plan would work at all.
Sure, if you live by a nuclear water desalination plant, their excess heat should be cheap for you to buy but, the further you take the water the cooler it gets.
Why must it be either/or, rather than both/and? There is no single "best" technology or method to addressing constrained supply of necessary resources. There is endless innovation, as long as those rabid central planners can be kept at bay and allow the innovators to try (and sometimes fail).
If it's anything like the UK, 30% of the water will be lost by the transmission network, before it even gets to your house/business. Fixing that, would give a bigger return.
