Bought for a gift exchange for the kids...the recipient was not happy. I think this was a neat idea and I guess myself and only one other adult who was entertained by the fact there was such a invention out of the entire gathering of about 15-18 people felt this way. The child will be unable to use this due to the item being too small for their bathroom shower drain. Their bathroom is a older house and would not work since it would fall into the drain and water would surround it not go past it as designed. I had this in mind but again I was under the impression for some reason this would be the size of a Whoppie cushion by viewing the picture for some reason. As far as use I can not rate since it was unable to be used. Out of all the children the one that got it I imagined would have be humored by it and while the other kids were glad he got it and not them, he was not happy as he got it either.

Easy to use and got me out of the shower in minutes....now if I could just get the 13yr old to follow suit!!!!
good product. Definitely noticing that we use less water!

I am disappointed that there isn't clear instructions with the product. I have to look it up online as the packaging suggests. Used it once but not sure it is "programmed"? I think it will work but don't want to go searching for how to make it work.
They are such an easy/fun way to teach children how to be attentive to water use.
I discovered that by the basis of this product, I don't run a long shower. I had a little trouble to start it, I kept trying to press it but it starts on it's own. The problem is our shower is not like a reagular shower head, it is hand held and we are missing the drain cover. The water pebble gets stuck on the drain and backs up the water. But I think if we fix our drain that won't be a problem. A nifty way to get people concious of their shower usage.
Gets my kids out of the shower without me nagging. Makes it fun for them to beat the signal.
This was a gift for my teenage son, who sometimes takes way too long showers. He likes to use it, and I can't wait to see if I see results in my water bill.
Our seven year-old daughter was spending way too much time in the shower. The Water Pebble helps her know what time she has left. She takes it in with her when she starts her shower, and removes it when she is done. That would also be the only real flaw with the product - it is only for a single user. Shower duration for a little girl and her 6'7" daddy are two entirely different things.
Use it everyday. Only thing is that I stop the shower when pitting soap on, it restarts after I open the shower. Not sure if there is a shutoff timeout.
