Rated 3.61/5 (18) —  Free Android application by iCOMMS Development Team



South Africa is a water stressed country, and we all need to do our part in conserving this invaluable natural resource, so that we can continue to live harmoniously with our environment.

DROP DROP will show you how to do your part, by helping you save water at home.
Ultimately, this can result in a saving on your monthly water bill too!

By entering a reading from the municipality's external water meter (connected to your home), DROP DROP will calculate your projected water usage for the month and provide you with an estimate of your water bill. This information can then be used to optimize your water usage and DROP DROP has a few suggestions that can help you in doing just that.

DROP DROP will also make suggestions on additional water savings in your home, to further reduce water consumption and ultimately lower your water bill.

You can also log reports that you make about water delivery services and get all the numbers and contact details you need to help do your part in water conservation.

DROP DROP will also provide you with useful tips such as "How to Change a Washer on a Leaky Tap", "Test for Water Leaks" and "How to Save Money with Every Flush".

Use the app's Knowledge Base section to access friendly, illustrated resources for learning about water in general and tips on the conservation of this natural resource intrinsically linked to our survival.

What are users saying about DROP DROP

by Z####:

Only applicable to Cape Town .

by W####:

Well done Bianca Forlee... And your research development team.

by D####:

Very simple to use. I read our meter daily and this has made us more aware of our consumption. Have a detailed record to reconcile to the Municipal account. Well done on the simplicity

by V####:

It is only applicable to Cape Town but that was the intention. I would dearly love the ability to add historical data also.

by U####:

Worst UI I have seen in a long time. Was this someone's high school CS project?!

by I####:

It would be more helpful to be able to input fractions of kL, ie on my water metre I can read xxxx.xxx, but can only input xxxx. Since I'm not using over a kL of water a day (I would hope most people aren't!!!) it would be more helpful to still be able to see my usage per day even if its 0.1kL for example. I have now had to do that on a Google spreadsheet. On an aesthetic note, this app could do with a bit of a redesign, but that's just my opinion.

by T####:

Great concept, but lacks some essential basic features. I've been keeping logs of my water usage but with the current lack of functionality of the edit readings menu I can not add retrospective readings... Please add this feature.

by L####:

Looks great a widget would be a good feature to add

by S####:

Would be nice to be able to take snapshot of water reading with ocr as input.

by V####:

Savee waterrrr

by A####:

The knowledgebase section has some really useful info on simple and practical matters like how to change a washer on a tap :)

by Z####:

Helps to become aware of water use..though there's room to improve it to make it more flashy

by W####:

A simple and effective app that helps you save water in your bathroom, kitchen and garden.
