Waterblade, based in Brighton, fits to a tap and reduces water consumption by up to twice as much as a standard eco aerating nozzle. Inventor Nigel Bamford worked closely with our innovation team to develop his idea and find funding. He won funding that enabled him to work with the University of Brighton’s product design specialists on improving the performance of his invention.

We’ve helped him make connections with large companies in the water industry, and he’s had the opportunity to deliver a presentation on Waterblade at the National Water Efficiency Conference hosted by the university.

Nigel’s support has also covered commercialisation and advice on gaining industry accreditation for the product.
