Founder and President, The Water Scrooge
David Schwartz is the founder and president of
The Water Scrooge
, which offers patented, maintenance-free water conservation solutions to homeowners and landlords. A native of Israel, Schwartz was inspired by his countrymen's water conservation techniques and realized that U.S. markets lacked such a tamper-proof conservation device for residential showers. His solution saves landlords an average of $500 per unit per year on water costs and has been installed in more than 40,000 apartments, to date.
