Green Wednesday: The Trickle-Down Effect Works…For Showerheads

From on August 06, 2008 in Bathroom Remodel

showerUnfortunately, there are several ways in which the average family wastes water on a daily basis. Perhaps the biggest water wasting habit so many of us have is letting the shower run, and run, and run, while we wait for warm water. We brush our teeth, lay out our clothes, shave, and oftentimes the entire bathroom is at a hundred degrees before we remember to get in the shower. But now one water-conscious company, evolve Showerheads, has patented a showerhead that slows the water flow down to a trickle when the water’s temperature reaches 95 degrees.

No More Wasting, or Waiting

Normally, evolve claims, letting the shower warm up wastes an average of two and a half gallons of water per minute. With evolve’s new, ShowerStart technology we can not only save water, roughly 2,700 gallons per year, and money, about $75 per year, but the trickling effect acts as an alarm, letting you know your shower is ready.

Evolve’s showerheads are available through their website and come in a variety of styles and sizes to fit most showers.
