Water Select® offers water savings for homeowners. With climate change concerns, pervasive droughts, and high energy prices across the country, nearly everyone is looking for ways to conserve resources and cut cost. Many Americans know about the importance of saving energy, and many know about the importance of saving water. But few know about the direct connection between saving both.

Water Savings For Homeowners By Water Select®

It’s Time for a New Way to Think About Water and Energy Efficiency in the Home

Let’s face it, owning a home has a number of operating expenses that are difficult to manage.  For example, utilities; water, sewer, electricity or gas are erratic monthly expenses that many would like to reduce.  The Green Movement, coupled with new technology in the Fields of Water Conservation, are creating a new industry with this goal in mind.  Water Select® is an industry leader in the Field of Conservation encompassing all facets of our daily shower.   

Water Select® Is Conservation With Immediate Effect.

If you are reading this, then you have a desire to make advancement in either the direction of water conservation or the direction of utility cost control, or both.    Water Select® offers a solution that we are proud to say addresses both conservation and cost control.  Reducing water consumption and the energy associated with the use of potable water, in the shower, is the key objective of Water Select®

Water Select® offers a unique patented design, quarter-turn valve, with handicap operable, child accessible, handle which can be used in conjunction with full-flow, or low-flow showerheads, to provide substantial savings in water, sewage, gas or electricity associated with each shower.  It fits nicely between the shower arm and the showerhead or in conjunction with a hand-held showerhead.  This product is designed for both retro-fit and all new construction and is simple to install in a couple of minutes.

The Federal Energy Policy Act of 1992 mandates that, that "all faucet fixtures manufactured in the United States restrict maximum water flow at or below 2.5 gallons per minute (gpm) at 80 pounds per square inch (psi) of water pressure or 2.2 gpm at 60 psi."   Or as the Department of Energy itself declares to all consumers and manufacturers: "Federal regulations mandate that new showerhead flow rates can't exceed more than 2.5 gallons per minute (gpm) at a water pressure of 80 pounds per square inch (psi)."

Many vintage showerheads, made before 1992, can use water at the rate of 5 gpm, or more. By adding a Water Select® valve to these vintage showerheads the efficiency of these older models is greatly enhanced and the water pressure is not compromised.  Water Select® offers a choice of 2- valves, in a variety of finishes, which are easily installed (see video here) between the shower arm and your existing showerhead.  


Our most popular, fully adjustable, Water Select® valve has a built-in reduced-flow rate of 2.0 gpm, when used in conjunction with a 2.5 gpm showerhead, gives an automatic savings of 20%; because it uses 1/2 gpm less water than the standard 2.5 gpm showerheads.  Our full-flow (FF) – non-restricted-flow valve, is necessary for the larger rain showerheads, flowing more than 2.5 gpm. A Water Select® valve, with a full-flow showerhead, enables you to regulate the flow and contribute towards conservation.  This is especially important in times of drought and persistent water shortages.  Enjoy the same shower sensation after adding a Water Select® valve, because you still have the same water pressure and continue using your existing showerhead.

Utilizing our unique 15”, handicap operable, child accessible, extended handle, a Water Select® valve can adjust the flow-rate from full-on to completely off, all with a quarter-turn of the handle. Simply pull down on the handle to reduce the flow-rate all the way to completely off, or push up on the handle to increase the flow-rate all the way to completely on.  Then you can stop anywhere in between when your desired flow-rate is achieved.  We need to re-educate ourselves, and our children, on how to take a water efficient shower.  Many times during the course of a shower it is feasible, even preferable, to reduce the flow of water while tasks; such as:  soaping-up, shaving, brushing your teeth, bathing children, bathing pets, bathing the elderly, or cleaning, are being performed. A Water Select® valve helps make this practice of conserving water a daily routine.   By reducing the flow to a trickle, not full-off, when you lift the handle to increase the flow back to full-on the water temperature is more likely to remain constant.  We cannot guarantee water temperature fluctuations when someone starts the washing machine or flushes the toilet, etc, while you are in the shower.

Additionally, you can reduce the amount of water wasted while waiting for hot water to arrive at the showerhead by pulling down the extended handle to create a low -flow.  The time required for the hot water to arrive is about the same, using either full or reduced-flows.  Reduce your flow and save water.

If you go to our savings calculator, you can calculate exactly what savings you can expect when you install a Water Select® valve in every shower in your home.  Our reduced-flow valve offers an automatic 20% savings, when used in conjunction with 2.5+ gpm showerheads, in the utility expenses associated with each shower.  For an average family of 3-, this savings adds up to approximately a $180/year return on your valve investment.  If you use the quarter-turn handle, when possible, then the savings are in your control and can escalate as you desire.

We know you will like our value and the all round savings Water Select® valves affords you.  Please help us spread the word that New Technology is available to improve our ability to use our most valuable natural resource, WATER, more resourcefully.  Water Select® is proud to contribute a new aspect to using utilities more efficiently and decreasing our monthly bills.

The time is NOW to take advantage of any and all ways available to operate and run a house more economically.  Potable Water is the Quiet Emergency.  The Future is NOW!  The time is NOW to look at how we can all contribute to conserving our most precious and valuable resource; WATER.  We are in desperate need of conserving our supplies of water that is clean enough to safely drink and facilitate the cleaning and maintenance of our lives.  Water, is the habitation for humanity. Water is the necessity of life.
