Showerheads & the Water Select® Showerhead Valve

Water Conservation by Water Select®



Finding the best showerheads that provide a luxurious showering experience is not always easy. When buying a new showerhead it pays to learn about how the different types of showerheads use water and how much water they use when that same showerhead is used in conjunction with a Water Select® showerhead valve.

Water is invariably a pleasing experience. Immersing the body in or under water can be transforming. The more pleasing the encounter the more indulgent the experience. Some people like really hot showers, not just to get clean but to help them relax. There are showerheads that cater to just this type of showering experience. Use the Water Select® showerhead valve with these luxurious showerheads to help reduce the amount of water used, reduce the amount of sewage that circles the drain and reduce the electricity/gas needed to heat the water.

There are many types of showerheads such as fixed-mount showerheads and hand-held showerheads which come in different spray and flow variations. A few of the most popular showerheads are commonly referred to as: rain-fall, rain-drop, high-efficiency, low-flow, water-saving, high-pressure, massaging, luxurious, therapeutic, spray, hand-held and navy-style.

The Federal Energy Policy Act of 1992 mandates that all new showerheads restrict the flow-rate (the amount of water that passes thru the showerhead) to 2.5 gpm (gallons per minute), or less. Why is this a problem for most people? Other than the problem with the government regulating how Americans take a shower, many feel that the flow of water through the showerhead is too weak and the reduced water pressure is inferior.

Water Select® Is Conservation With Immediate Effect.

Here is where the Water Select® showerhead valve comes to the rescue. When a person uses the Water Select® showerhead valve with any commercial showerhead the water pressure (psi) is never reduced. The Water Select® valve turns all showerheads into high efficiency units that allow the water flow to be fully adjusted from full-flow all the way down to a complete stop. Retail, or commercial, showerheads do not offer these important water saving features.

Water Select® is an industry leader in the field of water conservation, encompassing all facets of the daily shower. The Water Select® valve is easily installed between the shower arm and any choice of showerheads. It features either a 5” or a 15”, handicap operable, child accessible, extended handle that adjusts 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 of your showerhead all the way to completely off, or push up on the handle to increase the flow-rate of your showerhead all the way to completely on. Then a person can stop anywhere in between when the desired flow-rate is achieved. People need to re-educate themselves, and they're 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 coming out of the showerhead 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® showerhead valve helps make this practice of conserving water a daily routine.

Additionally, anyone can reduce the amount of water wasted while waiting for hot water to arrive at the showerhead by pulling down the Water Select® showerhead valve’s 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 the flow and save water.

Given how closely related saving water is to saving energy, one of the best ways to save energy across the country and in residential homes is to use water more efficiently. With any showerhead a person can use the Water Select® showerhead valve to save water and money on utility bills.
