Oxygenics TriSpa Shower
Save water, save money, save the world
In the next 50 years the population of the world is set to double. Already much of the land near the equator is suffering from "high water stress". Meaning the people who live in these hot areas are struggling to find enough clean water to drink and enough water to irrigate their crops. At the moment 66% of the world's water use goes on irrigation. With many more mouths to feed and water on the way the situation is looking grim.
Contrast these facts with the fact that the average household in the USA uses 260 gallons of water a day. And of those 260 gallons a day about 35% is used by toilets, showers and faucets. This seems a blatant waste. The Oxygenics 80227 TriSpa Handheld Shower with its revolutionary airport technnology can help rectify this problem.
The average shower uses 5 gallons of water a minute. That means if you have a shower for longer than 8 minutes you are using more water than a bath (40 gallons). The Oxygenics 80227 TriSpa Handheld Shower uses only 2.5 gallons of water a minute. That's half the water. But the water pressure is the same. Unlike with other eco-friendly shower heads the Oxygenics 80227 doesn't sacrifice water pressure. It is not a dribble but a gush that comes out of the shower wand. This is achieved by 16 air intake ports on the shower wand. These suck in the surrounding air and mix it with the water. This maintains water pressure and adds extra oxygen to the water.
There are three settings on the Oxygenics 80227 shower that range from powerful spray to more gentle to wash the delicate parts of your body. The middle setting feels like bubbles against your skin and is particularly enjoyable.
There are four major benefits in doing this.
- Water consumption for the average shower is halved. This halves the cost per shower.
- Less water used means less water heated. This reduces the heating costs for the water. These first two factors add up to about $10 a month in saved money.
- The oxygen enriched water has a spa effect. It improves circulation, stimulates cell activity and promotes healthier, more youthful-looking skin.
- Using less water for showering is the morally responsible thing to do. Water is like gold and should be used sparingly.
When you look at these 4 major benefits it is hard to understand why every household and hotel room isn't automatically fitted with an Oxygenics 80227 TriSpa Handheld Shower.
