Seventy percent of the earth is covered by water, but only one percent is available for human consumption. By replacing the hardware on your shower with a low-flow showerhead, you can save over 20,000 gallons of water a year.
Oxygenics’ Five Star Resort Spa showerhead injects oxygen into the water to increase pressure, and uses only 2.5 gallons of water per minute. In comparison, a standard shower uses 4.5. Since the water is aerated into a strong mist, the resulting shower has the added benefit of improving circulation and stimulating cell activity. While you’ll spend around $44 on your new showerhead, you could save as much as $145 a year on your utility bill.
