HILLSDALE, MICH. — Alsons Corp., a manufacturer of distinctively-styled shower products, has partnered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for the WaterSense program. The company announced that 40 of its showerheads and hand showers have received the new WaterSense certification for showerheads.
The WaterSense label provides trade professionals and consumers with the assurance that select showerheads and hand showers are at least 20% more water efficient than the current federal standard of 2.5 GPM, flowing at a pressure of 80 psi. To receive the label, qualified showerheads and hand showers must be independently tested and certified to meet EPA’s performance specifications for flow rate over a range of pressures, force and spray coverage.
“As a WaterSense partner, we are dedicated to offering water-saving shower products that meet the performance requirements as specified by the EPA while still providing users with an enhanced shower experience,” said John Davies, vice president of sales, Alsons Corp. “The unique spray dynamics featured in the patented Fluidics Technology gives users the sensation of a high-flow shower experience while using 20-40% less water.”
The Fluidics Spray Technology is featured in 14 of Alsons’ Water-Amplyfying showerheads, meeting the WaterSense criteria. This patented technology controls the water’s shape and velocity, producing larger spray droplets that retain their heat longer. These showerheads feature either a single 1.5 GPM or 2.0 GPM spray, or a model with both flow rates that can be selected with an easy-turn lever.
Other Alsons products meeting WaterSense criteria have a flow rate of 2.0 GPM and feature multiple spray settings. In addition to the water savings, the WaterSense products also conserve energy, requiring less gas or electric to heat the reduced amount of water.
