Water is such a beautiful, life giving precious resource and a fascinating chemical enigma – definitely something to be conserved. One of the ways to save water is by using low-flow shower heads, however “Low flow shower heads are weak and frustrating. No wonder nobody wants them!” (just ask Kramer for you Seinfeld fans out there!) The Epiphany Digital Flow Optimizer caught my attention because it claims to save up to 40% of shower water. It contains motion sensors that determine whether you are directly under the flow of water or have stepped out to lather your hair or shave; it then decreases the flow while you are out. It takes only 5 minutes to install (between the shower arm and the shower head) and that’s it. You’re on your way to saving water and money. Now you can do your happy dance and sing your happy song in the shower! You may pre-order the chrome or white units for $189 or the bright nickel, brushed nickel, bronze or oil rubbed bronze units for $219 from Intelligent Green Products and it will be delivered by March 2015.
