Showerheads and showerhead adapters that work efficiently help to:
- Regulate flow rate
- Save water and energy both before and after your shower
- Balance the water temperature without losing energy
Home showerheads account for about 17% of indoor water use, which means that an energy-efficient shower fixture can save many gallons of water during each shower.
There are constantly new innovations in showerheads and thermostatic shut-off valves, which allow you to reduce the amount of water that is used on average as well as the amount of energy that is needed to heat the water.
Thermostatic Shut-Off Valves (TSVs)
TSVs are integrated with new showerheads. They can also be added to a showerhead adapter and be used with your existing showerhead. The valve is triggered by water temperature and helps reduce the amount of hot water that runs down the drain. This is especially convenient for people who let the warm water run before getting in.
The great thing about the TSV is that it senses when the water is up to temperature and then slows the water flow to more of a trickle. When you want to start your shower, simply pull the cord attached to the valve and the full water flow will resume.
