Earth Day has come and gone, and unfortunately, a lot of people have already begun abandoning the intentions they had just a week or two ago to take steps in starting to live a little greener. Going green can be a daunting concept, especially since a lot of people think that they will have to change nearly every aspect of the way they live their lives in order to have an impact on the environment. In actuality, it’s the little things that you can realistically do every single day that add up and make a real difference. One of those things is water conservation.
Everyone in the family can help save water by doing very simple things, such as only washing full loads of laundry; using the light wash setting on your dishwasher; using reusable bottles for beverages such as water and coffee; turning off the faucet while brushing your teeth; taking showers instead of baths and limiting your showers to 10 minutes; and switching to an eco-friendly shower head, just to name a few.
I admit that cutting down your shower time can be difficult, especially after a long, exhausting day when all you want is to feel the hot water against the back of your neck. The thought of an eco-friendly shower head can be just as shudder-inducing for most people as the concept of a short shower. That’s because shower heads that are designed to use less water are typically low-flow shower heads, producing very little more than a few trickles of water. Definitely not a very pleasant experience. Fortunately, Waterpik is changing all of that with their EcoFlow shower heads.
We were recently able to start saving water in our home, and money on our water bill, with the Waterpik ECO-563 EcoFlow shower head, and we have had great results with it in the last few weeks.
Replacing our old shower head with the Waterpik EcoFlow shower head was incredibly easy and took just a few minutes to attach it right to our existing shower arm. The first thing you will immediately notice is that it is gorgeous. It’s a very shiny chrome, and it’s a luxurious little finish in the bathroom that looks a lot more expensive than it actually is, which is something everyone can love.
The EcoFlow comes with a 5-foot hose attached to the bottom of it so you can use it as a hand-held shower head, or just place it firmly into the mounted carriage. It has five different spray settings–a full-body spray, circular massage, PowerSpray, circular massage plus mist, and a misting spray. Personally, the full body spray is great for a quick shower, while the circular massage is for those days when you want to close your eyes and feel the hot water on your body, carrying away all of your stress and leaving you invigorated.
EcoFlow shower heads use OptiFLOW Technology that improves water force by up to 30% while still conserving water, but not sacrificing its performance, so you are still guaranteed to get a refreshing shower experience.
By replacing your standard shower head with an EcoFlow, you will save up to 1 gallon of water per minute and up to $100 a year on your water bill (based on two 10-minute showers per day.) The Waterpik ECO-563 EcoFlow shower head retails for $51.99, so when considering the amount of money you will save by using it in your home, it will pay for itself in about six months. That is some awesome savings, of both water and money.
Also helping to spread the word about water conservation and motivating more families to make life-long commitments to using less water in their everyday lives is the National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation. Throughout April, families around the country have been pledging to use less water and participating in a friendly competition between residents of cities across the U.S. to see who can be the most “water-wise.” Take the pledge and see where your city ranks.
I love our new EcoFlow shower head, I really do, and I am so excited to have the opportunity to spread this love by giving away a Waterpik ECO-563 EcoFlow shower head to one lucky Woman Tribune reader. To enter, use the Rafflecopter form below.
