Why Hotels and Motels Should Be Using Our Low Flow Shower Heads

David Malcolm - Friday, October 12, 2012

It happened to me again last week, for the umpteenth time, on a quick overnight trip to the California Coast. I wanted to take a strong but soothing shower (you know, plenty of rinsing power but no sting) after the long drive. When I entered the hotel bathroom, my heart sank. Mounted above the tub was this plastic monstrosity, with a dial surrounded by dozens of tiny holes—many of them visibly clogged with mineral deposits.

Seinfeld "The Shower" Yes, I'm talking about The Dreaded Hotel Water-Saving Shower Head Experience. I’m sure it’s happened to you.

Needless to say, the shower I took that evening was lousy. Water dribbled weakly from the partly clogged shower face. Turning the "massaging" dial had no effect on the comfort or power of the spray. Rinsing off was a lengthy, unsatisfying ritual. My wife didn't like it either. The next morning, she said her hair felt flat, like that of the Seinfeld crew in the famous low flow shower episodeMore...

World's Most Versatile Showerhead Is Made Right Here in the USA

David Malcolm - Tuesday, May 22, 2012

Versatility is a wonderful thing to have in a product. We've all heard the cliché about "It slices, it dices, it will even shine your shoes ... etc. etc." Some power tools can do just about anything. Many modern weed whackers have four or five different attachments for different jobs.

But is there such a thing as an extremely versatile shower head?
You betcha. It's called the High Sierra Showerhead, and it's made right here in the California foothills.  More...

It's OK to Be Greedy Green

David Malcolm - Monday, August 01, 2011

We all know that "Green" behavior is something most people look upon favorably.  Wanting to help the planet—or even just your own community—by saving resources and using environmentally responsible products is a good thing.

But isn't there a bit of self-denial and discipline involved?  Don't we have to sacrifice pleasure and performance to use products that are environmentally sound?

Not really.  In fact, we would like to remind you here and now that many environmentally sound products are vastly superior to their wasteful counterparts.  Just for the heck of it, we will call the enjoyment and/or consumption of these products "Greedy Green."

Greedy Green is good. Greedy Green is in. Greedy Green is happening all around us.  More...

Low Water Pressure or Clogged Shower Head?

David Malcolm - Monday, April 04, 2011

Quite often, a customer will tell a plumber or plumbing supply dealer that they have low water pressure when the problem is simply a clogged shower head—especially if the device is a low-flow model that restricts the stream of water by forcing it through small openings in a disk or diaphragm and then through a series of small holes or nozzles.

If your shower head dribbles instead of spraying, or if there are obvious deposits clinging to the nozzles, you can clean the thing by soaking it in vinegar for half a day, disassembling it, and working away with a toothpick and an old toothbrush.

Or you can toss it in the trash and buy a new one.

Or, better yet, you can buy yourself a showerhead that won't get clogged in the first place (such as a High Sierra FCS-100 Showerhead®).

Most low flow shower heads regulate the flow of water using an O ring over the top of a plastic disk with small holes in it. To keep large particles such as rust, flakes of solder, sand, or other debris out of this restrictor, there is often a fine screen between the restrictor and the water pipe. This screen is the first place to look for your clog.  More...

Three Key Lessons We've Learned About Showerheads for Prisons

David Malcolm - Monday, February 21, 2011

Over the past two years, our company has changed out about 3,000 showerheads in state and BOP prisons across the U.S.  During that time, we've talked to many facilities managers and maintenance supervisors about the unique challenges they face in these times of ever-tightening budgets.  Here's a quick summary of the key things we have learned.

NUMBER ONE:  Changing out the water-wasting showerheads in a correctional facility to 1.5 gpm (gallons per minute) devices is about the cheapest, most dirt simple, most no-brainer money saving strategy a facilities manager or plant operations/maintenance supervisor can choose.  This applies even if the existing showerheads are 2.5 (or even 2.0) gpm models. More...
