Air-in Shower shower head inflates droplets, saves 35% water
Air-in Shower technology may not be something you’re heard off the mill. It’s new and helps save 35% water while showering. Instead of sticking to smaller holes in shower heads, this technology produces larger droplets that are filled with air, thus simulating dense volume of water while saving it. Besides saving water, the technology also reduces total energy use. According to the manufacturer, TOTO, ‘or a family of four, this product saves 15,300 yen (~US$180) in water and gas bills annually, and cuts CO2 emission by 146 kg’. The company plans to make the Air-in Shower a standard for all TOTO fittings and taps.
Air-in Shower will start retailing as a stand-alone product from February. The shower head alone costs $70. The Air-in Click Shower that packs a hose and a button will cost $170.
