Water Pik EcoFlow 4 Mode Handheld Low Flow Showerhead

Water Pik’s EcoFlow Handheld Showerhead is a handy, water efficient showerhead ideal for a variety of uses. It uses just 1.5 gallons of water per minute and features four basic modes: a wider powerspray, a concentrated pulsating massage and a low flow version of each. The showerhead can also be set to a combination of the two!

Low Flow Showerhead Powerspray Mode

The 5’ long hose makes washing your dog or rinsing kids after a bath easy! Plus, you can quickly rinse the walls and bottom of the tub after cleaning.

Overall, the showerhead is very sturdily built and attractive. The chrome finish gives the shower a clean, polished look, while the alternating chrome and black rings on the hose are striking and unusual (in the best way!).

Low Flow Showerhead Pulsating Massage Mode

We immediately noticed a difference in our water bill after switching showerheads – nearly $15 for two adults and a dog. While you may notice a small difference in water flow from your old showerhead, the OptiFLOW technology makes the difference minimal. Not your style? No problem. We have plenty of low flow showerheads. No matter what model you choose, we’re confident you’ll love it.

8 Tips for Surviving a Skyrocketing Pollen Count

April 18th, 2013 | Posted by EnergyEarth in Green Tips - (0 Comments)

Cherry Tree Branch

Allergy season is upon us. Whether or not it has hit your area yet, one thing is certain: it’s coming, and if you have allergies, it’s coming for you.

Soon, the dreaded yellow particles will be coating every available surface, making it impossible to avoid! Here are some great tips to help you get through allergy season without sneezing from dawn ‘til dusk.

Pollen on Car Roof

1. Take an antihistamine at least 30 minutes before going outside.

2. Minimize outdoor activity when pollen counts are high. Peak pollen times are usually between 10am and 4pm. You can even check out your area’s pollen count for the day and plan accordingly!

3. Keep windows closed and seal any air leaks you may have around windows or doors. You’ll keep pollen out and save on your utility bills!

4. Thoroughly clean you home – you’d be surprised how much pollen and dust can collect on surfaces in no time.

5. Wash bedding regularly.

6. Invest in an energy efficient air purifier to keep your home’s air clean and refreshing.

7. Take a shower before bed – you’ll sleep better without pollen on you!

8. Bathe your pets frequently and keep them off of furniture, if possible. Pollen can cling to your dog or cat’s fur and get tracked indoors.

Tissues and Box

We hope these tips help you and loved ones have a happy and healthy spring season, no matter the pollen count!
