Cleveland Faucet Group (CFG), a Moen Incorporated brand, has introduced its new Water Saving showerhead, designed specifically for the multifamily market. This showerhead flows at a rate of 1.75 gallons per minute (gpm), offering a 30 percent water savings from the industry standard of 2.5 gpm.
The use of CFG’s new Water Saving showerheads can also contribute toward a building’s eligibility for LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification in the Water Use Reduction category. The products are also certified to the IAPMO (International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials) Green standard for having a flow rate at least 20 percent below the industry showerhead standard.
“Multifamily property owners are always looking for ways to manage costs and this showerhead is a quick and easy solution for property owners to realize significant savings on their utility bills.” says Mark Knurek, CFG brand manager.
CFG’s new Water Saving showerhead is available as a stand-alone item, or as an option on the tub and shower products of CFG’s Capstone or Cornerstone collections. CFG’s Water Saving showerheads are available in Chrome, PVD Brushed Nickel and Old World Bronze finishes.
Unlike some water-efficient showerheads that simply restrict the water flow, CFG’s new Water Saving showerheads feature an optimized spray pattern to help preserve the showering experience that end-users are accustomed to from full-flow showerheads. To create this unique design, CFG decreased the diameter of the spray formers in order to maintain the velocity of the water streams hitting the body, treating users to a full, powerful spray. The rubber spray formers also provide the ability to simply wipe away hard mineral deposits on the showerhead, preserving a consistent spray pattern and extending its useful life.
