How to Save Water with Delta H2Okinetic Showers


According to the Alliance for Water Efficiency, the average American uses 17.2 gallons of water whenever they take a shower. With all of that water literally going down the drain, it’s no wonder that all the big names in the shower industry are focusing on creating products that waste less and save more. Enter the H2Okinetic system from Delta.

Available in both showerheads and handshowers, H2Okinetic technology is the latest innovation in Delta’s ongoing mission to provide long-lasting and money-saving shower products. A sleek, almost futuristic design is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what makes H2Okinetic products different than the average shower lineup; the real magic happens on the inside.

Delta H2Okinetic ShowerTraditional showerheads and handshowers employ a number of spray settings (rain shower, massage spray, mist, etc.) in order to soften or intensify the flow of water. H2Okinetic takes this concept one step farther by first passing the water through an internal system (pictured) that shapes the speed, motion, and size of every drop. In the split second before it flows out of the device, the water basically passes through an assembly line of internal chambers, which results in larger droplets designed to mimic a rainforest shower.

The benefits of H2Okinetic? It’s all about water efficiency. The high-velocity wave pattern produced by the internal system creates the feeling of more coverage, yet the water flows at a rate of only 2.0 gallons per minute (low enough to qualify as WaterSense Certified). Plus, the larger droplets produced by H2Okinetic technology retain heat longer, resulting in a shower experience that feels warmer and fuller at no extra cost. And as an added bonus, the H2Okinetic system is self-cleaning (preventing lime buildup) and does not rely on any moving parts that might wear out over time.

When it comes to showers, water efficiency is often a must-have for many customers, especially those who live in drought-threatened areas like California that actually have laws requiring water efficient products. The Delta H2Okinetic is a perfect example of a system that saves both water and money, without sacrificing function or design.
