You’d Never Guess This Spa-Like Showerhead Saves Nearly Half the Water of a Normal One
In order to lessen our carbon footprint, we must make some serious sacrifices. Bike more and drive less. Eat more veggies and less meat. And opt for low-flow showerheads to save on water usage. However, there may be an alternative to the latter sacrifice.
Whether you’re trying to go green or save some green, you need to check out the Nebia by Moen shower system, which according to its Kickstarter page, will “reinvent the way we interact with water altogether.” Basically, it’s the showerhead of the future, and it’s going to save water and money.
Nebia, the brand behind two other much-loved, water-saving shower systems, teamed up with Moen to make water-saving technology accessible for the everyday homeowner/renter/showerer in general. The Nebia by Moen shower head combines power, coverage, and effectiveness with atomization technology, which breaks water into tiny droplets, thus lessening users’ water consumption by about 45 percent.
Using this technology, Nebia estimates that they can save one billion gallons of water by 2021, and six billion gallons by 2024—that is, if we all jump on the bandwagon.
Right now, Nebia by Moen is being offered to Kickstarter backers for $160. When it hits shelves later this year, the Nebia by Moen will retail for $199—which still isn’t a bad price for such a high-tech showerhead. But hey, if you have the option to save $40, why wouldn’t you?
The Kickstarter campaign, which reached its goal of $150,000 within a few hours of being live, according to RealSimple, will run until February 29. And if you make the $160 pledge, you can expect to have your showerhead shipped in May. But even if you wait to buy the Nebia by Moen in stores, you’ll still be saving yourself money in the long run when it comes to your water bill, and that feels just as good as doing your part in saving the planet.
