New Water Fixtures

02.26.2013 · Posted in Uncategorized

Next time your suite-mates are complaining about the change in shower heads let them know a few facts about this new sustainable change Stonehill has made.

The majority of res halls and athletic facilities had institutional style shower heads which had the same flow rate as the new ones. The main difference is the spray pattern.

The old shower heads had a poor, inconsistent pattern, allowing some water to come out as a cold mist, while the remaining water would be released at a very uncomfortable velocity. The new, higher end, low flow, heads have an even pattern, but the same amount of water is being released in comparison to the old heads.

These new shower heads are pressure compensated to provide higher flow rate at lower pressures. They are reducing overall water and energy consumption in every dorm building on campus!
