"10/15+ FLOWCHOICE SHOWERHEAD"™
NEW VERSION OF THE 10-MINUTE SHOWER THAT SAVES 15+ GALLONS OF WATER.
Patented - Albert L. Schmidt - Inventor
A majority of showerheads Sold & Used today Dispense 2.5 Gallons of Water Per/Minute.
A 10-Minute Shower = 25 Gallons of Freshly Treated, Filtered, Purified, then Heated, Water.
Water Used = 15 Gallons Heated Water (60%)
10 Gallons Cold Water (40%)
Total 25 Gallons Used with 0 Saved!
A 10-Minute Shower with the NEW 10/15+ Flowchoice Showerhead™
1. User enjoys a 2-Minute showering wet down period. Water Usage = 4 Gallons.
2. User then moves the showerhead in any direction within a 360° Circle Engaging an Internal
Flow Control Valve, then lathers-up & scrubs-down, therefore during this 6-Minute period the
Water Usage (at a Trickling Flow) = Only 1.5 Gallons of Water.
3. User then returns the showerhead to a Normal Flow position, and enjoys a Warm Water
2-Minute Rinse-Off period with the Water Usage = Only 4 Gallons.
4. We've Accurately Tested the Total Water Usage = Only 9.5 Gallons!
5. The Famous "California 5-Minute Shower" still uses 12.5 Gallons in their Water Savings Plan.
My Mount Prospect, Illinois Public Works Department informed me that our "Daily" Water Consumption is approximately 4,000,000 Gallons of Fresh, Purified, Treated Water.
Our Mount Prospect's water supply coming from Lake Michigan through the City of Chicago's Department of Water Management, and appears to be Moved (PUMPED) to and through 4 Separate locations before even reaching My Home!
The Mount Prospect Community Development Department supplied me with their Demographic Information from the 2012 Census Report. This Report indicated there were 38,825 Residents of ages 10 - 64. I'll use these 38,825 Residents in my discovery findings, which should prove Interesting and Fact Worthy!
- What If -
38,825 Mount Prospect residents ages 10 - 64 Saved 15 Gallons of Water Daily via my 10/15+ Flowchoice Showerhead™, 38,825 x 15 Gallons = 582,375 Gallons SAVED DAILY of Fresh, Chemically Treated, Purified, and Heated Water - Saved also was the 582,375 Gallons of Polluted Waste Water to Pump & Treat, in just One Village mind you... Since we've just SAVED 582,375 Gallons of Water from being used, and this Water is Moved (PUMPED) 4 Times before reaching our homes, then in reality we have also SAVED the ENERGY Cost of moving 2,329,500 Gallons!
