When you have a big family everything costs more; groceries, clothing and especially utilities, and no utility bill is as out of control as our water bill.  No matter how many times I beg and plead with my children to take shorter showers or to not let the water run while they brush their teeth, my water bill keep rising every month.  I’ve tried to come up with creative ways to get the kids to take shorter showers (my favorite was a cooking timer set for 10 minutes) and I’ve also become much more mindful of how much water I personally use, but it seems that it’s all for naught.

When I received an email from Mom Select about a review program for Waterpik’s EcoFlow showerhead I knew that I had to try it, thankfully I was chosen to participate in the program, hopefully helping put an end to outrageous water bills!

Features of the Waterpik EcoFlow showerhead:

*Can save up to 1 gallon of water per minute
*Can save up to $100 annually
*5 powerful spray settings
*Exclusive water-saving fingertip control reduces water flow to a trickle while you shampoo, condition, shave and wash
*OptiFLOW technology improves water force by up to 30%
*Showerhead detaches from base for easy hand-held use

I’m rather picky when it comes to showerheads, I want great flow that’s powerful enough to get the job done without being overly powerful and making the shower painful.  We’ve used other low flow shower heads in the past and quickly replaced them with regular heads as the water power was just awful, so I was a little skeptical about the EcoFlow at first.  My husband who always takes showers was also skeptical, but I convinced him to install the EcoFlow and give it a try!

First of all I have to comment on how easily this showerhead installs; it fits on any standard shower arm and doesn’t require thread take—a definitely plus!  Since we already had a showerhead that was similar in design it only took about 5 minutes to remove the old shower head and install the EcoFlow showerhead, which was a big plus for my husband!  After the EcoFlow shower head was installed I decided to be the first to try it…I was instantly impressed!  While I can tell a difference between the EcoFlow showerhead and my old showerhead, the difference wasn’t enough to cause me to have an unpleasant shower experience, as a matter of fact, the opposite was true—I actually like the Waterpik EcoFlow showerhead much better than our old one!  I love the different settings and the circular massage feels amazing after a long stressful day!  The fact that the Waterpik EcoFlow works great and saves us money, well that’s a huge plus and a definite win-win in my book!
