Reduces the flow and increases the oxygenation of water in showers
LowFlow® is an affordable accessory, made of stainless steel, to reduce water consumption in showers, integrating in one piece a flow controller and the Venturi effect.
The Venturi effect gives volume to the water by mixing it with air, increasing its pressure / speed at the exit of the shower head and thus attenuating the flow rate lowering effect.
When using LowFlow®, we reduce the water consumption without significantly affecting its pressure / speed at the exit of the shower head. The reduction of the flow rate of hot water leads to a reduction of energy used to heat it. The water savings can be up to 60% depending on the water pressure on the network.
Why choose LowFlow®?
In the figures it’s showed the water savings at an apartment and at a house after installing LowFlow®.
“Legionella” bacteria has an aerobic behaviour, therefore LowFlow®, when installed at the input of the hand handle shower hose (connecting it to the faucet), decreases significantly the risk of a legionella outbreak because the water on the hose and shower head it’s completely drained by the lateral holes after closing the faucet.
The remaining water evaporates naturally after a few minutes. Notice that after the closing the faucet the environment near the faucet/valve it´s anaerobic, so it´s not suitable to the proliferation of the bacteria.
Without LowFlow® the probability of legionella proliferation on the water that remains in the hand handle shower hose and the shower head it´s higher because exists contact through the shower head multiple holes, which takes a lot of days to evaporate completely.
LowFlow® it’s easy to remove/disassemble for cleaning and disinfection, which is important when implementing periodic maintenance practices.
