PRLog - Aug. 17, 2011 - Denver, CO Global Network Solutions (GNS) provides an Online tool to compute the cost of showering. It is scaled to the family with inputs for family size, current showering times, proposed times, showerhead GPM, and local water and heating tariffs. The end result provides an array of information including the potential savings with shorter showering times. A family with teens has the potential to save hundreds of dollars annually.
There is no-charge for this service and the results can be computed in minutes. Here is the link:
Water providers maintain that redundant showering is one of the biggest water waters inside the home. These providers often suggest that a 5-minute shower is sufficient to properly cleanse the body. While many bathers would take exception to this guideline, few would disagree those 15-30 minutes showers are wasteful.
Low-flow showerheads do provide some control, but do not limit the duration of the shower. Digital and hour glass timers provide a good reminder, but lack compulsion to finish showering. Often good intentions to limit times fade as the stimulation of showering takes over. Many households not only feel the strain in the budget, but also in squabbles over showering times. Cold water showers also serve as a rude reminder.
GNS offers a product that limits both the amount and the duration of the shower. It goes by the name of the Shower Manager and actually cuts the water flow when time is up. Don Brunkhardt, founder of the company, states that many families do not realize the potential for savings. He goes on to say the calculator will help identify shower time abuses. Quite often drought, water restrictions, and surcharges make water usage a critical topic.
GNS is a Denver, CO based company using a manufacturing facility in Loveland, CO. The Shower Manager is a patented technology that controls both the amount and time of showering. Once the time frame has expired the water flow is cut by 2/3, leaving just enough to finish showering. The product is approaching its 3rd year of production with a broadening market, both in the United States and abroad. The unit is sold exclusively over the Internet at the GNS web store below.
