The Shower Manager’s patented technology makes it different from other devices. Digital shower timers provide a reminder when the time has expired, but have no control over the flow of water. Ultra low-flow heads restrict the flow of water, but do not provide a reminder of showering time nor do they control the flow of water. The Shower Manager is different; it not only times the shower, but also cuts the flow when time is up. This cutting of the flow is often needed to bring a shower to an end, especially for the younger members of the family.
Better shower control can provide multiple rewards. The obvious benefits of water and energy savings can be compelling enough. Some families will also see the added benefit of fewer hassles over showering times. Keeping the family on a regular schedule can also be welcome relief especially during the school year. Shower control can be an important consideration when impacted by drought conditions.
DIY installation generally takes less than 20 minutes; the unit fits to existing shower heads. Another element of this patented technology is that the unit is powered by water pressure and a small 9-volt battery. No electrical connections are required. When the flow of water is cut, this reduction in flow does not impact the mixture of Hot/Cold water, a safety consideration.
The Shower Manager is USA made in Loveland, CO. The current model, Shower Manager III, was introduced in 2010 on the Internet. Sales today continue exclusively on the Internet with demand going beyond the borders of the US. In addition to the US, units are regularly delivered to Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Great Brittan, and Israel. It seems that shower control concerns are a worldwide issue.
The company is family owned and located in Denver, CO with all tech support being locally handled. Don Brunkhardt, the founder, is currently pursuing his 3rd patent on this device.
