May 16, 2012 - PRLog -- Denver, CO    Global Network Solutions is offering a $20.00 Off Summer Special  on their  shower control device, the Shower Manager.  The Special is valid on all Online offers placed through July 15, 2012.

The Shower Manager is an automated shower control application.  It is unique in that it cuts the water flow after a preset time.   This patented technology of cutting the flow provides parents the constraint often needed to end a shower.   Without a means to control the shower flow, showering times often linger especially for families with teenagers.

Summertime compounds showering use.  Kids home from school, ball practice, warm weather, etc. all make demands on the hot water reserves.   Much of the showering is done when Mom & Dad aren’t home.  Without constraints, utility bills grow and family squabbles over showering times can ensue.    Until the introduction of the Shower Manager, few effective household shower control options were available.

Digital shower timers suctioned on the shower wall provided a reminder of the time, but did nothing to restrict the flow and bring the shower to a conclusion.  Low-flow showerheads restrict the flow to 1.5 GPM; an amount not found sufficient by many women trying to rinse a full-head of hair. These or smiilar devices require the bather to “voluntarily” bring the shower to an end.  The use of these devices often ended in frustration and subsequent removal.

Installation of the Shower Manager typically takes no longer than installing a showerhead.  The application  fits between the shower supply pipe and the showerhead.    The unit is operated by a small battery and water pressure.  No electrical connections are needed unlike the larger commercial applications.  Ten minutes is typically all that is required to install and program the application.

Keeping showering times within reason can result in big savings. A family with teenagers can be the big winners; savings of hundreds annually is not unusual. The following link can show the savings.  These estimates can  be fined tuned to local utility rates.

In addition to the dollar savings, many parents find the application “priceless.”  They no longer have to be the shower-time cop or raise their voice or knock on the bathroom door.  It is not often that a home conservation device provides both economic and social rewards.

The Shower Manager has three full-flow time settings: 5, 8 or 11 minutes.  Sixty-seconds prior to the change in flow, a beeping tone alerts the bather of the change.  As the full-flow time expires, the flow is cut by 2/3, leaving just enough to finish rinsing, but not enough to encourage continued showering.   A 5-minute reset interval prevents extending the shower.

The Shower Manager has been installed by 12,500 households worldwide since its inception in 2009. Uncontrolled showering, it seems, is a worldwide issue.
Global Network Solutions is a family owned company located in Denver, CO, USA, with a manufacturing facility arrangement in Loveland, CO, USA.  The unit retails for $139.00 on the Internet.
