Conserve.  It is one of the first things we learn when seeking to live a more eco conscious existence. Conserving saves resources and money.  There are many aspects of daily living where one can conserve – including showers.

When it comes to showers, conserving can mean several things. Not showering all together is certainly one spectrum of conserving.  If not showering is too much to take in, taking a shorter shower or one where less water is used is another.  The Simply Conserve Pause-the-Flow Showerhead, available at the Earth911 store for just $5.99, makes the latter easy.

Simply Conserve has been offering conservation money and resource-saving products for over two decades, products that are affordable, easy to install and that integrate into your lifestyle without getting in the way.

Now no matter whether shade of ‘conserve’ you are, the words Gallons Per Minute (or GPM) will inevitably pop up when searching for the perfect showerhead. In addition to three spray settings, the Simply Conserve Pause-the-Flow Showerhead also offers a pause button (what a great idea).  The pause button slows the flow of water to virtually off — or ‘trickle’ according to the company.

This pause feature is great for those times when you are not-quite-done-showering but still need to say, soap or shave (for all you shave-in-the-shower folks out there).  An internal pressure compensator ensures uniform performance regardless of water pressure you choose. About the only thing this showerhead doesn’t offer — shower karaoke (we’ll leave that up to you).

According to the manufacturer, the Simply Conserve Pause-the-Flow Showerhead will save you an average of $60 annually on water and energy bills (when compared to higher GPM alternatives).  At just $5.99, the Simply Conserve Pause-the-Flow Showerhead is sure to pay for itself dozens of times over in no time at all.

Weighing only 4.8 ounces, the Simply Conserve Pause-the-Flow Showerhead easily attaches to any standard showerhead arms.

Earth911 store customers have described the Simply Conserve Pause-the-Flow Showerhead as ‘easy to use’ and ‘works well’.

Simply conserve – its in the name.
