We have heard. Yes, we have received the phone calls that the newer kitchen faucets do not have the pressure that the old ones did. We like the kitchen faucets that we sell. But our new restrictions which dictate that the faucets flow at 1.75 gallons per minute, have really affected the way the faucets feel and perform. But, the water situation is dire. And, we know… We used to use our kitchen faucet as a scrubbing device as well. But the fact of the matter is that we should be scrubbing first and then using the water to rinse. Shock!! What?? Yes, I am telling you that you should scrub your dishes and pots with a brush or sponge or… whatever and then use the faucet to rinse. And this also goes for the kitchen sink. It should be scrubbed with a brush or sponge or whatever and the faucet should be used to rinse it. But the pressure of the water should not be used as a scrubbing device. We are in a drought! Sorry to be the naysayer but we really need to be mindful of how much water is coming out of our faucets. And the old ones are real water wasters. These new ones will save at least 30% over an older faucet from 2012 and earlier. And if your faucet is older than 1997 or so, you are really using a lot of water. If you are not ready to buy a new faucet, you could turn the angle stops down under your sink. What is an angle stop? You know, those little handles under the sink that turn the water on and off. You could turn those down to help reduce the flow of water out of the faucet.
We have had so many requests for low flow shower heads that we decided to make a special! These heads are good heads. These will be great for those of us who live here and understand how serious our water situation is. These will also be great for those of you with vacation rentals because it is very possible that your guests do not understand our drought and water restrictions. The little one runs at 2.0 GPM. The larger one runs at 1.75 GPM. Surprisingly, we like the 1.75 one better. But it is more expensive. The 1.75gpm one is available in chrome and brushed nickel. And we are keeping both of them in stock so you can walk in and leave with your new super low flow shower head. The 2.0 GPM showerhead represents a 20% savings over a standard shower head. The 1.75 GPM represent a 30% savings over a standard shower head. And for you super watersavers out there, we even have 1.5 GPM showerheads which represent a 40% savings. We are not currently keeping those in stock. We can plug all of these in for you in our showroom see you can see them running. And, of course, we are not even mentioning the showerheads that have had their flow restrictors removed over the past several years when we are factoring the water savings. We are certain that none of our customers would have done this. Right? Grinnnnn….
I really liked this list even though it had very little to do with plumbing
