Savings are a constant variable in everyday life and there are numerous steps you can undertake to make clear savings around your home. The installation of the latest from Delta Faucet’s, the 75152 will not only save you water, but it will save you a considerable amount of money in the long run if you find yourself on a variable water meter where you are charged for water used over a fixed sum. This is especially important if you have a home with multiple bathrooms or have numerous people living within your household, who have a demand for a regular water supply for hygiene.
A modern and clean appearance s central to bathroom aesthetics and the Delta Faucet 75152 has this aspect upon lock down. The base appearance has 4 large spray holes which may sound like an odd styling choice, but it ensures that there is minimal clogging no matter how much you use the unit and it also allows for a large amount of pressure to be generated which facilitates general hygiene and cleaning greatly.
It comes with a clean chrome finish, as one would expect for a shower fitting and it also comes with a built in, aesthetically pleasing volume control leaver which gives you excellent leverage over just how much water pressure you wish to generate at any given point. At full pressure, the same amount of water is saved as lower pressures, yet you can still enjoy the benefits of a refreshing shower with the excellent water saving abilities of this unit.
WATER SAVING TECHNOLOGY
SO what does water saving technology in a shower head actually look like. Within the Delta Faucet comes H2O Kinetic technology that effectively stores water and eventually expels it at much less volumes than if the unit was not installed. This results in you saving water, as less is required to reach the pressures that you desire.
What this means in practice is that you ultimately have two shower modes that you can engage. These are larger water droplet mode and comfort spray. The larger water droplet mode works by engaging the H20Kinetic technology which produces larger water droplets from a lesser amount of water. This means that much less extra residual water is wasted than in normal showers, and the effect when having a shower is warmer water combined with an incredibly refreshing drench effect, where you feel enveloped by the shower and its abilities.
The other mode you can engage is the much softer water saving comfort spray, which is a much softer, smaller water droplet mode. This is comparable to your standard shower, but thanks to the installed technology you save a considerable amount of water.
Whilst all this technology sounds rather superb, what does it mean in terms of figures and numerics? Well, your average shower will utilise 2.5 gallons of water a minute. With the Delta Faucet 75152 installed, it will consume 1.85 gallons of water a minute, exerting just the same performance figures as a standard shower. Whilst it may not seem like a substantial saving, over the course of the year users have reported saving around 35% on their water bills as a result of installing the unit, which will more than likely amount to several hundred dollars in terms of savings. The unit is also fully WaterSense certified.
- Aesthetically pleasing design with a good, robust feel
- The two main shower settings will satisfy most needs whilst also delivering good performance
- Pressure generated is right in line with a standard shower fitting
- Impressive water saving capabilities
- 5 year warranty
- There are only two real shower modes, less than some other models
- The unit is noisy, especially through walls the shower is installed on
The Delta Faucet 75152 has excellent water saving capabilities and should definitely be considered if you are in the market for an inexpensive and incredibly reliable water saving shower head. DO be aware the noise levels are considerable and it is not too flexible in terms of shower modes however. I hope that this Delta Faucet 75152 review has been helpful.
