The multi-function Enviâ„¢ Eco-Performance Rainshower showerhead is the first water-efficient rainshower from Moen and features its innovative Immersion ® technology ‚¬â€œ a self-pressurizing system that increases the force and flow of water delivery.
This new eight-inch rainshower offers a flow rate of 2.0 gallons per minute (gpm), 20 percent less than the industry standard of 2.5 gpm, and contributes to the earning of valuable LEED ® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) points. Multiple settings satisfy every type of shower user, while maintaining the same level of performance consumers have come to expect from Moen.
“With a typical rainshower consumers may experience a ‚¬Ëœdrooping' water pattern ‚¬â€œ similar to what you might see from a watering can, said Mike Reffner, group product manager, Moen. “Envi's Immersion technology eliminates this, allowing users to get the water pressure they desire, while saving water.
The Envi Rainshower has a convenient lever to adjust the water delivery from a powerful spray (concentrating water from only 30 nozzles) to a softer shower (expanding flow from as many as 100 nozzles).
Unlike some low-flow showerheads that simply restrict the water flow, Envi preserves the powerful stream that consumers are accustomed to from full-flow rainshowers. Moen's Immersion technology actually increases the velocity of the water streams hitting the body, treating users to a full, satisfying spray that feels like the flow of a standard 2.5 gpm rainshower.
Moen uses the science of biomimicry, exploring nature-inspired innovation, to create the most “naturally efficient spray coverage possible on the Envi Rainshower. This showerhead features Fibonacci-inspired, spiral-shaped nozzle patterns to provide full-body coverage that envelops the user in invigorating body sprays, no matter what the spray setting.
The oversized Envi Eco-Performance Rainshower is available in popular finishes, including Chrome and LifeShine ® Brushed Nickel, to coordinate with bathroom faucets and accessories.
