Caroma’s Flow Showerhead Receives WaterSense Approval


SURREY, B.C.—Caroma, a maker of bathroom products, including high-efficiency, dual-flush toilets for commercial and residential use, announced that their first-ever shower product—Caroma Flow, has received WaterSense approval.

The Caroma Flow is the first foray into shower products from Caroma, and it was designed with the same water-conscious mission and technological know-how as their 51 WaterSense toilets. The Caroma Flow high-efficiency showerhead with a nominal flow rate of 1.5gpm/5.7L at 80 psi, includes a precision engineered nozzle that pressurizes water to produce a uniform, and soft yet powerful spray of water; maximizing comfort while saving up to 10 gallons more water than the standard 2.5 gpm showerhead for a 10-minute shower. Incorporating a unique easy-slide spray adjustment, ranging from a wide coverage bathing spray to a concentrated rinse flow, the Caroma Flow showerhead is easy to install in both retrofit and new construction projects.

“We’ve never wavered from our mission of designing and producing products that are innovative and eco-conscious,” said Derek Kirkpatrick, Caroma North America general manager. “Receiving the WaterSense label for our first shower product is proof that our company understands both global and local environmental concerns and is responsive to them in every product we design—not just a select few.”

In 2010, Caroma was recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s WaterSense program for helping to promote water efficiency. Caroma earned an Excellence Award for its number of WaterSense labeled products in the marketplace—all Caroma’s floor-mounted and wall-mounted dual-flush toilet models meet or exceed the standards set by the EPA. Caroma estimates that 99 percent of its toilet sales in the United States in 2010 were WaterSense labeled models.
