Oxijet – a new way to shower with lots of water pressure but less water

Oxijet 1

Low-flow shower heads have almost become a staple here in the US. With water tables rapidly dropping and a devastating continued drought in the Midwest, conserving water is a must. But the downside of this is that showering is no longer a refuge for water pleasantly beating down on you. That’s something many of us miss.

New Zealand company Felton, in collaboration with Australia’s Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), has developed the Oxijet. The “air shower” showerhead uses a unique aeration insert which draws air into the water stream, expanding its volume, making the shower feel like it’s at full pressure while using 50 percent less water.

Able to be fitted to most existing shower heads, the Oxijet is accredited by the Australian Watermark and Water Efficiency and Labelling Standards and is now available for purchase in Australia. Now if we could only get this here in the States!
