Bathtubs for Two

Sometimes, you just wanna have some company and save water at the same time. But not all bathtubs are appropriate for two bodies. No one wants to sit on a drain or lean against an overflow so a drain near the center line of the tub eliminates this concern. Ideally, a tub for two would have a slanted back on both sides. Some couples love to have asymetrical slants so that each side offers a different type of reclining comfort.

Measuring for Tub Size

When advising clients on tub sizing, a good place to start is to measure the length from hip to heel of the primary bather. Then, find a tub that is about that length along the bottom interior. For width, the interior bottom should be about 6-8″ wider than the primary bather’s widest part.

Wanna save water…? Consider a Steam Shower

So I know I’ve been waxing poetic lately about water savings. My latest rant is about steam showers. Did you know that a steam shower uses about 1 gallon of water for every 20 minutes of steam shower? So, that means you could take a 30 minute steam shower and use less than 2 gallons of water. That is way, way less than a bathtub which will use between 50 and 90 gallons for that same type of relaxation. It is worth considering investing in a steam unit. We love the Thermasol Pro steam unit. It has a lifetime warranty. In addition, this warranty will cover labor for the first three years. That’s amazing!! It truly is a plug-and-play type of steam unit. The water supply just gets screwed on and it can be plugged in. There is nothing more simple. This will save you on labor costs. And… THERE ARE HEALTH BENEFITS!!

Low Flow Showerhead Promotion

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….
