Deva have launched the award winning Awatea Satin Jet water saving shower head, what’s new about this eco water saving shower head I hear you ask?
Well its not a simple case of restrictive flow as with most water saving shower heads it is a truly new concept, I first saw this shower head in London at the bathroom show and I was fully impressed with its performance, that’s what makes it different, how it works is by using it’s twin jet technology, The twin jets oppose each other water smashes into the opposing jet stream creating 3000 tiny water droplets per second delivering a wide spray pattern giving a truly drenching feeling. It also encumbers a massage setting if the soft drenching is not suiting your mood the then just switch over with the push button.
Whilst in the water saving mode the handset will only use 9 liters per minute, it is available as both a shower handset and a fixed shower head.
To the indigenous Maori of New Zealand, Awatea means moving from darkness to light, the awakening of a new dawn.
RRP £80.00 Awatea Shower Handset, RRP £99.00 Awatea Fixed Shower Head
The Double Ended Cubix Bath from Claygate Distribution Ltd is a stunning new bath with contemporary looks and eco-friendly credentials to add to their Artisan range of luxury bathroom products. The Baths are manufactured using a technically advanced laminating process called Corincast, which makes a solid, super-strong acrylic product. Extra layers of fiberglass and reinforced polyester resin are added during production, giving the bath superior torsional rigidity. The last layer seals the shell and makes the underside of the bath smoother and easier to handle.
This cutting edge design combined with the newly developed Corincast technology means that the baths use 25% less water than comparable baths while the extra layers of fiberglass gives greater insulation, resulting in the bath water keeping its temperature for longer.
The Cubix bath is available in two styles with a choice of double ended baths that come in five sizes and single-ended baths that come in three sizes. All baths can be drilled on site to suit your chosen tap configuration.
Available sizes are 1700 x 700, 750 or 800mm or 1800 x 800 or 1000mm.
RRP £280.00 (1700 x 700mm) up to £480.00 (800 x 1000mm).
The Guru Tap Designed by young Italian designer Ernesto Messineo who is based in Milan is defiantly individual in design, form and function.
Guru Tap is an eco friendly Basin mixer tap that provides you the opportunity to save water also delivering enough water to use. As you can see in the picture that it directs water flow in an unusual way because water first goes up and then down to a point. The top of the tap is designed from a tinted but transparent material that allows you to see the way water flow through the mixer tap.
I am sure that we will be seeing more from this collection in the UK in the future, I hope to be seeing more of Ernesto Messineo work as well as he is a truly talented designer.

Lakes Bathrooms Have announced that all their silver anodizedÂ finish doors and Shower enclosures will now come as standard with their AllClearâ„¢Â stay cleanÂ coating at no extra cost.
Lots of manufacturers have a versions ofÂ glass treatment for shower doors and screens like ClearShieldÂ® but none offer this as a standard feature.
How does it workÂ ?
Look into a microscope and you would see that standard glass actually has a pitted surface to which water, lime scale and soap scum can cling, building up with every shower and requiring regular scrubbing to keep your enclosure clean and hygienic.
Inspired by nature, AllClearâ„¢ coating forms an invisible, microscopically smooth shield to prevent this build up of grime.
AllClearâ€™s hydrophobic properties cause water to run off freely, washing away residue and dirt as it goes.

There are many ways to save water and in todays energy efficient climate we need to save water but without loosing the function and design.
In the early days of water saving devices we had products such as dual powered immersion heaters which used to switch between sink and bath as differing power options. sink would only heat a small volume of water so you saved on electricity, bath would heat the whole cylinder.
