Water Saving Showers – Satinjet Awatea from Deva

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
