I’ve probably written before that we live in an older home in Florida and it’s a little out of date. We’ve been here for almost 6 years and still have a few major projects left to do. The main project that we keep putting off (mostly because it’s so expensive) is the bathrooms. Think 1985 Florida – coral tile flooring, green cabinet, beige rusted out tub…oh yeah, it’s pretty (not)!
We’ve given it a fresh coat of paint and new accessories to give it a more modern look but we still have the plain, builder-grade shower head. Thankfully this is in the guest bathroom and the only people who use the shower are my parents every few months when they visit. This is also the kids bathroom but they normally shower in our room. The current shower head is certainly not an eco-friendly model.
I decided to give it a little bit of an update in an effort to move the kids to their own bathroom (and out of ours). I received an Oxygenics Power Massage handheld shower head a few months ago but have been hesitant to install it. I am NOT very handy with plumbing and have never attempted to change a shower head myself. My husband just updated the master baths shower head in January but I didn’t see how he did it. This past week I decided it was time to put on my plumber jeans and get the Oxygenics installed!
Wow, that was actually so much easier than I anticipated! It only took me 5 minutes from start to finish and I didn’t even call the hubby for help. It didn’t even leak when I turned the water on (as I pat my back).
Next test was to see if the kids liked it – score! I think I may finally have my bathroom back now that they have a fun new handheld shower head with lots fun sprays (5 to be exact).
The Oxygenic uses anywhere from 20-70% less water than the standard shower heads. Using less water will reduce your energy bill and save you money. It will also save thousands of gallons of water each year. It’s incredibly light-weight (only 2lbs) which makes it perfect for your kids. With a lifetime guarantee the Oxygenics is the perfect shower head for the eco-minded consumer (or for those who want to save money).
Now, I wonder how many times I’m going to have to clean up the bathroom floor after my kids use the shower?
