KOHLER, Wis. – January 12, 2012 – As homeowners become more attuned to the impact water consumption has on both their wallets and the planet, many seek easy solutions to reduce use. After Kohler’s successful launch in 2009 of the Flipside handshower, engineers soon began researching opportunities to incorporate water savings into the Flipside’s four popular spray functions.
“The technology incorporated into the WaterSense-certified Flipside handshower reduces water consumption by 20 percent without sacrificing experience,” says Les Petch, Performance Showering marketing manager for Kohler.
And with the multiple functions a shower plays in the home, Petch says selecting a water-saving handshower just makes sense. “It brings an element of flexibility and convenience to the shower routine for adults, kids—even pets. It’s also indispensable to keeping the shower clean.”
Multi–function handshowers have traditionally featured a single sprayface with spray options located on a singular sprayface. But with the Flipside, the sprayface simply rotates on its axis, dedicating each side to a spray experience. This not only provides greater surface area for a superb spray, it also makes changing between sprays intuitive and effortless – no struggles to grip the sprayface with soapy hands. Its ease of use is ideal for users of all ages, as well as those with limited hand mobility. Each spray mode has a range of movement, allowing the user to easily position the water stream to the desired angle.
This fundamental sprayface reconfiguration creates four unique experiences on one handshower:
- Koverage – for a traditional, everyday shower with maximum water coverage that is perfect for the morning shower routine
- Kotton – streams a layer of dense, soft, enveloping downpour of relaxation that caresses your skin
- Komotion – a drenching spray that delivers an exhilarating, circular pattern to refresh the senses after a tightly-wound day
- Kurrent – provides a focused and invigorating massage spray to target tired or aching muscles
“The WaterSense-certified Flipside handshower is an ideal way for homeowners to instantly upgrade their shower experience and save water at the same time,” Petch says. “Its four unique experiential spray options introduce the features of a custom home spa to your own home. Your only challenge will be to decide which spray experience to try next.”
The WaterSense-certified Flipside handshower comes in three finishes: Polished Chrome, Vibrant Polished Nickel, and Vibrant Brushed Nickel.
