Nebia: The Showerhead of the Future

The new and innovative Nebia showerhead is made available through a successful Kickstarter campaign kicked off in August 2015. The campaign was able to raise millions past its goal to begin production and delivery of early bird units last year. The Nebia showerhead is a result of over five years of development in seeking the best combination of function and design to deliver a great shower experience while greatly reducing the amount of water that is wasted during showers. The Nebia showerhead adopts technologies from aerospace engineering to optimize every aspect of the shower nozzle and uses patented H2MICRO™ technology to reduce water usage by up to 70 percent per shower. The Nebia showerhead atomizes water into millions of tiny droplets with over 10 times more surface area than your regular shower. The Nebia showerhead will set a whole new industry standard by only dispersing 0.75 Gallons Per Minute (GPM), while the leading EPA WaterSense showerhead disperses 2.0 GPM; and even less than the industry standard of 2.5 GPM.

The Nebia showerhead also helps conserve energy used to heat up the water that is dispersed through it. It has been designed to be over 13 times more thermally-efficient than the standard showerhead. Based on an average Californian household of four, you can expect to save over 21,000 gallons of water per year and an estimated $397.00/year off utility bills. With these estimated water and energy savings, the Nebia showerhead is a great return on the investment. The Nebia showerhead can now be ordered for $399.00 and will be shipped by early 2017. Test users have described the experience as the best shower they have ever taken and perhaps one day showerheads like these will become the standard for water and energy-efficient showerheads.
