  • ShowerStart technology, available in a tub spout system, shower head, hand shower and stand alone ShowerStart TSV, is being adopted by multifamily owners and property managers because of its nonintrusive yet highly effective method of increasing Net Operating Income through reduced utility consumption. It’s also the only solution capable of cost-effectively combating shower-based behavioral waste.

    Behavioral waste occurs when bathers use their time comfortably and efficiently while waiting for hot water to reach the shower. Instead of patiently waiting for cold water to exit the shower head most people leave to do something else.

    Typical activities include brushing teeth, using the washroom and picking out clothes. Because bathing only begins after the tasks have been completed, countless gallons of hot water are unintentionally wasted at the start of every shower.

     

    In the summer and fall of 2012 Evolve Technologies conducted a study in conjunction with Southern California Gas and Linc Housing to validate the effectiveness of ShowerStart to simply and effectively reduce hot water consumption in multifamily settings.

    The four month study, conducted in 6 units at Linc’s City Gardens property in Santa Ana, CA, with a single function 1.5 gpm shower head + ShowerStart TSV indicated savings in the 30% – 40% range. With a property-wide savings projection of nearly 1.5 million gallons of hot water per year, Linc Housing quickly installed units in all 274 residences.
