Power-shower feeling with a third less water

Bristan, power shower, DHW
The spray pattern from Bristan’s EVO shower handsets is said to give a feeling that is better than a power shower while using 36% less water.

The patented Fluidic spray technology used in Bristan’s range of EVO shower handsets are described as ‘creating a warmer, more luxurious shower experience that blankets the body, yet actually uses less water than a power shower. The innovation is in the handset itself, so any mixer shower can be upgraded to deliver this spray pattern simply by replacing the existing handset.

The spiral spray pattern in the handset produces large droplets of water that retain heat for longer, combined with a dense spray pattern.

The overall perception is a doubling of water flow, even though no more water is actually being used. 5 l of water feels like 8 l, so water usage is reduced by over a third compared to a power shower.

The build-up of lime scale is minimal, and the handset is maintenance free.
