Upgrading Your Shower With Kohler’s New Fixture Could Save You 40% on Your Water Usage
A warmer, longer soak? Yes, please.

If a sudden surge of water consumption guilt has interrupted your soothing, hot showers more times than you care to count, we have a quick solution that will clear your conscience: Swap your showerhead for the just-launched Statement VES showering collection, which debuted at the annual Kitchen and Bath Industry Show earlier this month. The system features a sleek showerhead and hand shower with a 0.5 GPM (gallons per minute) pause compared to the typical 2.5 GPM (in other words, it allows you to temporarily reduce the stream). Use it wisely and the fixture could help conserve at least 40 percent (!) of your water usage, the brand notes.
And not to worry: Your showering experience won’t be any less satisfying, thanks to the Katalyst Air-Induction Technology, which ensures larger drops that retain heat and also provide strong coverage. So even though you’re technically bathing with less water, you won’t get chilly or feel less clean because of it.
Not only will this simple adjustment help you hold onto more steamy joy and money (goodbye, expensive utility bills) while simultaneously conserving H2O, but it will give your bathroom a polished new look. The showerhead’s minimalist design—a ring outfitted with nozzles around the edge—comes in polished chrome, matte black, and brushed nickel. While it isn’t live on Kohler.com yet, it is available to order through Kohler Signature Stores and Experience Centers. Who said a spa-worthy space can’t also be sustainable?
