Long Term Value is Determined By The Price Offset Strategy For The 1.5 gpm "Jet-Stream" Showerhead®

At first glance, The 1.5 gpm “Jet-Stream” Showerhead® appears to be too costly, with Model E-102 at a cost of $30.00 each and Model E-622 at a cost of $110.00 per unit, compared to other 2.5 gpm low-flow shower heads out on the market. For instance, you could purchase a Plastic showerhead for just $5.00 or a Chrome-Plated Plastic or Brass showerhead at $20.00 to $40.00 per unit. Those models may be less expensive intitially, but how long will they last and how will they perform?

Solution: To calculate your long term value, use our free Life-Cycle Analysis (LCA) calculator to determine the reasonable “costs vs benefits” analysis over the reasonable cost savings times expected over the product life. In short, if the product saves you substantially more money and water, has substantially better construction, lasts substantially longer, has substantially greater user acceptance than other brands, and has unique features that make our product maintenance free, our products are worth more in the long term.

This is especially true with products or services that save, improve efficiency, help with ecology and have extended life, and do not corrode or brake when compared to the cheaper products or services. When you purchase “Jet-Stream” Showerhead® products you automatically receive minimum product life (warranty), proven product life expectancy, substantially greater usage and dollar savings, substantially greater user acceptance, and substantially greater water & energy efficiency.
