“Enjoy double the savings with this hot water saving, low flow showerhead with Evolve's ShowerStart technology”
How It Works
The Evolve Roadrunner Showerhead is a non-aerating, low flow showerhead. The ShowerStart™ technology behind the Roadrunner monitors the water temperature and “triggers a trickle as soon as the water reaches 95 F (35 C). When you hear the “hot water is ready trickle, simply flip the switch on the showerhead to start your warm, luxurious shower. When you're done, the showerhead automatically resets itself for the next shower. So, there's no more guessing or guilt about running hot water down the drain – only the newfound freedom of knowing you're actually saving hot water, while your shower is warming!
* Full spray pattern: nozzles are throughout spray face and all nozzles are same shape and size.
** Based on family of 3 saving as little as one minute of hot water per shower (1.5 gpm vs. 2.5 gpm at $0.03/gallon hot water cost).

How to Install
Optional: small towel/rag and pliers/wrench
- Twist off the existing showerhead; if you need pliers, first put a small towel over the showerhead for better grip and protection.
- Wrap plumber's tape in a clockwise direction 5 or more times around the shower pipe.
- Hand tighten your new showerhead onto the shower pipe as tight as possible.
- Turn the water on and check for leaks; if leaking occurs, hand tightening again.
- If leaking continues, use pliers to tighten; but first cover the showerhead with a small towel for better grip and protection.
