Aqua View Inc. has introduced the Showermi$er, a new and revolutionary water saving system that attaches to the showerhead in RVs, boats and anything with a shower. It redirects cold water that normally goes down the drain back into the fresh water tank.
At the same time, Aqua View president Gus Searcy has announced that the product will be distributed nationwide by NTP-STAG, a division of Keystone Automotive Operations, the largest distributor of RV parts in the U.S. Searcy also says that Forest River, America’s largest RV manufacturer, will be installing the Showermi$er in new selected models during the coming year. Additionally, Searcy says that Camping World, the largest RV dealer in the U.S., will be providing both sales and installation support nationwide.
In less than four seconds, the Showermi$er shows when the hot water has arrived by using its unique and patent-pending color-changing technology. A shower is then ready to be taken and not a drop of cold water is wasted.
With this innovative system, called extended stay technology, you can increase your fresh and gray water tank capacities up to 40 percent without changing your tanks, or adding weight. It redirects cold fresh clean water that normally goes down the drain back into the fresh water tank.
