5 Easy Ways to Improve Your Outdoor Shower

Whether you’re a home improvement extraordinaire, a DIY enthusiast, or even an unapologetic exhibitionist (we don’t judge), your outdoor shower is a place of pride. And we totally understand where that obsession comes from.

For some, an outdoor shower may serve as a functional device that washes away the most stubborn grains of sand after a day at the beach. But for others, the outdoor shower is so much more. It’s a getaway, a respite, a place where you can get creative with your design and build something beautiful.

We Rocked. We Rolled. And We Showered at Firefly 2016.

We’re kinda tired, a tad hungover, we’ve lost our voice and we may have danced a bit too awkwardly for our own good – but one thing is for sure, we had an absolute blast at this year’s Firefly Music Festival. Firefly 2016 marked our first time sponsoring the event. And we could not be prouder.

MFNW_BGBut here’s the thing, we didn’t want to just show up, set up a booth, print our name on a sign and call it a day. We wanted to make a positive impact on the festival. We wanted to deliver an awesome experience to those in attendance. So we donated over 400 of our Speakman Reaction Shower Heads to Firefly.

The Dangers Of Screw-On Eyewashes

screw-on eyewash

The Scenario

You’re an employer and you have hazardous material in your workplace. That hazardous material can come in the form of soaps, chemicals, cleaners and other substances that cause injury to the eyes and skin. OSHA and ANSI require that you install an eyewash at your workplace.

But here’s the thing, this stuff is confusing. If you’re new to selecting emergency equipment, a screw-on eyewash can be super enticing. They’re affordable, convenient and attach directly onto your existing faucet.

In theory, a screw-on eyewash sounds delightful. But as convenient as they may seem, screw-on eyewashes carry a ton of baggage that may result in costly citations.

How important is going green in the shower?

The need to conserve water is important for two reasons: first, drought conditions exist in many areas of the US and the world; second, the amount of energy required to process water into potable water is surprisingly large.

The amount of potable water used in the US is staggering.  Take showering, for example:

Showering is one of the leading ways we use water in the home, accounting for nearly 17% of residential indoor water use—for the average family, that adds up to nearly 40 gallons per day. That's nearly 1.2 trillion gallons of water used in the United States annually just for showering, or enough to supply the water needs of New York and New Jersey for a year!” (EPA Watersense 2016)
