Waterpik Reinvigorates the Shower Head Aisle with New PowerPulse Massage Technology

PowerPulse Delivers Two Times the Massage Force for a Superior
Shower

FORT COLLINS, Colo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Water Pik, Inc., the leader in replacement shower heads introduces the
latest product lineup featuring an all new patented technology,
PowerPulse Massage™, offering two times the massage force compared to
competitor retail brands, Delta® and Moen®. Unlike anything in the
shower head aisle, the PowerPulse Massage creates maximum pulsating
force for a noticeable difference and a superior shower.


By reinventing the way the water pulses in the massage spray setting,
PowerPulse delivers double the massage force with the same amount of
water as its competitors. The new line delivers an invigorating shower
experience with up to nine spray settings including: Full-Body Spray,
PowerSpray™, Eco Spray and the PowerPulse Massage.

Committed to best-in-class engineering for more than 40 years, Waterpik®
has been improving the shower experience with the latest innovations in
the category. But there have been changes in the shower head landscape
since Waterpik invented the Original Shower Massage® in 1974. In 1992,
government water regulations were set in place that limited water flow
from a shower head to no more than 2.5 gallons per minute (GPM)
nationally – causing a decreased feel in pressure for many of today’s
shower head products. As a result, according to consumer research
conducted by Waterpik, one of the primary features consumers look for
when replacing their current shower head is a more powerful shower
experience.

Consumers will see even more decreases in the flow rates of their shower
heads in the coming years, as Colorado will require all shower heads
sold to flow no more than 2.0 GPM effective September 2016. California,
who has suffered a drought for the last several years, will also meet
those requirements as of July next year and then by July 2018 will limit
flow to no more than 1.8 GPM – the toughest restrictions yet. Already in
place, New York currently leads the way for regulations with 2.0 GPM
maximum in place.

“Consumers are consistently looking for better water force in their
showers and with the increase in regulations in the coming years it will
become even more important to engineer shower heads for maximum
efficiency and power,” said Water Pik, Inc. President and CEO, Richard
Bisson. “Waterpik has continually delivered superior shower performance
and we’re proud to add PowerPulse massage to our product line as we
strive to give consumers the shower experience they deserve.”

With the introduction of PowerPulse Massage, Waterpik demonstrates its
continued dedication to delivering power and performance in every
shower. PowerPulse joins Waterpik shower innovations including OptiFlow,
spray selectors on handles, eco-friendly options and more.

Available in a range of models in chrome finish, PowerPulse offers fixed
mount and handheld versions currently at Walmart and The Home Depot, and
coming to Mendards in December 2015 as well as Target in Spring 2016.
Suggested retail prices range from $19.99 to $44.99. To learn more about
