Crowdfunding Methven’s Rua Doesn’t Sacrifice Shower Experience for Water Conservation By Abhilash Thakur Posted on October 17, 2017 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Share on Pinterest Share on Linkedin Share on Tumblr The problem with most water-conserving showerheads is the experience. Often with less water usage comes mists and clouds that are not as powerful or cover the entire body. Luckily, the next generation of water-conserving showerheads is here and it’s called Rua. Designed by New Zealand company Methven, Rua offers a breakthrough spray technology unlike any of its competitors. The technology and it’s unique shape are intrinsically linked in an enduring union of function and form. Rua utilizes hidden nozzles which generate individual jets of water that collide against precisely angled surfaces. In that moment of collision, the water travels across the surface edge and launches out from the channel, creating powerful fans of water that deliver a flow rate of 1.8 gallons (6.8 liters) per minute (complying with upcoming regulations in California.)* Because of Rua’s innovative design, you can feel good and save money on the water you are saving while enjoying a full-body, invigorating shower experience. Rua even delivers 20% more spray force and 2x the skin contact coverage compared to traditional needle jet showers. What does this mean? You don’t have to worry about any leftover soap on your body or in your hair. Rua rinses faster more effectively and while keeping you warm. What I also love about Rua is the elegant minimalistic shape. At first glance, you wouldn’t think this showerhead could be so powerful. It features a chrome surround and distinctive continuous slot that frames the inner faceplate and conceals the engine within. And, it is made to last for years to come without any chance of discoloration over it’s lifetime. Rua is available now for pre-sale on Indiegogo.
