The Sloan Act-O-Matic showerhead delivers an invigorating "cone-within-a-cone" spray that has become synonymous with luxury. Water is directed from the showerhead in two distinct circles. This "cone-within-a cone" pattern directs the spray to the whole body for a refreshing shower experience. Used in some of the world's finest hotels, where guest satisfaction is the highest priority, the Act-O-Matic is crafted for performance, quality and durability.
The spring loaded Act-O-Matic is designed to deliver the perfect shower each and every use. Sand or other particles that are carried in the water supply can foul the spray pattern of traditional showerheads. Because the Act-O-Matic spray disc retracts into its drain position when the water is turned off, these particles are washed away. This fast drain feature also prevents residual slow dripping after showerhead use. When the water is turned back on, the spray disc springs out, ready to deliver another perfect shower.
Sloan Act-O-Matic showerheads incorporate a pressure compensating flow restrictor that meets the 2.5 gallon per minutes maximum flow requirements as set by the United States Federal Energy Policy Act and other national and international codes and standards. At 20 psi, the Act-O-Matic comes to full flow and holds that flow across a full range of water pressures. Unlike other showerheads that use fixed orifice flow controls, the Act-O-Matic maintains a consistent, powerful spray that people have come to appreciate and prefer.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. "Do you sell any showerheads that completely shut off water flow?"
A. No, and we are not aware of any showerheads that have the ability to completely stop water flow. With your shower valve still open and the showerhead completely closed, it is possible for hot water to force itself into the cold water line. Once the showerhead is opened again, only hot water flows for a moment, creating a risk of scalding. Showerheads are normally manufactured to dribble a small amount and prevent this from occurring.
Q. "What does it mean that a product is compliant with the Buy American Act (BAA) or with the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA)? Are these products manufactured in the USA?"
A. The Buy American Act is a part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 intended to help stimulate the United States' economy through the purchase of American-made goods. While the Buy American Act portion of the bill primarily regulates government spending, the regulations can help guide conscious consumers who wish to purchase American-made products. In general, an item that meets the requirements of the Buy American Act is assembled in the US and at least 50% of its components are domestically produced. While every single component of these products may not be produced in the US, a large portion are - and that portion is helping our American economy to grow and thrive.
