California Faucets’ affordable thermostatic shower system adds water savings to its repertoire of impressive features

January 12, 2012 | Product Release

StyleTherm® CALGreen Compliant - Release Photo(Huntington Beach, CA, January 12, 2012) California Faucets’ new version of StyleTherm® has set the standard for thermostatic valve technology as the first system on the market that is entirely California Green Building Standards Code (CALGreen) compliant. Consumers stand to benefit from the breakthrough on several fronts. The innovation that led the company to the development of the first CALGreen-compliant thermostatic valve fulfills California’s stringent new water conservation requirements, while providing users spa-like shower enjoyment at an affordable price point.

To meet the standards set forth by the nation’s first statewide green building code, StyleTherm employs a unique two-outlet diverter valve with volume control features. The diverter allows users to toggle between single shower applications, thus meeting CALGreen code requirements, while still offering all the superior features and benefits of a thermostatic shower system, including volume control, anti-scald safety protection, and exact water temperature setting.

The CALGreen version of StyleTherm has a volume control dial that engages up to two shower applications individually. By turning the dial clockwise, the user engages a single application, such as a showerhead, for example. Turned counterclockwise, the previous application discontinues and a new application, such as body sprays or a handheld shower engages. Unlike pressure balance systems, the CALGreen version StyleTherm has full volume control, allowing precise, independent on/off and flow rate control of each application. Each individual application can flow at a rate of up to two gallons per minute (GPM).

CALGreen-compliant StyleTherm is available in three trim options––Round Traditional, Round Contemporary, and Rectangular Transitional––that complement California Faucets’ 25-plus handle styles and more than 34 decorative finishes. List price for CALGreen-compliant StyleTherm is $429. Trim is sold separately and is priced according to style and finish.
