always looking for ways to treat my environment a little
better so when someone mentioned shower heads with a shut-off
device I hustled down to the local big-box and scrounged
around the plumbing aisle until I found this.
"This" happens to be the Alsons "Incredible Head" Shower
Head. Model #652 C. It is most awesome for three very good reasons:
First, I only paid
$6 for the device. That's with tax. Generally they're

Incidentally, the brand
name I purchased this one under was Peerless but Alsons is the more common
by MASCO. If you'd like to save a gallon or two of gas searching for one you
can buy one on amazon.com here.
