Oakville, Ontario... Tired of your same old shower routine? Now it's easy for consumers to bring a comforting and refreshing "boost" to their daily experience with the new Moen® Avira™ showerhead. Avira features Moen's new HydroBoost™ technology, allowing for a superior and invigorating shower while also helping to conserve water.

"Consumers want a showerhead with exceptional coverage, but also want to be mindful of the environment," said Peter Fealy, vice president, sales and marketing, Moen Canada. "Thanks to Moen's HydroBoost technology, they won't have to sacrifice, as the new Avira showerhead provides the best of both worlds."

Most showerheads are gravity fed, meaning the water collects in the showerhead and slowly trickles out, creating a low-pressure, drooping effect. New HydroBoost technology allows air to mix with the water to enhance the force of the spray -- all while conserving water and offering maximum coverage.

Avira is also certified to meet WaterSense® criteria, meaning the showerhead meets the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) guidelines as an environmentally responsible and efficient product. It offers a flow rate of 7.6 litres per minute (L/min), using up to 20 percent less water than the industry standard 9.5 L/min models.

The Avira showerhead features a transitional design, complementing most bathroom décor. It offers four distinct spray functions with optimized pressure in each setting, easily allowing consumers to switch back and forth between settings to suit any mood.

In addition, the Avira showerhead is easy to install and fits all standard shower arms. "In only three simple steps -- and within minutes -- consumers can have a new, refreshing and water-saving showering experience," added Fealy.

The Avira showerhead with HydroBoost is available in Chrome and Moen's exclusive Spot Resist™ Brushed Nickel finish, which resists fingerprints and water spots, helping to maintain the brilliance of the fixture. It also offers a limited lifetime warranty.*
