News Update for Autumn (2012)

We closed out the summer with a fun giveaway of a great product. Shauna Carritt Gerke won a Bricor B100 Max ultra low flow shower head by leaving a comment sharing how she conserves water – we hope that the showerhead will be a water saving pleasure for her and her family. We enjoyed the many, many comments we received and suppose the biggest regret with any giveaway is that you can only giveaway one item and there are always so many great entries. It may be a partial remedy to share that we will be hosting one additional showerhead giveaway in the next few months. It won’t be until 2013, but we’ll be using another Bricor showerhead product when finishing the main floor bathroom and will review this new product as well as host another giveaway. Hope we will get many more interesting comments at that time!
