About

For decades, the 1% has had showers that spray them from both directions. Why shouldn't you have this same experience?

I think we all should. That's why I invented the Hydra Shower Rod.

The Hydra Shower Rod in Action
The Hydra Shower Rod in Action

When I was on my honeymoon, I stayed at a fancy hotel and realized that rich people have been taking showers like this for decades. When we got home, our normal shower made us feel like we were only taking half of a shower.

I knew I had to fix this. Not just for me, but for everybody. 

After a year of prototypes, the Hydra Shower Rod was conceived. Hydra’s innovative technology uses the shower rod to route water from the user's original shower head to the other side of the shower.This revolutionary design means any family can shower like a millionaire without spending $5k+ to redo the plumbing in their bathroom.

Highlights:

- No loss of water pressure: As long as you currently aren't experiencing water pressure issues, using the Hydra won't cause a significant loss of water pressure.

- Not twice the water usage: While we can't guarantee the water output of every shower, our testing has shown that using the Hydra normally will only equate to a 15%-20% increase in your water usage. 

Hydra in the News:

The Hydra can be easily set up in a matter of minutes. Just tighten the tensioners and add the adapter between the water output and your shower head. It takes just minutes.

Distinctive and generous, the Hydra has a simple design that looks great in any bathroom. Currently, the Hydra will ship in one color that we call "weathered steel". 

If the project gets funded fully we may offer other colors. You will have the ability to pick your color before we ship your Hydra.  

The Hydra is fully adjustable. You can easily turn off either shower head at any time. 

The Hydra Shower Rod can fit any shower between 3ft and 7ft. Each Hydra is custom made. As soon as the campaign ends, we will send you a welcome packet that includes a handy tape measure that we invented to help you easily measure your shower. Once you measure it, send us the length and we will start custom building your Hydra Shower Rod from our headquarters in the US. We will send out more specific instructions after the campaign ends.

The official "Measuring Tape with a Suction Cup on the end". We are still working on a better name.

Risks and challenges

The most heartbreaking thing you can see on Kickstarter is to look at the page of a project you were really excited about and read a bunch of comments that say "where is my ________". We have delayed launching our Kickstarter for several months to ensure we are at a place where we can begin production immediately following the end of the campaign.

The biggest potential risk we face in this project is tooling. It takes about 4-8 weeks to make the molds we need and then we begin the process of refinement. We won't stop until it's perfect and we've padded our timeline to account for multiple rounds of tweaking.
