Very few competing technologies
Research has been conducted into pre-existing showerheads of any potential competitors, focusing on identifying showerheads in which the water spray holes are created in the form of clover shapes or quadrangles with one inverted side and arranged in water spray groups with installed with mesh filters.
No other technology was found to exist using clover-shaped or inverted quadrangle spray holes.
Novelty and Inventive Step
The invention specified in the independent claim articles, namely article 1 and article 7, consists of spray holes with adjustable direction and as such differs from the invention specified in the above reference document D1. This difference is not specified in any other reference documents, and is not self-evident to individuals with common knowledge.
Therefore, the claims submitted in article 1 and article 7 constitute a novelty and inventive step. (PCT article 33 paragraphs (2) and (3))
The invention specified in claim articles 2 and 6, which are subordinate to claim article 1, and also specified in claim articles 8 and 12, which are subordinate to claim article 7,is significantly different from the invention specified in the above reference document D1,and this cited difference is not specified in any other reference document, and is not self-evident to individuals with common knowledge. (PCT article 33 paragraphs (2) and (3))
The invention specified in claim articles 1 and 12 can be used for industrial purposes. (PCT Article 33(4))

2. Product Types
Softrong’sshowerheads are available in a line of diverse products customized
for the bathroom and the kitchen.
Showerhead for the kitchen
Easy Access for Washing and Cleaning
The net connected to the interior of the main head body filters microscopic impurities contained in the water, and this additional filtering purifies the water to offer even greater cleansing effects.
The majority of other kitchen showerheads in the market have heads that are fixed in assembly, making it impossible to clean. Softrong kitchen heads enable easy one-touch disassembly so that users can conveniently clean the head of any pollutants and impurities that may accumulate over the course of long term usage, such as water impurities and fungi.
Showerhead for the Bathroom
Globally Patented! A Revolution in Spray Technology! Micro-hole format spray nozzle plate
The benefits of Softrongincluding increased water pressure, water conservation effects, and negative ion benefits are the result of the
core technology embodied in our micro-hole format spray nozzle plate.
Unlike the holes of spray nozzle from other companies that are circular or triangular, our nozzles have been created with ultra-precision holes
in clover, heart or polygon form that are arranged optimally to enable the instant internal pressure within the showerheadto reach 250%
or more higher than pre-existing water conservation showerheads.
This cutting edge scientific technology is protected under our global patent application.
Back view of the spray nozzle plate–specially design holes unique in the global market
Frontal view of the spray nozzle plate
The back of the plate is equipped with specially designed holes (in heart and clover shapes), which merge together 5~7 powerful streams of sprayed water, thereby increasing water pressure while shattering water particles to maximize beneficial negative ions. The plate enables the water to emit natural negative ions at a level 250 times higher than the level of ions near waterfalls, ensuring the most pleasurable showering experience.
The spray nozzle plate is made of SUS(Steel Use Stainless) material, ensuring semi-permanent long-lasting usage. The microscopic holes (0.23~0.26mm) eject shower water with powerful pressure but with relatively gentle sensations, offering optimal skin cleansing and massage effects.

6. An economic product ensuring long-lasting usage
1. platePowerfully increased water pressure
2.5 times stronger increased water pressure!
The micro-sized holes enable the shower to maintain a water pressure of 2.4kgf/cm² even in facilities with low water pressure, and sprays are emitted from across the entire nozzle plate to ensure effective cleansing using a small quantity of water.
Incredible water pressure!
Water pressure may differ by floor level even within the
same apartment building. The amazing Softrong showerhead has been developed
for the benefit of all those users who have been frustrated by weak sprays in the shower!
The frustration experienced by users under weak sprayswhen a shower that should take 10 minutes lasts 20
minutes, 30 minutes …
The micro-sized holes featured in the Softrong showerhead maintains water pressure of 2.4kgf/㎠even
under low pressure conditions and emits sprays across the entire nozzle plate, ensuring effective
cleansing with even a small quantity of water.
2. plateWater conservation effects
Conserve water to save on heating and water bills !
Example of reduced utilities costsfor hot water usage
Softrong’s exclusively patented product that represents a completely innovative approach to water conservation!
Our spray nozzle plates feature microscopically designed hole shapes that reduce water discharge and have the effect of
conserving 60% of water.
Water conservation test
The following is an example of a utilities bill reduced at a commercial venue by conserving hot water usage. Decreasing water discharge is an extremely effective means to reducing the cost of utilities.
Under identical conditions, lifting the showerhead resulted in increased water pressure but 60% less water discharge.

Massage benefits &
showers enhancing well-beingwith negative ions!
The water emitted through our specially designed holes are sprayed through nozzle plate which maximizes the shattering of water particles, which results in generating natural negative ions at a level equivalent to 200 times the level of negative ions emitted near waterfalls.
The gentle yet powerful shower sprays facilitate blood circulation, stimulate the scalp, and help maintain the elasticity of skin.
Gentle yet powerful massage!
Specially designed holes (in heart or clover shapes) that are unique in the global market have the function of merging the water into 5~7 powerful sprays, increasing the cleansing effect and directly stimulating the scalp and skin to ensure a pleasurable shower experience.
It is also referred to as the waterfall effect. The potential energy that is generated when water falls from a high location is converted into electrical energy which has an effect on the water molecules, resulting in negative ions.
The spray nozzle plates on Softrong showerheads utilizes this Leonard effect at a level exceeding natural conditions, by maximizing the shattering of water sprays and water droplets to generate negative ions at a level 200 times higher than found near waterfalls (480.000/cc).
Well-being shower experience!
The greatest feature of Softrong is the ability to generate natural negative ions at a level 200 times more powerful than natural waterfalls (using the Leonard effect) and to offer a powerful mist shower spray that ensures a gentle (water softening effect) yet optimal cleansing experience.
5. plateConvenient usage based on standardized specifications
Easy replacement / installation for everyone!
Softrong showerheads have been designed to maximize user convenience by using standardized specifications and by
enabling easy replacement of the showerhead by hand without any special equipment. Users can rely on our trustworthy
1 year warranty.

What is a micro fine filter?
Replacing the micro fine filter
Long lasting usage with one purchase!
Softrong showerheads contain highly durable plastic micro fine filters, with a convenient system enabling users to easily
disassemble the showerhead by turning the head and clean out any impurities, etc. This design ensures long-lasting usage
with one purchase, maximizing value for customers.

Separate the silicon ring from the body of the showerhead.
The internal filters of the majority of other showerheads available in the market are made of felt-type fabric that collect impurities over the course of long use and are difficult to clean, which necessitates the replacement of the entire showerhead.
By contrast, Softrong’s internal filter is a plastic dual filter made using ultrasonic deposition, which can be cleaned of any impurities, ensuring economic, long-term usage.
The inner filter is easily removed by hand. Remove the filter and begin cleaning. The spray nozzle plate can also be cleaned under flowing water.
After cleaning, slip the filter into place inside and replace the silicon ring into the Softrong rounding hole.
