Stream is a realistic approach to reducing your water bill without changing your use or affecting your water pressure. It is backed by science and it will not compromise the natural attributes of the water you use everyday. Streams can save you up to 25% on your water bill by compressing the air in your water line.
Has two core functions: exert a back pressure to compress out turbulence and regulate your flow rate to reduce overconsumption
Achieved by moderating your hydrodynamic psi
Plumber is not usually needed for installation
Installation can be completed within 10 to 15-minutes
Installed on the property side of the water meter
Includes size adapter for 1 in. pipe
Compresses the air in your water line resulting in a steady stream of water through your meter

Not That Easy To Install
At least for now I gave this a 2-star rating, only because I believe in the concept. My water meter is in the front yard down in a plastic lidded box. The problem is if you take the meter to PVC conversion fitting lose you have to be able to spread it apart (At least 1 1/8" to 1 1/2") to one side or the other either back or forward. That is hard to do when you have a solid connection on the inlet and outlet side of the meter. My other concern is once installed how easy is it to access if the device fails. Notice pic-3, the device installed in a piece of 3/4" pipe, the inner circle is spring-loaded to depress forward with a demand for water. What happens if the spring will not depress or gets stuck open. Their literature says this device is good for 5 years. The thought I had was to go downstream ( I have 1" Sch-40 PVC) and add a series of fittings to install and/or easily remove the device. Not wanting to add another box and lid right behind my existing water meter box I contacted the people at E-Z FLO to see if I could put the device downstream, and would it affect the performance of the device. They said you could go 5-7 more feet past the meter. I must say this device sounds intriguing. I now have to decide if I want to dig up my front yard and add another lidded box right after my existing water meter box and go to the expense of all the materials and time necessary to add a device that may or may not pay for its self. The other question is if the device fails, will it fail open or closed? If you can easily install this and possibly save 25% on your water bill I would say it is worth the risk. Assess your situation, and think, can I, and all the "what ifs" now and in the future.
Great directions are inside the box for installing this on your waterline. Unfortunately we have had a lot of rain and it is so muddy inside the water box that I have to wait to install when it is a little dried out. However from all of the reviews that I have read it seems like a great device and the company has been in business many years and is well thought of. I am sure this will be great but will not be able to review it properly until I can see several water bills and what is going on.
The easy Flo is a cost effective saver to say the least.. This item is simply installed right after the water meter of the point where your water line comes into the house... When one stops to think of water moving through one main pipe line, and off of that are hook ups to place all along the pipe line it's easy to imagine how all the turn ons and turn offs can allow for water to have air in it... So if it takes say 5 min to fill a tub, with this Flo devise eliminating air it may fill in 4 min. In the long run it takes less time to fill ad your eliminating air. I like the idea and am sure I'll like the savings over time.
Super easy install. A teenager can do it. I tried to install it near my water meter but I was not able to gain access to where I was supposed to put it. (According to a you-tube video) Instead I installed it into the 1 inch copper pipe coming up from the ground before it enters my house near the shut-off valve. After turning the water back on I first went upstairs to the farthest bathroom from where I installed it. To my surprise there was not any reduction in water pressure. Not one bit. I also checked all the bathrooms (3-1/2 bath, 2500 sq. ft. house) and the kitchen and again, no reduction in water pressure. (I also own an installed in-line water softener) I was very surprised. Now all I have to do is wait to see if it saves water. Only time will tell.
I was not sure what a stream water saver would do. It seems to have two purposes: 1. to exert a back pressure to compress out turbulence 2. to regulate the flow rate to reduce. The tools needed are a water meter key, two crescent wrenches, and a flat blade screwdriver. It is not supposed to affect water pressure. Since the ground is frozen where I live, I am waiting for the thaw and then will track my water use for the year and compare it to last year's use.
EZ-Flow Stream is an intriguing idea. The box is huge in comparison to the product. There is an upside to that, there is a very nice stiff, no creases, step by step instruction in the box that will make it easy for me to install once the snow gets off the ground, rather than a thin small creased thin folded paper flapping around. The device genuinely looks to be very easy to install. You need two crescent wrenches and a mid size flat blade screwdriver. I think you need a wad of paper towels and a cleaner. Then first dig the dirt away from the nut and put the plastic bag under to keep dirt away from getting inside the pipe. There is an o-ring you need to not lose and put it back in clean to finish the install. The product looks like it is plastic with a strong spring inside it and it fits entirely inside of the pipe. Fits in a 3/4” pipe and has a 1” adapter. I look forward to using it and saving some money. I think I will need 6 months to be able to compare my usage history because my use varies.
