Learn about Low-Flow Showerhead

Low-Flow Showerhead

Low-flow showerheads are designed to minimize the flow of water. Traditionally, showerheads used 5 to 8 gallons per minute (gpm). The standard for low flow showerheads is 2.5 gpm at 80 pounds per square inch (psi). Many new and exciting showerheads are engineered to use less than 2.5 gpm while providing a similar or better shower experience. This is done by reducing the water flow while maintaining or increasing water pressure (psi).

Look for Watersense certified showerheads; these have a maximum flow rate of 2.0 gpm (7.6 liters/minute). The U.S. EPA Watersense label ensures that products have completed a third-party certification process, which includes independent lab testing to ensure adherence to EPA criteria.

Low-flow showerheads can reduce a households water consumption by up to 20% compared to a standard model. Using less hot water also saves the energy used to heat the water!

The average family uses up to 150 liters of water per day just for showering!
