 - Click to enlargeCan you save water and still get a great shower? YES!
NEW! 1.75 gpm, 1.5 gpm and 1.25 gpm shower heads!

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, showering is one of the top uses of residential water in the United States, representing approximately 17 percent of indoor water use - more than 1.2 trillion gallons of water each year.

Pick your level of savings: 30%, 40% or 50%.

The difference between the showerheads at the bottom of this page and the one(s) you have in your home is the FLOW RATE. The best way to compare shower heads is by reading the flow rate, in gallons per minute (gpm), which is usually stamped on the showerhead. Most new showerheads flow at 2.5 gpm. Pre-1994 showerheads could range from 3-7 gpm.

When you switch out your old showerhead, your savings is simply the difference in the flow rates. Compared to 2.5 gpm, by selecting a new low-flow 1.75 gpm showerhead you will save 30%. Choose 1.5 gpm to save 40%, and 1.25 gpm to save 50%.

No one will argue against the benefit of saving money on water and the energy to heat the water. The next question is: will I get a great shower?

The answer is: try it and you will like it, guaranteed.

What can you save? This chart compares a 2.5 gpm showerhead against a new 1.75 gpm "low flow" showerhead. Savings will depend on your water/sewer cost and your energy cost to heat the water.

For this example, only water/sewer cost is considered. Typically, energy cost is about 3 times more costly than water/sewer.
