Save water, save money. One way to defeat poor water pressure is with a shower head that needs less. The average shower head uses 2.5 gallons per minute (gpm), and some older units use more. Shower heads with the EPA WaterSense certification use 2 gpm or less. The EPA says a WaterSense shower head could save the average household 2,900 gallons of water each year, as well as energy savings. Libsack says he’s skeptical of the EPA’s water conservation claims. “It’s the same thing with the [low-flow] sink faucets. If it takes you longer to get the soap off your hands, you still end up using the same amount of water,” he says. “That’s what’s happening with the misting shower heads that promise low water usage: you just spend longer in the shower to get rinsed off.”
I love my time in the shower, the hot water on my head and back relieves many aches and pains. However, my shower used to give me a beautiful even stream of water, but lately I have been getting a few drips, dribbles and random squirts which is just not enjoyable. You don’t need to buy a new shower head it just needs a good clean!
