Pressure regulated high-efficiency or high-performance shower heads save about 40% of the water required by conventional showers, because they reduce the water flow from 2.5 Gallons Per Minute (GPM) to about 1.6 GPM. They now deliver the comfort that 'feels' like a traditional shower head without wasting the water. For years they were called 'low-flow' shower heads, and the technology delivered a weak stream. However, now they are state-of-the-art and one of the most cost-effective ways to save money and the planet, because they also save energy when you use less fuel to heat the water for each shower.
Each top level shower head now only costs between $40 and $60. New models provide ample pressure, and for a family of four, the savings can add up to hundreds of dollars per year and thousands of gallons of water. These shower heads will save more money than $4,000 of solar panels before federal and state incentives! Look for Eco-Friendly shower heads that have a 1.6 GPM flow rate and a 'Full Spray Pattern'.
The ROI Calculation is based on three $50 low-flow showers and the Teflon tape and the time it takes to install them.
High efficiency shower heads now come in a range of different types and features, so choose the one that is right for you.
