I just put one in yesterday. It is very basic and was under $5. It is rated at 2.5 gallons per minuet and has a quick shut off switch. I really don't think it is bad at all, but some of the other people in the house are complaining about it. I was wondering if there any flow flow shower heads you guys have used or can recommend.
2008 EPA adjusted:
Distance traveled by bicycle in 2007= 1,830ish miles
Average commute speed=25mph (yes, that's in a car)
Are they complaining about volume? Or pattern? I'm willing to bet on the pattern as that head looks rather focused I have a low flow head that has a more dispersed pattern which I really don't mind Then again, I take cool showers because I'm a tightwad and quick showers because I like to conserve water
Time is the best teacher. Unfortunately it kills all its students.
our low flow head like that got cloged with lime and stoped working a few years back, so we ended up getting a slightly larger, but still 2.5-3 gallon per minut head, and kept the shut off valve, the valve is nice as it alows you to turn off the water without loosing your temp setting.
You should check the actual flow rate of the shower head at the setting that you use it at by catching the water coming out of it into a bucket. Back home we have such low water pressue we can't get more than a gallon of water a minute of of an open faucet much less from a shower head. A friends house with well water has the pump pressure set to 80psi and the shower head HISSES water out so fast you can't even see it and at full flow it hurts.
