Low-Flow Showerheads: A Product Guide

With showers accounting for nearly 30% of a household’s total water consumption, upgrading your showerheads to low-flow models will reward you with instant water and energy savings. Low-flow models are manufactured to provide you with a satisfying shower while reducing your water consumption at the same time!

When deciding what low-flow showerhead model to purchase, several factors must be considered to fit your individual needs. Fixed showerheads are mounted in place; hand-held showerheads can be left in their holder or removed to focus the spray. Wide, round showerheads provide a soft, soothing flow while other showerheads have an adjustable jet, massage, or mist settings.

Use our low-flow showerhead product guide to discover which features are important to you before you make your purchase.
