But How Will My Shower Spray Feel???

Will California’s new standards lead to bad showers? Fear not, there are lots of good low-flow showerheads out there.

Your shower flow is going down. Starting July 2016, all showerheads sold in Calfornia must drop to 2 gallons per minute, from the current allowable flow rate of 2.5 gallons per minute. And on these matters, where California goes, the rest of the nation soon follows.

We suspect consumers won’t even notice the difference. There are many great low-flow showerheads. Here are a few that meet the new standard from our online store.
