FAQs

How do I know if my showerhead is a low-flow unit?

Look to see if the flow rate is marked on the unit. Anything under 2.0 gallons per minute is low-flow. Alternatively, we can provide you with a kit that allows you to measure the flow rate of your shower.

Do low-flow showerheads put out enough water to shower?

Absolutely. Most customers don’t notice any lack of performance with the showerheads that we provide. These units have been specifically engineered to give the maximum efficiency while still providing excellent service.

Do they really save water?

Yes. The average family will save 2,900 gallons per year. It’s like getting a free month of indoor water consumption just for making the switch.

Facts
