Installing water-saving showerheads in your bathroom is great for water conservation. They let out just the right amount of water for rising.
In this post, one of the most trusted local home improvement and deck contractors, Gaspard Construction shares the characteristics of a water-saving showerhead.
The federal regulations require that a low-flow shower doesn’t use more than 2.5 gallons per minute (GPM). Most water-saving showerheads have 1.5 to 2 GMP, which can decrease your water consumption for up to 40%.
A good low-flow showerhead works well on both high and low water pressures and has multiple spray settings like narrow to wide, spray only, pulse, etc. Another water-conserving feature is its shut-off at the head, which cuts off the water while soaping your kids or pets.
Gaspard Construction won’t only help you with your bathroom remodeling project, our team will help you select the best water-saving options for your shower.
Types of Low-Flow Showerheads
The two main types of low-flow showerheads are the regular, which is stationary and handheld, which is attached to a flexible hose.
Most handheld models can be placed onto a wall-mounted hanger, swivel, or bar. They are more energy-efficient than stationary heads as they allow water to travel in a shorter distance between the head and your body. This means that the water cools less in the air so you can lower the water temperature.
Apart from the mentioned options, you can also purchase attachments for your shower to control its water flow like flow-control inserts and shower shut-off control valves, which gives your showerhead an on and off switch.
