A flow rate is the measurement of water per minute that flows out of your showerhead. They are usually measured in gallons per minutes or GPM. A standard showerhead has a flow rate of 2.5 GPM. This showerhead has a maximum flow rate of 1.5 GPM for increased efficiency.
Saving Water Saves Energy
Saving water also saves energy by reducing the amount of energy used to heat water. The savings differ whether you have an electric or natural gas hot-water heater. This showerhead is 40% more efficient than a standard 2.5-GPM showerhead.
How it works
1. Turn on shower.
Cold water exits. You can continue with your typical routine—the things you do while waiting for the shower to become warm.
2. ShowerStart® kicks in.
When water reaches 95°F, ShowerStart automatically lowers the flow to a trickle—saving hot water until you are ready to get in.
3. Ready when you are.
You will know when the shower is warm, so you can pull the resume fill flow and begin showering.
More hot water for other uses.
About a minute’s worth of hot water is accidentally wasted every time you start the shower. When you save it, you will have more hot water when you need it most.
Freedom while waiting.
Mornings are better when you don’t have to choose between wasting time or wasting hot water. Now you can brush your teeth, shave or pick out the perfect outfit … and your shower will just wait for you.
Alerts you when the shower is ready.
The first time you can hear your shower slow to a trickle you'll feel the freedom of knowing it’s warm and waiting.
Because this shower head delivers a clean, powerful and comfortable spray regardless of your homes' water pressure, it’s sure to have you singing in the rain.
No more empty showers running endlessly.
Are you frustrated with family members letting the shower run on and on while doing something else? Stop it when it’s hot and save gallons of water every time they shower.
