Best low-flow shower head?
I'd like to know what low flow shower heads folks are happy with. Let's define low flow as 1.5 gallons per minute, bonus if it's 1.25 and honestly does a decent job.
I previously obtained a Niagara Conservation 1.25gpm unit free from my utility company. I used it for a while but found the performance so unsatisfactory I was taking much longer showers than neccessary, particularly in the winter. Everyone in the house agreed when I yanked it in favour of the old supersoaker type.
Looking at the options available in the product guide, the Bricor venturi-assist aerator models look particularly promising. One even has a video of just a shower head running. It looks decent.
I have a weakness for long showers and tend to be a wuss when it comes to showering comfort. I put up with a lot of austerity on other fronts to save energy, but I just want the shower to feel good. I can't be alone in this.
I already have 3 litre (0.8 gal) toilets, front loader washer and rain barrels only for the garden and still get $70 - $90 water bills so something must be done. I want to go for the best here and not go back. So what is it?
