    "Stop reading reviews and buy this. I switched from the average 10 dollar 1.5 GPM shower head to this one and the pressure is 10 times better! Wish I had bought this years ago."

  • "We have installed ... your 1.5 gpm shower heads to retrofit most of the shower stalls of our residential buildings. Our staff had tested the performance of different heads in the market and chose yours for its full flow feeling and usability such as washing the shampoo off.

  • Can you save water and still get a great shower? YES!
    NEW! 1.75 gpm, 1.5 gpm and 1.25 gpm shower heads!

    According to the Environmental Protection Agency, showering is one of the top uses of residential water in the United States, representing approximately 17 percent of indoor water use - more than 1.2 trillion gallons of water each year.

    Pick your level of savings: 30%, 40% or 50%.

    The difference between the showerheads at the bottom of this page and the one(s) you have in your home is the FLOW RATE. The best way to compare shower heads is by reading the flow rate, in gallons per minute (gpm), which is usually stamped on the showerhead. Most new showerheads flow at 2.5 gpm. Pre-1994 showerheads could range from 3-7 gpm.

    When you switch out your old showerhead, your savings is simply the difference in the flow rates. Compared to 2.5 gpm, by selecting a new low-flow 1.75 gpm showerhead you will save 30%. Choose 1.5 gpm to save 40%, and 1.25 gpm to save 50%.

    No one will argue against the benefit of saving money on water and the energy to heat the water. The next question is: will I get a great shower?

    The answer is: try it and you will like it, guaranteed.

    What can you save? This chart compares a 2.5 gpm showerhead against a new 1.75 gpm "low flow" showerhead. Savings will depend on your water/sewer cost and your energy cost to heat the water.

    For this example, only water/sewer cost is considered. Typically, energy cost is about 3 times more costly than water/sewer.

    I replaced my low flow showerhead that was rated at 2.5 gpm with the High Sierra 1.5 gpm showerhead and am really enjoying it. Saving a gallon per minute in the shower. ... Water stream is strong and droplets are large. A very well-machined showerhead that works well and saves water.

Niagara N2915CH 1.5 GPM Chrome Shower Head

So far this showerhead has far exceeded my expectations. It is a 1.5gpm and I used it to replace a 2.5gpm showerhead. The last 1.5gpm I tried was quickly removed after complaints from my wife and daughter about lack of pressure etc. So far they actually like this showerhead better than the 2.5gpm I replaced, because it not only has stronger pressure but it actually feels like more water. This is a well engineered product and I'm glad I bought it.
