As they name implies, a low flow shower head is one where the amount of water flowing through it is less than for a regular shower head.
Once upon a time, maybe 15 years ago, they were terrible. In spite of the fact our county governments would suggest we install them during every drought season, they had slightly more water pressure than a leak in the roof, so nobody did.
That however has changed.
Some are now so strong that if you were not told it’s a low flow shower head, you might not know. They’re now that good.
So now we have no excuse, and by the way, we ARE heading into the worse drought season since the 1970s, so once again we will all be strongly advised to install one.
I suggest going one further and getting one that has a shutoff built into the shower head. Then you can really be a good water conserving citizen and take what are called Navy showers (get wet, soap up, rinse off).
A good low flow shower head can now be bought for less than $20 and installed yourself.
There no longer are any.
Since we are heading into the worst drought season in 35+ years, you’re probably going to install one anyway. You may as well do it now.
