Up until as recently as the mid 1990s, low-flow showerheads meant a trickle of a shower with little water pressure. Luckily for us, the days of sacrificing shower quality for the good of the planet are past. We can now save water and enjoy showering all at the same time. The low-flow showerheads in this section have been designed to go the extra mile. They are in this category because they are innovative and/or have achieved a new level of water conservation. The cost of these showerheads is a little higher, but so is the quality of the showering experience.
Here you will find both aerated and laminar showerheads as well as wall mounted and hand-held models. Aerated showerheads generally achieve increased water pressure and velocity by mixing air with the water. One drawback to aeration is that some heat will be lost during the process so the water temperature required will be higher for an aerated showerhead. Non-aerated, or laminar, showerheads generally have a higher water pressure and velocity through showerhead design.
Choose the best shower head for water conservation to save you money and help sustain the environment. We recommend the best low flow showerhead that offers a good flow without wasting excessive water.
