Is Low-Flow Really the Way to Go?

Is Low-Flow Really the Way to Go?

Many homeowners are unsure of whether it is really worth it to make the investment in low-flow solutions. Rest assured that this is a valuable and worthwhile investment for most people. While most homeowners have heard of the valuable benefits associated with low-flow toilets, many aren’t aware of the benefits associated with low-flow showerheads.

Did you know that replacing your showerhead can save as much as 7.5 gallons of water per minute? Low-flow showerheads can help to save a significant amount of water in your bathroom without sacrificing your comfort or personal preferences. By reducing the number of gallons of water per minute that you are using you can literally save water every minute, so the savings can add up fast.

With low-flow solutions, you can save money, go green, and even cut back on your water and heating needs. If you decide to make the plunge into low-flow showerheads, make sure to keep your showers as short as possible and run the water only when you need to rinse off in order to reduce water usage as much as possible. In fact, reducing the length of your showers by only one minute could save nearly 2,000 gallons of water every year.

Can They Provide the Same Results?

Low-flow appliances have gotten a bad rap in the past because they could not provide the water pressure that homeowners had come to expect and enjoy. However, newer models have improved significantly over the years and offer superior performance.

With various styles and options to choose from, you should be able to easily find the right showerhead for your particular needs and personal preferences. Your trusted local plumber can advise you on which low-flow showerheads would be right for your home.

Maintaining Your New Showerhead

These effective showerheads are easy to install, use, and maintain and can provide a relaxing experience each and every time you shower. You may also want to look for certain helpful features, such as self-cleaning nozzles, anti-corrosion fixtures, and built-in self-pressurizing technology. This will help to keep your future maintenance needs to a minimum.

Make sure to keep your new showerhead clean and well maintained to ensure that it can perform optimally and meet your needs. White vinegar can do wonders for your shower. Simply remove your showerhead and flush it with clean water. For bad mineral deposits, you may want to soak the showerhead in vinegar overnight and reassemble the clean showerhead in the morning.
