Roto-Rooter Investigates the Low-Flow Showerhead

Roto-Rooter Investigates the Low-Flow Showerhead

When you think of low-flow showerheads, what sort of images come to mind? Do you envision a nice, long shower or does your mind instantly become clouded with visions of cold, trickling water? Unfortunately, many people envision the latter. Contrary to popular opinion, low-flow showerheads don’t create a lackluster showering experience – they create the same experience of a regular showerhead. The only difference between a low-flow showerhead and a regular showerhead is the amount of water that each one uses. While regular showerheads use the legal limit of 2.5 gallons of water per minute, low-flow showerheads reduce that amount to anywhere between 1.5 and .5 gallons per minute. So why do water-saving showerheads have such a bad reputation? Roto-Rooter did a bit of investigation into the subject.

The Name “Low-Flow” Is Misleading

For many people, the descriptive term “low-flow” is what conjures images of a sub-par showerhead. For whatever reasons, the connotations of this term have contributed to the negative reputation surrounding low-flow showerheads. Yet unlike their name, low-flow showerheads provided full water coverage and similar spray strength when compared to regular showerheads. Many people mistake the “low-flow” term to represent a lack of water pressure when showering; however, this term refers to the amount of water per minute that these showerheads use. Low-flow showerheads are comparable to regular showerheads with one exception: less water usage. Contact your local Roto-Rooter to learn more about how these showerheads can help you conserve water every day.

Many People Believe They Are Expensive

Again, this is a myth worth dispelling. The low-flow showerhead is quite affordable, and many models can be purchased for under $20. Low-flow showerheads are one of the most inexpensive ways to reduce your carbon footprint on a daily basis. People have begun to associate energy-reducing and water conservation tools with a high price tag; this is simply not true with low-flow showerheads. Don’t let the idea of a high price tag scare you away from saving money on your water bill; call Roto-Rooter to learn more about these great showerheads.

Do These Showerheads Really Conserve Resources?

The answer to this question is yes. Low-flow showerheads statistically cut the amount of water used during showering in half; that’s a 50 percent savings every single day! Installing low-flow showerheads throughout your household also considerably lowers monthly water bills. Don’t let the negative press surrounding low-flow showerheads deter you from conserving valuable resources. Try one out for yourself and see the difference firsthand!
