Potential Water Savings from High Pressure Showerheads

 

 

 

 

 

WaterSense worked in collaboration with the

American Society of Mechanical Engineers/Canadian
Standards Association Joint Harmonization Task
Force on water-efficient showerheads to develop the
criteria. This task force represented a cross-section of
stakeholders including showerhead manufacturers,
water and energy utilities, testing laboratories, consultants
and other water-efficiency and conservation
specialists.

Are you aware that the standard shower heads use 2.5 gallons of water per minute (gpm)? Water–saving showerheads that earn the WaterSense label must demonstrate that they use no more than 2.0 gpm. The WaterSense label also ensures that these products provide a satisfactory shower that is equal to or better than conventional showerheads on the market. EPA worked with a variety of stakeholders—including consumers who tested various shower heads—to develop criteria for water coverage and spray intensity. All products bearing the WaterSense label—including water–efficient showerheads—must be independently certified to ensure they meet all water efficiency and performance criteria.
