How to know when it’s time for a new showerhead

Look for a low-flow model for your new showerhead

Not matter what kind of new showerhead you decide to install, make sure that it is a low-flow model. Today’s low-flow showerheads perform just as well as older models, and they use a fraction of the amount of water. At most, look for a showerhead with a flow rate of 2.5 gallons per minute, and consider even more efficient models with flow rates of 1.5 gallons per minute or less.

If you have any questions about what to look for in a new showerhead, or if you’d like a plumbing system serviced or installed in your home, contact Cabrillo, your Bay Area plumbing, heating and air conditioning contractor.
