Water Saving Shower Heads
Most of these models feature a fingertip control that allows users to choose from five or more spray settings. All of the water saving shower heads carrying the EPA’s WaterSense label will use less than 2.0 gpm. This results in a considerable savings on utility bills. A top-of-the-line model will pay for itself in less than one year.

A perfect example is the ECO-563 Chrome. This unit has five spray settings, a water control mount on the handle, 5-ft. hose for easy use in larger bathroom stalls, and a 1.6 gpm maximum flow. The ECO-563 saves on average one gallon of water per minute. Many retailers offer this product for under $50.00.
