Go With The Flow: Sleek Low-Flow Showerheads

Go With The Flow: Sleek Low-Flow Showerheads

In early March, Re-Nest reported on a piece in The New York Times that detailed the latest low-flow, high-pressure showerheads, and offered a roundup of water-conserving bath fixtures from flushers to sink faucets soon after. But because this is a subject that continually floods our Inbox—particularly in the wake of KBIS—we thought we'd toss out a few more options from top manufacturers. The low-flow showerheads below are high in quality and, of course, low in water waste. Stream on!

Shown above the jump, from left to right:

1. The Cylindrico 5 from Jaclo, an EPA WaterSense partner, features a low-flow regulator and five spray patterns ranging from full rain to nebulizing mist to massage. Available finishes include all sorts of chrome, brass, nickel and copper.
2. The 6" Danze 305 Low-Flow Showerhead features 84 jets and a 1.5gpm (gallons per minute) flow for a water-usage-per-minute savings of 20 percent.
3. The skinny Green 3-Jet Handshower from Hansgrohe has a four-inch spray face and the brand's patented EcoAIR technology, which results in a 1.75gpm flow and water savings of 30 percent.
4. The Times featured Kohler's Purist line, and we find the Forte an equally inspiring model, albeit a tad more traditional in design. This, like its cousin, has a gpm rate of 1.75 and three distinct spray functions.
5. The IntelliShower Series from Oxygenics, in both fixed and hand-held models, feature dual sprays (a single spray and a three-in-one Tri-Core spray) and up to 70 percent water savings.
6. The Moenflo XL, with a five-inch spray face and a one-function full-spray setting, offers a rate of 1.75 gpm.
7. The chrome Adjustable Flow Rate H2OKinetics Showerhead from Delta operates at a gpm rate ranging from 1.85 to 2.5. The dense spray pattern creates the sensation of a full-flow shower.
