Many low-flow showerheads do not provide a very powerful spray even though they provide the maximum 2.5 gallon-per-minute (gpm) of water. Users sometimes use more water with low flow shower heads because they don't feel like they are getting enough of a spray

A showerhead designed to save consumers money through water conservation, while maintaining a powerful water flow, is the creation of an Ohio innovator. The self-closing water and energy saving showerhead allows the user to stop and start the flow of water by simply pulling a chain.
Fred Rahaming, owner of Newproduct Info, LLC has created a water conservation showerhead he calls the "It Makes Sense Shower Head" (Patent Pending). The novel showerhead head has a self-closing pull chain allowing the user to control the flow of water easily and quickly.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) states that residential showering represents 17% of indoor water use - over 1.2 trillion gallons of water. States such as California, which are in drought status, are asking residents to take water conservation measures and reduce water usage by as much as 19%.
According to Rahaming, "The standard low flow showerhead uses 25 gallons of water for the average 10 minute shower. Using the 'It Makes Sense Shower Head' can reduce that water usage to 3 gallons - a water and energy savings of 88%." This can translate into significant dollar savings for most consumers.
Rahaming calls his modified showerhead a "gadget", but a gadget with serious energy and water savings. It meets government requirements and has received the approval of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). He got the idea for the showerhead modification while helping a property manager determine how to conserve water in order to lower his cost.
He is also aware of the drought affecting many parts of the southeast and western parts of the United States and believes this showerhead can save the consumer money by significantly reducing their energy and water bills.
Rahaming thinks that many consumers have been disappointed with the performance of standard low-flow showerheads. He says that may be why many consumers in drought states have not switched over to low flow showerheads even though they might save money by using them.
"Many low-flow showerheads do not provide a very powerful spray even though they provide the maximum 2.5 gallon-per-minute (gpm) of water. Users sometimes use more water with low flow shower heads because they don't feel like they are getting enough of a spray," says Rahaming.
"The 'It Makes Sense Shower Head' provides a powerful full-body spray that can adjust from 0.5 gallon per minute to the full 2.5 gpm just by pulling the chain. Even better, the temperature remains constant because the water is never totally shut off; it just slows to a trickle. As a result, you don't have to worry about running out of hot water or about being scalded," states Rahaming.
Current customers appreciate the water conservation as much as the forceful spray of the shower.
"Normal water pressure is 80 pounds per square inch (psi) but even at 60 psi, the 'It Makes Sense Shower Head' works very efficiently to deliver a great shower," says Rahaming.
Another unique feature of "The Just Makes Sense Shower Head" is that it is easy to return to normal shower mode with just a flip of the chain. However, if the household has teenagers who like long showers with lots of water, Rahaming offers an option that does not allow disabling of the flow control.
The water saving showerhead, currently priced at $29.95, with free shipping anywhere in the U.S., also comes with a 30-day guarantee. A discount is available for bulk orders. Visit http://www.itjustmakessense.net for additional information including a video demonstration of the showerhead.
