Several months ago we replaced the shower head on one of our showers. I purchased a Delta Water Saving Shower Head at Home Depot. I wasn't sure if we would like the low flow shower head but I thought we should give it a try. It turns out we really couldn't tell the difference and we had gone from using 2.5 GPM (gallons per minute) to only using 1.5 GPM. When I received our water bill the next month, I noticed it was $10 lower than usual and the only change we had made was the shower head. So yesterday I went back to Home Depot and bought another Delta Water Saving Shower Head and also bought faucet aerators for all the bathroom sinks & kitchen sink. I can't wait to get our water bill next month! That's not a statement you hear everyday.
