One cool product is by Evolve shower heads. These showerheads come in both 2.5 and 1.5 gallons per minute. That’s not unusual. What is unusual is the adapter that comes with the showerhead. The adapter, which you can buy separately for you own showerhead, senses the temperature of the water. When the water hits 95-degrees, the showerhead slows to a trickle until you manually open the flow on the adapter. Pretty cool. I can’t tell you how many times someone in my house will turn on the hot water in the shower and leave to do something else. When they return 5 minutes later the shower is now a steam sauna from the hot water that has been flowing. Now when they return, they will find a slow trickle of water from the showerhead signaling the temperature has reached 95-degrees.

At press time the chrome model sells for about $40.00, and my local utility is giving a $20 dollar rebate on the shower head. By the way, the company website says that it will save 2,700 gallons of water per year based on shaving 1 minute off of each shower.
