Question: How is the 1.5 gpm "Jet-Stream" Showerhead the "most cost effective" low flow shower head?
The term "most cost effective low flow shower head" requires the use of Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) which employs the use the purchase price, the amount of water, sewage and heated water saving, the acceptance of the user and the length of the warranty when compared to the same measures of our low flow shower head competitors. In general, if it saves more, has greater acceptance and lasts longer, it is worth more.
What is "Life Cycle Analysis" (LCA) and how do I use it?
Question: What if I have recently replaced older shower heads with low flow (2.5 gpm) shower heads? First, ask yourself the following questions:
“Why did I go to the expenses of purchase and labor to replace the shower heads in the first place?
If the reason to replacement the original shower heads was based upon increased Net Profits through the reduction of the three shower related utilities of water, sewage and heated water. The same reasoning applies to replacing the recently replaced low flow (2.5 gpm) shower with the 1.5 gpm “Jet-Stream” Showerhead, an additional minimum savings of 40% reduction is shower related utility usage (2.5 gpm / 1.5 gpm = 33% minimum greater savings. Most of the shower heads that we sell are to replace low flow showers that did not deliver the savings and performance! The average saving is 45% when replacing low flow showers with the 1.5 gpm Jet-Stream Showerhead. There is “no restrictor” in the 1.5 gpm “Jet-Stream” Showerheads. Refer to FEMP - Showerheads

The 1.5 gpm "Jet-Stream" Showerhead® is self-cleaning (patented feature), meaning that it does not corrode from, or accumulate calcium or lime deposits that result in, restricted and/or "stray" waterflow. Many other shower heads require cleaning or replacement as often as every six months depending upon the quantity and presence of calcium, lime and other mineral deposits in the local water.
Don't be confused by low flow shower heads with restrictors, commonly called "water-savers." The 1.5 gpm "Jet-Stream" Showerhead® is a precision instrument and was designed to be water and energy efficient and is the only shower head to provide a constant 1.5 gpm volume of water at all residential pressures from 15 to 120 PSI. Furthermore, it is designed to be self-cleansing and is made from solid chrome plated brass. There is a big difference in the savings between 2.5 gpm at 80 PSI and 1.5 gpm and at all pressures.
K.H. "Skip" Haynes, the inventor of the first 3.0 gpm, the first 2.0 gpm and the first 1.5 gpm low flow shower headin 1978:
In 1975, someone asked the inventor, K. H. "Skip" Haynes, how he invented the shower head and here was his reply: "We were in the third straight year of a severe drought in the Western United States and I was trying to find ways to reduce water consumption in my newly constructed home in Tempe, Arizona.
At first, I purchased a few items to conserve water and read everything that I could find about residential water usage. I purchased a few shower heads and decided to measure the volume output in gallons per minute (gpm). Of the initial units that I purchased, the average was 10 gpm at 60 PSI. Most residential pressure is 40 to 60 PSI. I built a test unit to provide a measure of controlled pressure from 10 to 120 PSI and then purchased 70 water-saving shower heads from hardware stores and plumbing supply houses. Of the 70 units, 15 turned out to be fairly good water savers that ranged from 3.0 to 9.5 gpm, however, most had "restrictors" inserted which could easily be removed and thrown away. The rest gave really lousy showers, more like a waterfall than a brisk shower. Of the 15 good units, only three or four gave really good high pressure showers and also saved 30% to 60% of the water used in showers.
In testing so many units, it occurred to me that I might try to make a better unit than any of those I had tested. Seven months later, I had made a 3.0 gpm low flow shower head that gave a high quality (brisk, stimulating high pressure) while controlling the water flow through the shower. It was also designed it to be self-cleaning and it was the first low flow shower head to carry a 10-year warranty and was sold for commercial and industrial use under a 30-day money-back guaranty." The 2.0 gpm low flow shower head was first invented in 1975 and later received a first patent in 1978, an improvement in design that provided a high quality shower at 1.5 gpm. (View patent info at USPTO)
In 1978, K.H. "Skip" Haynes invented the first 1.5 gpm low flow shower head and received another patent in 1980. The 1.5 gpm "Jet-Stream" Showerhead® was not been sold to the public until January 1999, under exclusive license to Jet Stream Mfg, LLC This low flow shower head gives great high pressure, brisk, stimulating showers at 1.5 gpm even at low and high water pressure. No low flow shower head anywhere compares to the 1.5 gpm "Jet-Stream" Showerhead®. It saves 40% to 70% more and lasts longer, the most durable and sustainable low flow shower head.
