There’s a new water saving showerhead engineered by Nebia in San Francisco with flows of 0.75 gallons per minute! How awesome is that!?
For perspective: the average flow rate for showers is 2.1 gallons per minute, compared to the Nebia showerhead's 0.75 gallons per minute.
What it will cost you: $399 USD, but you will have to wait until May 2016 to receive it.
