you could be using an illegal showerhead

Wall Street Journal --

What has a 24 inch surface

358 no clog nozzles

Triple massaged option

Sells for as much as $5,000

Feels really great in the morning

And the Department of Energy wants to make these illegal?

You guessed it.

The multiple showerhead.

In fact, there are so evil that the Department of Energy's general counsel, Scott Blake Harris, fine four showerhead makers $165,104 in civil penalties for not complying with the 2.5 gallon maximum per minute regulations.

The new regulations affect most multiple head showers to include handheld sprayers and even a type of showerheads used in the school's locker room.

while I will agree that the "non-water saving" showerheads, do waste water, it is almost impossible to get all the shampoo out of your hair with those dribbles style shower heads.

When you think about it, a shower in general waste water unless you can find some way of recirculating the water in the shower which I think would have its advantages and disadvantages.

Oh yes, and regarding the showerhead as described above... I would love to be in a position where I could afford a showerhead like that...

But I'll just have to settle for my $15 Wal-Mart special.
