Want to do one of the easiest bathroom remodels around? Install a water conserving plumbing fixture in your home. Install a low flow showerhead. A recent federal mandate requires all showerheads to flow at a rate of no more than 2.5 gallons per minute. So if you haven't installed a new showerhead in your home in the last five years or so, maybe it's time to get that new low flow showerhead. If you want to go even further with your water conserving plumbing fixture, go super low flow with a fixture which puts out just 2 gallons per minute. You can even get a model which has an on/off button for when you're just lathering on the soap in the tub.
