Shower heads sold in California will be limited to 2 gallons per minute beginning in July 2016, and 1.8 gallons per minute by 2018.

New regulations approved by the California Energy Commission mean shower heads sold in California will be limited to spraying 2 gallons per minute beginning in July 2016.

By 2018, they’ll be limited to just 1.8 gallons per minute — the toughest standard in the nation.

Existing regulations limit California shower heads to 2.5 gallons per minute.
