    Default High Flow Shower Head

    Does anyone know of a place where I can get a shower head that is not limited to 2.5 gpm? In the US, the most a showerhead can put out is 2.5 gallons per minute (about 9 Litres). The flow restrictors are getting harder and harder to find. Are there any foreign companies which produce heads that can be adapted to US plumbing?
    I am physcologically dependant on a TV show which features a fictional starship that studies gaseous anomalies around Uranus, while watching out for Klingons.

    How does 10GPM sound?

    12.5 GPM?

    My luck, the SOB'll have a left-hand thread though...

    There was a Seinfeld episode about this - Kramer didn't like his low-pressure shower so he went and bought a showerhead that was made to wash horses.

    Not that I'm suggesting that you break the law or anything, but theoretically, you could pull out the plastic spacer in your current shower head and drill out the restricter... Simple, cheap.

    Yeah, if there's any other show than Star Trek that I am a bit obsessive about, its Seinfeld.

    Nope, I could add a few more into that. The Simpsons is great
    in small doses, mostly 60s TV shows (incl. The original ST)
    from comedy as weird & wonderful as The Addams Family to Get
    Smart even Hogans Heros. Even love 60s/70s British Comedy.

    But I guess that's too much information! ;-) (Which I've only
    just scratched!)
