We recently got a new shower head/handheld thingee. Stirling was adamant, no "low flow", "water saver", or similar. Got it home and installed and there was "low flow". He fixed it.

In the USA, low flow is required by law.

It might be the law here too. But, ya know, it's kinda nice to get wet all at once and with enough water to stay warm. I would understand it if I lived somewhere with water shortages, but we have lots of water in Quebec and electricity to heat the water is generated by hydro dams.

We have a multiflow showerhead. You can twist it, and get different flow patterns, some that almost hurt, they're so strong. I think we got it at Costco.

This morning I could actually take advantage of the center harder flow and the outer finer spray. And it was glorious
