Efficient Showerheads

Upgrading your standard showerhead to an efficient showerhead is one of the most inexpensive and effective ways to reduce hot water use. Using hot water efficiently means lower energy and water bills. Seattle City Light is offering an instant discount up to $10 at participating retailers.


  • Use less water. Standard showerheads use 2.5 gallons per minute (gpm), while WaterSense rated showerheads use between 1.5 and 2 gpm.
  • Savings on your bill. The average household can save $100 per year with a 1.5 gpm showerhead, or $50 per year with a 2.0 gpm showerhead.
  • A wise investment. The amount you’ll be saving on electricity and water, combined with the instant discount, will likely pay for your new showerhead in just six months.
  • Simple to install. Most residents can easily install their showerhead on their own following a set of simple instructions.
