    Save your time and pass on the Centerpoint low flow shower head if you like to get wet. I got one a few months back and it seemed OK at first, then I realized I was spending almost twice as much time in the shower – and most of it just trying to get my hair wet enough to shower. It says it's 1.6 gpm, but I doubt it's even that. Put the old shower head back on and now we're in and out. (it's flow rating is also in the water saver range, it actually works though).
