Comment:
Good comfort and warmth at the default setting (most water efficient). Very little water seems to go down the drain. However, my wife does not like the large head style. We have two showers so I'm using this shower but she is not.

Low flow with excellent feel

Easy to Install/Use
Good Pressure

Water Efficient
Cons
Best Uses
Standard
Comment:
Replaced a rain shower head that was horrible (due to relatively low water pressure).<br /><br />Even with the low water pressure, the FloWise has an excellent feel--not at all anemic. Plus, it's easy to adjust to a conventional flow rate for those who don't like the higher speed of the water-efficient setting.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
