High Sierra Showerheads® not only look different from other shower heads, they use a completely different technology. Each model features our exclusive and patented (U.S. patent #7,185,830) nozzle, which is designed to break up a stream of water into an amazingly strong spray of large drops—from only 1.5 or 1.8 gpm*.
Practically all of our competitors shower heads are miniaturized versions of outdated, high-flow designs that divide a stream of water into 50 or more streams, which is why they fail in strength of spray, ability to retain heat, and ability to resist clogging. Our Full Coverage Spray™ (FCS™) nozzle is a new invention. It has never been used in higher-flowing shower heads because it is designed to work at 1.5 or 1.8 gpm and works best at 1.5 and 1.8 gpm.
Although technically a low flow shower head, we like to say that High Sierra Showerheads® are better than low flow … they are the right flow!
Maintenance-Free and Will Not Clog
Hard water build-up and the resulting clogging has always been an issue with most shower heads because they divide a single stream of water into as many as 100 little streams.
As flow rates drop to under 2 gpm to conserve water, clogging becomes an even bigger problem. The High Sierra Showerhead's patented nozzle uses only one orifice to create the spray, making it very unlikely that hard water will ever affect the flow or spray.
Patented green technology saves water and money!
Saves as much as $50 in water heating costs and 1700 gallons of water per person/per year! Source: Aquacraft Engineering Study; Residential End Uses of Water.
All High Sierra Showerheads® perform best at, and deliver a flow rate of, only 1.5 or 1.8 gpm*. This is at least 40% less than conventional low flow shower heads.
In addition to the water savings, the cost of heating the water is reduced by the same percentage.
When you combine the savings of water and the energy to heat it, the payback on your investment is usually less than 3 months. When compared to other water-saving devices, 1.5 or 1.8 gpm shower heads offer the fastest return on investment. But no other 1.5 or 1.8 gpm shower head can achieve this amazingly fast payback without clogging or producing a disappointing spray.
In the words of one satisfied customer: "I currently have one shower head of yours and it is fantastic … you can't even tell it's low flow. So, I ordered a second one and ran the calculations … with our family of seven, I expect to see a reduction of nearly $40 in electrical usage a month and 2,000 gallons of water. This is unequivocally the best new product out there!"
*Accuracy of flow rate is ± 10% between 30 psi and 80 psi

Solid Metal and Built in the USA
Using foreign and domestic solid metal parts, High Sierra Showerheads® are 100% built in our factory located in the Sierra Nevada foothills, not far from Yosemite. We are a “California Certified Small Business.”
Solid Metal Construction
All High Sierra Showerheads® aremade of metal. Their core parts are made of solid plated brass and stainless steel. Their tips and other decorative parts are made from heavy-duty plated aluminum. Their non-metal seals and flow-regulator are also made from a quality material: silicone rubber, a non-reactive material widely used in medical and food industry applications.
There are significant advantages to all-metal shower head designs. One is longevity. All-metal construction is more solid and lasts years longer than plastic.
The other huge advantage is that solid metal High Sierra Showerheads® are naturally antibacterial. In addition, our unique, single-nozzle design is more likely to inhibit bacteria than all other shower heads because it drains fully after each use.
