Donald Trump calls for more powerful shower heads to help him maintain his ‘perfect’ hair
The US government has proposed changing the definition of a showerhead to allow increased water flow, following complaints from President Donald Trump about his hair routine.
Under a 1992 law, showerheads in the US are not allowed to produce more than 2.5 gallons (9.5l) of water per minute.
The Trump administration wants this limit to apply to each nozzle, rather than the overall fixture.
Consumer and conservation groups argue that it is wasteful and unnecessary.
The changes were proposed by the Department of Energy on Wednesday following complaints by Mr Trump at the White House last month.
“So showerheads - you take a shower, the water doesn’t come out. You want to wash your hands, the water doesn’t come out. So what do you do? You just stand there longer or you take a shower longer? Because my hair - I don’t know about you, but it has to be perfect. Perfect,” he said.
Andrew deLaski, executive director of the energy conservation group Appliance Standards Awareness Project, said the proposal was “silly”.
With four or five or more nozzles, “you could have 10, 15 gallons per minute powering out of the showerhead, literally probably washing you out of the bathroom,” he told the Associated Press news agency.
“If the president needs help finding a good shower, we can point him to some great consumer websites that help you identify a good showerhead that provides a dense soak and a good shower,” he added.
David Friedman, vice president of advocacy at the organisation Consumer Reports, said showerheads in the US already “achieve high levels of customer satisfaction”, while saving people money.
The proposal could face court battles if it advances, Reuters news agency reports.
I heard about this earlier today and it made me think about the Seinfeld episode.
We have a large vintage ceramic and brass shower head, with no limiter. Wouldn’t trade it for the world!

Learned how to fix this years ago. This is another one of those regulations that the rest of the world ignores. This means that the shower heads we get all have a “restrictor” insert inside the base just for the USA model. Usually plastic.
If you reach in with a pair of pliers you can pull this out and the water flow is back to what it was in the past. A real shower. If you are concerned about “wasting” water cleaning yourself, make up the difference by drinking something else all day and it evens out
I just saw a post about FBA pick and pack fees and it made me think of this gif
We solved this problem by googling high pressure shower heads
and arrived at a site that specializes in them.
We bought some and it did come with instructions on how to remove the “restrictor”
but we didn’t even have too.
The pressure and coverage of the shower heads are amazing.
Where I live the water is basically like rusty Liquid Limestone so when the shower starts getting “off” it usually just means time to soak the head in a container of vinegar again.
Sometimes it isn’t the “funny” things being posted that are the funniest.
You just cost me $80+ - found a specialty high pressure shower site and figured, let’s give it a try. The ceramic and brass one can take a break in the second bathroom.
Like our friend, @Aquaponic_Lynx_LLC, we have liquid limestone for water (thankfully no rust) and we never drink the stuff - we have spring water delivered for drinking.
Vinegar is our best friend.
