The flow rate of a shower head is measured in GPM and is a critical factor in sizing a water heater, or for evaluating if an older fixture is wasting water. The Federal Energy Policy Act of 1992 required all shower fixtures made in the USA to have a flow rate of no more than 2.2 GPM at 60 PSI. Older showers however had a flow of more than the 2.2GPM.
