San Francisco Hotels: Showerheads

The SFPUC offers free showerhead fixtures for businesses!

Showerheads must meet federal EPA WaterSense criteria of 2.0 gpm or less, or meet the hotel's published minimum showerhead flow rate policy, not to exceed the federal code of 2.5 gpm (EPAct 1992, EPAct 2005).

Showerheads shall meet all other San Francisco Plumbing Code requirements including: no more than one showerhead per valve; "showerheads" include rain heads, rain tiles, and any other fitting that transmits water for the purpose of showering and as such the maximum flow rates noted above shall apply to all these fixtures (City and County of San Francisco Plumbing Code, Chapter 4: Plumbing Fixtures and Fixture Fittings).
