American Standard now includes hand showers in its FloWise collection. The expanded FloWise line is designed to meet water-saving needs, and a family of four can save about 11,000 gallons of water annually by replacing an older showerhead with one of its 1.5gpm models, according to the company. Three-function showerheads and hand showers offer a 1.5gpm turbine spray as well as a full spray and a combination of the full and turbine sprays, both of which consume a maximum 2gpm. The collection comes in polished chrome, blackened bronze, polished brass, stainless steel, and satin nickel. americanstandard-us.com
