The Neco Showerhead (7.1 litres per minute)

While most water conservation suggestions would have you reaching for a showerhead rated to 2.5 gallon per minute (gpm) or 9.5 litres per minute (lpm), there are plenty of others that can trump this measure. And we’ve noted a few here, like the Tiara, Bricos, and one from Real Goods. Some of these, such as the Aqua Helix can get down to a very admirable 0.5 gpm (1.9 lpm), but many folk want to save water whilst also having a hearty shower too. The Neco Showerhead, at 7.1 litres per minute (or 1.9gpm), might just be an halfway house between the sublime and the ridiculous (being old style showers at 20+ lpm [5.3+ gpm] ). It is said to use a "patented vacuum flow technology", that renders a higher pressure than other low-flow showers, and they suggest you get a spray sensation greater than that of 9.5 lpm showerheads. $99 AUD.
