I agree 100%.
There appears to be a gas can / spout design that might work for me. 1973shovel posted a link further down this thread. The ones I saw at my local stores were total garbage.
Low flow shower heads, low-flow faucets, low capacity toilets, etc are a pain. I used to shower longer and flush more which doesn't save water, it just wastes time. I drill out the flow restrictor in our shower heads. ;-)
You reminded me: I need to go to the plumbing supply store (not HD or L) and get a flow restrictor for our shower head. The water just blows straight through the 5/8" (?) pipe and out the head. WAY more water than I need.
On the other hand, I take out the flow restrictor from my yard/foundation soaker hose. I mean, really, I should be able to soak the house foundation in a reasonable amount of time, instead of having to think about it and checking it all f-ing day or night.
With regard to low-flow faucets... don't even get me started. Example: For the AES convention in L.A. in 2014, I stayed at the "downtown" Sheraton (now part of Starwood). First, the hotel was something like $200 per night (advance purchase). Then, they charged $40 a night to park my car in their garage. Course, the valet also wanted a tip. Plus, the taxes that the City, County and State wanted - to get "their share". So, with that as a setting, I was in my Sheraton hotel room trying to get some warm water. Seriously, and I'm not kidding, it took damn near two minutes to fill a plastic cup with warm water!! Why? Because they had a flow restrictor on the faucet! I will NOT stay there EVER again.
And lets not forget those hotels that over soften their water. Makes you feel so slimy and unable to get the soap off under the low pressure shower head!
I had similar water gushing results when removing a shower head flow restrictor in one of our showers. Instead, I drilled a couple extra holes (slightly larger holes) into the plastic restrictor and that seemed to do the trick.
