The Biden administration is reversing a showerhead rule put in place last year after Trump complained he couldn’t get enough water out of his shower to do his hair just right.
The rule involves how much water should flow through a showerhead. A federal law enacted in 1992 requires no more than 2.5 gallons of water flow through a showerhead per minute.
In 2013, President Barack Obama’s administration put in place water conservation standards dictating that, in fixtures with several showerheads, the nozzles should collectively count toward that limit.
The Trump administration modified the rule late last year to allow each showerhead to use the 2.5-gallon-per-minute maximum.
The change came Trump after groused there wasn’t enough water when he took a shower.
The Biden administration said Friday it is going back to the Obama-era rule, which it projected would save consumers $38 on their energy and water bills annually.
A notice of the rule change will be published in the Federal Register. The public will then have 60 days to comment.
