I use one of these in both of my showers to conserver water. I included a 0.5/0.75/1/1.5/2/2.5mm orifice water saver disc as different people have different wants and water pressure (mine is very high and I use the 0.75mm size where I get ~0.8gpm out of a 2.5gpm shower head. The 2mm is about 1.5gpm and the 2.5mm is ~2-2.25gpm all at full force so you can turn down the faucets to lower it even more).
This is a simple item to make for a 3d Printer or 3 axis CNC. While this is being made you need to remove your current shower head, and the old teflon tape over the threads. Remove the washer from your shower head and pop in the disc you just made then put the washer back in over the disc. Use your new teflon tape on the threads and replace your shower head that has now been transformed into an ultra water saving device.
