Response from Kohler Product ExpertMar 28, 2018
Vector, my name is Jessica with Kohler Customer Service. I am sorry to hear you are not satisfied with the pressure of your Purist handshower. K-978-CP is a 1.75 gpm multifunction hand shower; it is WaterSense labled handshower that uses up to 30 percent less water than a standard 2.5 gpm handshower. If a larger gpm is more suitable for you, the following is a link to our current options: If you have further questions or need additional assistance, please contact our Customer Service team at We're happy to help! - Jessica P.
