About David MalcomOperating from Coarsegold, California, a small Sierra Nevada town not far from Yosemite National Park, David Malcolm has been designing and manufacturing high-efficiency nozzles, known as FCI nozzles. These nozzles have been used in agricultural and golf course sprinkler irrigation for more than 15 years.

The result of Malcolm’s experimentation was a nozzle that mechanically explodes a stream of water into a controlled shower of large, soft droplets that are uniform in size and distribution.  In 2006, Malcolm saw the startling potential this new spray nozzle technology had to form the basis of a 1.5 gpm* low flow shower head that would provide a pleasing, stimulating shower while saving water, energy, and money.

Today, the new 1.5 gpm* High Sierra Showerheads® are in full production and are catching on quickly.  They incorporate a proven, non-plugging design that creates the feel of a conventional showerhead  but uses 40% less water.   David Malcolm was awarded a patent for his nozzle technology in 2007.  A second patent is pending for the showerhead.
