Tips For Choosing A Water-Saving Shower

People are more mindful of the water they are using than ever before, and because of this, they want to do their utmost to ensure that they don’t waste any water they don’t need.

There are plenty of places where you can save water in your home but the one with the most potential to save a lot of money is making small adjustments to your shower hardware.

Showers in general use less water than baths, but the longer the shower, the more water is used, and power showers can use as much water in five minutes as it would take to fill a bathtub.

However, there are plenty of ways to get that refreshing power shower feeling without the water expense that comes with it. Here are some top tips when choosing a water-saving shower system.


Look For A Shower Timer

Some showers have water timers that automatically shut off the water after a certain time, guaranteeing that you will make water savings.

Whilst this takes a bit of getting used to unless you have a particularly efficient routine, they can help cut your water bills if you have the discipline.


Know Your Shower Type

There are plenty of shower types out there, from ones that are literally connected to the tap, to electric showers, manual mixers and power showers.

Some of these are better suited to some water-saving features than others, whilst power showers tend to be far more wasteful than the average.

For example, electric showers tend to have built-in eco-settings that save water automatically, which makes them less suited for use with water-saving shower heads.


Fixed Or Movable?

Fixed shower heads, or shower nozzles that are fitted into the shower or wet room itself are much harder to replace with eco-friendly alternatives, so your option is to either not use them, or focus on other forms of water saving such as shower timers.
