Are You Wasting Water With Your Showerhead?
Did you know that replacing your showerhead can significantly reduce water usage? While taking shorter showers helps conserve water overall, there are other steps you can take to save even more. One such measure is replacing your showerhead with one more water efficient. With so many options available these days, it’s easy to find one that fits your needs and budget while still cutting down on how much water you use in the shower daily.
How much water do you use per day?
Energy efficiency and water conservation are becoming increasingly important. And considering that many cities and countries are experiencing droughts, it’s becoming even more important to pay attention to how much water and energy we consume. For example, the average person uses 340 litres of water daily, with 30% of that used for showering. So a water-efficient showerhead can save you up to 70,000+ litres of water per year. That’s a lot of savings! Not to mention, these types of showerheads are also energy efficient. So you’ll be seeing a positive impact on your energy bill, and you will be doing your part to save the planet as well!.
Low-flow, high-efficiency shower heads, how do they work?
Water-efficient showerheads use less water while still providing the same amount of pressure, meaning that you can save water and energy without sacrificing your comfort. Low-flow showerheads are also more energy efficient because they use less hot water, so your water heater doesn’t have to work as hard. Installing an aerating low-flow shower head can reduce your usage to around 9 litres per minute. In fact, showering with an aerating low-flow head is comparable to taking a sponge bath! Aerating shower heads get their name from the process of mixing air into the water stream. When this happens, it creates additional turbulence, which causes more surface area to be exposed to oxygen molecules. The result is a refreshingly invigorating feeling when you turn on the faucet.
