Save money with a water-saving showerhead!

Saving water in your home

Use a water-saving shower head to cut down on your water consumption when showering without having to give up on comfort. There are, however, huge differences in terms of consumption, price, and quality. A regular shower head uses about 16 liters of water per minute. Savings of up to 50% (water, energy, and hence, your money) are realistic. In our opinion, hand-held shower heads with a consumption of less than 8 liters per minute cease to offer a comfortable and desirable shower experience. They simply use too little water.  There is a limit as to how much you can reduce the water flow rate—there comes a point when you simply don’t get properly wet anymore … A water-saving shower head with multiple settings options (e.g., massage jet) certainly offers an ideal combination of saving water and having an exclusive shower experience.

In addition, there are water-saving shower heads with, e.g., “Fog”, “Massage”, “Soft”, „Rain/Soft” jet types. If you are looking for a “Rain” shower head please make sure to check that the shower head is 110mm in diameter or more. As a general rule, the larger the shower disc the softer and more comortable the water jet. Modern water-saving shower units are mostly very pleasing to the eye and now offer a shower experience very similar to that of hand-held shower heads.

To make sure your water-saving showerhead enjoys a long lifecycle, we recommend the following care: Never use abrasive cloths or detergents. You should also avoid the use of detergents containing solvents or acids, descaling agents, distilled white vinegar, and detergents with acetic acids. They all have corrosive properties—your shower head will get scratched and lose its shine. Simply use mild soap and a slightly wet cloth to polish your shower head. Then rinse and dry it. Drying your shower head after each use will avoid the buildup of limescale.

If you want to save water without replacing your existing shower head we recommend purchasing a flow restrictor. This upgrade product is screwed onto the shower hose at the water outlet. It is easy to fit and you can save a lot of water this way.

And finally, another, slightly less serious tip for saving water in your home—if you don’t shower alone, you can save at least another 50% of water and energy …
