Do water saving shower heads really save water?

Water saving shower heads can reduce water use by an amazing 50%. This is 50% less water and 50% less cost. Water saving in the shower is achieved in two ways.  The first is the shower head itself and the second is by using a flow regulator.

Aerator Shower Heads

Water saving shower heads are called Aerator shower heads and work by mixing air into the flow of water to create larger water droplets. The larger droplets create what feels like a more powerful shower using more water.  Many people say that the showering experience is more refreshing and luxurious.  Aerator shower heads can be fitted to any shower with relative ease and there are many fabulous designs and styles that look great in any new bespoke kitchen.

Flow Regulators

As easy as using an aerator shower head, flow regulators can also help save a lot of water.  Modern boilers produce high pressure water flow and this often means homeowners are using more water than necessary.  Plumbing in a flow regulator for the shower reduces the amount of water used and saves water.  Working in combination with a water saving shower head, realistically, you have a better shower experience using much less water.

To ensure your bathroom remains water efficient you should regularly clean your shower head and ensure the nozzles are clear.  Blocked nozzles slow the flow of water and you end up using more to create the pressure you enjoy. Simple cleaning and maintenance can save you a lot of money on your water bills.
