6 Recommend Water Saving Shower Heads - Things to consider before you buy

Have you ever wondered how much water you and your family consume in the shower every day? And, more importantly, have you asked yourself what can you do to minimize the water usage and thus, your expenses, while still enjoying the benefits and pleasure of a nice shower?

It's time to take control over your expenses and help the environment at the same time! The simplest solution for obtaining maximum water pressure with a minimum water consumption is to buy a water-saving shower head, which has a flow rate of less than 2.5gpm (0.94 liters). They'll give a powerful jet while save water, energy and money! 

How much water can you save?

If each member of your family spends about 15 minutes each day in the shower and a regular shower head has a flow rate of 12-15 liters, your annual water saving will be 40,000 liters/year.Take into consideration the price of water, especially that of hot water, and you just made serious savings to your annual budget!

Types of low-flow shower heads

There are two basic types of low-flow shower heads: aerating and laminar-flow. Aerating shower heads mix water with air, forming a foggy spray. Laminar-flow are best suited for humid climates since hey won't create as much steam and moisture as an aerating one.
