Short Description

For maximum water efficiency and ENERGY SAVINGS switch to a aerated shower head!

Long Description

For maximum water efficiency, change your showerhead to a low-flow model; preferably one with a flow rate less than 2.5 gallons per minute. By using less water in the shower you’re heating less water and therefore saving energy.

Here’s a quick way to test whether or not you should swich:

  1. Place a bucket – marked in gallon increments – under your showerhead.
  2. Turn the water on at the pressure you normally use to shower.
  3. Time how many seconds it takes to fill the bucket to the 1-gallon mark.

If it takes less than 20 seconds to reach the 1-gallon mark, you could definitely benefit from changing to a low-flow showerhead.
