It is estimated that 40% of the average household’s water consumption is used in the bathroom.
Low flow showerheads are a great water saving device and mandatory with most new installations. Most older shower heads will generally use up to 22 litres per minute, compared to a low flow showerhead which uses approximately 5.5 litres per minute. Even though the low flow showerheads use much less water, they still maintain good pressure.
The Australian Government has a Water Efficiency Labelling and Standards (WELS) scheme. This scheme requires products to be labelled with the National Water Efficiency Labelling and Standards Act 2005. The purpose of which is to understand which products are the most water-efficient.
