Efficient Showers

Switching out your showerheads with water-efficient models is a simple way to help save money and live more sustainably.

Most modern showerheads can lower your water usage by up to 50% without any noticeable pressure loss. This means less energy is spent to heat it, less CO2 gets emitted into the air, and less wastewater.

Fixtures and appliances sold in Australia are required to show the product’s rate of water consumption and are given a star rating for easy comparison.

If you’re renting, discuss with your landlord the possibility of installing your own water efficient shower heads.
