Water Saving Shower Heads and Other Ways to Save Water in Your New Bathroom
One of the most common questions we are asked when designing and installing a new bathroom is “how can I use less water in my bathroom?”. Gary Fullwood Designed Living installs fabulous bathrooms and where possible ensures any new bathroom is water efficient. One easy way to save water in your bathroom is to install water saving showerheads. Water saving showerheads may be one of the smallest parts of a new bathroom but they can be one of the biggest water savers. But there are a couple of other ways your new bathroom can be more water efficient.
How Much Water Is being used?
Water is becoming a scarce resource and when we build new bathrooms, and kitchens, we bear this in mind. Wherever possible we include water saving ideas in every bathroom. It is estimated the average person in the UK uses a staggering 150 litres of water a day, that’s 75 2 litre coke bottles. Water usage is on the increase and it cannot be sustained. As leading bathroom designers and installers, Gary Fullwood Designed Living takes some responsibility for helping people save water and we do all we can within our designs to ensure so.
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.
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.
How to keep your new bathroom water efficient
Gary Fullwood Designed Living designs and installs the very best and most water efficient bathrooms in the UK. 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.
