This water and energy saving showerhead work best with hot and cold mixer showers, thermostatic mixer showers and power showers. Eco Shower heads can be used with electric showers but they will generally not be able to give water or energy savings as electric showers regulates their own water flow. If this Eco shower head is used with an electric shower it will have the benefit of increasing pressure due to the aeration which is especially beneficial on low power 8 – 9.5 KW showers during winter when the water flow rate is very slow.
- Patented shower with up to 50% water saving compared to a conventional shower
- Full flow aerating shower with consistent spray pressure just as good as a conventional shower
- Independent testing has shown these shower heads can reduce your hot water bill by £75 per year** and reduce you metered water bill by £60 per year* in a typical property
- Lime scale build up prevention with wipe clean rubber nodules
- Helps you to reduce your carbon emissions protecting the environment
- Excellent value and water/ energy saving with performance better than market leading models.
- Fits onto a standard shower hose, simply screws on, no tools needed
- Has the added benefit of 5 different shower patterns, all with the same water/ energy saving properties.
- Self drains giving frost protection in motor home/ caravans
How it Works
A water saving aerating device is fitted to the base of the shower. Air is inhaled continuously into water stream through the venturi hole to create a mix of water and air, this speeds up the water stream leading to an improvement of the water pressure, meanwhile water would be saved as air takes up half of the space. When water reaches the skin, it explodes automatically giving a pressurized and oxygenised SPA and massage feeling, with an enhanced blood circulation effect.
- General residential usage
- University residences
- Motor homes
High pressure water flow (approx 30% less water/ energy usage), Conventional shower 13 Litres/ minute, Lowenergie shower 9.1 Litres/ minute
Low pressure water flow (approx 28% less water/ energy usage), Conventional shower 3.5 Litres/ minute, Lowenergie shower 2.5 Litres/ minute
Boat/ caravan/ motor home application (approx 25 35% less water/energy usage); Conventional shower 3.9 to 4.6 Litres/ minute, Lowenergie shower 2.9 Litres/ minute, or your previous 6 minute shower can now last 10 minutes before you run out of water (based on 30L usage).
* Metered Water savings. The metered water bill for a typical house can be 587 based on water consumption of 433 Litres per day. 433L x 365 days is 158,000L, therefore cost per litre of metered water is 0.37pence per litre. A typical shower for 6 minutes can use 60L of water, which costs 0.37p x 60 = 22p. Two showers per day x 365 days per year is 162, 35% water saving with this shower head saves £57 per year.
** Hot water gas savings 75 per year energy saving is based on an average efficiency conventional heating with separate hot water storage cylinder and a mixer shower. A typical shower could use 60 litres of hot water, which costs 7 kilowatt hours of gas to heat. Typical gas cost per KWhr is 4.3 pence, therefore 30 pence per shower. Based on two shower per day 365 days per year 30p x 2 x 365 = 219 hot water bill, 35% hot water saving is £76 per year
