The average shower lasts eight minutes and can use almost as much water and energy as the average bath. According to research by Unilever, an eight-minute shower can use 76 litres of hot water, compared with an average bath's 80 litres. Research showed that if people were using a power shower - an appliance that adds extra pressure to the water flow - then an eight-minute shower would require twice as much water and energy as a bath. An average eight-minute shower per person would cost an average UK family £416 a year; using a power shower would see the annual bill soar to £918.
By using a shower timer to control your shower time to 5 Minutes max, and also by using on of our water saving shower heads, you could reduce your water consumption and hot water energy usage to just 37 Litres, saving around £214 per year.
The current recommendation is for people to take 4-minute showers saving even more. This is still easily achievable.
