Are you considering an eco-friendly shower head to reduce water consumption in your bathroom? You’ve come to the right place. We’ve compiled a list of models that could match your needs and bathroom design.

By choosing a water saving hand shower you can save considerable amount of not only water but also energy.

Did you know that in an average European household, showering accounts for over a third of water use? The average shower consumes 45 litres of water, with a flow rate of 11 litres per minute [1]. As we become more aware of the challenges of a changing climate and strive to live more sustainably, water conservation has become a priority for many of us.

How can we become more aware and reduce water consumption when taking a shower? One option is to reduce shower time. But what if there was a way to cut our water consumption, without compromising on the comfort of a relaxing shower? The good news is that it’s all about efficiency.

 

The importance of good habits

Cutting shower time is about saving energy as water-heating is the second-largest energy expense within households, accounting for up to 18% of our utility bills.

When it comes to reducing energy consumption, forming good water-use habits is key. For that, we need to pay attention and track our shower behaviour.

Most of us are not aware of how long we shower or what temperature we usually set per default. That’s why we recommend shower heads that restrict the flow and temperature of your showers and help you track your consumption to form better habits.

 

What is a low-flow shower head?

 Shower systems are measured by flow (the number of litres they deliver per minute). The latest and most advanced water-saving technologies can restrict the volume of water that flows through the shower, keeping the amount of water released down to a minimum.

Oras' low-flow hand showers are specifically designed to reduce water consumption and can cut water flow by half, without impacting the comfort of your shower.
