Shower head water usage and cost

If you suspect that your shower head uses too much water, probably it does.

It is rather easy to find out the water flow of a shower head and get to know if it is wasting or conserving water.

How much water does a shower head use

For example, we found out that our shower head was using 11 liters per minute and we thought that it was far too much water.

Then, we decided to install a flow reduction valve and we decreased the water usage to 7 liters per minute.

Water calculator

The calculator below can be used to estimate the shower head water flow, the water usage and cost over a period of time.

You just need to adjust the values in the PARAMETERS section to your requirements and the calculator will automatically display the RESULTS section.

 

We know that not everyone uses liters so if you are from the US or UK you can have a look to our water consumption calculators page for calculators that will convert litres to you water units.

Ways to water conservation

Water conservation can be defined as the decision and the act of using less water 

Water conservation both benefit you and the environment 

The act of saving and conserving water does benefit you because you will be paying less on your water bills. 

And it also does benefit the environment because conserving water prevents any unnecessary waste of natural resources.

Now, at individual level it may not look worth to try to save a few litres or gallons here or there. 

Still, every little counts and if hundreds or thousands of us do save a little every time, it will make an important contribution towards conserving our natural resources.

 

For example, if 9000 households would manage to save as little as 5 liters of water per day:

> Collectively, we would be saving over 16,000,000 liters of water per year!

> Collectively, assuming a cost of 2 euro per cubic meter of water, we would be saving nearly 33,000 euro per year!

It is clear that small water savings do really count when looking into the bigger picture.
