..with record breaking temperatures and all of us looking for ways to keep cool, it’s no surprise we’re all using lots of water. But how do we keep the water bill down when we’re constantly watering the garden, filling the paddling pool and drinking lots more icy drinks? We’ve a few tips up our (rolled up) sleeves for you..
Hot weather means more showers, but doesn’t have to mean more water use. Using a water limiter like this one can help you save water and money, as it limits the amount of water that comes through your shower head, slightly increasing the water pressure as it does so.
If you’re unsure whether this low cost device will make a difference try this simple test:
Collect the water that comes out of your shower on its highest setting for 5 seconds. If you collect more than 750ml (about 26 fluid ounces) then a limiter like this can help you save.
Some showers aren’t compatible with these devises however. Check with the manufacturer before you buy
