There’s nothing quite like a long, hot shower, but shorter showers are one of the most impactful ways to conserve water and energy.

There are great technological improvements in heating water - especially with heat pump water heaters but human behaviour remains one of the most significant opportunities for water and energy savings. When people embrace behaviour change the sky is the limit. 

Did you know that heating water is one of the most energy-intensive applications, accounting for ~27% of total household energy consumption?

A standard showerhead uses around 2.5 gallons / 9.5 litres of water per minute. With an average shower duration of 8 minutes, water use alone is  ~20 gallons / 76 litres. Children regularly shower for 15 minutes or longer, presenting even greater opportunities for water,  energy and cost savings. 

By choosing to have a 4-minute shower, each of us can make a significant impact to reduce our carbon footprint, conserve water and reduce household costs.

A 'piece of cake' to install and we've been using it for nearly 3 months. The savings are much larger than expected simply by shortening the length of our showers. Our energy and water bills are normally staggering and it has paid for itself in under 3 months. Really impressive gadget.

I love this product. We nag our kids a lot less and they've learned a lot about how a simple decision to have a shorter shower can have a big impact. Ideal for families with kids looking for ways to save money and learn about conservation.

Really surprised by how much money we can save with shorter showers. We had no idea we were literally pouring money down the drain.

This is such a simple solution that has taught our family to save water and energy. It's already paid for itself many times over.
