Can a new Shower Head help you save money and water?

The Impact of Shower Head on Water Usage

At Emergency Plumbers Sydney, we are passionate advocates for water conservation. We firmly believe in the transformative power of small changes, especially when it comes to something as vital as water usage.

Standard shower heads have long been the norm, expelling water at a rate of 9 litres per minute. However, in our commitment to sustainability, we champion the use of eco-friendly shower heads, which operate at a significantly reduced flow rate of just 5 litres per minute.

While it’s true that eco-friendly shower heads deliver water at a slower rate, they do so without compromising on comfort or functionality. Through innovative design and advanced technology, these fixtures provide an optimal showering experience while minimizing water wastage.

The difference may seem small on an individual level, but the cumulative impact is substantial. By simply switching to eco-friendly shower heads, households can conserve significant amounts of water each day, ultimately contributing to a more sustainable future for our communities and the environment.

Empowering Change, One Installation at a Time

At Emergency Plumbers Sydney, we’re not just in the business of fixing pipes; we’re in the business of making a difference. By offering expert installation services for eco-friendly shower heads, we empower our clients to take proactive steps towards water conservation without sacrificing quality or convenience.

Think about it – every minute you shower, you save yourself and your local community 4 litres of water.

It all adds up

Calculating Savings: Every Drop Counts

Sydney Water charges Sydney residents $2.11 per kilolitre of water. Now, naturally, you use water from multiple taps – not just your bathroom shower.

But let’s say, your water bill is $150 per quarter. And 25% of it is from showers your family takes.

Your Shower head water usage would be $37.50. By installing a New Shower Head that used 5 litres instead of 4 litres per minute, you would reduce your Shower Costs by roughly $16.50.

Environmental Responsibility: Water Conservation Matters

Water is not just a resource; it’s the essence of life itself. In regions like New South Wales, Victoria, Western Australia, and the Northern Territory, both farmers and civilians are grappling with the harsh reality of drought.

A Lifeline Threatened

Amidst these arid conditions, water becomes more than a convenience; it becomes a lifeline for communities, ecosystems, and livelihoods. The Department of Meteorology paints a sobering picture, indicating that the dry spell across all states is projected to persist from July through September and possibly extend even further.

An Ecosystem in Peril

The impact of prolonged drought extends far beyond human consumption. It disrupts ecosystems, imperils wildlife, and jeopardizes agricultural yields. Rivers dry up, vegetation withers, and the delicate balance of nature is thrown into disarray.

A Call to Action

In the face of such challenges, it becomes imperative for individuals, communities, and governments to take decisive action. Water conservation isn’t merely an option; it’s a necessity for sustaining life, preserving ecosystems, and safeguarding the future.

Empowering Change

By raising awareness, implementing sustainable practices, and advocating for responsible water management, we can mitigate the effects of drought and ensure that this precious resource remains available for generations to come.

Taking Action: Steps Towards Conservation

Changing your Shower head is a step in the right direction

Though the savings in terms of money and water seem small, when individuals stand for change and make it – it all adds up in the end.

The more people who share articles like these, the more neighbours, friends and family you help understand water and the importance of treating it like the precious resource it is – the more you help conserve this resource so its value can be more profitably utilised.

There are easy ways to reduce water consumption

  • Reduce Shower Frequency: Consider cutting down on the number of showers you take each week to conserve water.
  • Upgrade Shower Heads: Switching to water-efficient shower heads is an effective way to minimize water usage during showers.
  • Shower Together: Share showers with your partner to further reduce water consumption by using less water for bathing.
  • Community Engagement: While it’s not practical to invite neighbors to shower, raising awareness about water conservation can inspire collective action.
  • Water-Wise Landscaping: Opt for drought-resistant plants like cacti in your garden to minimize outdoor water usage.
  • Fix Dripping Taps: Repairing leaking taps promptly can prevent water wastage and reduce your overall consumption.
  • Monitor Shower Duration: Limiting the number and length of showers can significantly decrease water usage without sacrificing personal hygiene.
