Retrofit showerheads

Replacing showerheads with WELS 3 star rated models or better can reduce the flow rate by over 50%. It’s an easy and inexpensive way to save water and in most cases, the payback period is under 12 months.

Shower use is generally controlled by the user, so a water efficient showerhead will achieve the greatest savings. Further reduce water use with timers or spring loaded push button shower taps, so that water turns off automatically.

The user’s perception of shower quality is an important consideration, when retrofitting your site remember to let your staff and customers know about the changes and the reasons you are making them.
