Why Install a High-Efficiency Showerhead?

Did you know that showering is the second largest water use in the home? Showering accounts for 19% of total residential indoor water use. That's approximately 15,336 litres per person per year, which is enough to fill almost 18,000 swimming pools per year across the Capital Region.

A family of three can save 11,000 litres of water or more a year by installing a WaterSense labeled high-efficiency showerhead. Reducing water in the shower will also save you money on your water and energy bills.

  • Save water, energy and money. Older showerheads have flow rates as high as 20 litres per minute. New showerheads use between 5.6 and 7.6 litres per minute, and use less than half of the water and energy that your old showerhead uses!
  • For a high quality shower. New high-efficiency showerheads reduce water use without sacrificing the quality of the shower. Many high-efficiency models feature multiple flow settings.
  • Help preserve the environment through reduced resource use. By saving water, your saving energy too!
